GitHub Action to customize artifact cleanup
Status and support
GitHub Action Artifacts are removed after 90 days by default. GitHub now supports changing this setting. This action allows you to further customize the cleanup. It - removes artifacts that are older than the specified age - has the option to keep release (tagged) artifacts - has the option to keep a number of recent artifacts - respects GitHub's rate limit
Example use cases: - keep all release artifacts for a year, remove non-release artifacts after 30 days - keep the most recent 10 artifacts
Add the following workflow to your repository and configure options.
.github/workflows/remove-old-artifacts.yml```yml name: Remove old artifacts
