Projects API

Project visibility level

Project in GitLab can be either private, internal or public. This is determined by the visibility field in the project.

Values for the project visibility level are:

  • private: project access must be granted explicitly for each user.
  • internal: the project can be cloned by any signed-in user except external users.
  • public: the project can be accessed without any authentication.

Project merge method

There are three options for merge_method to choose from:

  • merge: a merge commit is created for every merge, and merging is allowed if there are no conflicts.
  • rebase_merge: a merge commit is created for every merge, but merging is only allowed if fast-forward merge is possible. This way you could make sure that if this merge request would build, after merging to target branch it would also build.
  • ff: no merge commits are created and all merges are fast-forwarded, which means that merging is only allowed if the branch could be fast-forwarded.

List all projects

Get a list of all visible projects across GitLab for the authenticated user. When accessed without authentication, only public projects with simple fields are returned.

note For users of GitLab Premium or higher, the marked_for_deletion_at attribute has been deprecated, and is removed in API v5 in favor of the marked_for_deletion_on attribute.

Users of GitLab Premium or higher can also see the approvals_before_merge parameter:

[
  {
    "id": 4,
    "description": null,
    "approvals_before_merge": 0,
    ...
  }
]

You can filter by custom attributes with:

GET /projects?custom_attributes[key]=value&custom_attributes[other_key]=other_value

Pagination limits

In GitLab 13.0 and later, offset-based pagination is limited to 50,000 records. Keyset pagination is required to retrieve projects beyond this limit.

Keyset pagination supports only order_by=id. Other sorting options aren’t available.

Unarchive a project

Unarchives the project if the user is either an administrator or the owner of this project. This action is idempotent, thus unarchiving a non-archived project doesn’t change the project.

POST /projects/:id/unarchive
