Configure GitLab Enterprise connector

The Snow Integration Connector for GitLab Enterprise is used to determine the number of registered GitLab users.

The configuration must be started and prepared according to SaaS connector configuration.


A GitLab Enterprise user account is required to connect to the GitLab Enterprise API, extract the number of users and their last login date. The GitLab Enterprise user account must have the role Administrator with read permission for the user scope, to be able to connect to the GitLab Enterprise API and extract user data. The GitLab Enterprise connector supports both cloud and self-hosted instances of GitLab Enterprise.
