Overall Satisfaction with Gitlab

We use Gitlab in a small group of 5 developers, including the Scrum Master. Practically, we use the board to display our issues and organize its status (doing, in progressing, code revere, ready to UAT). We also use Gitlab repository and the wiki to describe the project.
  • Easier then Jira.
  • Beautiful UI.
  • Sometimes when you click on the card it doesn't open.
  • Plugin for test cases as we have in Jira.
  • Easy to manage issues on board.
  • You case use API to access project information.
I never used GitHub for work, but to keep my blog and personal code safe and accessible wherever I go. Jira is a swiss army knife. With its plug-in, you can do more things than Gitlab. On Jira, you can block, for example, a user to move tickets to UAT to code review. On Jira, you can have more reports and even create your workflow.
Gitlab is easy to use. It's a ready to go software.

Do you think GitLab delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with GitLab's feature set?


Did GitLab live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of GitLab go as expected?


Would you buy GitLab again?


If you have small or medium projects, go ahead and give a try on Gitlab. Two years ago, we changed Jira to Gitlab. We exported the issues and repositories into Gitlab. The Scrum Master is happier in using these tools because he always says that Gitlab is easier and less complex than Jira.
