In this post we’ll cover how to install, configure and register Runner.
So many choices!
Runner can be installed on various operating systems/tools (Linux, Windows, Mac, Kubernetes, Docker), to name a few. If you’re interested, a full list can be found in the documentation. For the purpose of this post, we’ll use the Dockerised version on a CoreOS instance which is running in AWS. (Boy, that was a mouthful!)
URL & Token
Before we can spin up our Runner, we’ll first need to retrieve our GitLab URL and registration token. We can obtain both of these by:
- Selecting a repository
- Clicking “Settings” –> “CI/CD”
- Navigating to the “Specific Runners” section
