GitLab Build Variables

Tools for dealing with GitLab CI pipeline build variables.


Managing Multiple Projects

Updating GitLab Build Variables

Sets project build variables based on a configuration file:

gitlab-update-variables --url ${gitlabUrl} --token ${accessToken} --default-setting-extension ${extensions} \
    --setting-repository ${repositoryDirectories} -- ${configLocation}

`See Example 1 <#example-1>`__ for a more intuitive example of how to use this tool!

Managing a Single Project

Setting a GitLab Build Variables

This tool allows a GitLab CI project’s build variables to be set from a ini config file, a JSON file or a shell script that just exports variables:

gitlab-set-variables --url ${gitlabUrl} --token ${accessToken} ${project} ${locationOfVariables}
Getting GitLab Build Variables
gitlab-get-variables --url ${gitlabUrl} --token ${accessToken} ${project}


Example 1

Using the example configuration to update the variables for a number of projects:

$ export gitlabUrl=
$ export accessToken=personalAccessToken

$ gitlab-get-variables --url ${gitlabUrl} --token ${accessToken} cn13/my-project-1
{'VALUE_1': 'other'}

$ gitlab-get-variables --url ${gitlabUrl} --token ${accessToken} cn13/my-project-2

$ gitlab-update-variables --url ${gitlabUrl} --token ${accessToken} --default-setting-extension json ini sh \
    --setting-repository examples/settings -- examples/config.json
Read config from "examples/config.json"
Set variables for "cn13/my-project-1": {'VALUE_1': 'abc', 'VALUE_2': 'other', 'VALUE_3': 'other'}
Set variables for "cn13/my-project-2": {'VALUE_1': 'abc', 'VALUE_2': 'other', 'VALUE_3': 'ghi'}

Example 2

Using the settings defined in the example directory to update a project’s variables:

$ export gitlabUrl=
$ export accessToken=applicationAccessToken

$ gitlab-get-variables --url ${gitlabUrl} --token ${accessToken} my-project
{'VALUE_1': 'other'}

$ gitlab-set-variables --url ${gitlabUrl} --token ${accessToken} group/my-project common.json project.ini
Variables for project "my-project" set to: {'VALUE_1': 'abc', 'VALUE_2': 'def', 'VALUE_3': 'ghi'}
