Run workflow manually with variables

I would love to be able to run my workflow manually from github with the ability to set env vars as I do so. This would be great for deploying as I could do it manually from github and add in variables like the version number. Is this feature currently avaialbe or is there any plan to add it?

Hi @malimccalla ,

It’s recommended to track this feature on existed ticket: https://github.community/t5/GitHub-Actions/GitHub-Actions-Manual-Trigger-Approvals/td-p/31504

You can raise a ticket here to confirm if there’s any progress about the feature, it will raise the feature priority, and github product manager will help to answer.

Meanwhile, as a workaround, you can send Repository Dispatch Event to your repository to trigger the workflow manually, you can add the version number in the event payload, and get it from ${{ github.event.client_payload.vernumber }} in the workflow.

My workflow:

Thanks.
