Migrations

Some versions need some changes to the server configuration or the pipeline configuration files.

next

  • Deprecated steps.[name].group in favor of steps.[name].depends_on (see workflow syntax to learn how to set dependencies)
  • Removed WOODPECKER_ROOT_PATH and WOODPECKER_ROOT_URL config variables. Use WOODPECKER_HOST with a path instead
  • Pipelines without a config file will now be skipped instead of failing

2.0.0

  • Dropped deprecated CI_BUILD_*, CI_PREV_BUILD_*, CI_JOB_*, *_LINK, CI_SYSTEM_ARCH, CI_REPO_REMOTE built-in environment variables
  • Deprecated platform: filter in favor of labels:, read more
  • Secrets event property was renamed to events and image to images as both are lists. The new property events / images has to be used in the api. The old properties event and image were removed.
  • The secrets plugin_only option was removed. Secrets with images are now always only available for plugins using listed by the images property. Existing secrets with a list of images will now only be available to the listed images if they are used as a plugin.
  • Removed build alias for pipeline command in CLI
  • Removed ssh backend. Use an agent directly on the SSH machine using the local backend.
  • Removed /hook and /stream API paths in favor of /api/(hook|stream). You may need to use the "Repair repository" button in the repo settings or "Repair all" in the admin settings to recreate the forge hook.
  • Removed WOODPECKER_DOCS config variable
  • Renamed link to url (including all API fields)
  • Deprecated CI_COMMIT_URL env var, use CI_PIPELINE_FORGE_URL

1.0.0

  • The signature used to verify extension calls (like those used for the config-extension) done by the Woodpecker server switched from using a shared-secret HMac to an ed25519 key-pair. Read more about it at the config-extensions documentation.
  • Refactored support for old agent filter labels and expressions. Learn how to use the new filter
  • Renamed step environment variable CI_SYSTEM_ARCH to CI_SYSTEM_PLATFORM. Same applies for the cli exec variable.
  • Renamed environment variables CI_BUILD_* and CI_PREV_BUILD_* to CI_PIPELINE_* and CI_PREV_PIPELINE_*, old ones are still available but deprecated
  • Renamed environment variables CI_JOB_* to CI_STEP_*, old ones are still available but deprecated
  • Renamed environment variable CI_REPO_REMOTE to CI_REPO_CLONE_URL, old is still available but deprecated
  • Renamed environment variable *_LINK to *_URL, old ones are still available but deprecated
  • Renamed API endpoints for pipelines (<owner>/<repo>/builds/<buildId> -> <owner>/<repo>/pipelines/<pipelineId>), old ones are still available but deprecated
  • Updated Prometheus gauge build_* to pipeline_*
  • Updated Prometheus gauge *_job_* to *_step_*
  • Renamed config env WOODPECKER_MAX_PROCS to WOODPECKER_MAX_WORKFLOWS (still available as fallback)
  • The pipelines are now also read from .yaml files, the new default order is .woodpecker/*.yml and .woodpecker/*.yaml (without any prioritization) -> .woodpecker.yml -> .woodpecker.yaml
  • Dropped support for Coding, Gogs and Bitbucket Server (Stash).
  • /api/queue/resume & /api/queue/pause endpoint methods were changed from GET to POST
  • rename pipeline: key in your workflow config to steps:
  • If you want to migrate old logs to the new format, watch the error messages on start. If there are none we are good to go, else you have to plan a migration that can take hours. Set WOODPECKER_MIGRATIONS_ALLOW_LONG to true and let it run.
  • Using repo-id in favor of owner/repo combination
    • ⚠️ The api endpoints /api/repos/{owner}/{repo}/... were replaced by new endpoints using the repos id /api/repos/{repo-id}
    • To find the id of a repo use the /api/repos/lookup/{repo-full-name-with-slashes} endpoint.
    • The existing badge endpoint /api/badges/{owner}/{repo} will still work, but whenever possible try to use the new endpoint using the repo-id: /api/badges/{repo-id}.
    • The UI urls for a repository changed from /repos/{owner}/{repo}/... to /repos/{repo-id}/.... You will be redirected automatically when using the old url.
    • The woodpecker-go api-client is now using the repo-id instead of owner/repo for all functions
  • Using org-id in favour of owner name
    • ⚠️ The api endpoints /api/orgs/{owner}/... were replaced by new endpoints using the orgs id /api/repos/{org-id}
    • To find the id of orgs use the /api/orgs/lookup/{org_full_name} endpoint.
    • The UI urls for a organization changed from /org/{owner}/... to /orgs/{org-id}/.... You will be redirected automatically when using the old url.
    • The woodpecker-go api-client is now using the org-id instead of org name for all functions
  • The command: field has been removed from steps. If you were using it, please check if the entrypoint of the image you used is a shell.
    • If it is a shell, simply rename command: to commands:.
    • If it's not, you need to prepend the entrypoint before and also rename it (e.g., commands: <entrypoint> <cmd>).

0.15.0

  • Default value for custom pipeline path is now empty / un-set which results in following resolution:

    .woodpecker/*.yml -> .woodpecker.yml -> .drone.yml

    Only projects created after updating will have an empty value by default. Existing projects will stick to the current pipeline path which is .drone.yml in most cases.

    Read more about it at the Project Settings

  • From version 0.15.0 ongoing there will be three types of docker images: latest, next and x.x.x with an alpine variant for each type like latest-alpine. If you used latest before to try pre-release features you should switch to next after this release.
