Artifacts and Caching Dependencies

Abstract

Artifacts in GitHub Actions pass data to a subsequent job or store data or compiled binaries once the workflow is completed. Persisted data in one job can be passed to another subsequent job, which may be running on a different operating system. This is an advantage of using artifacts. The retention period of artifacts in GitHub Actions workflows in 90 days by default; however, you have the option to change these settings, which is discussed later in this chapter.
