Using github actions more now, but here’s something I don’t like. Maybe there is a solution?

I’m combining a lot of my “systems management” oriented work into a single repo rather than many small repos for the sake of simplifying management and contribution. This approaches a small mono repo format.

The github action checks are a bit annoying here as if I link up terraform cloud workspaces + more then it shows this huge list of 15+ checks that are all “Path not changed, no run triggered”. Is there a way to simplify/hide/group checks so that this noise is reduced for a contributor?

I agree that the status checks can get annoying - we have one repo with over 500 status checks

This happens if using a lot of workspaces in TFC too

In the end, I think GitHub will have to release some UI improvements to accommodate for it

Also frustrating is is we want to use branch protections to require checks to pass, but not all checks trigger on all PRs

Has anyone looked at deploying multiple branches by triggering github actions across different repositories?
