Stuck on "starting your workflow run"

Solved! Go to Solution.

Is there something wrong with https://github.com/atlsynth/site-src/blob/master/.github/workflows/main.yml ? I have not had any runs proceed past "starting your workflow run..." The first one, started over two hours prior to this posting, is still showing that message. And I don't see any way to debug or stop these runs.

Hi there! It looks like you have a small typo in ubuntu-latest 🙂

Had the exact same typo as you did 🤦‍♂️.

Thank you and @imjohnbo for help. Github Actions should really notify you about those sorts of errors, instead of hanging forever with gray indicator!

I agree. I definitely see this as a bug and hope someone on the team recognizes it as such.

@jsumners @Artalus Definitely. We have a couple improvements coming to help with this. Shouldn't be this confusing when there is a typo!

Am still having this issue, using one of the info dump snippets on herehttps://help.github.com/en/articles/contexts-and-expression-syntax-for-github-actions#github-context. Was working before...

    steps:
      - name: Dump GitHub context
        env:

        run: echo "$GITHUB_CONTEXT"
      - name: Dump job context
        env:
          JOB_CONTEXT: ${{ toJson(job) }}

Re: Stuck on "starting your workflow run"

Similar situation for me. Jobs that used to work are currently stuck in the "Starting your workflow run..." state.
