Welcome to GitLab Configuration as Code’s documentation!¶
When configuring your GitLab instance, part of the settings you put in Omnibus or Helm Chart configuration, and the rest you configure through GitLab UI or API. Due to tons of configuration options in UI, making GitLab work as you intend is a complex process.
We intend to let you automate things you do through now UI in a simple way. The Configuration as Code has been designed to configure GitLab based on human-readable declarative configuration files written in Yaml. Writing such a file should be feasible without being a GitLab expert, just translating into code a configuration process one is used to executing in the web UI.
