Integrating Invicti Enterprise with GitLab Issues (Issue Tracking)

This document is for:
Invicti Enterprise On-Demand, Invicti Enterprise On-Premises

The GitLab issue tracker is an advanced tool for collaboratively developing ideas, solving problems, and planning work. It can allow you, your team, and your collaborators to share and discuss proposals before, and during, their implementation. It can also be used for a variety of other purposes, customized to your needs and workflow.

This topic explains how to configure Invicti Enterprise to send a detected vulnerability to GitLab Issues.

    • From the main menu, select Issues, then All Issues
    • From the Issues page, select one or more issues you want to send.
    • Select Send To > GitLab Issues.

A pop-up is displayed, with a link to the issue you have sent to GitLab. If there is an error, this information will be displayed instead.
