Overall Satisfaction with Gitlab
We are using GitLab for git and it's CI/CD capabilities, and that everything is managed and stored within GitLab. One of the major draws of GitLab is their security scans that are only offered in their Ultimate edition. We are using this (and GitLab) for all our projects, which assists us in surfacing security issues, helping us deploy faster, etc. Everything can be self-hosted and self-contained.
- Security scans
- CI/CD pipelines
- Code management
- CICD documentation can get very complex or ambiguous.
- Documentation in general can be improved and updated better.
- Jira integration is still lacking.
Definitely. However, do note that it is not a catch-all thing (nothing in security ever is), so please review, try it out, and see if it meets your needs.
I think this is an implementation question. CICD are just tools in a toolbox. You configure what you want. Separating code into different projects, running scripts to test, deploy, etc. is all up to the user. It is just a way for you to run code. Dockerise if you want. There are a lot of possibilities, and with GitLab updates coming out every month, they are improving (they are a lot better than they were a few years ago).
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?
GitLab is very good if you want to self-host your instance, and it integrates well with Azure AD. I would suggest using this if you want to do everything in GitLab end-to-end, from setting and configuring (DevOps) to security dashboards to sprints to development to code reviews to deployment to even rollback. GitLab is really very powerful and configurable, would suggest to trial it out first and see if it meet your needs.
