You can now manage Actions cache from your terminal by installing the new GitHub CLI extension for Actions cache:

    gh extension install actions/gh-actions-cache 

This extension is built on top of GitHub APIs for cache management and enables you to get:

  • More transparency by listing all the active caches in a repository and sorting by metadata like cache size, creation time or last accessed time.
  • Better control over cache usage by deleting a corrupt or a stale cache entry

You can now get more transparency and control over dependency caching in your actions workflows.

Actions users who use actions/cache to make jobs faster on GitHub Actions can now use our cache list and delete APIs to:

  • list all the Actions caches within a repository and sort by specific metadata like cache size, creation time or last accessed time.
  • delete a corrupt or a stale cache entry by providing the cache key or ID.

Dependency caching is one of the most effective ways to make jobs faster on GitHub Actions. You can now monitor the storage usage of your existing caches and get greater control over cache availability for your action workflows.

Actions users who use actions/cache to speed up their workflow execution times can now use our cache usage APIs to:

  • query the cache usage within each repository and monitor if the total size of all caches is reaching the upper limit of 10 GB,
  • monitor aggregate cache usage at organization level or even at enterprise level, if your GitHub organization is owned by an enterprise account.

You can now enjoy a higher per-repository cache size. The cache storage for each repository has doubled to 10GB. This enables Actions users on github.com to run workflows faster by caching even bigger dependencies and other commonly reused files from previous jobs. There is no limit on the number of caches you can store, but the total size of all caches in a repository is now be limited to 10 GB.
