deploy after gitlab runner completes build

I’m want to use gitlab runners to deploy a successfully built docker image but I am not sure how to use the deploy stage in .gitlab-ci.yml to do this. The build log shows the database is properly created on the docker image during the build process.

I use docker locally on a Mac (OSX 10.11.6) to build my docker container. Gitlab is running remotely. I registered a specific local runner to handle the build. When I push changes to my project, gitlab CI runs the build script to create a test database. What happens to the image after it’s built? There is no docker image for the completed build listed on my local machine. The gitlab-runner-prebuilt-x86_64 is a barebones linux image that isn’t connected with the build.

    You’re not building any docker image on CI.

    You are using php7 image from DockerHub to execute all jobs. This includes the job deploy_job1, that are trying to use docker binary to push an image (deploy:latest) that is not inside that container. Additionaly, I think that docker binary is not included on the php7 image.

    I guess that you want to push the image that you build locally on your Mac, isn’t it? In that case, you need to use another runner, which its executor should be shell. On that scenario, you will have 2 runners, one using docker to run the build_job1 job, and another one to push the locally built image. But there is a better solution that build manually the docker image, and it’s to make GitLab CI to build it.

    So, modifing your .gitlab-ci.yml (removing your comments, adding mines for explanation):

    # Removed global image definition
      - build
      - test
      - deploy     
      db_name: db_test
      db_schema: "db_test_schema.sql"
      stage: build
      # Use image ONLY in docker runner
      image: php7:latest
        - service mysql start
        - echo "create database $db_name" | mysql -u root
        - mysql -u root $db_name < $db_schema
        - mysql -u root -e "show databases; use $db_name; show tables;"
      # Run on runner with docker executor, this is ok
        - docker
      stage: deploy
        # Build the docker image first, and then push it
        - docker build -t deploy:latest .
        - docker push deploy:latest
      # Run on runner with shell executor, set proper tag
        - docker_builder

    When you register the new runner, set executor as shell and tags docker_builder. I’m asuming that you have installed docker engine on your Mac.

    On the other hand, this example makes no sense, at least for me. The build stage does nothing, as the container is ephemeral. I guess you should do that on the Dockerfile.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
