Auto Approve GitHub Action

Name: hmarr/auto-approve-action

Automatically approve GitHub pull requests. The GITHUB_TOKEN secret must be provided as the github-token input for the action to work.

Important: use v2.0.0 or later, as v1 was designed for the initial GitHub Actions beta, and no longer works.

Usage instructions

Create a workflow file (e.g. .github/workflows/auto-approve.yml) that contains a step that uses: hmarr/auto-approve-action@v2.0.0. Here's an example workflow file:

name: Auto approve
on: pull_request

    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    - uses: hmarr/auto-approve-action@v2.0.0
        github-token: "${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}"

Combine with an if clause to only auto-approve certain users. For example, to auto-approve Dependabot pull requests, use:

    - uses: hmarr/auto-approve-action@v2.0.0
      if: == 'dependabot[bot]' || == 'dependabot-preview[bot]'
        github-token: "${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}"


GitHub lets you prevent merges of unapproved pull requests. However, it's occasionally useful to selectively circumvent this restriction - for instance, some people want Dependabot's automated pull requests to not require approval.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
