The Gitlab source supports both Full Refresh and Incremental syncs. You can choose if this connector will copy only the new or updated data, or all rows in the tables and columns you set up for replication, every time a sync is run.

Output schema

This connector outputs the following streams:


Full Refresh SyncYes
Incremental - Append SyncPartially (not all streams)
SSL connectionYes

Performance considerations

Gitlab has the rate limits, but the Gitlab connector should not run into Gitlab API limitations under normal usage. Please create an issue if you see any rate limit issues that are not automatically retried successfully.

Getting started


  • Gitlab Account
  • Gitlab Personal Access Token wih the necessary permissions (described below)

Setup guide

Log into Gitlab and then generate a personal access token.

Your token should have the read_api scope, that Grants read access to the API, including all groups and projects, the container registry, and the package registry.

Note: You can specify either Group IDs or Project IDs in the source configuration. If both fields are blank, the connector will retrieve a list of all the groups that are accessible to the configured token and ingest as normal.

Additional information

GitLab source is working with GitLab API v4. It can also work with self-hosted GitLab API v4.
