Configuring Runbooks

Since Transposit is backed by git, you can manage your runbooks like code.

Cloning your runbook can be useful for a few different reasons, such as:

  • Duplicating a runbook
  • Backing up a runbook in a git provider (e.g., GitHub, GitLab, etc.)
  • Offline copies of a runbook
  • Versioning a runbook

You can locally clone a runbook with Transposit, as described below.

  1. Go to Settings > Account.
  2. Copy the Git access token from this page.
  3. Clone your repository locally using your Transposit username and your git access token as the password using command below.

git clone<YOUR TEAM NAME>.

Note: For convenience, you can create a .netrc file in your home directory that stores these credentials. The file will have an entry as below.


Your cloned git repository will have the structure below.

├── runbooks

If you make changes locally, make sure to git push to update the runbook in Transposit.
