Disabling and enabling a workflow

You can disable and re-enable a workflow using the GitHub UI, the REST API, or CLI de GitHub.

GitHub Actions se encuentra disponible con GitHub Free, GitHub Pro, GitHub Free para organizaciones, GitHub Team, GitHub Enterprise Cloud, y GitHub One. GitHub Actions no se encuentra disponible para repositorios privados que pertenezcan a cuentas que utilicen planes tradicionales por repositorio.

Note: GitHub-hosted runners are not currently supported on Servidor de GitHub Enterprise. You can see more information about planned future support on the Itinerario público de GitHub.

Disabling a workflow allows you to stop a workflow from being triggered without having to delete the file from the repo. You can easily re-enable the workflow again on GitHub.

Temporarily disabling a workflow can be useful in many scenarios. These are a few examples where disabling a workflow might be helpful:

  • A workflow error that produces too many or wrong requests, impacting external services negatively.
  • A workflow that is not critical and is consuming too many minutes on your account.
  • A workflow that sends requests to a service that is down.
  • Workflows on a forked repository that aren't needed (for example, scheduled workflows).

Warning: To prevent unnecessary workflow runs, scheduled workflows may be disabled automatically. When a public repository is forked, scheduled workflows are disabled by default. In a public repository, scheduled workflows are automatically disabled when no repository activity has occurred in 60 days.

You can also disable and enable a workflow using the REST API. For more information, see the "Actions REST API."
