Group badges API

Introduced in GitLab 10.6.

Placeholder tokens

Badges support placeholders that are replaced in real time in both the link and image URL. The allowed placeholders are:

  • %{project_path}: replaced by the project path.
  • %{project_id}: replaced by the project ID.
  • %{default_branch}: replaced by the project default branch.
  • %{commit_sha}: replaced by the last project’s commit SHA.

Because these endpoints aren’t inside a project’s context, the information used to replace the placeholders comes from the first group’s project by creation date. If the group hasn’t got any project the original URL with the placeholders is returned.
