What this article covers:

  • What is synced between GitLab and GitHub
  • What is not synced
  • GitLab-GitHub sync customization options

Collaboration between two different Git systems has never been easier! Now, with GitLab support, you can work with another organization's repos without having to request access to their entire GitHub organization (or vice versa!). Check out the guide below for what we sync, and how we sync it.

Customization options

Here are all the available options for GitHub:

Filter by label

Unito will sync all tasks and issues by default but you can customize your workflow by syncing just some of them (complete guide).

Filter by issue type

You can filter which type of issues you want to be synced between projects (Issue, Pull-Request, or both) (complete guide).

One-way sync

You can choose to sync only from GitHub to GitLab, or vice versa. Here is how it works.

Map your GitHub and GitLab users

Here is a complete article on how to sync teammates.

Sync tasks/issues already closed

Unito will automatically sync opened tasks or issues automatically. But here is how to also sync closed tasks and issues prior to the sync creation.

Add GitHub issue number to task title

Unito doesn't sync the issue number in either direction by default but you can enable that in your sync settings under the GitHub or GitLab tabs. Here is how to do it.
