I’m wondering why the https://developer.github.com/v3/repos/#create-a-repository-dispatch-event response is
204: no-content, could it not return a pointer to the job that is created? It doesn’t seem as HATEOS as the rest of teh endpoints
I’m trying to build a bot that triggers a long running test suite via action, currently I have to poll <repo>/actions/workflows/manual-integration-tests.yml/runs?status=in_progress until a job exists, get the run_url and then poll that until the status changes.
Is there a better method of finding the job I triggered? Or am I fundamentally missing the point of repository_dispatch events?
