Steps to Configure HTTP Artifact Credentials

  • Here, Spinnaker stages that read data from the artifacts will be allowed to read HTTP files directly.

  • If the files are hidden behind basic auth, you can configure an artifact account with the needed credentials to read your artifact. If not, no further configuration is needed, Spinnaker will automatically add a no-auth-http-account for this purpose.


  • Ensure to have the basic auth details, $USERNAME & PASSWORD, then pick a “USERNAME-PASSWORD-FILE” location on the server.

  • Execute the below command to update the settings: echo {USERNAME}:{PASSWORD} > $USERNAME_PASSWORD_FILE
