The exec runner is configured using an environment variable file. The location of the environment file may vary depending on the host operating system and the user account.
On Posix (root):
On Posix (non-root):
This file should use the syntax
<variable>=value which sets the variable to the given value and # for comments. Please note this is not a bash file. Bash syntax and Bash expressions are not supported.
DRONE_RPC_PROTO=https DRONE_RPC_HOST=drone.company.com DRONE_RPC_SECRET=super-duper-secret
Optional boolean value. Enables debug level logging.
Optional boolean value. Enables trace level logging.
Required string value. Defines the protocol used to connect to the Drone server. The value must be either http or https.
Required string values. Defines the hostname (and optional port) used to connect to the Drone server.
Required string value. Provides the shared secret used by the Drone server to authenticate http requests.
Optional boolean value. Disable SSL verification when making http requests to the Drone server. This is unsafe and is not recommended.
Optional boolean value. Enables dumping the http request and response to the logs for debugging purposes. This should only be enabled while debugging connectivity issues between the runner and server.
Optional boolean value. Enables dumping the http request and response body to the logs for debugging purposes. This should only be enabled while debugging connectivity issues between the runner and server.
Optional boolean value. Disables the runner’s user interface.
Optional string value. Sets the basic authentication username used to authenticate and access the web dashboard.
Optional string value. Sets the basic authentication password used to authenticate and access the web dashboard. If no password is provided the web dashboard is disabled.
Optional string value. Sets the basic authentication realm used to authenticate and access the web dashboard.
Optional string value. Sets the name of the runner. The runner name is stored in the server and can be used to trace a build back to a specific runner.
Optional number value. Limits the number of concurrent pipelines that a runner can execute. This does not limit the number of concurrent pipelines that can execute on a single remote instance.
Optional umber value. Limits the number of concurrent steps that a runner can execute for a single pipeline. This is disabled by default. This can be useful if you need to throttle the maximum number of parallel steps to prevent resource exhaustion.
Optional string map. Provides a set of global environment variables that are injected into every pipeline step.
Optional string value. Provides the endpoint used to make http requests to an external secret plugin. The external secret plugin (e.g. vault) can be used to source secrets from third party system.
Optional string value. Provides the secret token used to authenticate http requests to the plugin endpoint.
Optional boolean value. Disable SSL verification when making http requests to the plugin endpoint. This is unsafe and is not recommended.
