GitLab Enterprise#

Follow the instructions below to set up the Codacy Self-hosted integration with GitLab Enterprise:

Create a GitLab application#

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

  1. Open <gitlab enterprise url>/profile/applications as a GitLab admin, where <gitlab enterprise url> is the URL of your GitLab Enterprise instance.

  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.
    • Scopes: Enable the scopes:

      • api
      • read_user
      • read_repository
      • openid

    GitLab Enterprise application

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

Configure GitLab Enterprise 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.gitlabEnterprise.enabled: "true" and define the remaining values as described below using the information obtained when you created the GitLab application:

      enabled: "true"
      login: "true" # Show login button for GitLab Enterprise
      hostname: "" # Hostname of your GitLab Enterprise instance
      protocol: "https" # Protocol of your GitLab Enterprise instance
      port: 443 # Port of your GitLab Enterprise instance
      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:


    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 Enterprise to authenticate to Codacy.

Detect changes to repositories and organizations#

Optionally, Codacy can automatically detect the following changes to repositories and organizations on your GitLab Enterprise instance:

  • For repositories: renames, deletes, and visibility changes
  • For organizations: renames, deletes, and access removed

To do this, you must configure a System Hook on your GitLab Enterprise instance to notify Codacy of the changes:

  1. Open <gitlab enterprise url>/admin/hooks as a GitLab admin, where <gitlab enterprise url> is the URL of your GitLab Enterprise instance.

  2. Fill in the fields to create the System Hook:

    • URL: The URL of your Codacy instance with the path /2.0/events/gle/organization. For example,

    • Secret Token: Copy the Application Secret from the GitLab application that you created previously, or from the value of clientSecret in the file values-production.yaml that you used to install Codacy.

    • Trigger: Enable the trigger Repository update events

    • SSL verification: Enable the SSL verification.

    GitLab Enterprise System Hook

  3. Click Save Changes to save the System Hook.
