Disabling and enabling a workflow

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

Nota: Actualmente los ejecutores hospedados en GitHub no se admiten en GitHub Enterprise Server. Puede ver más información sobre la compatibilidad futura planeada en GitHub public roadmap.

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: Para prevenir las ejecuciones de flujo de trabajo innecesarias, los flujos de trabajo programados pueden inhabilitarse automáticamente. Cuando se bifurca un repositorio público, los flujos de trabajo programados se inhabilitan predeterminadamente. En un repositorio público, los flujos de trabajo programados se inhabilitan automáticamente cuando no ha habido actividad en el repositorio por 60 días.

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

To disable a workflow, use the workflow disable subcommand. Replace workflow with either the name, ID, or file name of the workflow you want to disable. For example, "Link Checker", 1234567, or "link-check-test.yml". If you don't specify a workflow, GitHub CLI returns an interactive menu for you to choose a workflow.
