Compliance features

You can configure the following GitLab features to help ensure that your GitLab instance meets common compliance standards. Click a feature name for further documentation.

GitLab’s security features may also help you meet relevant compliance standards.

Feature GitLab tier
Restrict SSH Keys
Control the technology and key length of SSH keys used to access GitLab
Granular user roles and flexible permissions
Manage access and permissions with five different user roles and settings for external users. Set permissions according to people’s role, rather than either read or write access to a repository. Don’t share the source code with people that only need access to the issue tracker.
Enforce TOS acceptance
Enforce your users accepting new terms of service by blocking GitLab traffic.
Email all users of a project, group, or entire server
An admin can email groups of users based on project or group membership, or email everyone using the GitLab instance. This is great for scheduled maintenance or upgrades.
Omnibus package supports log forwarding
Forward your logs to a central system.
Lock project membership to group
Group owners can prevent new members from being added to projects within a group.
LDAP group sync
GitLab Enterprise Edition gives admins the ability to automatically sync groups and manage SSH keys, permissions, and authentication, so you can focus on building your product, not configuring your tools.
LDAP group sync filters
GitLab Enterprise Edition Premium gives more flexibility to synchronize with LDAP based on filters, meaning you can leverage LDAP attributes to map GitLab permissions.
Audit logs
To maintain the integrity of your code, GitLab Enterprise Edition Premium gives admins the ability to view any modifications made within the GitLab server in an advanced audit log system, so you can control, analyze, and track every change.
Auditor users
Auditor users are users who are given read-only access to all projects, groups, and other resources on the GitLab instance.
Credentials inventory
With a credentials inventory, GitLab administrators can keep track of the credentials used by all of the users in their GitLab instance.
Separation of Duties using Protected branches and custom CI Configuration Paths
GitLab Silver and Premium users can leverage GitLab’s cross-project YAML configuration’s to define deployers of code and developers of code. View the Separation of Duties Deploy Project and Separation of Duties Project to see how to use this set up to define these roles.
