Capabilities

Settings

GitLab Instance (api_url)

GitLab API/instance URL. When an API path is omitted, /api/v4/ is assumed.

Access Token (private_token)

GitLab personal access token or other API token.

Groups (groups)

Space-separated names of groups to extract data from. Leave empty and provide a project name if you’d like to pull data from a project in a personal user namespace.

Project (projects)

Space-separated namespace/project paths of projects to extract data from. Leave empty and provide a group name to extract data from all group projects.

ultimate_license

Enable to pull in extra data (like Epics, Epic Issues and other entities) only available to GitLab Ultimate and GitLab.com Gold accounts.

fetch_merge_request_commits

For each Merge Request, also fetch the MR’s commits and create the join table merge_request_commits with the Merge Request and related Commit IDs. This can slow down extraction considerably because of the many API calls required.

fetch_pipelines_extended

For every Pipeline, also fetch extended details of each of these pipelines. This can slow down extraction considerably because of the many API calls required.

start_date

Determines how much historical data will be extracted. Please be aware that the larger the time period and amount of data, the longer the initial extraction can be expected to take.
