Projects API (FREE ALL)

Interact with projects by using the REST API.

Project visibility level

A project in GitLab can be private, internal, or public. The visibility level is determined by the visibility field in the project.

For details, see Project visibility.

The fields returned in responses vary based on the permissions of the authenticated user.

Removals in API v5

These attributes are deprecated, and are scheduled to be removed in v5 of the API:

Project merge method

The merge_method can use these options:

  • merge: a merge commit is created for every merge, and merging is allowed if no conflicts are present.
  • rebase_merge: a merge commit is created for every merge, but merging is only allowed if fast-forward merge is possible. You can make sure that the target branch would build after this merge request builds and merges.
  • ff: no merge commits are created and all merges are fast-forwarded. Merging is only allowed if the branch could be fast-forwarded.

List all projects

The _links.cluster_agents attribute in the response was introduced in GitLab 15.0.

Get a list of all visible projects across GitLab for the authenticated user. When accessed without authentication, only public projects with simple fields are returned.

When simple=true or the user is unauthenticated this returns something like:

Example request:

curl --request GET "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/projects"

You can filter by custom attributes with:

GET /projects?custom_attributes[key]=value&custom_attributes[other_key]=other_value

Example request:

curl --globoff --request GET "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/projects?custom_attributes[location]=Antarctica&custom_attributes[role]=Developer"

Pagination limits

In GitLab 13.0 and later, offset-based pagination is limited to 50,000 records. Keyset pagination is required to retrieve projects beyond this limit.

Keyset pagination supports only order_by=id. Other sorting options aren't available.

List user projects

The _links.cluster_agents attribute in the response introduced in GitLab 14.10.

Get a list of visible projects owned by the given user. When accessed without authentication, only public projects are returned.

Prerequisite:

  • To view certain attributes, you must be an administrator or have the Owner role for the project.

NOTE: Only the projects in the user's (specified in user_id) namespace are returned. Projects owned by the user in any group or subgroups are not returned. An empty list is returned if a profile is set to private.

This endpoint supports keyset pagination for selected order_by options.

Configure pull mirroring for a project (PREMIUM ALL)

Configure pull mirroring while creating a new project or updating an existing project using the API if the remote repository is publicly accessible or via username:token authentication. In case your HTTP repository is not publicly accessible, you can add the authentication information to the URL: https://username:token@gitlab.company.com/group/project.git, where token is a personal access token with the API scope enabled.

Attribute Type Required Description
import_url string Yes URL of remote repository being mirrored (with user:token if needed).
mirror boolean Yes Enables pull mirroring on project when set to true.
mirror_trigger_builds boolean No Trigger pipelines for mirror updates when set to true.
only_mirror_protected_branches boolean No Limits mirroring to only protected branches when set to true.
mirror_branch_regex String No Contains a regular expression. Only branches with names matching the regex are mirrored. Requires only_mirror_protected_branches to be disabled.

Example creating a project with pull mirroring:

curl --request POST --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" \
 --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
 --data '{
  "name": "new_project",
  "namespace_id": "1",
  "mirror": true,
  "import_url": "https://username:token@gitlab.example.com/group/project.git"
 }' \
 --url "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/projects/"

Example adding pull mirroring:

curl --request PUT --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" \
 --url "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/projects/:id" \
 --data "mirror=true&import_url=https://username:token@gitlab.example.com/group/project.git"

Example removing pull mirroring:

curl --request PUT --header "PRIVATE-TOKEN: <your_access_token>" \
 --url "https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/projects/:id"  \
 --data "mirror=false"
