Overall Satisfaction with GitLab

GitLab is a great version control system that enables us to create repositories, push/pull the code from the said repositories, merge code into branches, etc. It is also a DevOps platform using which you can develop, secure, and operate your software. It also comes with CICD pipelines using which we can create builds of the current code (from any branch) by passing parameters directly from the Gitlab UI. The best part is that it is open-source and has a huge userbase so security and support are pretty good.
  • Version Control
  • CICD Pipelines
  • Works with Git client
  • DevOps support
  • It is good enough for my usage and I don't have any problems with things. The UI is good enough and it is fast too!
  • I am not involved in that
GitLab is free and open-source with all the functionalities you get with GitHub so it becomes an obvious choice for all the businesses to go with.
GitLab is pretty secure as it works on your private network, has limitations on how many requests can be sent per minute, has options to restrict access (authorization), and has an authentication (user has to log in before accessing any repos), etc. These are some of the things that make it secure.
GitLab allows your team to work on the same module and then push their code in their respective branches and get it merged by someone who has the access. We have been using this as our team works on a project which is shared by other teams as well. Everyone works on their own modules (sometimes the same modules too) and push their code to their own branches and then raises a merge request. The senior developers then review the code and merge it which makes continuous integration seamless.

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?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy GitLab again?


I mostly use GitLab for version control. It allows us to push our code to a centralized repository that can be accessed by other developers. This makes working on the same code seamless. Taking code from different branches, Pushing new code to different branches, getting your code merged to different branches, etc. is something that makes it a great tool. The CICD pipeline comes in handy when we have to run a particular task while creating the build (like checking test cases) which is a great option.
