Options

Set a Path to Action Setting File

Default is .github/label-commenter-config.yml

- name: Label Commenter
  uses: peaceiris/actions-label-commenter@v1
  with:
    config_file: ./path_to/your_config.yml

Set a Personal Access Token

Default is ${{ github.token }}

- name: Label Commenter
  uses: peaceiris/actions-label-commenter@v1
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GH_PAT }}

Enable Debug Mode

- name: Label Commenter
  uses: peaceiris/actions-label-commenter@v1
  env:
    RUNNER_DEBUG: 1

Work with Issue Template

Here is a proposal issue template: .github/ISSUE_TEMPLATE/3_proposal.yml

name: Proposal
description: Suggest an idea for this project
title: ''
labels: proposal
assignees: peaceiris
body:
  ...

Scenario:

  1. When a user opens an issue with the proposal template, the proposal label will be added automatically.
  2. This action can detect that labeled event and create a template comment of proposal.

Work with Other Auto Label Actions

Authenticating with the GITHUB_TOKEN - GitHub Docs

When you use the repository's GITHUB_TOKEN to perform tasks on behalf of the GitHub Actions app, events triggered by the GITHUB_TOKEN will not create a new workflow run. This prevents you from accidentally creating recursive workflow runs. For example, if a workflow run pushes code using the repository's GITHUB_TOKEN, a new workflow will not run even when the repository contains a workflow configured to run when push events occur.

You need to provide a personal access token (with public_repo for a public repository, repo for a private repository) to an auto label GitHub Actions or GitHub Bot like actions/labeler.

# .github/workflows/labeler.yml
name: "Pull Request Labeler"

on:
  - pull_request_target

permissions:
  contents: read
  pull-requests: write

jobs:
  triage:
    runs-on: ubuntu-20.04
    steps:
      - uses: actions/labeler@v3
        with:
          repo-token: "${{ secrets.GH_PAT }}"

Scenario:

  1. Someone updates the README.md and opens a pull-request.
  2. actions/labeler adds the documentation label automatically.
  3. peaceiris/actions-label-commenter creates the template comment automatically.
