github action commit to remote repository

#Github #actions help you to #automate Processes (CI/CD).

In my Example I tried to checkout source code, scan for Strings, append found Strings to a File and commit changes to separate repository.

As you know, actions are saved in your Repository under the Path: .github/workflows/workflow.yaml

        # check out source repository
      - name: checkout source repository (this)
        uses: actions/checkout@v3

        # check out target repository
      - name: checkout target
        uses: actions/checkout@v3
          repository: example/target
          ssh-key: ${{ secrets.DEPLOY_SECRET }}

        # do your thing...
      - name: do things
        run: modify files in target...

      # commit to target repository
      - name: commit changes
        uses: stefanzweifel/git-auto-commit-action@v4
          repository: example/target

Explanation: -1. Checkout run with “example/source” -2․ Checkout run with “example/target” – used “with”: – repository to Checkout a other Repo – ssh-key for authentication (Deploy Key for target) -3. commit Changes, if found

Good luck!
