GitLab

GitLab is a common provider used by those seeking an on-premise solution who do not want their source code managed by a third party provider. Many companies choose to run this system internally. Below, you will find the list of options that can be configured to get the system running. Either private or oauth should be provided. Otherwise, you will only have access to public repositories. I’ve found configuring the private token to be the easiest.

accounts:
# full gitlab schema
- gitlab:
    base_url: "<base_url>"
    users:
    - "<username>"
    groups:
    - "<groupname>"
    strategy: "SSH | HTTP"
    private:
      token: "<private_token>"
    oauth:
      token: "<oauth_token>"
      application_id: "<application_id>"

Due to the variance in each of the client, there are a few oddities between each of the implementations. While we work on getting parity between each of the providers take note that this implementation:

  • pulls groups for the authenticated user
  • does not pull groups for the configured users
  • pulls repositories for all users and groups (configured and discovered)

Example

Crawl all of Nvidia’s public repositories on GitLab.

accounts:
- gitlab:
    groups:
    - nvidia
    strategy: HTTP
