Note that your connected account will require "Master" permissions, as the app uses web hooks and thus needs the "Configure project hooks" privilege. See GitLab's docs for details.

  • Enter "Zapier" as an application name.

  • Enter https://zapier.com/dashboard/auth/oauth/return/GitLabCLIAPI/ in the "Redirect URI" field, making sure to include the trailing slash.

  • Be sure to select the checkboxes for "api" and "read_user" under "scopes".

When you're done, click "Save application".
