Project integration management

Project integrations can be configured and enabled by project administrators. As a GitLab instance administrator, you can set default configuration parameters for a given integration that all projects can inherit and use. This enables the integration for all projects that are not already using custom settings.

You can update these default settings at any time, changing the settings used for all projects that are set to use instance-level defaults. Updating the default settings also enables the integration for all projects that didn’t have it already enabled.

Only the complete settings for an integration can be inherited. Per-field inheritance is planned as is group-level management of integration settings.

Manage instance-level default settings for a project integration

Introduced in GitLab 13.3.

  1. Navigate to Admin Area > Settings > Integrations.
  2. Select a project integration.
  3. Enter configuration details and click Save changes.
Caution: This may affect all or most of the projects on your GitLab instance. Please review the details below.

If this is the first time you are setting up instance-level settings for an integration:

  • The integration is enabled for all projects that don’t already have this integration configured, if you have the Enable integration toggle turned on in the instance-level settings.
  • Projects that already have the integration configured are not affected, but can choose to use the inherited settings at any time.

When you make further changes to the instance defaults:

  • They are immediately applied to all projects that have the integration set to use default settings.
  • They are immediately applied to newer projects, created since you last saved defaults for the integration. If your instance-level default setting has the Enable integration toggle turned on, the integration is automatically enabled for all such projects.
  • Projects with custom settings selected for the integration are not immediately affected and may choose to use the latest defaults at any time.

Only the complete settings for an integration can be inherited. Per-field inheritance is planned. This would allow administrators to update settings inherited by projects without enabling the integration on all non-configured projects by default.
