Security and Compliance Admin Area settings

The settings for package metadata synchronization are located in the Admin Area.

Choose package registry metadata to sync

The full package metadata sync can add up to 30 GB to the PostgreSQL database. Ensure you have provisioned enough disk space for the database before enabling this feature. We are actively working on reducing this data size in epic 10415.

To choose the packages you want to synchronize with the GitLab License Database for License Compliance:

  1. On the top bar, select Main menu > Admin.
  2. On the left sidebar, select Settings > Security and Compliance.
  3. Expand License Compliance.
  4. Select or clear checkboxes for the package registries that you want to sync.
  5. Select Save changes.
