Delete Package Versions

This action deletes versions of a package from GitHub Packages.

What It Can Do

  • Create a retention policy (delete all except n most recent pre-release versions)

  • Delete all package versions except n most recent versions

  • Delete oldest version(s)

  • Ignore version(s) from deletion through regex

  • Delete version(s) of a package that is hosted in the same repo that is executing the workflow

  • Delete version(s) of a package that is hosted in a different repo than the one executing the workflow

  • Delete a single version

  • Delete multiple versions

  • Delete specific version(s)

Usage

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v2
  with:
  # Can be a single package version id, or a comma separated list of package version ids.
  # Defaults to an empty string.
  package-version-ids:

  # Owner of the repo hosting the package.
  # Defaults to the owner of the repo executing the workflow.
  # Required if deleting a version from a package hosted in a different repo than the one executing the workflow.
  owner:

  # Repo hosting the package.
  # Defaults to the repo executing the workflow.
  # Required if deleting a version from a package hosted in a different repo than the one executing the workflow.
  repo:

  # Name of the package.
  # Defaults to an empty string.
  # Required if `package-version-ids` input is not given.
  package-name:

  # The number of old versions to delete starting from the oldest version.
  # Defaults to 1.
  # Cannot be more than 100.
  num-old-versions-to-delete:

  # The number of latest versions to not delete.
  # Defaults to 0.
  # When this is set greater than 0 it will delete all deletable package versions except the specified no.
  # `num-old-versions-to-delete` will not be taken into account with this option.
  # Cannot be more than 100.
  min-versions-to-keep:

  # The package versions to exclude from deletion.
  # Takes regex for the version name as input.
  # By default nothing is ignored.
  ignore-versions:

  # If true it will delete only the pre-release versions.
  # The number of pre-release versions to keep can be set by using `min-versions-to-keep` value with this.
  # When `min-versions-to-keep` is 0, all pre-release versions get deleted.
  # Defaults to false.
  delete-only-pre-release-versions:

  # The token used to authenticate with GitHub Packages.
  # Defaults to github.token.
  # Required if deleting a version from a package hosted in a different repo than the one executing the workflow.
  #   If `package-version-ids` is given the token only needs the delete packages scope.
  #   If `package-version-ids` is not given the token needs the delete packages scope and the read packages scope

Scenarios

Delete all pre-release versions except y latest pre-release package versions

To delete all pre release versions except y latest pre-release package versions in the same repo as the workflow the package-name, min-versions-to-keep and delete-only-pre-release-versions inputs are required.

Example

Delete all pre-release package versions except latest 10 in the same repo as the workflow

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v2
  with: 
    package-name: 'test-package'
    min-versions-to-keep: 10
    delete-only-pre-release-versions: "true"

To delete all pre release versions except y latest pre-release package versions in a different repo than the workflow the owner, repo, package-name, token, min-versions-to-keep and delete-only-pre-release-versions inputs are required.

The token needs the delete packages and read 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

Delete all pre-release package versions except latest 10 in a different repo than the workflow

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v2
  with: 
    owner: 'github'
    repo: 'packages'
    package-name: 'test-package'
    token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_PAT }}
    min-versions-to-keep: 10
    delete-only-pre-release-versions: "true"

Delete all except y latest versions while ignoring particular package versions

To delete all except y latest versions while ignoring particular package versions in the same repo as the workflow the package-name, min-versions-to-keep and ignore-versions inputs are required.

Example

Delete all except latest 3 package versions excluding major versions as per semver in the same repo as the workflow

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v2
  with: 
    package-name: 'test-packae'
    min-versions-to-keep: 3
    ignore-versions: '^(0|[1-9]\\d*)\\.0\\.0$'

To delete all except y latest versions while ignoring particular package versions in a different repo than the workflow the owner, repo, package-name, token, min-versions-to-keep and ignore-versions inputs are required.

The token needs the delete packages and read 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

Delete all except latest 3 package versions excluding major versions as per semver in a different repo than the workflow

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v2
  with: 
    owner: 'github'
    repo: 'packages'
    package-name: 'test-packae'
    token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_PAT }}
    min-versions-to-keep: 3
    ignore-versions: '^(0|[1-9]\\d*)\\.0\\.0$'

Delete oldest x number of versions while ignoring particular package versions

To delete oldest x number of versions while ignoring all the major package versions in the same repo as the workflow the package-name, num-oldest-versions-to-delete and ignore-versions inputs are required.

There is a possibility if the oldest x number of versions contain ignored package versions, actual package versions to get deleted will be less than x.

Example

Delete 3 oldest versions excluding major versions as per semver is the same repo as the workflow

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v2
  with: 
    package-name: 'test-packae'
    num-old-versions-to-delete: 3
    ignore-versions: '^(0|[1-9]\\d*)\\.0\\.0$'

To delete oldest x number of versions while ignoring all the major package versions in a different repo than the workflow the owner, repo, package-name, token, num-oldest-versions-to-delete and ignore-versions inputs are required.

There is a possibility if the oldest x number of versions contain ignored package versions, actual package versions to get deleted will be less than x.

The token needs the delete packages and read 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

Delete 3 oldest versions excluding major versions as per semver is a differernt repo than the workflow

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v2
  with: 
    owner: 'github'
    repo: 'packages'
    package-name: 'test-packae'
    token: ${{ secrets.PAT }}
    num-old-versions-to-delete: 3
    ignore-versions: '^(0|[1-9]\\d*)\\.0\\.0$'

Delete all except y latest versions of a package

To delete all except y latest versions of a package hosted in the same repo as the workflow the package-name and min-versions-to-keep inputs are required.

Example

Delete all except latest 2 versions of a package hosted in the same repo as the workflow

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v2
  with:
    package-name: 'test-package'
    min-versions-to-keep: 2

To delete all except y latest versions of a package hosted in a repo other than the workflow the owner, repo, package-name, token and min-versions-to-keep inputs are required.

The token needs the delete packages and read 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

Delete all except latest 2 versions of a package hosted in a repo other than the workflow

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v2
  with:
    owner: 'github'
    repo: 'packages'
    package-name: 'test-package'
    token: ${{ secrets.PAT }}
    min-versions-to-keep: 2

To delete the oldest x number of versions of a package hosted in the same repo as the workflow the package-name, and num-old-versions-to-delete inputs are required.

Example

Delete the oldest 3 version of a package hosted in the same repo as the workflow

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v2
  with:
    package-name: 'test-package'
    num-old-versions-to-delete: 3

To delete the oldest x number of versions of a package hosted in a different repo than the workflow the owner, repo, package-name, token and num-old-versions-to-delete inputs are required.

The token needs the delete packages and read 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

Delete the oldest 3 version of a package hosted in a different repo than the one executing the workflow

- uses: actions/delete-package-versions@v2
