Actions are often updated with bug fixes and new features to make automated processes more reliable, faster, and safer. When you enable Dependabot 版本更新 for GitHub Actions, Dependabot will help ensure that references to actions in a repository's workflow.yml file are kept up to date. For each action in the file, Dependabot checks the action's reference (typically a version number or commit identifier associated with the action) against the latest version. If a more recent version of the action is available, Dependabot will send you a pull request that updates the reference in the workflow file to the latest version. For more information about Dependabot 版本更新, see "About Dependabot 版本更新." For more information about configuring workflows for GitHub Actions, see "Learn GitHub Actions."
You can configure Dependabot 版本更新 to maintain your actions as well as the libraries and packages you depend on.
- If you have already enabled Dependabot 版本更新 for other ecosystems or package managers, simply open the existing dependabot.yml file. Otherwise, create a dependabot.yml configuration file in the
.githubdirectory of your repository. For more information, see "Configuring Dependabot version updates."
- Set the
"/"to check for workflow files in
- Set a

- 将 dependabot.yml 配置文件签入仓库的

You can also enable Dependabot 版本更新 on forks. For more information, see "Configuring Dependabot version updates."
The example dependabot.yml file below configures version updates for GitHub Actions. The
directory must be set to
"/" to check for workflow files in
schedule.interval is set to
"daily". After this file has been checked in or updated, Dependabot checks for new versions of your actions. Dependabot will raise pull requests for version updates for any outdated actions that it finds. After the initial version updates, Dependabot will continue to check for outdated versions of actions once a day.
# Set update schedule for GitHub Actions version: 2 updates: - package-ecosystem: "github-actions" directory: "/" schedule: # Check for updates to GitHub Actions every weekday interval: "daily"
When enabling Dependabot 版本更新 for actions, you must specify values for
schedule.interval. There are many more optional properties that you can set to further customize your version updates. For more information, see "Configuration options for the dependabot.yml file."
