Builds of public GitHub repository not accessible anonymously


I’m a member of two GitHub organizations with open-source public repositories, and I am observing a strange problem:

What is the difference that makes CircleCI and how to get rid of the HTTP 404?

I cannot find anything in the CircleCI docs that would explain how to control visibility of the builds.
The project settings in the CircleCI app do not seem to offer anything related either.

Best regards,

Hi @mloskot,

Hmm, I’m able to see all three project pages on CircleCI as an anonymous user—which is expected behavior for open-source projects.

Steps to verify:

  1. Open incognito tab
  2. Navigate to the three URLs in question

Hmm, I think you are right, I eventually can access it as anonymous user.
Interestingly, 1 in 3-5 tries, I get 404 and I have to hit the page reload 1-2 times to get it loaded. Possibly, that is a local problem on my end. I’m on 100Mbps fibre though, using Firefox w/o ad-blockers, etc. No idea.

Anyhow, my apologies for false alarm

Best regards,
Mateusz Loskot

Strange, could be a cookies issue, I know also that our URLs are case-sensitive even though GitHub’s aren’t, which can cause false 404s. No worries!
