DoIT Shared Tools - GitLab - Projects

In GitLab Projects, you can host your codebase, track issues, collaborate on code, and continuously build, test, and deploy your app with built-in GitLab CI/CD.

Project Policies

  • Projects can be created for use in teaching/learning, in research and in administration of the University.
  • By default, users may create 4 personal projects. This amount can be raised on request to 10 projects (or to 40 projects for DoIT staff).
  • Projects should not exceed 2 GB in size.
  • Projects cannot be used to store restricted data.

For project limit increases, information about enterprise use, or other questions on DoIT's GitLab policies, please contact

Project Migrations

When creating a new project select the Import Project tab, then select to import a project from "Repo by URL". Paste a Git repository URL to import, then enter the details for your new project.

Please see GitLab documentation for screenshots and further details.

Project Deletion and Restoration

As a general rule, users should archive old projects as opposed to fully deleting them to avoid unintentional loss.

Note: DoIT is unable to backup/restore individual projects or repositories deleted by users.

Admins are only able to restore the entire DoIT GitLab instance via a Disaster Recovery copy.
