GitHub Actions puts powerful CI/CD and automation directly into the developer workflow, and it became generally available just six months ago. Since then, we’ve continued to improve with artifact and dependency caching for faster workflows, self-hosted runners for greater flexibility, and the Actions API for extensibility. The community response has been amazing and we’re excited to share some new and upcoming enhancements.
At its core, GitHub Actions allows you to automate any development workflow. Just like how our projects build on each other’s work through open source packages, GitHub Actions does the same thing for workflow automation. You can quickly reuse existing workflows or build on the thousands of free actions in the GitHub Marketplace. There’s an action for almost everything, including: Kubernetes deployments, linting, SMS alerts, or automatically assigning and labeling an issue—and it keeps growing every day.
We’re thrilled to see how GitHub Actions is helping developers, teams, enterprises, and the open source community automate their workflows—so developers can spend more time writing code.
The community momentum behind GitHub Actions has been tremendous, and we’ve seen quick adoption with teams and enterprise customers. We want to highlight new, enterprise-focused features for GitHub Actions.
Now, organizations can share and manage self-hosted runners across their organization using new policies and labels. This enables large teams and enterprises to centralize the management of their core infrastructure.
Small changes can have a big impact on the daily experience for developers. Here are a few improvements that we recently shipped:
includematrix gives more flexibility to customer-specific legs of a parallel set of jobs, commonly used for platform-specific customization.
In the coming months, we’ll ship additional features that help our customers standardize on their workflows across organizations so they can better manage compliance and security for CI/CD and automated workflows. Some of these improvements include sharing and managing secrets across multiple repositories, the ability for organizations to create their own starter workflows for GitHub Actions, and the addition of advanced continuous deployment capabilities.
We’re also working closely with customers to deliver GitHub Actions and Packages to GitHub Enterprise Server. Interested in working with us? We’d love to chat!
