Help: Trigger GitHub Action Manually From a Task

Hello! This is my first time here,

I need advice on triggering a GitHub Action from a task.

Here are the ideas I have tried so far:

  • I attempted to use the GitHub REST API to trigger the workflow. Locally, however, if I were to execute it on demand from Jira, I would need a secure place to store the REST credentials.

  • I explored the GitHub for Jira app, but as far as I know, it only get updates from GitHub to Jira and doesn’t have an option to trigger an action from within the app.

I would greatly appreciate guidance on best practices for achieving this functionality or any insights on where to focus my efforts.

Thank you for your assistance.

I found some clues to my own question,
