Configure Automated Builds from GitHub and BitBucket

Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

To automate building and testing of your images, you link to your hosted source code service to Docker Hub so that it can access your source code repositories. You can configure this link for user accounts or organizations.

Note: If you are linking a source code provider to create autobuilds for a team, follow the instructions to create a service account for the team before linking the account as described below.

  1. Click Settings in the top-right dropdown navigation.

  2. Click or scroll down to Linked Accounts.

  3. Click the plug icon for the source provider you want to link.

    Note: If you are the owner of any GitHub organizations, you might see options to grant Docker Hub access to them from this screen. You can also individually edit an organization’s Third-party access settings to grant or revoke Docker Hub’s access. See Grant access to a GitHub organization to learn more.

  5. Click Authorize application to save the link.

  1. Log in to Docker Hub using your Docker ID.

  2. Click Settings in the top-right dropdown navigation.

To revoke Docker Hub’s access to your GitHub account, you must unlink it both from Docker Hub, and from your GitHub account.

  1. Click Settings in the top-right dropdown navigation, and click or scroll to the Linked Accounts section.

  2. Click the plug icon next to the source provider you want to remove.

    The icon turns gray and has a slash through it when the account is disabled but not revoked. You can use this to temporarily disable a linked source code provider account.

  3. Go to your GitHub account’s Settings page.

  4. Click OAuth applications in the left navigation bar.

  5. Click Revoke next to the Docker Hub Builder application.

Note: Each repository that is configured as an automated build source contains a webhook that notifies Docker Hub of changes in the repository. This webhook is not automatically removed when you revoke access to a source code provider.

Grant access to a GitHub organization

If you are the owner of a GitHub organization, you can grant or revoke Docker Hub’s access to the organization’s repositories. Depending on the GitHub organization’s settings, you may need to be an organization owner.

If the organization has not had specific access granted or revoked before, you can often grant access at the same time as you link your user account. In this case, a Grant access button appears next to the organization name in the link accounts screen, as shown below. If this button does not appear, you must manually grant the application’s access.
