Create a workflow status badge

 It's common nomenclature for GitHub repositories to have a file at the root of the repository directory. Likewise, it's nice to report the latest status for various workflows. All workflows can generate a status badge, which are visually appealing within the file. To add the workflow status badge:

  • From the GitHub repository select the Actions navigation option.
  • All repository workflows are displayed on the left-side, select the desired workflow and the ellipsis (...) button.
  • The ellipsis (...) button expands the menu options for the selected workflow.
  • Select the Create status badge menu option.
  • Select the Copy status badge Markdown button.
  • Paste the Markdown into the file, save the file, commit and push the changes.
