  • Click on the options gear icon next to GitLab in the workflow outline.
  • Choose the name of the GitLab configuration.
  • Choose the name of the GitLab project; these projects are monitored via the GitLab configuration.


  • You need to manually import an app from the Dashboard App Import widget or the Import Versions page.
