GitLab

GitLab is a self-hosted git version control management system, similar to GitHub. You can integrate it with CA Flowdock to receive notifications about commits. These instructions work for both the self-hosted version and GitLab Cloud. Here's how to integrate:

  1. Select a flow to create a Git source for the GitLab integration.
  2. Log in to GitLab and open the settings of the project you want to integrate with your flow.
  3. From the menu on the top of the screen, select Integrations.
  4. From the Project Services available, find and select Flowdock.
  5. Enter the token you received from the first step. Ensure the Active checkbox is selected.
  6. Save your settings. You should now receive messages in your team inbox from GitLab.

Note: There is a limitation with GitLab integrations that you will need to work around to set up successfully:
  • If there are zero commits in the project, you will encounter a GitLab error that will prevent you from saving your token.
  • If there are 1-2 commits in the project, you will receive a different error. Proceed by selecting save anyway.
  • If you have a minimum of three commits in the project, your integration setup should proceed successfully.
