GitLab is experiencing tremendous growth, which could not be possible without our Technology Partners. We created the Technology Partner track within the GitLab Partner Program because we value your support in delivering the best curated cloud-native solutions for our global customer base.
GitLab’s mission is “Everyone Can Contribute” and as such, we welcome all partners. Through product integrations, GitLab helps developers compile all their work into one tool that provides a single DevOps experience and can be accessed anywhere. Our program is structured to provide additional benefits to technology partners that have strong integrations driven by customer demand and are making investments in a deeper GitLab relationship.
What if I am having an issue with building my integration? We're always here to help you through your efforts of integration. If there's a missing API call from our current API, or you ran into other difficulties in your development please feel free to create a new issue on the GitLab issue tracker and ping @gitlab-org/ecosystem-team.
What else can I do while I am building my integration? While working on your integration, feel free to communicate with your partner manager via the issue you've created to keep us updated on your progress.
The Alliances team manages new partner requests and will review the information. We will reach out to you with an update on the status of the application or a request for additional information. If you have any questions about the status of your request, please reach out to the Alliances team.
Once you have completed Step 1, you can now work on Step 2!
Once you have created the Merge Request, the Alliances team will be notified and will review the information. If the requirements are met and the listing is ready for approval, the Alliances team will approve the MR to get your app listed on our website.
All new Technology Partners will receive the following marketing support:
As a GitLab Technology Partner, inform your partner manager once you have identified any deals, joint opportunities, and/or mutual customers to discuss additional marketing support.
For GTM activities, it’s imperative that we are aligned on the joint value proposition of the partnership. By identifying specific use cases and target personas, we can enable our sellers to articulate the joint solution in the field.
Please complete this form to provide an overview of the integration and technology partnership if you are interested in GTM activities.
We are here to help. The Alliance team works from issues and issue boards. If you are needing our assistance with any project, please open an issue and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can! When creating an issue, please select New_Partner issue template in the drop down. If it’s technical assistance you’re looking for, please see below for troubleshooting.
We also encourage our partners to participate in the GitLab community, for example: contributing to GitLab FOSS, hosting a GitLab Virtual Meetup, participating in GitLab Heroes, or engaging the community in other ways. Partners are welcome to bring questions or ideas around growing our communities directly to our Community Relations team via email@example.com.
If you’re looking for a home or an entrypoint for your joint solution on Gitlab.com, you can request a GitLab subgroup within our Alliance group here. Please submit an issue here using the template New Subgroup Request. The partner subgroup will be created as private until the prerequisites are filled out. See issue template for more details.
GitLab.com and GitLab Ultimate share the same core code base. If you’re looking to quickly test and integrate with GitLab, often a project on GitLab.com can be the quickest way to get started. We’re happy to provision you a private sandbox subgroup in our Alliances GitLab.com Group where you can create projects for demo, R&D, and testing purposes. To make the project/sandbox public to share with external parties outside of GitLab and Partner, we request you first complete the ReadMe.md file in your Public Project Repository. Here is an example. Also, it’s highly recommended to maintain a demo project as well for interested external parties.
We are able to issue Ultimate licenses for partners that are developing and testing their integration with GitLab. These licenses are only open to those working on a GitLab Ultimate specific integration. Licenses will be issued for 6 months and for up to 10 users upon request. Please reach out to your Partner Manager or add it as a comment in the following issue template.
