GitLab hosted is now supported!

We have great news! As you know Keypup is integrated with GitLab to give you an overview of your merge requests.

Our GitLab integration allows you to import merge requests and issues to better track development activities across all - or selected - projects in one place.

Because you requested it, Keypup now allows you to connect hosted GitLab instances, giving you the best of both worlds: the Gitlab hosted instance you are used to and like combined with the full power of the Keypup engine to help you be more efficient and gain visibility and agility.

In order to complete the connection process you'll need to create an OAuth application in GitLab. Nothing too complicated as you know!


It's a great feature because you can enhance your workflow and gain precious time with these remote actions from the dashboard:

  • Link merge requests and issues: merge requests and issues can be linked to each other directly from the Priority inbox using the 🔗icon. In order to link items we update the description of the parent merge request and add a "closes: https://issue-url.domain" auto-linking keyword at the bottom of it.
  • Merge pull requests: approved merge requests with a green build on the Keypup platform - if any - and a mergeable status can be merged directly from the Keypup Review & Merge board.
  • Quick reply on items: it is possible to comment on a merge request or an issue from the Priority inbox. For issues replies can be done either directly on the issue or via the issue activity feed when an issue is nested under a merge request.

To link issues to pull requests, simply use the URL or #id ('#' + 'id') or reference (org/project#123) of a GitLab issue in your merge request title, description, or in one of your commit messages.

#Data set we retrieve: Go see the GitLab integration page to know what data we fetch.

#Didyouknow: Using GitLab Free Edition? Keypup offers a Free approval flow allowing you to benefit from a full and comprehensive approval workflow, even if you use the free version of Gitlab which natively does not provide this feature.

If you are interested in using Keypup with GitLab, we invite you to read our tutorial on how to Connect a hosted GitLab instance to Keypup via a custom OAuth app on the Keypup Help Center.
