CircleCI Ideas

Don't show "Rerun from failed" in the Rerun menu if all workflow steps succeeded

Currently, even successful workflows show "Rerun from failed" in the rerun dropdown menu. It seems like this is effectively a no-op, though it does create a new instance of a workflow run that is immediately green. If click this on accident, I end up cluttering up my build history with spurious green builds. I'd prefer to only see "Rerun from beginning" so that I don't run no-op builds.


My use case for re-running from the beginning is for branches which contain changes that I believe will fix flaky tests. I like to give them a good number of runs before merging them into master to gain confidence that I've actually addressed the flakiness.
