Github Action not building and no logs are visible

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi everyone.


I'm trying to use Github Actions, but I'm getting a failing build without much output.


This is all the output:

### FAILED build_it 05:42:03Z (530ms)

Here is the repository:

And here is the workflow file:


workflow "Publish Blog" {
  on = "push"
  resolves = ["publish_it"]

action "build_it" {
  uses = "./.github/actions/build_it@master"
  secrets = ["GITHUB_TOKEN"]

action "publish_it" {
  uses = "./.github/actions/publish_it@master"
  needs = ["build_it"]
  secrets = ["GITHUB_TOKEN"]

And here are the actions:


At this point I have no idea what the problem might be. :/


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The problem was that it didn't actually find the action to execute. I had to extract the actions into their respective repositories. Now it works.
