Projects API

Project visibility level

Project in GitLab can be either private, internal or public. This is determined by the visibility field in the project.

Values for the project visibility level are:

  • private: Project access must be granted explicitly for each user.

  • internal: The project can be cloned by any logged in user.

  • public: The project can be accessed without any authentication.

Project merge method

There are currently three options for merge_method to choose from:

  • merge: A merge commit is created for every merge, and merging is allowed as long as there are no conflicts.

  • rebase_merge: A merge commit is created for every merge, but merging is only allowed if fast-forward merge is possible. This way you could make sure that if this merge request would build, after merging to target branch it would also build.

  • ff: No merge commits are created and all merges are fast-forwarded, which means that merging is only allowed if the branch could be fast-forwarded.

List all projects

Get a list of all visible projects across GitLab for the authenticated user. When accessed without authentication, only public projects with "simple" fields are returned.

sort string no Return projects sorted in asc or desc order. Default is desc
search string no Return list of projects matching the search criteria
simple boolean no Return only limited fields for each project. This is a no-op without authentication as then only simple fields are returned.
owned boolean no Limit by projects explicitly owned by the current user
membership boolean no Limit by projects that the current user is a member of
starred boolean no Limit by projects starred by the current user
statistics boolean no Include project statistics
with_custom_attributes boolean no Include custom attributes in response (admins only)
