Re-running a workflow

You can re-run an instance of a workflow. Re-running a workflow uses the same GITHUB_SHA (commit SHA) and GITHUB_REF (Git ref) of the original event that triggered the workflow run.

GitHub Actions is available with GitHub Free, GitHub Pro, GitHub Free for organizations, GitHub Team, GitHub Enterprise Cloud, GitHub Enterprise Server, and GitHub AE. GitHub Actions is not available for private repositories owned by accounts using legacy per-repository plans.

Note: GitHub-hosted runners are not currently supported on GitHub Enterprise Server. You can see more information about planned future support on the GitHub public roadmap.

Re-run a workflow using GitHub CLI

For information on setting up GitHub CLI, see "Managing GitHub Actions with GitHub CLI."

To re-run a failed workflow run, use the run rerun subcommand. Replace run-id with the ID of the failed run that you want to re-run. If you don't specify a run-id, GitHub CLI returns an interactive menu for you to choose a recent failed run.

gh run rerun run-id

To view the progress of the workflow run, use the run watch subcommand and select the run from the interactive list.
