k8s-webhook-handler

Create Kubernetes resources in response to (GitHub) webhooks!

How does it work?

When the k8s-webhook-handler receives a webhook, it:

  • Validates the payload's signature by using the WEBHOOK_SECRET as HMAC hexdigest secret
  • Downloads a manifest (.ci/workflow.yaml by default) from the repository.

For push events, it downloads the manifest from the given revision. Otherwise it's checked out from the repository's default branch.

After that, it applies the manifest and adds the following annotations:

  • k8s-webhook-handler.io/ref: Git reference (e.g. refs/heads/master)
  • k8s-webhook-handler.io/revision: The SHA of the most recent commit on ref after the push.
  • k8s-webhook-handler.io/before: The SHA of the most recent commit on ref before the push.
  • k8s-webhook-handler.io/repo_name: Repo name including user (e.g. airbnb/k8s-webhook-handler)
  • k8s-webhook-handler.io/repo_url: git URL (e.g. git://github.com/airbnb/k8s-webhook-handler.git)
  • k8s-webhook-handler.io/repo_ssh: ssh URL (e.g. git@github.com:airbnb/k8s-webhook-handler.git)
  • k8s-webhook-handler.io/event_type: Event type (e.g. push or delete)
  • k8s-webhook-handler.io/event_action: Event type specific action (e.g. created or deleted)

(For details, see the GitHub Events Docs.

Binaries

  • cmd/webhook is the actual webhook handling server

Usage

Beside the manifests and templates in deploy/, a secret 'webhook-handler' with the following fields is expected:

  • GITHUB_TOKEN Personal Access Token for API access
  • WEBHOOK_SECRET Secret for validating the webhook

The value should match the "Secret" field in the GitHub webhook settings and can be created like this:

kubectl create secret generic k8s-ci --from-literal=GITHUB_SECRET=github-secret ...

Security

The WEBHOOK_SECRET is required for secure operation. Running without means not validating the webhooks which effectively grants everyone permission to run arbitrary manifests on your cluster. If you really need to run without validation e.g for testing purposes, you can run the handler with the -insecure flag.
