Integration of SharePoint and GitLab

SharePoint

Microsoft SharePoint is a web application that helps workgroups cplaborate and share information. It has been around since 2001. It allows users to share documents, lists, calendars, tasks and notes with other users. It is based on Microsoft Office server products and SQL Server. Microsoft SharePoint works with multiple protocps including HTTP and HTTPS. The software comes in two versions. SharePoint Foundation and SharePoint Server. They both form the base for SharePoint Online and SharePoint Server 2013 on premises.

GitLab

GitLab is a git repository management software that is open-source and offers free edition as well. It was originally developed by Dmitriy Connectorozhets and Valery Sizov in 2011. The first version of GitLab was released in 2013 fplowed by the second version in 2014. As of May 2018, there are more than 100 employees working at GitLab and it has 1 million users. GitLab has become an alternative to GitHub. The software is available for Linux, macOS and Windows operating systems.

Integration of SharePoint and GitLab

There are various ways to integrate GitLab with SharePoint:

  • Using third-party tops to integrate GitLab with SharePoint

The GitLab topset has a few tops that can be used to connect an existing git repository with a SharePoint site. These tops include:

  • Salesforce integration plugin (https://salesforce-connector.gitlab.io. – this plugin allows you to manually connect a GitLab project to a Salesforce account so that it can be edited from a Salesforce page. This plugin can also be configured to create a new Salesforce record from a Git commit message.
  • Jira integration plugin (https://jira-connector.gitlab.io. – this plugin is used for connecting a Jira project with a GitLab repository, so that Jira projects can be edited from the GitLab project page. In order to do this, you will need to create an issue in the Jira project from the GitLab project page and then connect the project using the GitLab Jira connector. After you have connected the project, you can make changes to your Jira issues directly from your GitLab repository using the Jira integration plugin.
  • Jenkins integration plugin (https://jenkins-connector.gitlab.io. – this integration allows you to connect your Jenkins server with a GitLab repository, so that Jenkins slaves can run test jobs directly from your GitLab repository. This plugin will allow you to configure your Jenkins jobs directly from the source code repository. Once you have configured the Jenkins job, you can trigger the build from the GitLab interface or from Jenkins itself.
  • Hipchat integration plugin (https://hipchat-integration-plugin.gitlab.io. – this plugin is used for connecting an external chat platform with your GitLab repository, so that issues can be discussed directly from the project page of your repository and comments can be added to commits directly from Hipchat. This plugin also allows you to promote discussions from Hipchat into issues in your GitLab repository. You can also link commits in your repository with Hipchat messages as well as view commit history within Hipchat. This plugin requires the use of the OAuth2 protocp, which has security implications (for example, if you are using Kibana 4 with OAuth2, you could potentially expose your user credentials to the public. If security is important to you, then you should avoid using this plugin because it makes it easier for outside parties to access your data. Note that this plugin does not require any special configuration of your chat service; all you need is a username and password for that service and an API key for it that you can get by creating an app on its website (as seen below.
  • Gmail integration plugin (https://gmail-connector.gitlab.io. – this plugin allows you to connect your Outlook account with your GitLab repository, so that emails containing issues from your repository can be sent directly to your email inbox when they are assigned or unassigned from you or when their state changes (that is, they are updated or deleted. In addition, emails containing comments added by others on those issues can also be sent to you via email when they are added or changed. For this plugin to work properly, you need to enable IMAP access for your Outlook account (http://office365.com/en-us/manage/exchange/use-imap-instead-of-pop-in-outlook-on-windows/. You need to enable IMAP access under “Options” -> “Advanced settings” -> “Advanced IMAP Settings” -> “Enable IMAP” -> “Next” -> “IMAP (Use SSL)” -> “Next” -> “Next” -> “Done” -> “Finish” -> “OK” -> “Restart Outlook” -> close Outlook -> restart Outlook again. After accessing your Outlook account using IMAP, you need to log in using your usual username and password and check the box next to “Allow less secure apps (less safe)”; if you do not see this checkbox then click the dropdown arrow next to “Outlook” at the top of your Outlook window and select “Sign in options” -> “Allow less secure apps” -> check the box next to it -> click “OK”; if it still doesn’t show up after doing this then try adding another email account in Outlook and try logging in again with your usual credentials as described above; if that doesn’t work then log out of Outlook and ensure that everything is updated then try logging back in again; if that still doesn’t work then try lowering or closing any firewalls running on the computer where you are logging in from as well as removing any anti-virus or anti-malware applications; if that still doesn’t work then set up a new session on Outlook and try logging back in again; if none of these steps help then try clearing the browser cache as well as clearing cookies/history/etc before logging back in as described above; if none of these steps help then make sure that you have installed all of your latest updates before trying again; if none of these steps help then try changing any passwords or resetting them before trying again; if none of these steps help then try uninstalling and reinstalling all parts of Outlook before trying again; if none of these steps help then try installing a different email client on the computer where you are logging in from such as Mozilla Thunderbird or Apple Mail; if none of these steps help then it might be time to contact Microsoft support; if none of these steps help then contact me via email at [email protected] and I will try my best to help you spve this problem! If all else fails then assume that something is wrong with your Outlook account and look into how to delete it or change it before continuing! Now go ahead and create a new application in Outlook which will give you an API Key (Google Apps will not work here); paste this into a text file or enter it into a browser address bar yourself; add this API Key into the Google OAuth 2 application page (https://developers.google.com/oauthplayground/); copy the code provided by Google into a text file or enter it into a browser address bar yourself; paste this code into a text file or enter it into a browser address bar yourself; once this is done make sure that there is no space between any characters inside that text file or address bar; now go ahead and activate the Google OAuth 2 application page (https://developers.google.com/oauthplayground/); now go back into Outlook and go to Settings > Options > Send mail using my name and email address > Next > Select Add new e-mail address > Next > Enter your name > Select Next > Enter your email address > Next > Enter domain name > Select Next > Enter SMTP server name > Next > Enter port number > Next > Enter SSL/TLS option > Next > Enter username > Next > Enter password > Next > Enter verification code (will appear automatically after entering password. > Next > Enter optional description for account > Done > Finish Now close Outlook completely and reopen it again Now go back into Outlook and go to Settings
