Aikido requests read-only access to your GitLab group to analyze your projects. After analysis, your code is always wiped from the system.

Aikido currently only supports scanning of projects which are linked to a group. Repositories not linked to a group, but linked to just your user can currently not be scanned. If you do have personal repositories which you'd like to have scanned, we recommend to create a personal group, or transfer them to a group you own.

1. Logging in using GitLab

To get started, navigate to and log in with GitLab This will look like the screenshot below. Here, Aikido only requests access to your identity on GitLab and the associated email address.

2. Authorizing access to a group

On the next screen, you can choose to connect a real group or a sample workspace. If you choose a real organization you will be redirected back to GitLab. Once there, you can give read-only access to your projects and groups.

Once you authorize Aikido to access this information, you get redirected back to Aikido where you can choose the specific groups and projects you'd like to give access to.

3. Checking results

After granting access and validating the repositories you want to scan, Aikido will automatically start scanning. After about 1 minute, you should see the first results come in!
