Project remote mirrors API

Push mirrors defined on a project’s repository settings are called “remote mirrors”, and the state of these mirrors can be queried and modified via the remote mirror API outlined below.

List a project’s remote mirrors

Introduced in GitLab 12.9.

Returns an Array of remote mirrors and their statuses:

GET /projects/:id/remote_mirrors

Example request:

curl --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/projects/42/remote_mirrors"

Example response:

[
  {
    "enabled": true,
    "id": 101486,
    "last_error": null,
    "last_successful_update_at": "2020-01-06T17:32:02.823Z",
    "last_update_at": "2020-01-06T17:32:02.823Z",
    "last_update_started_at": "2020-01-06T17:31:55.864Z",
    "only_protected_branches": true,
    "keep_divergent_refs": true,
    "update_status": "finished",
    "url": "https://*****:*****@gitlab.com/gitlab-org/security/gitlab.git"
  }
]
Note: For security reasons, the url attribute will always be scrubbed of username and password information.

Create a remote mirror

Introduced in GitLab 12.9.

Create a remote mirror for a project. The mirror will be disabled by default. You can enable it by including the optional parameter enabled when creating it:

POST /projects/:id/remote_mirrors
Attribute Type Required Description
url String yes The URL of the remote repository to be mirrored.
enabled Boolean no Determines if the mirror is enabled.
only_protected_branches Boolean no Determines if only protected branches are mirrored.
keep_divergent_refs Boolean no Determines if divergent refs are skipped.

Example request:

curl --request POST --data "url=https://username:token@example.com/gitlab/example.git" --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/projects/42/remote_mirrors"

Example response:

{
    "enabled": false,
    "id": 101486,
    "last_error": null,
    "last_successful_update_at": null,
    "last_update_at": null,
    "last_update_started_at": null,
    "only_protected_branches": false,
    "keep_divergent_refs": false,
    "update_status": "none",
    "url": "https://*****:*****@example.com/gitlab/example.git"
}

Update a remote mirror’s attributes

Toggle a remote mirror on or off, or change which types of branches are mirrored:

PUT /projects/:id/remote_mirrors/:mirror_id
Attribute Type Required Description
mirror_id Integer yes The remote mirror ID.
enabled Boolean no Determines if the mirror is enabled.
only_protected_branches Boolean no Determines if only protected branches are mirrored.
