Problem adding Jenkins Status badges to GitHub

Hi there, I am doing everything exatly as pointed out in the videos but Im not getting the status to refresh on github. You can see that after a pair of failed attempts; I managed to configure the webhooks correctly:

but later, the status doesnt update on the README.md file:

even though I can see from the Jenkins server that it is triggering a new build just by updating the README.md file several times:

This is my github profile:
This is my jenkins server:


  • @donquijotedelasnubes have you configured your github credentials on Jenkins server ?

  • Hello,
    The same issue, however, am I using ngrok.

  • @gouravshah , yes I've done it, in fact when I copy some of the other links I can see that it's working, but with the one that updates automatically on gitHub, it doesn't. I have finished the chapter 9 of your course now, and so far this is the only thing that haven't worked for me :'(

  • Hi @donquijotedelasnubes , I'll do a test case to see if I can reproduce the issue. It will take some time and I'll give you feedback as soon as I have done it.

    thanks @luisviveropena... this is my problem:

    these ones work

    but these ones doesn't:
    Build Status

  • Hi @donquijotedelasnubes , can you tell us what are the differences between both systems? What I would do in that case is to compare OS's, software versions, etc., anything that can explain the different behaviors.


  • hi, between what systems? my jenkins container is running on top of an Ubuntu VM over Digital Ocean. My only problem here is that the embeddable build status is not working, I just copy and paste it from Jenkins to Github, and it doesn't update during the build, or after the build.
