How to connect GitLab repository for Azure devops CI/CD pipeline

Occasional Visitor

 

My source code is present in Gitlab repository and I want to setup a CI/CD pipeline using Azure Devops, However I don't find any option there to establish connection between Gitlab repository and Azure devops. I just want to know is there any way to achieve this.

Hello,
I found a similar issue since 2019 at https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/t/allow-using-yaml-build-pipelines-with-gitlab-repos/462...

But unfortunately, without any Microsoft response.
You need to select "Other Git" in this scenario.

But do note that inorder for DevOps to successfully clone repo you provide via a link, your repo should be publicly clonable or you need to embed username:password in your clone repo link (not advisable)

here is the steps:

 

Select Other Git. When you select other git, you will be presented with the following UI:

Next click on Add Connection.

You will be presented with a Add Service Connection dialog (see below)

In the Connection Name text box - provide a meaningful name
In Git repository URL, provide your git repo URL to clone

user name - provide a user name

password/token - generate a PAT (token) in your gitlab env and paste it here.

 

Hope this helps.
