Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"We like that we can have an all-encompassing product and don't have to implement different solutions.""I like GitLab from the CI/CD perspective. It is much easier to set up CI/CD and then integrate with other tools.""A user friendly solution.""I like that it's easy to deploy our services over GitLab. The customer support is also good with a really active community. You have a lot of support that you can get online with your stack. That is probably one of the benefits of using GitLab. It's also really fast.""The most valuable features of Gitlab are integration with CIE and the ability to rapidly deploy solutions, projects, and applications. It is very easy to use, and there are no complaints.""This product is always evolving, and they listen to the customers.""GitLab is very useful for pipelines, continuous integration, and continuous deployment. It is also stable.""I have had no problem with the stability of the solution."

More GitLab Pros »

"I would say that it is stable, as I am not aware of any major issues.""When it is set up properly, it can do scanning on web apps with multiple engines automatically.""The setup is usually straightforward.""It is really accurate and the rate of false positives is very low."

Cons
"I would like to see static analysis also embedded in GitLab. That would also help us. If there's something that it does internally by GitLab and then that is already tied up with your pipeline and then it can tell you that you're coding is good or your code is not great. Based on that, it would pass or fail. That should be streamlined. I would think that would help to a greater extent, in terms of having one solution rather than depending on multiple vendors.""The solution could improve by providing more integration into the CI/CD pipeline, an autocomplete search tool, and more supporting documentation.""We would like to generate document pages from the sources.""In the free version, when a merge request is raised, there is no way to enforce certain rules. We can't enforce that this merge request must be reviewed or approved by two or three people in the team before it is pushed to the master branch. That's why we are exploring using some agents.""The documentation could be improved to help newcomers better understand things like creating new branches.""We are having a few problems integrating with Jira at the moment, which is something that our IT department is investigating.""Based on what I know so far, its integration with Kubernetes is not so good. We have to develop many things to make it work. We have to acquire third-party components to work with Kubernetes.""It can be free for commercial use."

More GitLab Cons »

"The tech support is responsive but issues remain unresolved.""Support response times are slow and can be improved.""Integration could be better.""The enterprise interface is too simple. It should be more customizable.""The dashboard and interface are crucial and they need some improvement.""AppSpider could improve in the area of integration. They need to add more integration opportunities."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"I think that we pay approximately $100 USD per month.""The price is okay.""Its price is fine. It is on the cheaper side and not expensive. You have to pay additionally for GitLab CI/CD minutes. Initially, we used the free version. When we ran out of GitLab minutes, we migrated to the paid version.""It seems reasonable. Our IT team manages the licenses.""I don't mind the price because I use the free version.""It is very expensive. We can't bear it now, and we have to find another solution. We have a yearly subscription in which we can increase the number of licenses, but we have to pay at the end of the year."

More GitLab Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It is expensive if you want to buy the Enterprise version that is able to scan multiple applications at once.""The price is pretty fair."
