Blocking Job or Step - For Approval or manual continuation

I’m excited about the addition of a manual triggering of a workflow. Great job team. Much appreciated. This adds a whole new level of usability for us.

I’m hoping to find a way to pause a workflow and a particular step and get user input/approval to continue. For instance, perform 3 jobs, then have a job that will pause and wait for interaction or input from a user before continuing with the other jobs. This is something that exists in some other solutions and I’m curious if it’ something that might work here.

Any information would be appreciated.


Hi @kpeterson-sf,

Glad to see you in Github Community Forum!

Currently it’s only supported to manually trigger the whole workflow not for jobs or steps.

Your idea is quite valuable! According to the policy, it’s recommended to raise a feature_request ticket in below link where github product manager will take a review, it will raise its priority and promote the improvement.[category]=actions



Thanks I’ve submitted the feedback requeset.

Is there a way to see the status of feedback? I didn’t get a confirmation or anything after submitting.

Hi @kpeterson-sf,

Thanks for sharing! We agree. I can confirm that approval flows are on our roadmap to build.
