I have a GitHub Action that triggers on
push to a specific branch. This works as intended. This action ran six days ago, but was then manually re-run by someone clicking the
Re-run jobs button from the GitHub UI about an hour ago.
The GitHub UI now shows, “Triggered via push 1 hour ago”.
While the time is accurate, the trigger is not — it was triggered via push 6 days ago, but was triggered by a manual button click 1 hour ago.
This unfortunately caused some headaches as we spent time during an active incident trying to figure out why the action re-ran an hour ago, when no push was made to that branch at that time.
