Job information cannot be obtained if the job is renamed.

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug About two weeks ago the job field of our Github Action reports in Slack changed to report “Job is not found. Check the matrix.” The Action configuration has not changed in that time. To our knowledge nothing related to the Github Action or our git workflow or team activity has changed.

Expected behavior The expected behavior is the Slack message produced by the action to include the job name from the Githhub action configuration.

Screenshots Here is a sample report in Slack before the behavior changed. Screen Shot 2020-09-03 at 12 04 40 PM

Additional context Here is the config from our Github Action configuration:

- uses: 8398a7/action-slack@v3
    icon_emoji: ':octocat:'
    status: ${{ job.status }}
    fields: repo,author,eventName,workflow,job
    GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
  if: always() # Pick up events even if the job fails or is canceled.

Have you tried adding the MATRIX_CONTEXT?

The job_name did the trick for me. It was kind of tricky to find, I didn’t realize it was required if you use custom job names.
