Disabling and enabling a workflow

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

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: 不必要なワークフローの実行を避けるために、スケジュールされたワークフローは自動的に無効化できます。 パブリックリポジトリがフォークされると、スケジュールされたワークフローはデフォルトで無効化されます。 パブリックリポジトリでは、60日間にリポジトリにアクティビティがなかった場合、スケジュールされたワークフローは自動的に無効化されます。

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

GitHub CLI の詳細については、「GitHub CLI について」を参照してください。

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.
