Projects API

Interact with projects using the REST API.

Project visibility level

A project in GitLab can be private, internal, or public. The visibility level is determined by the visibility field in the project.

Values for the project visibility level are:

  • private: project access must be granted explicitly to 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.

For more, read Project visibility.

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. You can make sure that the target branch would build after this merge request builds and merges.
  • ff: no merge commits are created and all merges are fast-forwarded. Merging is only allowed if the branch could be fast-forwarded.

List all projects

The _links.cluster_agents attribute in the response was introduced in GitLab 15.0.

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.

GET /projects

This endpoint supports keyset pagination for selected order_by options.

When simple=true or the user is unauthenticated this returns something like:

Example request:

curl --request GET "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/projects"

note
The tag_list attribute has been deprecated and is removed in API v5 in favor of the topics attribute.
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

Example request:

curl --globoff --request GET "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/projects?custom_attributes[location]=Antarctica&custom_attributes[role]=Developer"

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.

List user projects

The _links.cluster_agents attribute in the response introduced in GitLab 14.10.

Get a list of visible projects owned by the given user. When accessed without authentication, only public projects are returned.

note
Only the projects in the user’s (specified in user_id) namespace are returned. Projects owned by the user in any group or subgroups are not returned. An empty list is returned if a profile is set to private.

This endpoint supports keyset pagination for selected order_by options.

Delete project

This endpoint:

caution
The default behavior of Delayed Project deletion in GitLab 12.6 was changed to Immediate deletion in GitLab 13.2, as discussed in Enable delayed project deletion.
DELETE /projects/:id
AttributeTypeRequiredDescription
idinteger or string YesThe ID or URL-encoded path of the project.

Restore project marked for deletion

Introduced in GitLab 12.6.

Restores project marked for deletion.

POST /projects/:id/restore
AttributeTypeRequiredDescription
idinteger or string YesThe ID or URL-encoded path of the project.

Upload a file

Uploads a file to the specified project to be used in an issue or merge request description, or a comment. GitLab versions 14.0 and later enforce this limit.

POST /projects/:id/uploads
AttributeTypeRequiredDescription
filestring YesThe file to be uploaded.
idinteger or string YesThe ID or URL-encoded path of the project.

To upload a file from your file system, use the --form argument. This causes cURL to post data using the header Content-Type: multipart/form-data. The file= parameter must point to a file on your file system and be preceded by @. For example:

curl --request POST --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" \
     --form "file=@dk.png" "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/projects/5/uploads"

Returned object:

{
  "alt": "dk",
  "url": "/uploads/66dbcd21ec5d24ed6ea225176098d52b/dk.png",
  "full_path": "/namespace1/project1/uploads/66dbcd21ec5d24ed6ea225176098d52b/dk.png",
  "markdown": "![dk](/uploads/66dbcd21ec5d24ed6ea225176098d52b/dk.png)"
}

The returned url is relative to the project path. The returned full_path is the absolute path to the file. In Markdown contexts, the link is expanded when the format in markdown is used.

Max attachment size enforcement

Introduced in GitLab 13.11.

GitLab 13.11 added enforcement of the maximum attachment size limit behind the enforce_max_attachment_size_upload_api feature flag. GitLab 14.0 enables this by default. To disable this enforcement:

In Omnibus installations:

  1. Enter the Rails console:

    sudo gitlab-rails console
    
  2. Disable the feature flag:

    Feature.disable(:enforce_max_attachment_size_upload_api)
    

In installations from source:

  1. Enter the Rails console:

    cd /home/git/gitlab
    sudo -u git -H bundle exec rails console -e production
    
  2. Disable the feature flag:

    Feature.disable(:enforce_max_attachment_size_upload_api)
    

Upload a project avatar

Uploads an avatar to the specified project.

PUT /projects/:id
AttributeTypeRequiredDescription
avatarstring YesThe file to be uploaded.
idinteger or string YesThe ID or URL-encoded path of the project.

To upload an avatar from your file system, use the --form argument. This causes cURL to post data using the header Content-Type: multipart/form-data. The file= parameter must point to an image file on your file system and be preceded by @. For example:

Example request:

curl --request PUT --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" \
     --form "avatar=@dk.png" "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/projects/5"

Returned object:

{
  "avatar_url": "https://gitlab.example.com/uploads/-/system/project/avatar/2/dk.png"
}

Remove a project avatar

Introduced in GitLab 15.4.

To remove a project avatar, use a blank value for the avatar attribute.

Example request:

curl --request PUT --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" \
     --data "avatar=" "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/projects/5"
