Frequently Asked Question (FAQ)

  1. Why can’t I see any builds in Jira?

    There are a few reasons for this:

    • The description from Percy exceeded 255 characters. While we do our best to truncate it before sending it to Jira API, there are other inputs such as emojis which will go beyond the limited character length.
  2. Why does the development panel showing failed builds and not the latest build?

    Unfortunately this is controlled by Atlassian. In their documentation for development panel, a red status lozenge will show “if at least one run failed for any build by any linked build server”.
