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.



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

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.
