## How to configure runner for GitLab CI integration tests (uses confined Docker executor)
### 1. Register the runner
The registration token can be found at ``.
You can export it as a variable and run the command below as is:
gitlab-ci-multi-runner register \
--non-interactive \
--url "" \
--registration-token "REGISTRATION_TOKEN" \
--description "gitlab-ci-ruby-2.1" \
--executor "docker" \
--docker-image ruby:2.1 --docker-mysql latest \
--docker-postgres latest --docker-redis latest
You now have GitLab CI integration testing instance with bundle caching.
Push some commits to test it.
For [advanced setup](../configuration/, look into
`/home/gitlab_ci_multi_runner/config.toml` and tune it.
