You can integrate your TeamRetro team with your GitLab account, and automatically publish action items as GitLab issues. To configure this integration you must be a TeamRetro Team Administrator or an Account Administrator.
Configure in TeamRetro
- Sign in to your TeamRetro account.
On the TEAM > SETTINGS > INTEGRATIONS screen, click on CONNECT next to GitLab
You will then have the option to choose between the connection type based on your needs
Proceed to enter your Access Token (and the Server URL for GitLab Self Managed connection) that you had created on your account and click on the arrow '->'. If you don't have one, then follow the steps under the 'Creating an Access Token' heading below.
If that succeeds, you'll be prompted to select the project you would like to publish your action items to
Upon a successful connection, you can test the integration by publishing an action item as a GitLab issue
Click on SAVE CHANGES and you will see that the connection was successful back on the integrations pages
Testing your integration
Back on your TEAM> HOME screen, click the publish icon and you will see PUBLISH TO GITLAB as an option. You can also publish all action items at once. After selecting, TeamRetro will create a new Issue in GitLab and display the corresponding Issue ID on the card.
Creating an Access Token
To create an access token in GitLab, click on your icon at the top right followed by 'Preferences'
Click on the 'Access Tokens' tab on the left navigation bar
Give your Access Token a name (e.g. TeamRetro or similar) and check the 'api' scope option underneath the "Select scopes" heading
Click on 'Create personal access token' at the bottom and one will be created for you. Be sure you keep record of it so it isn't lost
