Self-Hosted GitLab

Codeac supports self-hosted Git repositories for the GitLab Community Edition.

Exposing Ports

To use your private GitLab server with Codeac, you will need a publicly reachable endpoint with port 443 open to the internet. We require port 443 to clone your repository to run our analysis and for status and clone requests.

To check that these ports are open you can run the following against your server from your local machine:


nc -v -w1 443
# => Connection to 443 port [tcp/https] succeeded!

Personal Access Tokens

To connect to your self-hosted GitLab instance, you will need to retrieve your personal access token. To fetch your token, follow these instructions:

Token Access Scopes

In order for Codeac to be allowed to setup the necessary hooks etc. the personal access tokens need to have the correct set of scopes. Below you’ll find the necessary setting for self-hosted GitLab server:

GitLab Settings

Copy the redirect URL into your GitLab Application settings.

To get your self-hosted GitLab instance up and running with Codeac, there are still a few manual steps on our side needed. Please contact us at and we will help you with the on-boarding.
