The GitLab integration allows you to connect both Cloud & Self-Managed types of GitLab instances.

For GitLab self-managed instances, please see Connecting Vanta & GitLab Self-Managed instance.

 

Gitlab Cloud allows customers to connect tools like Vanta using OAuth. By connecting your GitLab Cloud account with Vanta, Vanta is able to make API calls as the connecting user, allowing you automates the collection of evidence for your code repository configurations, pull request workflows, and security issue tracking.
