Is it possible to manually force an action workflow to be re-run?

Solved! Go to Solution.

I pushed changes to my codebase, triggering a workflow to start.  It fails.  I'd like to have it try again without pushing new code.

 

I am not expecting any difference in behavior (I'd expect it to fail again), but I want to know if manual runs are possible.

No, re-running a GitHub Action is not currently supported. I'll pass along the request, but can't give an ETA on when they might implement such a feature.

 

I hope that helps!

Lack of ability to rerun the workflow manually is a real showstopper for us. We would also like to have the ability to configure environment variables and branch while starting the workflow.

Manually rerunning an action is really needed. In addition I also would like to manually run a specific workflow; i.e. I would like to test a scheduled workflow before its scheduled run.

+1, manually restarting a workflow is currently the feature I miss the most.

 

I my case it would be even better if I could start a workflow on push to *other* repositories (for instance rebuild a top-level project when dependencies have changed).

+1
IMO, this is really a must feature for any CI service.

Just fleshing out my workflow and got a lot of

+1 for this. Sometimes there are errors (e.g. due to temporary upstream outages) when things run on a schedule, and being able to just click a button to re-run would be ideal.

 

Thanks for listening!

Hi all, I'm not entirely sure if this is appropriate or not to self promote here, but my buddy and I built an extremely basic MVP for handling this exact situation, because we wanted this feature as well:

https://www.actionspanel.app

We built it as fast as we could so it's still very quirky, but we'd love feedback. There's a contact email on that landing page.

Its very hard to survive without this. Please, remove the condition to show the "rerun checks" only when the workflow failed.
