Getting Started

This integration creates a workflow with a Gitlab trigger and Node action. When you configure and deploy the workflow, it will run on Pipedream's servers 24x7 for free.

  1. Select this integration
  2. Configure the New Milestone trigger
    1. Connect your Gitlab account
    2. Configure timer
    3. Select a Project ID
  3. Configure the Run Node Code action
    1. Connect your Node account
  4. Deploy the workflow
  5. Send a test event to validate your setup
  6. Turn on the trigger

Details

This integration uses pre-built, source-available 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.

Trigger

Description:Emit new event when a milestone is created in a project
Version:0.1.1
Key:gitlab-new-milestone

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

Trigger Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI and CLI.

Trigger Authentication

Gitlab uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Gitlab account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Gitlab and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. 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:
