We investigate connections between actions on separable C*-algebras with Rokhlin-type properties and absorption of the Jiang–Su algebra Z. We show that if A admits an approximately inner group action with finite Rokhlin dimension with commuting towers then A is Z-stable. We obtain analogous results for tracial version of the Rokhlin property and approximate innerness. Going beyond approximate innerness, for actions of a single automorphism which have the Rokhlin property and are almost periodic in a suitable sense, the crossed product absorbs Z even when the original algebra does not.
