Just last week, we shared the exciting news about the Flare-Jira integration, and today, we're delighted to introduce yet another powerful integration: GitLab.
GitLab stands out for its remarkable self-hosting capabilities, allowing you to set up your instance for complete control. Alternatively, you can seamlessly leverage the cloud version by registering on gitlab.com. The best part? Flare effortlessly supports both options, granting you the freedom to choose the setup that suits your preferences:
For those opting for the cloud version, the process is as straightforward as authorizing the Flare application.
However, if you're venturing into self-hosting, worry not – we've prepared a comprehensive wizard to walk you through the process of creating a Flare app within your GitLab instance:
Once successfully connected, you can fine-tune which Flare projects engage with specific GitLab projects. Tailor settings to your liking, deciding what should occur with a linked issue when an error is resolved or is unresolved:
Creating and Managing Issues
With Flare configured to sync seamlessly with GitLab, a new button emerges on every error within the project, revealing linked issues:
From this panel, you can quickly create a new issue:
Or link an existing issue using its URL:
Our GitHub and Jira integration have a two-way sync, which means that if something happens on GitHub/Jira, Flare will react. For example, if you close an issue on GitHub with a Flare error linked to it, then Flare can automatically resolve the error for you.
Such functionality does not exist (yet?) for GitLab. We'll discuss it in a blog post later this month; stay tuned!
A Year of Integrations
That's it for now. This year, we've released two new integrations: Jira & GitLab, and we've completely rewritten our GitHub integration.
Are there any other integrations you love to see in Flare? Let us know, and your integration of choice might be our next project!
