Although in the new beta, new repos have the old actions

Solved! Go to Solution.

I've successfully setup the new actions for one repo, but now that i want to do it for another repo, i don't see a way to "upgrade" it or "enable" the new actions. I honestly can't remember how i got the first repo enabled, but i would like to be able to use it with multiple repos

When I create a new repo, the actions is already upgraded to the new system. Have you tried creating the .github/workflows/<something>.yml file to see if it works?

no luck...it's a public repo, but making it private doesn't seem to make a difference...

I was able to upgrade another repo that had an old workflow file, so it seems to still be available at least...

Hi Dennis,

 

I could upgrade your entire account. Sound good?

Re: Although in the new beta, new repos have the old actions

@mscoutermarsh I'm having the exact same issue. I have been enrolled in both the old and new betas and have a new repo that seems to insist on only using the old workflow syntax. Adding a new style workflow file https://github.com/softprops/rust-bin/blob/master/.github/workflows/main.yml in place doesn't seem to be detected by the actions tab.

For some extra context in other repos there's usually a prompt (that I don't need) to opt into the new syntax. This repo didn't have it which makes this repo unique. If possible can I only be enrolled in the new syntax beta to avoid new repos using the old syntax.
