Details

This integration uses pre-built, open source components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Gitlab Overview

Gitlab API allows developers to access the functionality of Gitlab. With the
Gitlab API, developers can integrate Gitlab with other applications, create
custom applications, or automate tasks.

Some examples of what you can build using the Gitlab API include:

  • Automate tasks such as creating and managing repositories
  • Integrate Gitlab with other applications such as your chat application
  • Create custom applications on top of Gitlab

Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Gitlab API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:
