Configure Percy environment variables in Semaphore

Percy is designed to integrate with your tests and CI environment. To enable Percy, the token environment variable must be configured in your CI service:

  • PERCY_TOKEN: The Percy repo write-only API token. This is unique for each Percy repository.

Semaphore project setup

Semaphore provides an easy way to set environment variables in settings for a repository:


In your Semaphore project go to Settings > Environment Variables.

Then set PERCY_TOKEN to the write-only token from your Percy repo. This token can be found in each Percy repo's settings.


IMPORTANT: Keep your Percy token secret. Anyone with access to your token can consume your account quota, though they cannot read data.

Make sure "Encrypt content" is checked.

Next step: integrate with tests

You're done with setup---the last step is to integrate Percy into your tests and run them. Just choose your client library:
