We’re migrating to self hosted Gitlab (from Bitbucket) and this morning I’ve been trying to configure this. Our repository is within a group so the git URL is like:
When I tried to set this up in Looker it seems that the group gets stripped so it’s just
firstname.lastname@example.org/company/looker-repo.git, then the git connection test gives me a deploy key auth error.
I managed to make it work by telling Looker it’s a custom git connection - this preserves the group in the URL but means we can’t use the full git integration with links to history/blame/merge requests.
Any ideas? This seems like a common situation and I’ve used an on-prem Gitlab instance with Looker before and it was working great (though I didn’t set it up!)
