Workflow runs

The Workflow runs API allows you to view, re-run, cancel, and view logs for workflow runs.

About the Workflow runs API

The Workflow runs API allows you to view, re-run, cancel, and view logs for workflow runs. A workflow run is an instance of your workflow that runs when the pre-configured event occurs. For more information, see "Managing a workflow run."

This API is available for authenticated users, OAuth Apps, and GitHub Apps. Access tokens require repo scope for private repositories and public_repo scope for public repositories. GitHub Apps must have the actions permission to use this API.

Anyone with read access to the repository can use this endpoint. If the repository is private you must use an access token with the repo scope. GitHub Apps must have the actions:read permission to use this endpoint.
