Geo Nodes API

In order to interact with Geo node endpoints, you need to authenticate yourself as an admin.

Create a new Geo node

Creates a new Geo node.

POST /geo_nodes
curl --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" https://primary.example.com/api/v4/geo_nodes \
     --request POST \
     -d "name=himynameissomething" \
     -d "url=https://another-node.example.com/"
Attribute Type Required Description
primary boolean no Specifying whether this node will be primary. Defaults to false.
enabled boolean no Flag indicating if the Geo node is enabled. Defaults to true.
name string yes The unique identifier for the Geo node. Must match geo_node_name if it is set in gitlab.rb, otherwise it must match external_url
url string yes The user-facing URL for the Geo node.
internal_url string no The URL defined on the primary node that secondary nodes should use to contact it. Returns url if not set.
files_max_capacity integer no Control the maximum concurrency of LFS/attachment backfill for this secondary node. Defaults to 10.
repos_max_capacity integer no Control the maximum concurrency of repository backfill for this secondary node. Defaults to 25.
verification_max_capacity integer no Control the maximum concurrency of repository verification for this node. Defaults to 100.
container_repositories_max_capacity integer no Control the maximum concurrency of container repository sync for this node. Defaults to 10.
sync_object_storage boolean no Flag indicating if the secondary Geo node will replicate blobs in Object Storage. Defaults to false.
selective_sync_type string no Limit syncing to only specific groups or shards. Valid values: "namespaces", "shards", or null.
selective_sync_shards array no The repository storage for the projects synced if selective_sync_type == shards.
selective_sync_namespace_ids array no The IDs of groups that should be synced, if selective_sync_type == namespaces.
minimum_reverification_interval integer no The interval (in days) in which the repository verification is valid. Once expired, it will be reverified. This has no effect when set on a secondary node.
