Enabling GitHub Packages with AWS

Set up GitHub Packages with AWS as your external storage.

Warnings:

  • It is critical that you configure any restrictive access policies you need for your storage bucket, because GitHub does not apply specific object permissions or additional access control lists (ACLs) to your storage bucket configuration. For example, if you make your bucket public, data in the bucket will be accessible to the public internet. For more information, see "Setting bucket and object access permissions" in the AWS Documentation.
  • We recommend using a dedicated bucket for GitHub Packages, separate from the bucket you use for GitHub Actions storage.
  • Make sure to configure the bucket you'll want to use in the future. We do not recommend changing your storage after you start using GitHub Packages.

Prerequisites

Before you can enable and configure GitHub Packages on 您的 GitHub Enterprise Server 实例, you need to prepare your AWS storage bucket. To prepare your AWS storage bucket, we recommend consulting the official AWS docs at AWS Documentation.

Ensure your AWS access key ID and secret have the following permissions:

  • s3:PutObject
  • s3:GetObject
  • s3:ListBucketMultipartUploads
  • s3:ListMultipartUploadParts
  • s3:AbortMultipartUpload
  • s3:DeleteObject
  • s3:ListBucket

      For more information, see "AWS service endpoints" in the AWS documentation.

    • AWS S3 Bucket: The name of your S3 bucket dedicated to GitHub Packages.

    • AWS S3 Access Key and AWS S3 Secret Key: The AWS access key ID and secret key to access your bucket.
