Enabling GitHub Actions with MinIO storage

You can enable GitHub Actions on GitHub Enterprise Server and use MinIO storage to store data generated by workflow runs.

Who can use this feature

Site administrators can enable GitHub Actions and configure enterprise settings.


Before enabling GitHub Actions, make sure you have completed the following steps:

  • Create your MinIO bucket for storing data generated by workflow runs. For more information about installing and configuring MinIO, see "MinIO High Performance Object Storage" and "mc mb" in the MinIO documentation.

    To avoid resource contention on the appliance, we recommend that MinIO be hosted separately from your GitHub Enterprise Server instance.

    GitHub Actions 需要以下访问密钥的权限才可访问存储桶:

    • s3:PutObject
    • s3:GetObject
    • s3:ListBucketMultipartUploads
    • s3:ListMultipartUploadParts
    • s3:AbortMultipartUpload
    • s3:DeleteObject
    • s3:ListBucket
    • kms:GenerateDataKey(如果已启用密钥管理服务 (KMS) 加密)
  • Review the hardware requirements for GitHub Actions. For more information, see "Getting started with GitHub Actions for GitHub Enterprise Server."

  • TLS must be configured for your GitHub Enterprise Server instance's domain. For more information, see "Configuring TLS."

    Note: 我们强烈建议您在 GitHub Enterprise Server 上配置 TLS,并有信任的机构签名的证书。 虽然自签名证书可以工作,但自托管的运行器需要额外的配置,不推荐用于生产环境。

  • 如果在 your GitHub Enterprise Server instance 上配置了 HTTP 代理服务器:

    • 必须将 localhost127.0.0.1 添加到“HTTP 代理排除”列表。
    • 如果外部存储位置不可路由,则还必须将外部存储 URL 添加到排除列表中。

    有关更改代理设置的详细信息,请参阅“配置出站 Web 代理服务器”。
