Community GitLab Integration Workflow

This workflow applies to BlueCat customers who use GitLab internally for their repository management and want to promote code from a development environment to GitLab, to Production.


BlueCat Gateway version: 19.5.1 and greater
GitLab API version: v4
Python 3rd party libraries: io, os, re, shutil, sys, zipfile, datetime

Description/Example Usage

This GitLab Import workflow allows you to import all your workflow's and util file in a single click.

Before importing, this will automatically backup your workflow's and util file to a defined folder on the Gateway server. Atfer completing the backup, Gateway will download the file for the project selected. If there is a new workflow being added, you will need to update the permissions after importing. All other workflows assume the same permissions.

Below is the logic:


  1. Run the GitLab Configuration workflow. This will set up the configurables for running this workflow. If you have not completed this workflow, you will have errors running the import!

Example of GitLab setup:

The above image, in this workflow in Gateway, we would select "professional-services/ps-poc/Testing Integrations".

The GitLab Configuration workflow would have the following:

  • Default GitLab Group = 'Professional Services'
  • GitLab Workflow Directory = 'workflows'
  • GitLab Util Directory = 'ps'
  • Gateway Util Directory = 'ps'

The following would import the below into Gateway:

  • ps/
  • workflow/Alias Record
  • workflow/Certified
  • workflow/Deployment
  • workflow/Host Record
  • workflow/IPv4 Address

Known Errors and Bugs:

  1. If you put workflow's in the folder Admin or Administration, the import/backups will not work properly. Please refrain from using these directories.
