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 expiry 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.
