I have a repository in GitLab that is used by our development team. On the other hand, there is a VSTS setup (at xyz.visualstudio.com) that we use to manage our scrum board.

As of today, we have to manually import the repository in VSTS every time a feature is finalized. Once the repository is imported, it does not pull the latest commits by itself.

How do I ensure that every time a developer commits code to GitLab repository, same is displayed in VSTS automatically? Am I missing something when I use "import repository" feature in VSTS?

  • I think the thing you want is a gitlab runner docs.gitlab.com/runner. They execute every time new code is pushed to the repo, you can configure them to do anything you want. – Jacob Vanus Apr 30 '18 at 15:14

First impression is that you should either choose one repository or check the API of both products to investigate whether the tools could be integrated. From a DevOps perspective, repetitive processes like this that are done manually over and over again should be automated.

I'm using https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/workflow/repository_mirroring.html#pushing-to-a-remote-repository to push everything into a repository in VSTS, easily done via access token with the right permissions.
