Gitlab Enterprise Integration

🚧

Note

Gitlab Enterprise is only supported on env0 Organizations signed up for our Self-Hosted Agent.

Initial Gitlab Enterprise Setup

For env0 to be able to clone your code and post back commit statuses when running Plan on Pull Request you need to provide it with an access token with write permissions.

This only needs to be done once for your Organization.

  1. Create a Personal access token on your Gitlab Enterprise.
  • We recommend creating the token for a bot user - as that is the user that will post back commit statuses and comments.
  • The user must have access to each repository you would like to be able to use with env0.
  • The token must have the “read_repository” and "api" scopes defined.
  1. Encode the personal access token in base64, and use it in the K8S agent installation process as a helm value - gitlabEnterpriseCredentialsEncoded. See X.
  2. Install/update the agent with the new value

New Template

  1. Click CREATE NEW TEMPLATE on the top right corner in the Templates screen.
  2. Pick your template type, enter a name for the template and then click NEXT
  3. Click the Gitlab Enterprise button.
  4. Enter your repository's HTTPs URL.
  5. If you would like to pull the code from a specific revision or branch, enter that in the Revision field. Leaving this field empty will use your default branch, which is usually “master”/"main".
  6. Enter the folder your IaC files are located in under Terraform Folder or Terragrunt Folder. If your IaC files are at the root of the repository, leave this empty.
  7. If you haven't configured env0 Webhooks on this repository before, copy the Webhook URL and Webhook Secret values and paste them on your Gitlab Enterprise's repository's settings page. More on that here.
  8. Click NEXT to proceed to the variables section
  9. Add environment and IaC variables that you'd like to be used during deployment, and then click on NEXT to go to the final "Projects" section
  10. Pick the projects that you'd like to have access to deploy this template, and then click on DONE to create the template.
