GitLab Integration

GitLab is a web-based git repository manager that lets teams collaborate on code, duplicate code to safely create and edit new projects, then merge finished code into existing projects. It also features CI/CD, wiki, code review and issue management.

What does Opsgenie offer GitLab users?

Opsgenie offers an integration with GitLab where pushes, merge requests, and issues in GitLab create alerts in Opsgenie.
