GitLab Helm Charts

This repository contains GitLab’s official Helm charts. Helm is a package manager for
Kubernetes, making it easier to deploy, upgrade, and maintain software like GitLab.
The charts are automatically published to our Helm repo, located at

This repository currently has the following charts:

Chart name Status Remark
gitlab-omnibus Beta Suitable for small deployments, will be replaced by the cloud native GitLab chart.
gitlab-runner GA Deploys the GitLab CI/CD Runner.
gitlab Deprecated Should not be used.
kubernetes-gitlab-demo Deprecated Should not be used.
auto-deploy-app Beta Used by Auto DevOps.

More information is available in our chart documentation.

Cloud Native GitLab Chart

We are building a cloud native GitLab chart in a separate repo at The goal of that work
is to replace the gitlab and gitlab-omnibus charts in this repository as well as the community supported charts. We plan
to launch the cloud native chart in this repository with the gitlab name once it is ready.

A migration will be required to move from the gitlab-omnibus chart to the cloud native GitLab chart. We plan for this to be accomplished by an upcoming backup option for the current instance and restoring on the new one.


To use the charts, the Helm tool must be installed and initialized. The best
place to start is by reviewing the Helm Quick Start Guide.

Installation instructions, including configuration options, can be found in our documentation.
