Note: GitHub-hosted runners are not currently supported on GitHub Enterprise Server. You can see more information about planned future support on the GitHub public roadmap.
Deleting an artifact
Warning: Once you delete an artifact, it cannot be restored.
Write access to the repository is required to perform these steps.
By default, GitHub Enterprise Server stores build logs and artifacts for 90 days, and this retention period can be customized. For more information, see "Usage limits, billing, and administration."
On your GitHub Enterprise Server instance, navigate to the main page of the repository.
Under your repository name, click Actions.
In the left sidebar, click the workflow you want to see.
From the list of workflow runs, click the name of the run to see the workflow run summary.
Under Artifacts, click next to the artifact you want to remove.
Setting the retention period for an artifact
Retention periods for artifacts and logs can be configured at the repository, organization, and enterprise level. For more information, see "Usage limits, billing, and administration."
You can also define a custom retention period for individual artifacts using the
actions/upload-artifact action in a workflow. For more information, see "Storing workflow data as artifacts."
Finding the expiration date of an artifact
You can use the API to confirm the date that an artifact is scheduled to be deleted. For more information, see the
expires_at value returned by "List artifacts for a repository."
