Customize status message from Checks?


Is it possible to customize the message that is displayed in the PR status section for a check run? Right now it seems to display a generic message based on the conclusion of the check. It would be great if apps were able to put a customized message in the status as well, to give users more information at a glance without needing to click into the check run itself.



@aergonaut :wave: the answer is no, this is not customizable at the moment. This is valuable product feedback and I’m gonna pass it to the corresponding team :bowing_man:


Thanks @vroldanbet


It would also be great to be able to customize the name of the status. It shows the name of the check run right now, but it would be cool if we could customize it to say something more informative. Or even if the status included the app’s name or login in it somehow. If a PR has a lot of apps creating checks on it, it would be nice to be able to focus in on statuses created by particular apps at a glance, with something other than the app’s icon.
