Setup Trunk CI Debugger with Buildkite


Your CI machine needs to have the following tools installed:

  • Bash,

  • Curl

You will need to have ports open for:



Create a trunk organization

To use the CI Debugger, you must first create a trunk organization. See this document for detailed instructions.

Create a breakpoint in the trunk app

Setup your Organization API Token

In order for the CI Debugger to communicate with the trunk web app, it needs to be able to authenticate from the GitHub Action instance to the trunk web application.

Setup Your Buildkite Workflow

Here is an a Buildkite workflow. Replace the three values in the example with the ones specific to your setup.

Here the TRUNK_TOKEN is pasted directly. In a real environment, it should be managed as a secret.

  - label: "Installing Trunk"
    command: "curl -fsSL | bash -s -- -y"
    key: build

  - label: "Running test"
    command: "trunk breakpoint --org=<INSERT YOUR ORG NAME HERE [2]> --id=<Breakpoint Name [3]> -- /bin/false"
    key: test
    depends_on: build
