The DoIT GitLab instance is available to SMPH groups to host your codebase, track issues, collaborate on code, and continuously build, test, and deploy your app with built-in GitLab CI/CD. Departments within SMPH can have a folder created under the top level SMPH or SMPH (Public) folder. Individual groups or teams can have their own group folder within the department folder. Groups and projects under SMPH (Public) are visible to unauthenticated users; groups and projects under SMPH require NetID authentication.
Using git.doit.wisc.edu frees you from licensing, installing, and maintaining your own instance of Git. This instance features the Ultimate tier features of GitLab. SMPH department IT Directors can request delegated administration of groups and projects for their department.
For more information on appropriate use of the shared GitLab instance, see:
- GitLab for SMPH FAQ
- SMPH GitLab – Public, Internal, Sensitive, and Restricted Data Guidelines
- DoIT GitLab for Research
- DoIT GitLab Projects
There are several ways you can request a GitLab group for your GitLab projects:
- Ask your IT Director; they can be delegated to create GitLab groups for teams in their department;
- Email the SMPH Application Support team or submit a request through their Service Desk Ticket Portal;
- or ask the DoIT Shared Tools team.
Projects should follow the SMPH GitLab – Public, Internal, Sensitive, and Restricted Data Guidelines.
Groups and projects that need to be accessed by the public or anyone without a UW-Madison NetID will be located under the SMPH (Public) folder. Groups and projects that are internal are located under the SMPH folder.
For more information on using GitLab for research, see DoIT GitLab for Research.
The DoIT GitLab Projects document has important information on restrictions and appropriate use. In particular, projects should not exceed 2 GB in size and cannot be used to store restricted data, sensitive data, PHI or any other class of data that’s not for general consumption.
