GitHub Actions

How to use the CloudTruth configure-action
This walkthrough shows you how to use CloudTruth parameters safely and securely with GitHub Actions using our configure-action.


Update GitHub Repository Secrets

Adding your CloudTruth API access token as a GitHub secret allows GitHub Actions to reference the API token when running a workflow. This allows you to bring configuration and secrets from your CloudTruth projects into GitHub workflows.
In your GitHub repository settings, add a new repository secret with the name CLOUDTRUTH_TOKEN that contains your API access token as the value:
Adding a Repository Secret
The action can be used to inject the configuration and secrets from a project's environment into your GitHub workflow. Within the same job, steps following the action will have environment variables set to those in your project, based on the environment you choose:
name: 'demo'
pull_request: {}
runs-on: ubuntu-latest
- uses: cloudtruth/configure-[email protected]
apikey: "${{ secrets.CLOUDTRUTH_TOKEN }}"
project: MyFirstProject
environment: default
- name: dump the environment
run: |
printenv | sort
GitHub Action results will show the environment variables that were added to the job, and which parameters were redacted.
The output below comes from the configure-action repository and shows a run from parameters that were pre-configured for the configure-action demo script - your output will match the parameters you created.
Example workflow result
A complete example is found in the demo workflow of the configure-action repository.
