Gitea / Forgejo

Woodpecker comes with built-in support for Gitea and the "soft" fork Forgejo. To enable Gitea you should configure the Woodpecker container using the following environment variables:

WOODPECKER_GITEA=true
WOODPECKER_GITEA_URL=YOUR_GITEA_URL
WOODPECKER_GITEA_CLIENT=YOUR_GITEA_CLIENT
WOODPECKER_GITEA_SECRET=YOUR_GITEA_CLIENT_SECRET

Gitea on the same host with containers

If you have Gitea also running on the same host within a container, make sure the agent does have access to it. The agent tries to clone using the URL which Gitea reports through its API. For simplified connectivity, you should add the woodpecker agent to the same docker network as Gitea is in. Otherwise, the communication should go via the docker0 gateway (usually 172.17.0.1).

To configure the Docker network if the network's name is gitea, configure it like this:

 version: '3'

 services:
   [...]
   woodpecker-agent:
     [...]
     environment:
       - [...]
+      - WOODPECKER_BACKEND_DOCKER_NETWORK=gitea

Registration

Register your application with Gitea to create your client id and secret. You can find the OAuth applications settings of Gitea at https://gitea.<host>/user/settings/. It is very import the authorization callback URL matches your http(s) scheme and hostname exactly with https://<host>/authorize as the path.

If you run the Woodpecker CI server on the same host as the Gitea instance, you might also need to allow local connections in Gitea, since version v1.16. Otherwise webhooks will fail. Add the following lines to your Gitea configuration (usually at /etc/gitea/conf/app.ini).
