Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I have had no problem with the stability of the solution.""The best thing is that as the developers work on separate tasks, all of the code goes there and the other team members don't have to wait on each other to finish.""We like that we can have an all-encompassing product and don't have to implement different solutions.""The most valuable features of Gitlab are integration with CIE and the ability to rapidly deploy solutions, projects, and applications. It is very easy to use, and there are no complaints.""We like that we can create branches and then the branches can be reviewed and you can mesh those branches back. You can independently work with your own branch, you don't need to really control the core of other people.""I like that it's easy to deploy our services over GitLab. The customer support is also good with a really active community. You have a lot of support that you can get online with your stack. That is probably one of the benefits of using GitLab. It's also really fast.""I like GitLab from the CI/CD perspective. It is much easier to set up CI/CD and then integrate with other tools.""GitLab is very useful for pipelines, continuous integration, and continuous deployment. It is also stable."

Cons
"The documentation could be improved to help newcomers better understand things like creating new branches.""Based on what I know so far, its integration with Kubernetes is not so good. We have to develop many things to make it work. We have to acquire third-party components to work with Kubernetes.""We would like to generate document pages from the sources.""In the free version, when a merge request is raised, there is no way to enforce certain rules. We can't enforce that this merge request must be reviewed or approved by two or three people in the team before it is pushed to the master branch. That's why we are exploring using some agents.""It would be better if there weren't any outages. There are occasions where we usually see a lot of outages using GitLab. It happens at least once a week or something like that. Whatever pipelines you're running, to check the logs, you need to have a different set of tools like Argus or something like that. If you have pipelines running on GitLab, you need a separate service deployed to view the logs, which is kind of a pain. If the logs can be used conveniently on GitLab, that would be definitely helpful. I'm not talking about the CI/CD pipelines but the back-end services and microservices deployed over GitLab. To view the logs for those microservices, you need to have separate log viewers, which is kind of a pain.""Reporting could be improved.""The solution could improve by providing more integration into the CI/CD pipeline, an autocomplete search tool, and more supporting documentation.""It could have more security integrations and the ability to check the vulnerability of the code. I don't think it is a responsibility of Gitlab, but it would be nice to have more options to integrate with."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I think that we pay approximately $100 USD per month."
  • "The price is okay."
  • "It seems reasonable. Our IT team manages the licenses."
  • "Its price is fine. It is on the cheaper side and not expensive. You have to pay additionally for GitLab CI/CD minutes. Initially, we used the free version. When we ran out of GitLab minutes, we migrated to the paid version."
  • "It is very expensive. We can't bear it now, and we have to find another solution. We have a yearly subscription in which we can increase the number of licenses, but we have to pay at the end of the year."
  • "I don't mind the price because I use the free version."

    Top Answer: 
    Good write and read files which save execution inputs and outputs and can be stored locally.
    Top Answer: 
    From an automation point of view, it should have better clarity and be more user friendly. Some aspects were difficult and therefore less useful for us, perhaps we lack the coding knowledge on that.
    Top Answer: 
    We are a large company based in India. The primary use case of this solution is for our REST architecture. Parasoft uses different languages like JSON, XML and SORBS. It's like an API testing tool and… more »
