GitLab API

GitLab is a web-based open source Git repository manager with wiki and issue tracking features and built-in CI/CD.

Use the GitLab Connector

Add the gitlab connector on your Zenaton dashboard,
enter the credentials and authorize Zenaton to call the gitlab API from your workflows.
Then add code snippet and URL path to your workflow.

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");

module.exports = workflow("MyWorkflow", function* () {
const gitlab = this.connector(
'gitlab', 'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard');

const response = yield gitlab.get('path_to_API');
yield gitlab.post('path_to_API', {param1: '...'});
});

The Zenaton Engine

We handle the complexity of orchestrating GitLab API calls and related logic in your code.

Out of the Box API Call

Add the connector to your Zenaton workflow and we manage the authentication, oauth1 and oauth2 flow including token refreshing.

Automatic Retries & Alerting

If your GitLab API call fails, it can automatically be retried and you will receive an alert with error details.

Monitoring and Troubleshooting

View the Zenaton dashboard for execution history, scheduled tasks, errors and logs or retry failed GitLab API calls.

Integrate GitLab into your application logic

The Zenaton connector is a pre-configured task for calling the GitLab API inside your workflow with one line of code. Build custom integration logic by adding a workflow directly into your application using the functions in the Zenaton SDK.

// The Zenaton engine orchestrates gitlab API calls and related logic via the Zenaton agent. Every step is executed at the right moment on your servers and monitored on Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// gitlab authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("ParallelWorkflow", function* () {
  const gitlab = this.connector(
    'gitlab',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );
// execute parallel tasks handled automatically by the Zenaton engine 
  const [a, b] = yield this.run.task(["TaskA"],["TaskB"]);
  if (a > b) {
    const response = yield gitlab.get('path_to_API');
  } else {
    yield this.run.task('TaskD');
  }
});

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// gitlab authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("AsynchronousWorkflow", function* () {
  const gitlab = this.connector(
    'gitlab',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );
  this.run.task('TaskA');
  this.gitlab.post('path_to_API');
  yield run.task('TaskB');
  yield this.run.task('TaskD');
});
// Tasks can be automatically (or manually) retried and executions are displayed in real-time on the Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow, duration } = require("zenaton");

// gitlab authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("WaitWorkflow", function* () {
  const gitlab = this.connector(
    'gitlab',

  yield this.run.task('TaskA');

  );
    // Wait for up to 24 hours for the event using the Zenaton Wait Function.
    const event = yield this.wait.event("MyEvent").for(duration.hours(24));
    if (event) {
      // If event has been triggered within 24 hours
      yield this.run.task('TaskA');
