Workflow that uses an unpublished action

Is there any concern with using actions have have been published to GitHub Actions marketplace, but later on unpublished?

Will my workflow stop working?

For example, lets say I was using this action https://github.com/marketplace/actions/github-tag-bump

- name: Github Tag Bump
  uses: anothrNick/github-tag-action@1.26.0

To bump the version of my release.

If that action was removed would my workflow fail?

Hi @Mike-Dunton,

Glad to see you in Github Community Forum!

If you just unpublish the action, the release(1.26.0) still exists on your action repo, the workflow won’t be failed.

If you delete the action repo, or unpublish and removed the release(and tag 1.26.0), the workflow will fail due to not found the action.

Thanks
