Integration of DEAR Inventory and GitLab

DEAR Inventory?

DEAR Inventory is a free software under GNU/GPLv2 license. It allows you to create a database for your hardware and software, and keep it updated easily. With the help of shell scripts and cron jobs, it can give you an automated inventory system which can be extended to your needs by using their plugin system. (https://dearinventory.org/)

  • GitLab?
  • GitLab is a web-based repository manager with wiki, issue tracking, CI/CD integration. You can find more information about GitLab at https://about.gitlab.com/product/. (https://about.gitlab.com/)

  • Integration of DEAR Inventory and GitLab
  • In this part I will describe how DEAR Inventory and GitLab could be integrated and how that could look like. I will also provide a list of pros and cons later in this section.

    1.1 Why integrate DEAR Inventory and GitLab?

    As a user of DEAR Inventory, I would like to have more information from my inventory easily available on GitLab, so I can use them for further analysis. This could help me answering questions like. what are the most used software versions in my company? Are my departments also using the same version of software? How much money do we spend on hardware or software? These questions are only some examples, but there are many other possibilities for this integration. Also, as a company, you would need this information for your internal statistics, for example, how much money do we spend on hardware or software? To answer these and other questions, you need good information and a good overview of all your data. With the integration of DEAR Inventory and GitLab, you can have this overview because you only need to enter the data once. Also, the information can be analyzed easier than if you have two sources of data. For example, you can create reports based on the summary table in DEAR Inventory and on the issues in GitLab to get all the information in one report. In addition to that, you don’t need to use another program or an Excel Sheet to get this information out of your databases.

    1.2 How to integrate DEAR Inventory and GitLab?

    There are several possibilities how to integrate DEAR Inventory and GitLab. But first, I will explain what integration means for DEAR Inventory and GitLab. Then I will explain the possibilities of integration, which will be divided into several categories. Automated Data Import; Manual Data Import; Export Data; Webhooks; Rest API; GraphQL API; Others. After that I will compare those categories against each other and evaluate them based on three criteria. Functionality; Security; Performance; I will also add some pros and cons for each category after I had evaluated them. Finally, I will make recommendations for which integration method to choose and explain why I made this recommendation.

    1.3 What does integration mean here?

    For the purpose of this article it is important to define what I mean when I talk about “integration” between DEAR Inventory and GitLab. The definition for this term in Wikipedia is “the joining together of different elements or components” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integration_(disambiguation. So that means that DEAR Inventory should be able to export its data to GitLab or vice versa through a third party top (like an app. But this is not very helpful because I am looking for a spution which does not need a third party top but has built-in features of DEAR Inventory or GitLab. So it should be more something like an automatic synchronization of DEAR Inventory and GitLab instead of an export top through a third party top. That is what I mean when talking about “integration” between DEAR Inventory and GitLab here or it will be more clear later when I talk about possibilities of integration. There are several ways how DEAR Inventory could be integrated with GitLab or vice versa, but every integration option should come with features of DEAR Inventory or GitLab.
