Note: This feature is available for free to GitLab.com users until September 22nd, 2019.
GitLab CI/CD can be used with GitHub or any other Git server. Instead of moving your entire project to GitLab, you can connect your external repository to get the benefits of GitLab CI/CD.
- From your GitLab dashboard click New project
- Switch to the CI/CD for external repo tab
- Choose GitHub or Repo by URL
- The next steps are similar to the import flow
