API support for bulk user access management

API support for bulk user access management

Users with the Owner role for a group can now use the GraphQL API to change the maximum access level of non-inherited users of a group. This release brings more administrative features to users with the Owner role for groups on GitLab.com, and lays the foundation for future administrative bulk actions.

Secret Detection scans all commits in merge requests

Secret Detection scans all commits in merge requests

Due to technical limitations, GitLab Secret Detection previously scanned only the latest commit on branch pipelines.

Now, when Secret Detection runs in a merge request (MR) pipeline, it scans all of the MR’s commits so you can catch leaks made in earlier commits. This improvement builds on recently-added support for security scanning in MR pipelines, so it’s only available in the Latest version of the Secret Detection CI/CD template, not the Stable version.

You can enable this new feature now by switching to the Latest version of the Secret Detection CI/CD template. We plan to update the Stable templates with this change in GitLab 16.0.

Note that Latest templates can receive breaking changes in any release. To learn more about Stable and Latest templates, see documentation on CI/CD template versioning.

Group owners can disable 2FA for enterprise users

Group owners can disable 2FA for enterprise users

Previously, when a user lost access to their two-factor authentication (2FA), that user had to ask GitLab support to reset their 2FA. Now, group owners are able to disable 2FA for enterprise users. After a user’s 2FA is disabled, that user is prompted to set it up again.
