Configure and Administer a Repository
View and edit repository properties
Under the Repository info tab, you can change the following properties:
Repository name: You can rename your repository and keep the old name as an alias.
Repository description: A short informative description that will be displayed under the repository name.
Default branch: The default branch name in Git is main. You can choose another branch to be the default one.
This setting will affect the merge request workflow.
Read-only repository: Check this option if you don't want anyone to push changes to this repository.
You can also download and view the repository push log.
View repository statistics and the last GC log
Go to the Statistics tab to view your repository and index size, number of files and git objects, and the time of the last GC execution.
To examine the last GC log, click the show log link.
Configure repository settings
Set up branch and merge restrictions to protect important branches from undesirble actions and unapproved merges.
Set up repository webhooks to send notifications when the repository is updated with new commits or its settings get changed.
