Self-hosted SCMs on CloudBees CodeShip

2 minute read

Enterprise support

CodeShip supports self-hosted Git repositories for the GitHub Enterprise, GitLab Community Edition, GitLab Enterprise Edition and Bitbucket Server products - in addition to our standard cloud SCM support.

Exposing Ports

To use your private Git server with CodeShip, you will need a publicly reachable endpoint with ports 22 and 443 open to the internet.

We require port 22 to clone your repository to run your builds and port 443 for status and clone requests.

Note that Bitbucket Server uses port 7999 rather than port 22.

To check that these ports are open you can run the following against your server from your local machine:

nc -v -w1 22
Connection to 22 port [tcp/ssh] succeeded!

nc -v -w1 443
Connection to 443 port [tcp/https] succeeded!

Personal Access Tokens

To connect to your self-hosted Git instance, you will need to retrieve your personal access token and add it to your Connected Services page.

To fetch your token, follow these instructions:

Bitbucket Note CodeShip requires Bitbucket Server 5.5 due to prior versions not providing personal access tokens.

Github Note Although we now use Github Apps for connecting CodeShip to your cloud Github organization, Github Apps are not yet available for Github Enterprise. Once they become available we will update our integration.

Gitlab Note We require Gitlab version 9.6.3 or later due to user access design changes.

Token Access Scopes

In order for CodeShip to be allowed to setup the necessary hooks etc. the personal access tokens need to have the correct set of scopes. Below you’ll find the necessary setting for each of the three self-hosted Git servers:

When you’re using a self-hosted git server, you will need to supply your username as well so that we can map up your builds with your CodeShip account and show them on your personal dashboard. All users of self-hosted git servers will need to do this, for the personal dashboard to work, but are not required to supply access codes. If you don’t expect to be pushing code, and are mainly setting up CodeShip for others, you can leave the username(s) blank.

Note: Users of cloud SCMs, who authenticate with oAuth, do not need to supply usernames as we get the username as part of the authentication workflow.

Static IP Addresses

We have a static IP addresses feature, which allows you to provide access to your git server, from just eight specific IP addresses. See Static IP Addresses documentation for more details.

SCM Feature Requests

We are continually evaluating our SCM integration support. If there is something you would like to see, please get in touch and let us know more details about your SCM needs.
