Version: 1.0.x


Woodpecker is compatible with Prometheus and exposes a /metrics endpoint. Please note that access to the metrics endpoint is restricted and requires an authorization token with administrative privileges.

scrape_interval: 60s

- job_name: 'woodpecker'
bearer_token: dummyToken...

- targets: ['']


An administrator will need to generate a user API token and configure in the Prometheus configuration file as a bearer token. Please see the following example:

scrape_interval: 60s

- job_name: 'woodpecker'
+ bearer_token: dummyToken...

- targets: ['']

Unauthenticated Access

Alternatively, the unprotected /metrics endpoint might be exposed on the internal port. (Port is configurable via the WOODPECKER_METRICS_SERVER_ADDR environment variable, e.g. :9001.)
