Lifecycle

Users can additional repositories in a project in just a few clicks using the Console or using the RCTL CLI using a declarative, version controlled spec for high levels of automation.


Create Repository

  • Login to the Console and navigate to your Project
  • Click on Integrations and Select Repositories
  • Click on New Repository
  • Provide a "friendly name" and select "type" (Git or Helm)

Create New Repository


Configure Repository

Once a repository is created, it needs to be configured before it can be used.

  • Provide the endpoint URL
  • Specify whether the endpoint is accessible over the Internet

Internet Reachable

For repositories that are directly accessible on the Internet.

Configure Repository

  • Optionally, if using a private CA, copy/paste the CA certificate of the repository endpoint.
  • If the repository is private, access credentials need to be provided so that the repository can be securely accessed by the Controller.

Username/Password

If the organization requires the use of username and password,

  • Select "UserPassCredential" for Type
  • Enter a valid username/password and Save

SSH Private Key

If the organization requires the use of a SSH key for access,

  • Select "SSHCredential" for Type
  • Copy/Paste the SSH Private Key in PEM format
  • Save

SSH Credential

Private Network

For private repositories that are operating in private networks, behind a firewall, the use of an agent is required.

Agent Selection

Tip

Agents will be listed in the drop down list only if they have already been created.


Validate Access

Once a repository has been configured, it is good hygiene to validate access to verify that there is no accidental misconfiguration.

  • Navigate to Integrations -> Repositories
  • Click on Validate for your repository

The Controller will use the configured information to test access to the repository and report back. An illustrative example for successful validation is shown below.

Validate Access
