Test Audit

This action sets up Maven environments for use in GitHub Actions by:

  • create maven settings.xml
  • set interactiveMode to false - useful in CI system
  • after job finish generated settings.xml will be removed to prevent cache or left sensitive data on build system
  • add server to servers with id=github, username=$GITHUB_ACTOR and password=$GITHUB_TOKEN

  • Don't hesitate to create issues for new features you dream of or if you suspect some bug

Project versioning

This project uses Semantic Versioning. We recommended to use the latest and specific release version.

Usage

You can try our action Setup Maven Action for completely maven environment setup.

See action.yml

default settings.xml

  with:
    servers: '[{"id": "serverId", "username": "username", "password": "password"}]'

Also you can use path argument if your settings.xml is stored in different location.

All server attributes may be specified:

  • id (required)
  • username
  • password
  • privateKey
  • passphrase
  • filePermissions
  • directoryPermissions
  • configuration

Please refer to the servers documentation for more information.

settings.xml with servers section and additional configuration

steps:
- uses: s4u/maven-settings-action@v2.6.0

        "configuration": {
          "item1": "value1",
          "item2": {

          }
        }
      }]

    <configuration>
      <item1>value1</item1>
      <item2>
        <item21>value21</item21>

steps:
- uses: s4u/maven-settings-action@v2.6.0
  with:
    githubServer: false

settings.xml with special server item configuration for oracle repository Oracle Maven Repository

steps:
- uses: s4u/maven-settings-action@v2.6.0
  with:
    oracleServers: '[{"id": "serverId", "username": "username", "password": "password"}]'

GitHub actions secrets

It is also possible pass in Github Secrets e.g.

steps:
- uses: s4u/maven-settings-action@v2.6.0
  with:
    servers: |
      [{
          "id": "sonatype-nexus-snapshots",
          "username": "${{ secrets.SONATYPE_USERNAME }}",
          "password": "${{ secrets.SONATYPE_PASSWORD }}"
      }]

Note: secrets are not passed in if the workflow is triggered from a forked repository. See here for further information. This can be avoided by using if triggers on the job e.g. if: github.event_name == 'push'.

Notes

maven-settings-action should be put at the latest position before maven run in order to avoid override setting.xml by another action

  steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v2

      - uses: actions/cache@v2
        with:
          path: ~/.m2/repository
          key: maven-${{ hashFiles('**/pom.xml') }}
          restore-keys: maven-

      - uses: actions/setup-java@v1
        with:
          java-version: 8

      - uses: s4u/maven-settings-action@v2.6.0

      - run: mvn verify
