We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"A user friendly solution."
"I like GitLab from the CI/CD perspective. It is much easier to set up CI/CD and then integrate with other tools."
"GitLab offers a good interface for doing code reviews between two colleagues."
"It is very useful for reviews. We are using branch merging operations and full reset operations. It is also very useful for merging our code and tracking another branch. The graph diagrams of Git are very useful. Its interface is straightforward and not too complex for us."
"The best thing is that as the developers work on separate tasks, all of the code goes there and the other team members don't have to wait on each other to finish."
"This product is always evolving, and they listen to the customers."
"We like that we can have an all-encompassing product and don't have to implement different solutions."
"It speeds up our development, it's faster, safer, and more convenient."
"Our customers use it to check for unauthorized file transfer."
"The solution could improve by providing more integration into the CI/CD pipeline, an autocomplete search tool, and more supporting documentation."
"It would be better if there weren't any outages. There are occasions where we usually see a lot of outages using GitLab. It happens at least once a week or something like that. Whatever pipelines you're running, to check the logs, you need to have a different set of tools like Argus or something like that. If you have pipelines running on GitLab, you need a separate service deployed to view the logs, which is kind of a pain. If the logs can be used conveniently on GitLab, that would be definitely helpful. I'm not talking about the CI/CD pipelines but the back-end services and microservices deployed over GitLab. To view the logs for those microservices, you need to have separate log viewers, which is kind of a pain."
"It can be free for commercial use."
"The only thing our company is really waiting on in terms of features is the development of metrics."
"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."
"I would like to see better integration with project management tools such as Jira."
"It could have more security integrations and the ability to check the vulnerability of the code. I don't think it is a responsibility of Gitlab, but it would be nice to have more options to integrate with."
"We are having a few problems integrating with Jira at the moment, which is something that our IT department is investigating."
"I would also like to see updates on a more frequent schedule."
"It seems reasonable. Our IT team manages the licenses."
"The price is okay."
"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."
"I think that we pay approximately $100 USD per month."
"I don't mind the price because I use the free version."
"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."
