GitHub Actions: Reusable workflows can be referenced locally

You can now reference local reusable workflows more easily. With this release, reusable workflows that are in the same repository as the calling repository can be referenced with just the path and filename: {path}/{filename}.

For example:

    uses: ./.github/workflows/workflow-2.yml

When referenced this way, the called workflow will be from the same commit as the caller workflow.

If your GitHub organization is owned by an enterprise account, you can now innersource automation by sharing Actions only within your enterprise without publishing them publicly.
You can store the Action in an internal repository, and then configure the repository settings to allow access to workflows in other repositories:

  • In the same organization or
  • In any other organization in the enterprise

These Actions in internal repositories can only be used by workflows defined in other private and internal repositories but cannot be used in workflows defined within any public repositories.
