Server configuration

User registration

Registration is closed by default. While disabled an administrator needs to add new users manually (exp. woodpecker-cli user add).

If registration is open every user with an account at the configured SCM can login to Woodpecker. This example enables open registration for users that are members of approved organizations:

# docker-compose.yml
version: '3'

services:
  woodpecker-server:
    [...]
    environment:
      - [...]
+     - WOODPECKER_OPEN=true
+     - WOODPECKER_ORGS=dolores,dogpatch

Administrators

Administrators should also be enumerated in your configuration.

# docker-compose.yml
version: '3'

services:
  woodpecker-server:
    [...]
    environment:
      - [...]
+     - WOODPECKER_ADMIN=johnsmith,janedoe

Filtering repositories

Woodpecker operates with the user's OAuth permission. Due to the coarse permission handling of GitHub, you may end up syncing more repos into Woodpecker than preferred.

Use the WOODPECKER_REPO_OWNERS variable to filter which GitHub user's repos should be synced only. You typically want to put here your company's GitHub name.

# docker-compose.yml
version: '3'

services:
  woodpecker-server:
    [...]
    environment:
      - [...]
+     - WOODPECKER_REPO_OWNERS=mycompany,mycompanyossgithubuser

Global registry setting

If you want to make available a specific private registry to all pipelines, use the WOODPECKER_DOCKER_CONFIG server configuration. Point it to your server's docker config.

# docker-compose.yml
version: '3'

services:
  woodpecker-server:
    [...]
    environment:
      - [...]
+     - WOODPECKER_DOCKER_CONFIG=/home/user/.docker/config.json
