Missing "Approve and Run" button

I am an admin on a repo that an external contributor has just contributed a Pull Request to: https://github.com/The-Peoples-Pantry/website/pull/490

Actions were not run against their Pull Request by default since they’re a first time contributor, but now I have approved their PR and I’d like to run the actions. I’m following the advice on Approving workflow runs from public forks - GitHub Docs but I’m not seeing the expected “Approve and run” button on the workflow:

Under the Actions Permissions settings for the repository I’ve selected:

  • Allow all actions
  • Require approval for all outside collaborators
  • Read repository contents permission

Based on the advice in the linked article, this seems like a bug to me and I should be able to see a button to approve the Pull Request and run the associated actions.


Just chiming in to say that I’m seeing the same problem on one of my public repos. Both of these pull requests are from first time contributors, and I do not see the expected “Approve and Run” button on either:

I’m experiencing exactly the same issue. PR from a first-time contributor, all checks displays Expected — Waiting for status to be reported, no ‘Approve and run’ button.

Here’s another instance of the same problem: Identified external dependencies with `js` color palette by daniellockyer · Pull Request #234 · jonhoo/inferno · GitHub

Same here. People are opening PR’s for my public repo but there’s no “Approve and run” anywhere.

Got the same issue: Remove junit4 by martinda · Pull Request #78 · tudortimi/gradle-hdvl · GitHub (can’t embed screenshot yet, due to user level).

Facing same issue, Not getting “approve and run” button, Gone through pretty much all the settings in org as well as repo, as admin, Still nothing.

Same issue with Change scim2-filter-parser pin to lower bound by andersk · Pull Request #73 · 15five/django-scim2 · GitHub. I submitted a bug ticket to Github.
