Namespaces

In GitLab, a namespace organizes related projects together. GitLab has two types of namespaces:

  • A personal namespace, which is based on your username. Projects under a personal namespace must be configured one at a time.
  • A group or subgroup namespace. In these namespaces, you can manage multiple projects at once.

To determine whether you’re viewing a group or personal namespace, you can view the URL. For example:

Namespace forURLNamespace
A user named alex.https://gitlab.example.com/alexalex
A group named alex-team.https://gitlab.example.com/alex-teamalex-team
A group named alex-team with a subgroup named marketing.https://gitlab.example.com/alex-team/marketingalex-team/marketing
