To add a source control server to the system, use the Content Management service in VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle to add a source control server endpoint.

Use the following procedure to add a source control server endpoint.


  • Verify that you have access to a Bitbucket, GitHub, or GitLab instance that is supported for this version of VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle. For more information on the supported versions of Bitbucket, GitHub, and GitLab, see Working with Content Management in VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle.
  • Log in to GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket, and generate an access token for your user that supports all scopes. Copy and save this one-time token.
  • Log in to GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket and verify the existing group, project, and branch before adding the instance as a source control endpoint.
Note: When you deactivate the file editor option, the Bitbucket API (PUT/POST) is not accessible to an administrator or developer. Do not include the feature.file.editor property in the property file or set the property to true.

  1. On the My Services dashboard, click Content Management.
  2. Click Content Settings.
  3. On the Source Control Access tab, click ADD SOURCE CONTROL SERVER.
  4. Select the Source Control Type.
  5. Enter the IP address or fully qualified domain name of the server and click SUBMIT.
    VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle uses https format for any source control APIs by default. If you have not activated https on the GitLab instance, then specify http://ip address:port for the source control server on the content settings page to change the format. When you create a source control endpoint, the repository must be specified using a GroupName/ProjectName format. Use at least a 4 vCPU Bitbucket machine for optimal performance.
  6. Click the Edit icon for the source control server.
  7. Enter your GitLab or Bitbucket server access token in the ACCESS KEY text box and click SUBMIT.
    1. For a GitHub instance, enter the credentials for the user name and password or the access token.
    2. Click SUBMIT.
    An access token is a unique identity for a user to perform check-in or check-out to track the GitLab or GitHub API. Create an access token for GitLab or GitHub by specifying the GitLab or GitHub server URL, for example, or For Bitbucket server and Cloud, browse to and navigate to App Passwords to create a password with full permissions.
