GitLab

With WebStorm, you can:

Manage GitLab accounts

To retrieve data from a project hosted on GitLab or share your projects, you need to log in to your GitLab account in WebStorm.

Log in to GitLab

  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+S to open the IDE settings and then select Version Control | GitLab.

  2. Click the Add button. The Log In with Access Token dialog will open:

    Log In with Access token dialog
  3. In the dialog, do one of the following:

    • If you already have a token, insert it in the Token field.

    • If you have no token, click Generate.

      In the token generation page that opens, make sure that the api and read_user scopes are selected.

      Click Create personal access token, copy the token, and paste it into the Log In with Access Token dialog window.

  4. Click Log In.

See Personal access tokens for more details on GitLab tokens.

Manage multiple GitLab accounts

You can use multiple GitLab accounts in WebStorm: for example, a personal account to work on an open-source project, and a corporate account for your main job.

  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+S to open the IDE settings and then select Version Control | GitLab.

  2. Use the add icon button to add as many accounts as you need.

  3. To set an account as the default one for the current project, select it and click the Check button.
