How to schedule GitHub workflow actions?

You can use “on” in your GitHub workflow file to schedule GitHub workflow actions. The schedule event allows you to trigger a workflow at a scheduled time. You can schedule a workflow to run at specific UTC times using POSIX cron syntax. Scheduled workflows run on the latest commit on the default or base branch. The shortest interval you can run scheduled workflows is once every 5 minutes.

Step 1: Create a personal access token on GitHub.

Step 2: Create a GitHub repository using REST API.

Step 3: Create a workflow definition for GitHub actions.

Note: We have used “on” with “schedule” to make GitHub automatically trigger GitHub workflow actions at a particular time of the day.

Step 4: Upload the workflow file.

Step 5: Clean up.
