Rasa multiple action files

Hi folks,

If i want to create multiple action files, how can i include it in single actions.py?

Hello @BellaS,

You just need to create your custom action file normally. And then in the actions.py, you import those files accordingly, like this:

from somewhere import CustomAction 

While somewhere depends on the directory you put the CustomAction file in. Hope that helps :smile:.


Hi @fuih,

Can you please share the example code for the same

I did resolve this thank you for he reply

On Rasa 3 there is no need to import files to a single action.py file because all python actions on the folder are imported


If I renamed my ‘actions.py’ and created 3 more action files all in the folder actions: grafik

But if I run ‘rasa run actions’ i get the following error:

What am I doing wrong?

Hey @mxnno, You need to keep file name as @jona has kept.


and it will work… working for me with

Rasa Version : 2.6.2

Rasa SDK Version : 2.6.0
