            Github Actions badge shows no status
            Asked 2022-Apr-17 at 20:08

            I have run many times github actions on my repo without problem and with the same script on one of my repo it is displaying “no status”. The repo is: I dont understand why it is not displaying a status as the workflow runs correctly… Any help would be great thank you

            notice my svg badge also shows "no status" at and at . (following what is in this post : or in this post Github Actions badge shows "No status")

            I also tried to duplicate the code in another fresh repo ( ) and it is the same, the badge shows no status, so it has nothing to do with the fast forward merge issue from here

            Edit : solved with the answer below, but i deleted the initial repo and kept only the fresh one if you try to follow the links

            For some reason you have to use the workflow name instead of the yaml file name. This worked for me

            all github action jobs are queued and never running
            Asked 2022-Feb-10 at 23:35


            2~3days After, my job is failed automatically with below message

            I have some trouble all github action jobs are queued and never executed.

            I have checked Github action status on

            but canont find something down or trouble sign.

            With many searching, I found this thread

            It looks so old trouble. so stranger. on other repository, github action is working well.

            After github action incident on Feb 5, It looks like (even now) not working on many images except 'ubuntu'.

            Update runs-on tag to ubuntu latest, I pushed commit then finally github picks my ci/cd jobs.

            I used node alpine image originally

            old answers

            I found incidents in github page when I faced that error.

            Maybe that affects queued status.



            GitHub reusable workflow: use latest commit
            Asked 2022-Feb-10 at 20:00

            I'm setting up a reusable workflow using GitHub actions:

            Since the calling workflow and called workflow are both in the same repo, I want to reference the latest commit of the called workflow inside my calling workflow's uses statement.




            Answered 2021-Nov-08 at 21:48

            Unfortunatelly, it's not possible to use expressions with uses now.

            One possible workaround (that I used for myself) is to push reusable workflow(s) to one of the stable branches (main/master/develop/etc.) and use SHA as a ref.

            Additional benefit here is that using SHA is actually the recommended way described here.

            Marking GitHub actions workflow as failed if a single job fails in matrix
            Asked 2022-Jan-24 at 22:23

            When running a GitHub Actions matrix workflow, how can we allow a job to fail, continue running all the other jobs, and also mark the workflow itself as failed?

            Below in this image, you can see that the workflow passes even after a job failed. We need to mark the workflow as failed in this case.

            Here is the small portion of my workflow yaml file. continue-on-error line will continue the workflow even if a job fails but how do we get the whole workflow marked as failed?



            Answered 2022-Jan-24 at 22:21

            Use fail-fast: false for the strategy and don't set continue-on-error on the job.



            Unable to get release title in github actions
            Asked 2022-Jan-20 at 18:07

            I've added github action that sends a message on our slack channel on every release.

            I've managed to get repo name and tag from github context, but I'm also trying and failing to get release title and release notes in that message. I've tried these combinations:



            Answered 2022-Jan-17 at 17:15

            Instead of triggering on the tag, trigger on the release creation. That way the release information will be present.



            Automatic merging of Dependabot generated Pull Request with codeowners file and branch protection rule?
            Asked 2022-Jan-20 at 09:46


            Answered 2022-Jan-20 at 09:46

            As of right now, a GitHub app cannot be added to CODEOWNERS as quoted here.

            Thank you for being here! Currently, GitHub Apps can’t be used in CODEOWNERS – that’s not supported. It’s something the team is considering for the future, and I’ll be sure to add your use case to the internal feature request.

            However, what you can do, is to use a GitHub personal access token generated by yourself as explained in the documentation here, then add it as a secret and use it in your workflow. See the GitHub Documentation .

            The last step of your action would then reference your self-defined secret. In the below example, I assume it's called MYTOKEN

            Install github-action

            You can run a build step before starting tests.
            If you want to overwrite the install command. See example-install-command.yml workflow file.
            You can overwrite ci-build-id used to link separate machines running tests into a single parallel run. Tip: see GitHub Actions environment variables and expression syntax.
            If you re-run the GitHub workflow, if you use the same custom build id during recording, the Dashboard will cancel the run with "Build already finished" error. To avoid this, you need to generate a new custom build id on every workflow re-run. A good solution showing in the example-custom-ci-build-id.yml file is to run a common job first that just generates a new random ID. This ID can be used by the testing jobs to tie the build together. If the user re-runs the workflow a new unique build id is generated, allowing recording the new Dashboard run. See the example-custom-ci-build-id.yml for the full workflow.
            Sometimes you may want to run additional commands between installation and tests. To enable this use the install and runTests parameters. See cypress-gh-action-monorepo for working example.
            Finally, you might not need this GH Action at all. For example, if you want to split the NPM dependencies installation from the Cypress binary installation, then it makes no sense to use this action. Instead you can install and cache Cypress yourself. See cypress-gh-action-split-install for working example.
            If the project has many dependencies, but you want to install just Cypress you can combine this action with actions/cache and npm i cypress commands yourself.
            This action installs local dependencies using lock files. If yarn.lock file is found, the install uses yarn --frozen-lockfile command. Otherwise it expects to find package-lock.json and install using npm ci command. This action uses several production dependencies. The minimum Node version required to run this action depends on the minimum Node required by the dependencies.
