GitLab PHP API Client

We present a modern GitLab API v4 client for PHP.


Build Status StyleCI Status Software License Packagist Downloads Latest Version

This is strongly based on php-github-api by KnpLabs. With this in mind, we now have very similar clients for:

Check out the change log, releases, security policy, license, code of conduct, and contribution guidelines.


This version supports PHP 5.6-7.4. To get started, simply require the project using Composer. You will also need to install any package that "provides" php-http/client-implementation.

PHP 5.6+:

$ composer require m4tthumphrey/php-gitlab-api:^9.18 php-http/guzzle6-adapter:^2.0.1

Laravel 5.5+:

$ composer require graham-campbell/gitlab:^2.7 php-http/guzzle6-adapter:^2.0.1

Symfony 3+:

$ composer require zeichen32/gitlabapibundle:^2.6 php-http/guzzle6-adapter:^2.0.1

We are decoupled from any HTTP messaging client by using PSR-7 and HTTPlug. You can visit HTTPlug for library users to get more information about installing HTTPlug related packages. The framework integration graham-campbell/gitlab is by Graham Campbell and zeichen32/gitlabapibundle is by Jens Averkamp.

General API Usage

// Token authentication
$client = new Gitlab\Client();
$client->authenticate('your_http_token', Gitlab\Client::AUTH_HTTP_TOKEN);

// OAuth2 authentication
$client = new Gitlab\Client();
$client->authenticate('your_oauth_token', Gitlab\Client::AUTH_OAUTH_TOKEN);

// An example API call
$project = $client->projects()->create('My Project', [
    'description' => 'This is a project',
    'issues_enabled' => false,

Self-Hosted GitLab

$client = new Gitlab\Client();
$client->authenticate('your_http_token', Gitlab\Client::AUTH_HTTP_TOKEN);

Example with Pager

to fetch all your closed issue with pagination ( on the gitlab api )

$pager = new Gitlab\ResultPager($client);
$issues = $pager->fetchAll($client->issues(), 'all', [null, ['state' => 'closed']]);

Model Usage

You can also use the library in an object oriented manner:

// Creating a new project
$project = Gitlab\Model\Project::create($client, 'My Project', [
    'description' => 'This is my project',
    'issues_enabled' => false,


// Creating a new issue
$project = new Gitlab\Model\Project(1, $client);
$issue = $project->createIssue('This does not work.', [
    'description' => 'This doesn\'t work properly. Please fix.',
    'assignee_id' => 2,

// Closing that issue

HTTP Client Builder

By providing a Gitlab\HttpClient\Builder to the Gitlab\Client constructor, you can customize the HTTP client. For example, to customize the user agent:

$plugin = new Http\Client\Common\Plugin\HeaderSetPlugin([
    'User-Agent' => 'Foobar',

$builder = new Gitlab\HttpClient\Builder();

$client = new Gitlab\Client($builder);
