Getting Started

In this section, we will be adding your GitLab token to GitPig. This will allow GitPig to make requests to the GitLab API on your behalf.

Getting your Personal Access Token

Follow the GitLab documentation for the latest approach to creating a Personal Access Token.

When creating your token, ensure that you have enabled the api scope. See GitLab's documentation for more information on scopes.
