GitLab Enterprise Edition

GitLab Enterprise Edition is an application to code, test, and deploy code together. It provides Git repository management with fine grained access controls, code reviews, issue tracking, activity feeds, wikis, and continuous integration.


This chart stands up a GitLab Enterprise Edition install. This includes:


  • At least 3 GB of RAM available on your cluster, in chunks of 1 GB
  • Kubernetes 1.4+ with Beta APIs enabled
  • PV provisioner support in the underlying infrastructure
  • The ability to point a DNS entry or URL at your GitLab install

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name my-release run:

$ helm install --name my-release \
    --set externalUrl= stable/gitlab-ee

Note that you must pass in externalUrl, or you’ll end up with a non-functioning release.

Tip: List all releases using helm list

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

$ helm delete my-release

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.


Refer to values.yaml for the full run-down on defaults. These are a mixture of Kubernetes and GitLab-related directives.

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example,

$ helm install --name my-release \
    --set externalUrl=,gitlabRootPassword=pass1234 \

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

$ helm install --name my-release -f values.yaml stable/gitlab-ee

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml


By default, persistence of GitLab data and configuration happens using PVCs. If you know that you’ll need a larger amount of space, make sure to look at the persistence section in values.yaml.

“If you disable persistence, the contents of your volume(s) will only last as long as the Pod does. Upgrading or changing certain settings may lead to data loss without persistence.”
