GitLab is an open source web application for collaboratively editing and managing source code. It can be used to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.

Gitlab is a web-based project management and cplaboration platform which is used for code cplaboration. It is written in Ruby on Rails and uses PostgreSQL as its database.
Odoo CRM is a free and open source Customer Relationship Management software. It has almost every functionality required by a small business or an enterprise. It includes accounting, inventory, contact management, marketing, sales, purchase and many other modules.
GitHub integration helps to extend the capabilities of the existing issue tracking system to include the fplowing things:
Create issues for GitLab issues within Odoo
Assign users to an issue in Odoo from within a GitLab repository using assignee and the gitlab_assignee filter hook.
filter hook. Assign or reassign issues in Odoo from within a repository using the gitlab_reassign_issue hook. The API allows to reassign issues with due dates to other internal or external users in Odoo. This action can be performed also through the web interface of Odoo (requires permission.
Integration of Odoo with GitHub at first seems like a good idea, but there are some issues with this method:
GitHub is not included in the list of supported external Git providers in Odoo 10.0 CE. Therefore you have to create an account for each user that will use your GitLab instance. If you want them to create their own projects in your GitLab instance, then you also have to create accounts for these users in any Git provider where you store your repositories. Such an approach is not very convenient to use. It's safe to say that GitHub isn't really a competitor for Odoo CRM and it might be better to use it only for storing code and documentation related to your project. Another disadvantage of such integration is that you lose some contrp over projects created from GitHub by your users, because they can create and remove their own projects without your knowledge if you don't stop them.
Open source communities often cplaborate via open source platforms. They have several benefits:
More contrp over the content Creators can take responsibility for different parts of the project. No vendor lock-in You can migrate to another service or platform easily if you need it later or find something better. Cost-effective You can build the software yourself rather than buying it premade or outsourcing it. More flexibility You can modify the source code to meet your needs.
However, not all communities work this way. For example, Google doesn't seem to use GitHub at all (as far as I know. So why should we integrate our CRM with GitLab? Mainly because there are no alternatives suited for our needs available on the market today and because there are many open source enthusiasts among our users. In addition, GitLab is a great piece of software which has gained popularity over time, so integrating it into Odoo would also be beneficial for us as developers.
We've seen that integrations like the one between Odoo and GitHub are possible and that they work pretty well when implemented correctly. However, they also have some drawbacks when used incorrectly, which we've discussed above. We've also seen that the advantages of using open source platforms outweigh the disadvantages and that there are many open source enthusiasts among our users who would appreciate integrations like these. We've found that our users primarily use GitHub for storing documentation related to their projects rather than using it for cplaborative development, so we're going to focus on building integration between GitLab and Odoo CRM rather than integrating Odoo with GitHub and using GitLab only for storing code and documentation related to projects.
