GitLab User for CI Runner?

Hey I wanted to make my repo private or unlisted, but the runner fails as it does not have access.

I tried to add “gitlab-ci-token” as a member but that didn’t work. Any ideas?

So one thing to be careful about, due to the Microchip tools, the runner is a shared user (beagle) over shell… So it’s not ‘docker’ isolated, so if you touch ~/.ssh/* other users would also have access… (and for context, there are also 2 vm’s each having up to 4 runners)… (vm has daily backups)

You can define/create variables in your fork’s ci settings… Create an application password with your account, and pass that data thru the variable into .gitlab-ci.yml/etc…
