Project badges API

Introduced in GitLab 10.6.

Placeholder tokens

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

  • %{project_path}: will be replaced by the project path.
  • %{project_id}: will be replaced by the project id.
  • %{default_branch}: will be replaced by the project default branch.
  • %{commit_sha}: will be replaced by the last project’s commit sha.
