GitLab Integration Details

Launched on Zapier June 27, 2017

Your engineering team can use Zapier to tie in any of their favorite apps to the development lifecycle in GitLab. Keep track of new issues by automatically creating tasks in your project management software, add GitLab issues from new activity in other apps, or post messages to your team's chat whenever new merge requests are submitted.

Here are some creative ways to use GitLab and Zapier:

  • Never forget to file a bug report. Use Zapier to turn customer emails with a specific label into GitLab issues,
  • Track new issues in your favorite to-do app. Use Zapier to update Trello cards or Todoist tasks when issues are opened, updated, or closed.
  • Keep your team posted by sending a team chat message in Slack when a new merge request is submitted.

Zapier combines Triggers (like "New Commit") and Actions (like "Create Issue") to complete an action in one app when a trigger occurs in another app. These combos—called "Zaps"—complete your tasks automatically.

The following GitLab Triggers, Searches, and Actions are supported by Zapier:

New Commit

Trigger when a commit is made on the specified project.

New Issue Event

Triggers on issue events, e.g. when an issue is opened, updated, or closed.

New Merge Request Event

Triggers on an open, merge, or close merge request event.

Create Issue

Creates a new issue.
