Private projects

By default no configuration is required. Each user will have to authenticate with OAuth to GitLab to access the content. Therefore, each Confluence user also needs a GitLab account to see the private projects.

  1. On, navigate to User-Settings β†’ Access Token for user scoped tokens. Or project settings β†’ Access Token for project scoped tokens.

  2. Create an Access-Token:

  3. On Confluence, navigate to the Settings β†’ Include GitLab

  4. Switch the authentication method and save the token:
