GitHub Actions 机密

通过 GitHub Actions 机密 API,可以创建、更新、删除和检索有关可在 GitHub Actions 工作流中使用的加密机密的信息。

关于机密 API

通过 GitHub Actions 机密 API,可以创建、更新、删除和检索有关可在 GitHub Actions 工作流中使用的加密机密的信息。 加密的密码允许在存储库、存储库环境或组织中存储敏感信息,如访问令牌。 有关详细信息,请参阅“创建和使用加密机密”。

此 API 适用于经过身份验证的用户、OAuth Apps 和 GitHub Apps。 对于专用存储库,访问令牌需要 repo 范围,对于 公共给 存储库,则需要 public_repo 范围。 GitHub Apps必须具有 secrets 权限才可使用此 API。 经过身份验证的用户必须对仓库具有协作者权限才可创建、更新或读取密码。

Create or update an organization secret

Works with GitHub Apps

Creates or updates an organization secret with an encrypted value. Encrypt your secret using LibSodium. You must authenticate using an access token with the admin:org scope to use this endpoint. GitHub Apps must have the secrets organization permission to use this endpoint.

Example encrypting a secret using Node.js

Encrypt your secret using the libsodium-wrappers library.

const sodium = require('libsodium-wrappers')
const secret = 'plain-text-secret' // replace with the secret you want to encrypt
const key = 'base64-encoded-public-key' // replace with the Base64 encoded public key

//Check if libsodium is ready and then proceed.
sodium.ready.then(() => {
  // Convert Secret & Base64 key to Uint8Array.
  let binkey = sodium.from_base64(key, sodium.base64_variants.ORIGINAL)
  let binsec = sodium.from_string(secret)

  //Encrypt the secret using LibSodium
  let encBytes = sodium.crypto_box_seal(binsec, binkey)

  // Convert encrypted Uint8Array to Base64
  let output = sodium.to_base64(encBytes, sodium.base64_variants.ORIGINAL)

  console.log(output)
});

Example encrypting a secret using Python

Encrypt your secret using pynacl with Python 3.

from base64 import b64encode
from nacl import encoding, public

def encrypt(public_key: str, secret_value: str) -> str:
  """Encrypt a Unicode string using the public key."""
  public_key = public.PublicKey(public_key.encode("utf-8"), encoding.Base64Encoder())
  sealed_box = public.SealedBox(public_key)
  encrypted = sealed_box.encrypt(secret_value.encode("utf-8"))
  return b64encode(encrypted).decode("utf-8")

Example encrypting a secret using C#

Encrypt your secret using the Sodium.Core package.

var secretValue = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("mySecret");
var publicKey = Convert.FromBase64String("2Sg8iYjAxxmI2LvUXpJjkYrMxURPc8r+dB7TJyvvcCU=");

var sealedPublicKeyBox = Sodium.SealedPublicKeyBox.Create(secretValue, publicKey);

Console.WriteLine(Convert.ToBase64String(sealedPublicKeyBox));

Example encrypting a secret using Ruby

Encrypt your secret using the rbnacl gem.

require "rbnacl"
require "base64"

key = Base64.decode64("+ZYvJDZMHUfBkJdyq5Zm9SKqeuBQ4sj+6sfjlH4CgG0=")
public_key = RbNaCl::PublicKey.new(key)

box = RbNaCl::Boxes::Sealed.from_public_key(public_key)
encrypted_secret = box.encrypt("my_secret")

# Print the base64 encoded secret
puts Base64.strict_encode64(encrypted_secret)

Get an environment public key

Works with GitHub Apps

Get the public key for an environment, which you need to encrypt environment secrets. You need to encrypt a secret before you can create or update secrets. Anyone with read access to the repository can use this endpoint. If the repository is private you must use an access token with the repo scope. GitHub Apps must have the secrets repository permission to use this endpoint.

Create or update an environment secret

Works with GitHub Apps

Creates or updates an environment secret with an encrypted value. Encrypt your secret using LibSodium. You must authenticate using an access token with the repo scope to use this endpoint. GitHub Apps must have the secrets repository permission to use this endpoint.

Example encrypting a secret using Node.js

Encrypt your secret using the libsodium-wrappers library.

const sodium = require('libsodium-wrappers')
const secret = 'plain-text-secret' // replace with the secret you want to encrypt
const key = 'base64-encoded-public-key' // replace with the Base64 encoded public key

//Check if libsodium is ready and then proceed.
sodium.ready.then(() => {
  // Convert Secret & Base64 key to Uint8Array.
  let binkey = sodium.from_base64(key, sodium.base64_variants.ORIGINAL)
  let binsec = sodium.from_string(secret)

  //Encrypt the secret using LibSodium
  let encBytes = sodium.crypto_box_seal(binsec, binkey)

  // Convert encrypted Uint8Array to Base64
  let output = sodium.to_base64(encBytes, sodium.base64_variants.ORIGINAL)

  console.log(output)
});

Example encrypting a secret using Python

Encrypt your secret using pynacl with Python 3.

from base64 import b64encode
from nacl import encoding, public

def encrypt(public_key: str, secret_value: str) -> str:
  """Encrypt a Unicode string using the public key."""
  public_key = public.PublicKey(public_key.encode("utf-8"), encoding.Base64Encoder())
  sealed_box = public.SealedBox(public_key)
  encrypted = sealed_box.encrypt(secret_value.encode("utf-8"))
  return b64encode(encrypted).decode("utf-8")

Example encrypting a secret using C#

Encrypt your secret using the Sodium.Core package.

var secretValue = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes("mySecret");
var publicKey = Convert.FromBase64String("2Sg8iYjAxxmI2LvUXpJjkYrMxURPc8r+dB7TJyvvcCU=");

var sealedPublicKeyBox = Sodium.SealedPublicKeyBox.Create(secretValue, publicKey);

Console.WriteLine(Convert.ToBase64String(sealedPublicKeyBox));

Example encrypting a secret using Ruby

Encrypt your secret using the rbnacl gem.

require "rbnacl"
require "base64"

key = Base64.decode64("+ZYvJDZMHUfBkJdyq5Zm9SKqeuBQ4sj+6sfjlH4CgG0=")
public_key = RbNaCl::PublicKey.new(key)

box = RbNaCl::Boxes::Sealed.from_public_key(public_key)
encrypted_secret = box.encrypt("my_secret")

# Print the base64 encoded secret
puts Base64.strict_encode64(encrypted_secret)
