Review code, discuss changes, share knowledge, and identify defects in code among distributed teams via asynchronous review and commenting. Automate, track and report code reviews.Sign up for GitLab.com
Enable your development team to collaborate, review and improve their code.
Make sure the right people review merge requests with approval rules by specifying lists of eligible approvers, the minimum number of approvals for each, and which target branches they protect. This makes it easy to request review from different teams like Engineering, UX and Product.Documentation
Code review is an essential practice of every successful project, and giving your approval once a merge request is in good shape is an important part of the review process, as it clearly communicates the ability to merge the change.Documentation
Assign Code Owners to files to indicate the team members responsible for
code in your project using a
CODEOWNERS file. Code owners are assigned
automatically as merge request approvers, can be set as required and
shown when viewing files. Sections allow each team to configure their own code owners
configuration independently, allowing multiple teams to look after common
parts of the codebase.
When reviewing a merge request that looks ready to merge but still has one or more CI/CD jobs running, you can set it to be merged automatically when the jobs pipeline succeeds with a single click. No configuration required.Documentation
Code or text review is faster and more effective with inline comments in merge requests. Leave comments and resolve discussions on specific lines of code. In GitLab, Merge Request inline comments are interpreted as a discussion and can be left on any line, changed or unchanged. You can configure your project to only accept merge requests when all discussions are resolved.Documentation
As a reviewer, it can be hard to tell at a glance if new code is covered by a test or not. Customers can now speed up their code reviews by seeing which lines of code are covered by tests in the Merge Request Diff.Documentation
Draft multiple comments in a merge request code review, before reviewing and submitting them together all at once. This allows you to review code in consistent, and self-contained sessions, instead of as individual comments.Documentation
Dashboards with a filterable set of code reviews (could be by project, by user, by branch, by status, or a combination of those). Dashboards includes code review status and links to get to them. This makes it easy to see what is going on with code reviews for a desired subset.Code review with GitLab
