Cannot pass inputs with local actions

I tried Docker container actions tutorial.

Cannot work private action.

I created simple sample. 

  • public.yml

  - Use public action.

  • main.yml

  - Use private action in .github/actions

  • local.yml

  - Use private action in root, but cannot pass the inputs

I think same main.yml and local.yml.

But the result is different.

  • main.yml


  • local.yml


local is cannnot pass who-to-greet

This is a bug? Or specification?


This is due to incorrect action.yml under root directory.

The action metadata file should be named as ‘action.yml’, there is an extra ‘s’ in your file name.
