Path filtering on newly created branches.

We have the following use-case:

  • Create a new branch locally
  • Generate a commit that changes one file
  • Push new branch with commit
  • GA will ignore path filtering and will execute all the workflows.

Is making path filtering work in thise use-case this something that you’re planning to support? Otherwise I have to start looking into hacking our workflows so they short-circuit in this use-case

Hi Marco,

I believe the udpate we made to path filtering has now resolved this issue.  Pleae see https://help.github.com/en/github/automating-your-workflow-with-github-actions/workflow-syntax-for-github-actions#onpushpull_requestpaths for more details on path filtering.
