  owner:

  # Repo hosting the package.

  # Defaults to 1.
  num-old-versions-to-delete:

  # The token used to authenticate with GitHub Packages.

Scenarios

Delete a specific version of a package hosted in the same repo as the workflow

To delete a specific version of a package that is hosted in the same repo as the one executing the workflow the package-version-ids input is required.

Package version ids can be retrieved via the GitHub GraphQL API

Example

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v1
  with:
    package-version-ids: 'MDE0OlBhY2thZ2VWZXJzaW9uOTcyMDY3'

Delete a specific version of a package hosted in a different repo than the workflow

To delete a specific version of a package that is hosted in a different repo than the one executing the workflow the package-version-ids, and token inputs are required.

Package version ids can be retrieved via the GitHub GraphQL API.

The token only needs the delete packages scope. It is recommended to store the token as a secret. In this example the token was stored as a secret named GITHUB_PAT.

Example

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v1
  with:
    package-version-ids: 'MDE0OlBhY2thZ2VWZXJzaW9uOTcyMDY3'
    token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_PAT }}

Delete multiple specific versions of a package hosted in the same repo as the workflow

To delete multiple specifc versions of a package that is hosted in the same repo that is executing the workflow the package-version-ids input is required.

The package-version-ids input should be a comma separated string of package version ids. Package version ids can be retrieved via the GitHub GraphQL API.

Example

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v1
  with:
    package-version-ids: 'MDE0OlBhY2thZ2VWZXJzaW9uOTcyMDY3, MDE0OlBhY2thZ2VWZXJzaW9uOTcyMzQ5, MDE0OlBhY2thZ2VWZXJzaW9uOTcyMzUw'

Delete multiple specific versions of a package hosted in a different repo than the workflow
