GitLab connection

Learn how to connect with GitLab.

Actioner connects with GitLab through OAuth2.

OAuth2 authentication with GitLab

To authenticate in GitLab with OAuth2

  1. Click Connect near the GitLab connection. You can find the connection on Description tab of your app.

  2. You will be asked to sign in to your GitLab account if you haven't already.

  3. Click Authorize Actioner to grant permission to Actioner app in your GitLab account. You’ll be redirected to Actioner upon successful authorization.

Sharing scope

You can enable Shared option to execute GitLab actions by the selected app's workflows. It's important to clarify that sharing your connection doesn't equate to sharing your credentials. Instead, it grants access to workflows to use your connection for execution. Rest assured, your credentials remain concealed and inaccessible to other users.

Additionally, enabling Shared option doesn't automatically start using your connection for every GitLab interaction. Instead, your shared connection credentials are used only when explicitly chosen. However, note that that enabling Shared option makes your connection accessible to all app admins when designing workflows in your app.


If your GitLab credentials change, you can reconnect Actioner with GitLab.

Go to Profile settings page from left bottom corner, navigate to My connections tab and then click ... ellipsis and select Reconnect. Enter your credentials and complete authorization on the opening screen.
