Automate GitLab releases

Automatically release the UI Bakery app upon merging a merge request

Step 1. Enable the Instance API

To enable the UI Bakery Instance API please follow this guide

Step 2. Create GitLab pipeline

To create a release pipeline follow this steps:

  • Go to Build/Pipeline Editor tab

  • Click Configure Pipeline

  • Paste the following content:

  - deploy

  stage: deploy
  environment: production
  only: ["main"]
    - |
        curl https://UI_BAKERY_INSTANCE/api/instance/app/APP_ID/pull?uib_branch=main \
        -X POST \
        -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
        -H "Authorization: Bearer TOKEN"
    - |
        curl https://UI_BAKERY_INSTANCE/api/instance/app/APP_ID/release \
        -X POST \
        -d '{"version":"1.0.1", "prod": true, "staging": false, "description": "Automated release"}' \
        -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
        -H "Authorization: Bearer TOKEN"
    - echo "Application successfully deployed."
  • Replace the UI_BAKERY_INSTANCE placeholder with your domain name.

  • Replace APP_ID with your app ID (can be found in URL).

  • Replace TOKEN with the value of your UI_BAKERY_INSTANCE_API_TOKEN variable

The pipeline will be executed on every push/merge into the "main" branch
