CI/CD with GitHub Actions

Overview


The current setup is leveraging GitHub Actions and Kyma to create a CI/CD pipeline for building, releasing and deploying Docker image with XSK packaged with your application content.

Prerequisites

Create Service Account in Kyma for the CI/CD pipeline, as described bellow:

  1. Navigate to your Kyma cluster.
  2. Select your namespace (e.g. default).
  3. Go to ConfigurationService Accounts.
  4. Click the Create Service Account button.
  5. Enter the service account name (e.g. xsk).

Create Cluster Role in Kyma for the CI/CD pipeline, as described bellow:

  1. Navigate to your Kyma cluster.
  2. Go to ConfigurationCluster Roles.
  3. Click the Create Cluster Role button.
  4. Enter the cluster role name (e.g. xsk).
  5. Add the following API Groups:
    • (core)
    • apps
    • servicecatalog.k8s.io
    • networking.istio.io
    • servicecatalog.kyma-project.io
    • gateway.kyma-project.io
  6. Select * in the Resources dropdown, to match all resources.
  7. Select * in the Verbs dropdown, to match all verbs.
  8. Click the Create button.

Create Cluster Role Binding of the Cluster Role to the Service Account:

  1. Navigate to your Kyma cluster.
  2. Go to Cluster Role BindingsCluster Roles.
  3. Enter the cluster role binding name (e.g. xsk-default, note that the name is not namespace specific and should be unique for the whole cluster).
  4. Select the Cluster Role (e.g. xsk).
  5. Switch the Kind to ServiceAccount.
  6. Select the desired namespace (e.g. default).
  7. Select the service account (e.g. xsk).

Copy the Service Account token as later will be needed for the KYMA_TOKEN secret:

  1. Navigate to your Kyma cluster.
  2. Go to ConfigurationService Accounts.
  3. Select the Service Account (e.g. xsk).
  4. Select the secret for more details (e.g. xsk-token-wf6jk).
  5. Click the Decode button to decode the secret.
  6. Copy the token value (e.g. eyJhbGciOiJS...).

Setup


  1. Navigate to your GitHub repository.
  2. Create .github/workflows/<pipeline-name>.yaml file with the following content:

Info

The following GitHub Action builds XSK based Docker image for your application and push it to your Docker registry.

Note: Replace the <your-organization>/<your-repository> placeholder with a default organization and repository where the Docker image will be pushed (can be changed when triggering the GitHub Action).
