When adding an application, you’ll need to select a Git provider and repository from your account. In addition to GitLab, you can also choose from Bitbucket or GitHub.
Authorize the Kinsta GitLab Application
The first time you add an application in MyKinsta, you’ll need to connect to a git provider so that Kinsta can access your application’s repository. When you click the Add service button and select Add application from the dropdown menu, you’ll be prompted to choose your git provider and connect Kinsta to your account.
If you’ve previously deployed an application and connected a different git provider, you’ll also have the option to select GitLab in the Application details step when adding an application.
If you aren’t logged in to GitLab, you’ll need to log in. On the next page, you’ll need to authorize the Kinsta GitLab application for access to your GitLab account.
You will be returned to MyKinsta. In Application details, select your application’s GitLab repository and Default branch. Then continue with the rest of the Add application steps.
Remove Kinsta Access to GitLab
To remove Kinsta’s access to your GitLab account, you’ll need to revoke access in your User settings in MyKinsta. Click on your username and go to User settings > Access. In Application access, click Revoke for the GitLab application.
If you’re having trouble seeing your repositories in the Add application modal/pop-up, you may need to re-authorize Kinsta’s access to GitLab. To do that, start by removing access between Kinsta and GitLab as described above.
In MyKinsta, in the Add application modal/pop-up (Add service > Add application), go through the steps to connect Kinsta to your GitLab account again.
