We’re wondering if we can replace Jenkins by GitHub actions.
One thing we wanted to have is the ability to comment on the PR to trigger actions that might or might not had run before (and might not have failed previous executions).
We have an action that takes a while to complete, we don’t want to make it mandatory to be ran on every PR / every commit, but the user should be able to run it on demand by adding a specific comment to that PR.
Some possible use cases for this are
- spin up an mock environment and run mock tests
- trigger an Kubernetes deployment with the PRs code for QA/PO/UX validation
Is this Possible?
If not is there Any alternative solution that might help achieve similar features?
Is it on the roadmap?
Is the roadmap public?
