Gitolite

Site admins can link and sync Git repositories on Gitolite with Sourcegraph so that users can search and navigate the repositories.

To connect Gitolite to Sourcegraph:

  1. Set up git SSH authentication for your gitolite server.
  2. Go to Site admin > Manage code hosts > Add repositories
  3. Select Gitolite.
  4. Configure the connection to Gitolite using the action buttons above the text field, and additional fields can be added using Cmd/Ctrl+Space for auto-completion. See the configuration documentation below.
  5. Press Add repositories.
