That means that if you use gitlab.com free tier and you have more than 5 users – you have to get ready and decide your next steps!

What You Could Do?

Here are some of your options:

  1. Move to one of the paid editions – Premium or Ultimate. You can contact us to learn more about the differences
  2. Consider the Ultimate edition and use an unlimited number of “Guest” users. Guest users have limited permissions yet you may find it good enough
  3. Move to Free self-hosted GitLab (this allows you to use as many as free users you need). We can help you with migration and support.
