Admin area settings

In the admin area settings, you can find various options for your GitLab instance like sign-up restrictions, account limits and quota, metrics, etc.

Navigate to it by going to Admin area > Settings. Some of the settings include:

GitLab.com admin area settings

Most of the settings under the admin area change the behavior of the whole GitLab instance. For GitLab.com, the admin settings are available only for the GitLab.com administrators, and the parameters can be found on the GitLab.com settings documentation.
