GitLab Documentation

Geo nodes admin area

For more information about setting up GitLab Geo, read the Geo documentation.

When you're done, you can navigate to Admin area ➔ Geo nodes (/admin/geo_nodes).

In the following table you can see what all these settings mean:

Setting Description
Primary This marks a Geo Node as primary. There can be only one primary, make sure that you first add the primary node and then all the others.
URL Your instance's full URL, in the same way it is configured in /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb (Omnibus GitLab installations) or gitlab.yml (source based installations).
Public Key The SSH public key of the user that your GitLab instance runs on (unless changed, should be the user git).

A primary node will have a star right next to it to distinguish from the secondaries.
