GitHub Actions

How to use GitHub Actions with your Orka environment.

MacStadium provides 2 approaches to integrating with GitHub Action

  1. A dynamic ephemeral runner which automatically scales the number of runners based on the demand, ensuring optimal resource utilization.
  2. Static runners which run in a long lived VMs that GitHub Actions will use as needed

Our team recommends using the dynamic ephemeral runners.

IMPORTANT

Orka 3.1.x and above requires versionv2.0.0+of the plugin.

Set up the dynamic ephemeral runner

For the latest information about how to use the dynamic ephemeral runners, see https://github.com/macstadium/orka-github-actions-integration/

Set up the static runners

You can work with single or multiple self-hosted runners. Every single self-hosted runner is a permanent agent for your workflows - it persists over time and GitHub Actions uses it when you need to run a workflow.

Set up a single static self-hosted runner

For the latest information about how to set up a single static self-hosted runner, see Using an Automatically Configured Single Self-Hosted GitHub Actions Runner.

Set up multiple static self-hosted runners
