customize `github-actions[bot]` for deployments / issues / etc.

Solved! Go to Solution.

I'd like to create a deployment status from my action.

I got this working!:

I'd like to have a custom name show up instead of `github-actions[bot]`

Is this possible?

That is not possible as that shows the identity of the user who created the status.  And the identity for the GITHUB_TOKEN is the actions bot.

How do I get another token into the action safely?

@ndelangen I think this reflects the token used for creating the deployment event that triggered the Github Action. 

 

So following the figure from https://developer.github.com/v3/repos/deployments/ , it is the token used in the "Tooling" column.
