I added a manual approval "trigger_rollback" job recently to my Circle 2.0 workflow and did not like the UI integration with github. On builds where I did not trigger this optional "trigger_rollback" job, the overall Github status was "Some checks haven't completed yet." (See screenshot.)
I talked to CircleCI support and they told me to deselect the status check for a "type: approval" job as described in this github article: https://circleci.com/docs/2.0/workflows-waiting-status/, which I had already done.
I still need the "trigger_rollback" job and corresponding status check. The "trigger_rollback" status check is type:approval, so I want it to be pending but I don't want the overall PR status to be pending -- instead I want the overall PR status to be green and say "All checks have passed."
