How to update Git bot Pipeline API token


  • How to update the token for a Git Provider (GitHub, Bitbucket) bot.



There is an API token per Git Provider (bot) linked to your cluster. An API token is added during the installation process, but also you could add new git providers by jx-create-git-server.


1.- The credentials used by pipeline are in a Kubernetes secret. Get the old secrets (Note: in the below example Github is used as SCM).

$ > kubectl get secrets | grep pipeline             
jx-pipeline-git-github-github                  Opaque                                2      63d

$> kubectl get secret jx-pipeline-git-github-github  -o yaml  > secrets-jx-pipeline-git-github-github.yaml

2.- Encode (base64) the new API token and copy it into the data.password field

$ >  echo -n <new-apitoken> | base64

3.- Apply changes

kubectl apply -f secrets-jx-pipeline-git-github-github.yaml
