Gitlab root user

Hi!

Maybe i just can not find the info, but is there any default root-user for gitlab?
I can not configure that instance with “administrator”.

Thank you for your help!

Hello @onomant,

the standard username for global administrator in GitLab is root. Upon first access to the newly installed GitLab app, it asks to set a password. This password is for that user. This information is also available via the GitLab app description in the App Center, after the app is installed.

Hi!

I saw this during installing the actual version of gitlab.
In my case i am not sure weather this feature was implemented, when i installed gitlab. (I think this is more than a half year ago)
But i was able to fix this…
gitlab-doku

sudo univention-app shell gitlab
gitlab-rails console -e production
user = User.where(id: 1).first

user.password = 'secret_pass'
user.password_confirmation = 'secret_pass'
user.save!

thank you for responding!
