Need more information on github-actions[bot]


I would like to request more information about github-actions[bot]. I am trying to understand how it works and what it can do.


What do you want to know about it?

It’s just a bot account that is used to be recognized as something that was triggered from a GitHub action.

Any feedback that your workflows will send to your repository will happen as this user. See it as any other Git user, it can basically run actions against your repository.
