Is there a way to test the presence of a label in a GitHub Action?
I have a GitHub Action setup like this:
name: My Action
if: github.event.pull_request.merged && XXX
From the docs,
contains( github.event.pull_request.labels, 'my_label')doesn’t seem to work since
github.event.pull_request.labels is a dictionary. Is there any way to accomplish what I’m trying to do?
Yes, you can use the
contains function along with the
map function to check for the presence of a label in a GitHub Action. Here’s what your
if statement would look like:
if: github.event.pull_request.merged && contains(map(github.event.pull_request.labels, 'name'), 'my_label')
This maps the
name attribute of each label in
github.event.pull_request.labels to a new array, and then checks if that new array contains the label name
