GitHub Action

Steps to add a Bump GitHub Action

Generate your API documentation

Bump is a Continuous Documentation Platform: it lets you keep your API doc always synchronized with your codebase. With this Github Action you can automatically generate your API reference (with changelog and diff) on Bump from any OpenAPI or AsyncAPI file.


Start by creating a documentation on Bump. Then add this workflow to your GitHub project:

name: Deploy documentation
- master
name: Deploy API doc on Bump
runs-on: ubuntu-latest
- name: Checkout
uses: actions/[email protected]
- name: Deploy API documentation
uses: bump-sh/github-[email protected]
doc: <BUMP_DOC_ID>
token: ${{secrets.BUMP_TOKEN}}
file: doc/api-documentation.yml

actions/checkout has to be called before this action.
