- Revoke a user’s personal access token
- Delete a user’s SSH key
- Review existing GPG keys
Introduced in GitLab 12.6.
GitLab administrators are responsible for the overall security of their instance. To assist, GitLab provides a Credentials inventory to keep track of all the credentials that can be used to access their self-managed instance.
- Who they belong to.
- Their access scope.
- Their usage pattern.
- When they expire. Introduced in GitLab 13.2.
- When they were revoked. Introduced in GitLab 13.2.
To access the Credentials inventory, navigate to Admin Area > Credentials.
The following is an example of the Credentials inventory page:
Introduced in GitLab 13.4.
If you see a Revoke button, you can revoke that user’s PAT. Whether you see a Revoke button depends on the token state, and if an expiration date has been set. For more information, see the following table:
|Token state||Token expiration enforced?||Show Revoke button?||Comments|
|Active||Yes||Yes||Allows administrators to revoke the PAT, such as for a compromised account|
|Active||No||Yes||Allows administrators to revoke the PAT, such as for a compromised account|
|Expired||Yes||No||PAT expires automatically|
|Expired||No||Yes||The administrator may revoke the PAT to prevent indefinite use|
|Revoked||Yes||No||Not applicable; token is already revoked|
|Revoked||No||No||Not applicable; token is already revoked|
When a PAT is revoked from the credentials inventory, the instance notifies the user by email.
Introduced in GitLab 13.5.
You can Delete a user’s SSH key by navigating to the credentials inventory’s SSH Keys tab. The instance then notifies the user.
You can view all existing GPG in your GitLab instance by navigating to the credentials inventory GPG Keys tab, as well as the following properties:
- Who the GPG key belongs to.
- The ID of the GPG key.
- Whether the GPG key is verified or unverified
Enabling or disabling the GPG keys view is under development but ready for production use. It is deployed behind a feature flag that is enabled by default. GitLab administrators with access to the GitLab Rails console can opt to disable it.
