As an author you can select a source of your plugin codebase. I'm working on a premium plugin and I want to know if it is possbile to submit a private repository. When I use my private repository clone address it doens't work, but a public repository works well.
Yes, you can use a private repository, although you'll need to make it public temporarily when you want October to pull a new version.
Once it's built the version, it's safe to make the repository private again.
Edit: If you use Github or Bitbucket for your private repository, you can add the
octoberapp user to it so you don't need to make it public at any point. This was mentioned in the docs somewhere, but I can't seem to find it.
Thank you for your advice. :)
The Octoberapp user is invited as a collaborator, but it is still not working. I'm not sure if I miss something or if I did something wrong.
Did you ever solve this? I have the same issue.
Is it solved yet? I am having the same issue as of now. I have invited octoberapp as a collaborator and the invitation stays pending. Is there a delay for the octoberapp to accept the invitation?
@dshoreman It is mentioned here in the docs under "Updating plugins automatically" last paragraph. It is also mentioned on the form where you add a new plugin as an author.
Any news on this?
Question is still actual
For private repositories - add
octoberapp user to the repository and use SSH (not HTTPS) URL. Example:
- email@example.com:username/plugin.git - correct URL
- https://firstname.lastname@example.org/username/plugin.git - incorrect URL
octoberapp user is mentioned in the documentation for authors and also on the Codebase tab of the plugin/theme settings page.
Hi, I'm just trying to setup a private plugin sourced from a Bitbucket repo. The docs say to add the user octoberapp to the account for access, however Bitbucket has a new security provision that requires an email address of the user that is being added. Is there an email address we can use?
