Features
Built-in CI/CD GitLab has built-in Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery, for free, no need to install it separately. Use it to build, test, and deploy your website (GitLab Pages) or webapp. The job results are displayed on merge requests for easy access.
Cycle Analytics GitLab has built-in Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery, for free, no need to install it separately. Use it to build, test, and deploy your website (GitLab Pages) or webapp. The job results are displayed on merge requests for easy access.
Issue Tracker Quickly set the status, assignee or milestone for multiple issues at the same time or easily filter them on any properties. See milestones and issues across projects.
Issue Boards GitLab provides a dashboard that lets teams measure the time it takes to go from an idea to production. GitLab can provide this data because it has all the tools built-in: from the idea, to the CI, to code review, to deploy to production.
Time tracking Time Tracking in GitLab lets your team add estimates and record time spent on issues and merge requests.
Preview your changes with Review Apps With GitLab CI/CD you can create a new environment for each one of your branches, speeding up your development process. Spin up dynamic environments for your merge requests with the ability to preview your branch in a live environment.
Mattermost integration (ChatOp) Mattermost is a Slack-like ChatOp tool and it can be automatically installed and integrated using GitLab Omnibus
Publish static websites for free with GitLab Pages GitLab Pages provides an easy system for hosting static sites using GitLab repositories and GitLab CI, complete with custom domains and HTTPS support.
Group-level milestones Create and manage milestones across projects, from the group level. View all the issues for the milestone you’re currently working on across multiple projects.

-
Issue Board Focus Mode Get more information at a time with the Issue Board focus mode, which removes all unnecessary elements from the screen to show your Issue Boards.
-
Multiple Issue Boards Large companies often have hundreds of different projects, all with different moving parts at the same time. GitLab Enterprise Edition allows for multiple Issue Boards for a single project so you can to plan, organize, and visualize a workflow for a feature or product release. Multiple Issue Boards are particularly useful for large projects with more than one team or in situations where a repository is used to host the code of multiple products.
-
Multiple approvals in code review In GitLab, to ensure strict code review, you can require a specific number of approvals on a merge request by different users before being able to merge it. You can undo an approval by removing it after the fact.
-
Related issues Explicitly mark issues as related and track their status.
-
Issue Weights GitLab lets you manage issues using Agile practices by setting the weight of an issue.

-
Merge request approvals When a project requires multiple sign-offs, GitLab Enterprise Edition enables you to make sure every merge request is approved by one or more people. Merge request approvals allow you to set the number of necessary approvals and predefine a list of approvers that will need to approve every merge request in a project, and in-turn improve your code’s quality.

Built for distributed teams, GitLab Geo allows for read-only mirrors of your GitLab instance, reducing the time it takes to clone and fetch large repos and improving your collaboration process.
- -
Service Desk Allow external users to create issues in your GitLab instance without an account and without access to anything except their issue. Manage tickets from the GitLab interface.
- -
Support for High Availability To avoid downtime, GitLab Enterprise Edition Premium offers support for High Availability (HA). A Service Engineer will help you identify your specific HA needs and map out an architecture.

- - -
Dynamic Application Security Testing Once your application is online, GitLab allows running Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST) in CI/CD pipelines; your application will be scanned to ensure threats like XSS or broken authentication flaws are not affecting it.

- - -
Static Application Security Testing for Docker Containers When building a Docker image for your application, GitLab can run a security scan to ensure it does not have any known vulnerability in the environment where your code is shipped. Results are then shown in the Merge Request. This feature is available as part of [Auto DevOps](https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/topics/autodevops/#auto-sast) to provide security-by-default.
- - -
Web IDE (Beta) Contribute to projects faster by using the Web IDE to avoid context switching in your local development environement.
- - -
Coming soon: Roadmaps Plan and visualize epics over time using roadmaps.
- - -
Coming soon: Portfolio Management Plan and track work at the feature level by collecting multiple issues together in the same group.

Testimonials and Customers Stories

We had more than 2,000 GitLab projects in just a few months! That's a very fast adoption rate compared to our other code hosting platforms. While we are not yet actively asking users to move their projects to GitLab, many are attracted by GitLab's features and move proactively"

Alexandre Lossent, Service Manager for the version control systems at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research)

GitLab enables us to balance internal team preferences with management requirements. The team had always wanted to move to Git, but they also wanted a user-friendly interface to help their workflows - and GitLab provides it all!"

Keith Harris, Associate Director and Software Architect , 360i

GitLab is a great private repository. I like its wiki, web hooks, intuitive interface and GitLab CI continuous integration feature"
