Server Secrets

It is possible to provide a token or credentials for a number of external services. These may be used to lift a rate limit or provide access to private resources from a self-hosted instance.

There are two ways of setting secrets:

  1. Via environment variables. This is a good way to set them in a PaaS environment.
GH_TOKEN=...
  1. Via checked-in config/local.yml:
private:
  gh_token: '...'

For more complex scenarios, configuration files can cascade. See the node-config documentation for details.

Azure DevOps

  • AZURE_DEVOPS_TOKEN (yml: azure_devops_token)

An Azure DevOps Token (PAT) is required for accessing private Azure DevOps projects.

GitHub

You can create a personal access token through the Github website. When you create the token, you can choose to give read access to your repositories. If you do that, your self-hosted Shields installation will have access to your private repositories.

When a gh_token is specified, it is used in place of the Shields token rotation logic.

  • GH_CLIENT_ID (yml: gh_client_id)
  • GH_CLIENT_SECRET (yml: gh_client_secret)

These settings are used by shields.io for GitHub OAuth app authorization but will not be necessary for most self-hosted installations. See production-hosting.md.
