Hi, wonder if anyone can help with what seems like I’m missing something obvious.
We have a branch which builds via an action on hosted runners no problem. However when a PR is created from it, the same build then fails. It’s a very simple action with nothing different about building it on a pr vs a branch builds in the yaml.
Any ideas at all!?
And, on a completely different note, do you think Github would ever publish the iac that they use to build the hosted runners, so we could build our own but with more cores/ram? Or even what stack the runners are built with presumably using iac?
Hi @andrewgbell - I’m not sure offhand, how is the PR job failing?
As for your question about the hosted runners, our virtual environments are open source; we build our VM images using Packer and all the configuration for our different environments is in the repo.
