Setup GitLab Runner

Create GitLab Runner node c2d-gitlab-runner.

This how-to describes how to create local GitLab instance c2d-gitlab-runner. The play plays/dev/gitlab_runner.yml uses the Ansible role robertdebock.gitlab_runner  to create it. The configuration for this node is in group_vars/gitlab_runner/main.yml

Registration token

Navigate to GitLab project c2platform/examples/kubernetes/gitlab-robot  and then SettingsCI/CDRunners and copy the “registration token”. Create or edit file group_vars/all/local_stuff.yml and configure the token for example:

TODO multiple projects in table

c2_gitlab_runner_registration_token: GR13******  #

See Local Stuff for more information about local_stuff.yml.
