How do I make a Gitlab badge for a scheduled nightly build?

I have added the example pipeline status badge to our project, but I assume that just shows the status of the most recent pipeline run.

How can I make a separate badge for just a scheduled nightly build?

Good question! If your schedule runs on a special branch, then you can use that:

[![pipeline status](](

if the schedule runs on a branch you use for other things, then this issue suggests that you probably can’t easily create a badge. Presumably you could use some other badge service and the API, but it sounds awkward.


Thanks for the quick response. It is the same master branch in both cases. Hmm

I created an alias for my branch using git symbolic-ref refs/heads/main refs/heads/master but sadly “main” did not appear in the dropdown list for branches in the schedule ui
