We offer GitLab as a tool for distributed version management of software projects. Among other features, it has a system for continuous integration / continuous delivery (CI/CD) and many other functions. GitLab is thus an alternative to similar offerings such as GitHub and Bitbucket.

Many of these functions are controllable via an API. To use the API, more information is available at https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/api/README.html.

The service is usable by anyone with a HZB-account, no request needs to be made to use it.

GitLab can be accessed at https://gitlab.helmholtz-berlin.de/.
