Status check for manual Action workflow_dispatch

So I’m aware that a PR created from within a workflow using the GITHUB_TOKEN will not trigger another workflow. And that maybe using a personal token would work around that.

But I thought that triggering the workflow manually with workflow_dispatch on the PR branch would be enough to satisfy the Status checks of that workflow, which I have setup as a requirement to merge the PR on branch protection.

Is there a way to make manual workflow triggers also a valid status check?

@caiofaustino,

We seem have no any method to do that.

Generally, the jobs in the following workflow runs will be listed as the checks on a pull request:

  1. Workflow runs triggered by the events that are related to the pull request.

  2. Workflow runs triggered by push even on the head branch (source branch) of the pull request.
