GitLab

tap-gitlab (airbyte variant)🥉

Single application for the entire DevOps lifecycle

The tap-gitlab extractor pulls data from GitLab that can then be sent to a destination using a loader.

Airbyte Usage Notice

This connector uses tap-airbyte-wrapper to call the underlying Airbyte source Docker container. This means you must have Docker installed and running prior to usage. We also recommend using Meltano version 2.13.0 or later.

Container-based connectors can introduce deployment challenges including the potential need to run Docker-in-Docker (not currently supported by services like AWS ECS, Meltano Cloud, etc. see FAQ and Airbyte's ECS deployment docs for more details). Before using this variant we recommend considering if/how you will be able to deploy container-based connectors to production.

For more context on how this Airbyte integration works please checkout out the FAQ in the Meltano Docs.
