GitLab social sign in

You can enable users to sign up and sign in using their GitLab credentials. To enable this, you’ll need some technical know-how and a GitLab app and credentials. Here’s some GitLab docs that might help.

  4. On the GitLab tile, select Configure.
  5. In the Callback URL section:
    1. If you use Kinde’s domain as your default, copy the Kinde domain URL.
    2. If you use a custom domain (and want to use it as the callback) select the Use custom domain instead switch and copy the Custom domain URL.
