GitHub Actions usage is free for public repositories and self-hosted runners. For private repositories, each GitHub account receives a certain amount of free minutes and storage, depending on the product used with the account. For more information, see "About billing for GitHub Actions."
There are some limits on GitHub Actions usage when using GitHub-hosted runners. These limits are subject to change.
Note: For self-hosted runners, different usage limits apply. For more information, see "About self-hosted runners."
Job execution time - Each job in a workflow can run for up to 6 hours of execution time. If a job reaches this limit, the job is terminated and fails to complete.
Workflow run time - Each workflow run is limited to 72 hours. If a workflow run reaches this limit, the workflow run is cancelled.
API requests - You can execute up to 1000 API requests in an hour across all actions within a repository. If exceeded, additional API calls will fail, which might cause jobs to fail.
Concurrent jobs - The number of concurrent jobs you can run in your account depends on your GitHub plan, as indicated in the following table. If exceeded, any additional jobs are queued.
GitHub plan Total concurrent jobs Maximum concurrent macOS jobs Free 20 5 Pro 40 5 Team 60 5 Enterprise 180 50
Job matrix - - Job matrix - A job matrix can generate a maximum of 256 jobs per workflow run. This limit also applies to self-hosted runners.
In addition to the usage limits, you must ensure that you use GitHub Actions within the GitHub Terms of Service. For more information on GitHub Actions-specific terms, see the GitHub Additional Product Terms.
By default, GitHub Actions is enabled on all repositories and organizations. You can choose to disable GitHub Actions or limit them to private actions only, which means that people can only use actions that exist in your repository.
For more information, see "Disabling or limiting GitHub Actions for a repository" or "Disabling or limiting GitHub Actions for your organization."
