Enabling GitHub Packages with MinIO

Set up GitHub Packages with MinIO as your external storage.

Warnings:

  • It is critical that you set the 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 on the public internet.
  • 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 your GitHub Enterprise Server instance, you need to prepare your MinIO storage bucket. To help you quickly set up a MinIO bucket and navigate MinIO's customization options, see the "Quickstart for configuring your MinIO storage bucket for GitHub Packages."

Ensure your MinIO external storage access key ID and secret have these permissions:

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

Enabling GitHub Packages with MinIO external storage

Although MinIO does not currently appear in the user interface under "Package Storage", MinIO is still supported by GitHub Packages on GitHub Enterprise. Also, note that MinIO's object storage is compatible with the S3 API and you can enter MinIO's bucket details in place of AWS S3 details.
