Actions on release aren't running

We had an action for an open source repo, that automatically creates and publishes npm packages ‘on release’. This worked until yesterday.

It’s a classic: “Nothing changed but it stopped working”-issue, which might mean we did change something but I don’t know what.

This has happened for our last 2 releases, 2 different repos:

Repo 1:

https://github.com/curveball/a12n-server
https://github.com/curveball/a12n-server/releases/tag/v0.19.12
https://github.com/curveball/a12n-server/blob/a3241299d77ec16c8cfc2b3e549dc6f8ddd2102e/.github/workflows/npm-publish.yml
Action list: https://github.com/curveball/a12n-server/actions/workflows/npm-publish.yml

Repo 2:

https://github.com/curveball/browser
https://github.com/curveball/browser/releases/tag/v0.16.4
https://github.com/curveball/browser/blob/dda822f630cd5bbce5789d71a8e2d3164697ea4f/.github/workflows/npm-publish.yml
Action list: https://github.com/curveball/browser/actions/workflows/npm-publish.yml

Any guidance with this is appreciated!

(I had to put the links in code blocks in order to avoid the ‘maximum 2 links’ filter)

I have a test repo for Actions, one of which is triggered on release. I’ve just tried it and my release action runs as expected. One difference I notice is you are triggering when a release is created but my actions trigger when a release is published. I don’t know if that will make a difference but it might be worth trying if your release actions still aren’t running.

on:
  release:
    types: [published]
    branches: [master]
