Github Actions url to run

Solved! Go to Solution.


I'm trying to create a workflow for deployment, and I'd like to create a deploy status and submit the url to the log of the action that deployed. Very handy if the deply failes I think. Using actions/bin/debug I can't seem to find any reference to the id of the run or url to the run.


Is there a way to extract this in some way?

We don't currently expose that information, however I've made a note of this feedback so we can take it into account as we continue to improve actions.

Thanks! It would perhaps be great to have it as one of the environment variables. GITHUB_RUN_ID or something along those lines.

I have similar use case. Would be nice to have this.

Any updates on this now with the launch of CI/CD support? 

Exposing the run ID would be really helpful for supporting parallelization for Cypress users.
