DoIT Shared Tools - Git - Distributed Version Control Service

The Git Version Control System is a code repository available to DoIT technologists and other developers on campus. This is an instance of GitLabs (Git). This install is meant to support a wide variety of clients, provide maximum flexibility in configuration and offer other value-added, repository related services.


Preferred access method for repositories is via SSH, though that is limited to UW Madison Campus IPs.

HTTPS access is available for the web interface and repository access from any IP range.

The terms of service including training links is available at

The Git service is currently only supported for DoIT users (i.e. groups created etc...).

However, UW-Madison Staff/Students/Faculty are eligible to use the service "personal project" features as anyone with a NetID is able to access the service.
