GitLab Cloud#

Follow the instructions below to set up the Codacy Self-hosted integration with GitLab Cloud.

Create a GitLab application#

To integrate Codacy with GitLab Cloud, you must create a GitLab application:

  1. Open https://gitlab.com/profile/applications.

  2. Fill in the fields to register your Codacy instance on GitLab:

    • Name: Name of the application. For example, Codacy.

    • Redirect URI: Copy the URLs below, replacing the HTTP protocol and hostname with the correct values for your Codacy instance. This field is case sensitive.

      https://codacy.example.com/login/GitLab
      https://codacy.example.com/add/addProvider/GitLab
      https://codacy.example.com/add/addService/GitLab
      https://codacy.example.com/add/addPermissions/GitLab
      
    • Scopes: Enable the scopes:

      • api
      • read_user
      • read_repository
      • openid

    GitLab Cloud application

  3. Click Save application and take note of the generated Application Id and Secret.

Configure GitLab Cloud on Codacy#

After creating the GitLab application, you must configure it on Codacy:

  1. Edit the file values-production.yaml that you used to install Codacy.

  2. Set global.gitlab.enabled: "true" and define the remaining values as described below using the information obtained when you created the GitLab application:

    gitlab:
      enabled: "true"
      login: "true" # Show login button for GitLab Cloud
      clientId: "" # Application ID
      clientSecret: "" # Secret
    
  3. Apply the new configuration by performing a Helm upgrade. To do so execute the command used to install Codacy:

    Important

    If you're using MicroK8s you must use the file values-microk8s.yaml together with the file values-production.yaml.

    To do this, uncomment the last line before running the helm upgrade command below.

    helm upgrade (...options used to install Codacy...) \
                 --version 4.4.0 \
                 --values values-production.yaml \
                 # --values values-microk8s.yaml
    

After this is done you will be able to use GitLab Cloud to authenticate to Codacy.
