Easily upload coverage reports to Codecov from GitHub Actions

The latest release of this Action adds support for tokenless uploads from GitHub Actions!


To integrate Codecov with your Actions pipeline, specify the name of this repository with a tag number (@v1 is recommended) as a step within your workflow.yml file.

If you have a private repository, this Action also requires you to provide an upload token from (tip: in order to avoid exposing your token, store it as a secret). Optionally, you can choose to include up to four additional inputs to customize the upload context. For public repositories, no token is needed

Inside your .github/workflows/workflow.yml file:

- uses: actions/checkout@master
- uses: codecov/codecov-action@v1
    token: ${{ secrets.CODECOV_TOKEN }} # not required for public repos
    file: ./coverage.xml # optional
    files: ./coverage1.xml,./coverage2.xml # optional
    flags: unittests # optional
    name: codecov-umbrella # optional
    fail_ci_if_error: true # optional (default = false)
    verbose: true # optional (default = false)

Note: This assumes that you've set your Codecov token inside Settings > Secrets as CODECOV_TOKEN. If not, you can get an upload token for your specific repo on Keep in mind that secrets are not available to forks of repositories.


Codecov's Action currently supports five inputs from the user: token, file, flags,name, and fail_ci_if_error. These inputs, along with their descriptions and usage contexts, are listed in the table below:

tokenUsed to authorize coverage report uploadsRequired for private repos
filePath to the coverage report(s)Optional
filesComma-separated paths to the coverage report(s)Optional
directoryDirectory to search for coverage reports.Optional
flagsFlag the upload to group coverage metrics (unittests, uitests, etc.). Multiple flags are separated by a comma (ui,chrome)Optional
env_varsEnvironment variables to tag the upload with. Multiple env variables can be separated with commas (e.g. OS,PYTHON)Optional
nameCustom defined name for the uploadOptional
fail_ci_if_errorSpecify if CI pipeline should fail when Codecov runs into errors during upload. Defaults to falseOptional
path_to_write_reportWrite upload file to path before uploadingOptional
verboseSpecify whether the Codecov output should be verboseOptional
working-directoryDirectory in which to execute codecov.shOptional
xcode_derived_dataCustom Derived Data Path for Coverage.profdata and gcov processingOptional
xcode_packageSpecify packages to build coverage. Uploader will only build these packages. This can significantly reduces time to build coverage reports. -J ‘MyAppName’ Will match “MyAppName” and “MyAppNameTests” -J ‘^ExampleApp$’ Will match only “ExampleApp” not “ExampleAppTests”Optional
