Github Default Branch Renames Not Picked Up

When renaming our default branch in GitHub our Circle checks against PRs continued to work but our checks after PR merge did not. Luckily in my prep research I had come across this previously raised issue and was able to remediateCircleCI doesn’t notice when github default branch is updated

Since many orgs use Github and are in the process of renaming their default branches, is this something that is on your radar to fix soon or document somewhere other than this forum?

Hi and welcome to the forum!

One of our employees recently added a support center article on this issue, including the steps mentioned in that Discuss post: VCS Default Branch Isn’t Reflected on CircleCI.

Thanks to your feedback, I updated the article to include which features might be affected (such as status checks)! Please let me know if there’s any additional information you think should be included!

Thank you again!
