Using GitLab with Codenvy

SSH Key Configuration

GitLab supports Git which means it is possible to clone, push, fetch and pull repositories. First off, it is necessary to configure SSH keys:

  • go to Window > Preferences > SSH Keys and press Generate Key button. Enter hostname as:

(no www or https!) and click OK

  • the key will appear in the list of SSH keys. Click View and copy the key to clipboard. Make sure you’ve selected and copied the entire key text
  • go to your GitLab profile and find SSH public keys menu on the right
  • add a new key


Clone From GitLab

The easiest way to migrate your projects to Codenvy is to clone GitLab repository with the project’s source code:

  • go to Git > Clone Repository
  • copy and paste the repository Git URL
  • modify project’s name, if appropriate, and click Clone

Push to GitLab

To push to GitLab, you first need to add a remote repository in Codenvy at Git> Remotes > Add (unless it is already there after cloning). Enter the repository name and its SSH Git URL which should look like:

Having added a remote repository, you can push to GitLab at Git > Remote > Push. The repository you have just added should appear in the list of remote repositories. For more info see Remote Repositories.
