We have now been using GitLab CE (self hosted) for about 16 months and have made some good progress. I hope to post a short series of blog entries describing how we got GitLab setup to work for us in a predominantly Microsoft .NET development environment.

In this initial post I hope to summarise what we have acheived which I can then detail “how-to” in subsequent posts. I will probably spin up a new test instance to run through and ensure the steps are accurate (a lot of them were trial and error the first time round).

I may not go into detail on these ones as they are completely bespoke solutions- but if you are interested post a comment and I will try and do a write up;

  • Merge request approvals
  • Project “templates”
  • Global search across all projects and branches
  • Webhooks/integration with our helpdesk

Watch this space!
