Downloading workflow artifacts

You can download archived artifacts before they automatically expire.

GitHub Actions is available with GitHub Free, GitHub Pro, GitHub Free for organizations, GitHub Team, GitHub Enterprise Cloud, GitHub Enterprise Server, and GitHub One. GitHub Actions is not available for private repositories owned by accounts using legacy per-repository plans. For more information, see "GitHub's products."

By default, GitHub stores build logs and artifacts for 90 days, and you can customize this retention period, depending on the type of repository. For more information, see "Configuring the retention period for GitHub Actions artifacts and logs in your repository."

Read access to the repository is required to perform these steps.

  1. On GitHub, navigate to the main page of the repository.
  2. Under your repository name, click Actions.
