Viewing queued jobs in your organization or enterprise

GitHub-hosted runners allow you to run jobs concurrently, and the maximum number of concurrent jobs will vary depending on your plan. If you reach the maximum number of concurrent jobs, any new jobs will start to enter a queue. To find out more about the number of concurrent jobs available to your plan, see "Usage limits, billing, and administration."

The following procedure demonstrates how to check the maximum number of concurrent jobs you can run.

  1. Navigate to your runner settings:

    • In an organization or repository: Navigate to the main page, then click Settings.
    • If using an enterprise account: Navigate to your enterprise account by clicking your profile photo in the top-right corner of GitHub.com, then clicking Your enterprises, then clicking the enterprise.
  2. Navigate to the GitHub Actions settings:

    • In an organization or repository: Click Actions in the left sidebar, then click Runners.
    • If using an enterprise account: In the left sidebar, click " Policies", then click Actions, then click the Runners tab.
  3. In the "Runners" table, click the entry for GitHub-hosted runners. This entry will only be present if you're using GitHub-hosted runners.

  4. Review the "All jobs usage" section, which lists the number of active jobs and the maximum number of jobs you can run. In this example, 9 jobs are currently running out of a maximum of 180. Screenshot of the maximum jobs for an account
