Use Argos with GitLab CI
Configure GitLab CI to send screenshots to Argos visual testing platform.
Configuring environment variable
Argos uses the
ARGOS_TOKEN to identify to which repository the screenshots you send are related.
To get token value, sign in to Argos and click on the button in front of your repository.
In your GitLab repository, go to Settings > CI/CD > and then expand the Variables section. Then, set the
ARGOS_TOKEN as an environment variable.
Warning: Be careful to store your Argos token safely.
ARGOS_TOKENenvironment variable should be accessible by your CI but not visible publicly.
If you are not comfortable with storing secret, read Gitlab CI documentation about adding a CI/CD variable to a project.
