Hi @Jin Wu,

The API endpoint you mention in your question can be used to get or update an existing build status.

If you'd like to add a new status, you'll need to use


There is an example also in the above doc:

curl -X POST -u jdoe -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{
"key": "MY-BUILD",
"state": "SUCCESSFUL",
"description": "42 tests passed",
"url": ""

The key can be any value you like, but I suggest that it is unique among that commit's statuses. If the specified key already exists, the existing status object will be overwritten.

If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know.

Kind regards,
