GitHub Private Repositories
Okteto integrates with GitHub and allows you to easily deploy any repository from any account or organization you grant permissions to. You can connect both personal repositories and those belonging to an organization in the same Okteto account.
You'll need to perform the following steps the first time you grant GitHub permissions to Okteto:
Log into Okteto Cloud
Click on the "Launch Dev Environment" button on the top
Make sure "GitHub" is the selected source
Click on the Configure GitHub button, to open the authorization dialog from GitHub. GitHub will ask you to install the Okteto Cloud App in the accounts and organizations you select. Follow the instructions to grant permissions to your repositories.
Finally click on the Install & Authorize button to proceed. If you're not the administrator of the organization, GitHub will send an email notification to your administrator and wait for their authorization to complete the installation and grant you access.
Once you or your administrator grants permission, Okteto will automatically list your private and public repositories in the Launch dialog.
Private repositories will be identified by a "lock" icon.
Launch from a Private GitHub Repository
After giving Okteto access to any of your public or private repositories, you'll be able to deploy from a GitHub repository using an Okteto Manifest.
Other Private Repositories
You can also use
SSH authentication to deploy a private repository. To do this, use the
SSH url of your git repository. This applies both when using the
Deploy dialog in the Okteto UI and the
okteto pipeline deploy command from your terminal.
