GitLab - install and configure using Helm

Before installing, review the prerequisites and the general instructions for installation using Helm.

To use this chart, you must first add the Snyk Broker Helm Chart by adding the repo:

helm repo add snyk-broker

Then, run the following commands to install the Broker and customize the environment variables. Refer to GitLab - environment variables for Snyk Broker for definitions of the environment variables.

For the gitlab value, do not include https://.

brokerToken is a Helm variable that feeds into and sets the BROKER_TOKEN environment variable. It is the Helm way to pass the token.

ACCEPT_CODE is set to true by default in the chart, as is ACCEPT_IAC. You can disable them if needed using disableAutoAcceptRules=true, but otherwise, these are enabled.

Use the environment variable REMOVE_X_FORWARDED_HEADERS=true to remove the XFF headers from the requests made by the Broker client to GitLab. This allows the Broker to work properly.

Snyk AppRisk is set by default to false. Enable it by setting the flag to true.

helm install snyk-broker-chart snyk-broker/snyk-broker \
             --set scmType=gitlab \
             --set brokerToken=<ENTER_BROKER_TOKEN> \
             --set gitlab=<ENTER_GITLAB_URL> \
             --set scmToken=<ENTER_GITLAB_TOKEN> \
             --set brokerClientUrl=<ENTER_BROKER_CLIENT_URL>:<ENTER_BROKER_CLIENT_PORT> \
             --set enableAppRisk=true \
             -n snyk-broker --create-namespace

You can pass any environment variable of your choice in the Helm command. For details, see Custom additional options for Broker Helm Chart. Follow the instructions for Advanced configuration for Helm Chart installation to make configuration changes as needed.

You can verify that the Broker is running by looking at the settings for your brokered integration in the Snyk Web UI to see a confirmation message that you are connected. You can start importing Projects once you are connected.
