GitLab connector was implemented for 9.5.0 version of GitLab server. Connector contains basic functionality. This connector was implementing for branch update-delta-op of midPoint 3.5 and for branch update-delta-op of ConnId.
ConnId 18.104.22.168-SNAPSHOT (branch update-delta-op)
Capabilities and Features
Native attribute names
The connector itself is available under the terms of Apache License 2.0. To our best knowledge there is no extra license needed to use this connector. (Additional licensing terms and conditions may apply with services on which the connector is used).
During creating of this connector were detecting some limitations:
the filters “EndsWithFilter”, “StartsWithFilter”, “AndFilter”, “OrFilter” and “NotFilter” are not supported
avatars are supported only for inbound (are not supported for outbound)
GitLab connector uses “PRIVATE-TOKEN” of server administrator for authentication to GitLab server. You can obtain “PRIVATE-TOKEN” via setting of administrator user in GUI after login.
Mandatory property fields:
Sample configuration values:
Private Token: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (Token from GitLab)
GitLab endpoint: myGitLabServer.com (OR 22.214.171.124:8085)
Setting up tests
The test package consists of several classes with the test methods. Before tests start is needed to enter some mandatory parameters to property file. This property file is located within the connector source bundle in the connector-gitlab-rest git repository in the “testProperties” folder.
The property file consists of two attribute name/value pairs.
“privateToken” represents PRIVATE_TOKEN of administrator from GitLab server, where you will work.
“loginUrl” represents URL address of GitLab server, where you will be work.
More objects, which names have to be specific, are used during execution. Following objects names are used for testing:
for users as username:
for groups as name:
Name testGroupPer(0-499) Update
for projects as name:
Battle of Bastards
Attack on Casterly Rock
Attack on Casterly Rock _.-
Attack on Highgarden ľščťžýáíéôúňä
Name testProjectPer(0-499) Update
If any objects remain on GitLab server after testing, we can use method deleteUsedObject() which is located in class BasicFunctionForTests.java (whole class address is connector-gitlab-rest/src/test/java/com/evolveum/polygon/connector/gitlab/rest/BasicFunctionForTests.java).
