Dear Archi Team/users,

Has anybody already tried the collaboration framework with gitLab ? is it similar to git & supported by Archi 4.4 & collaboration plugin org.archicontribs.modelrepository_0.5.1.201904031126 .

I am trying to import a model that I have uploaded to my gitlab space:

The Url format <<https://gitlab.<hostname>/<username>/<projectname>/blob/master/<filename.archimate>
I have created my project in gitlab and created gitLab->profile-> access token for api access as password to login using Archi.

I am getting error "There was an error": <<my url>>

is there any proxy setting involved ?I can access the URL from web-browser.

Thanks in advance,

Jean-Baptiste Sarrodie


The collaboration plugin works perfectly with GitLab (and GitHub public/enterprise, and BitBucket, and most certainly a bunch of other solutions).

Your issue is related to the fact the plugin does not work on a .archimate file. You instead should open or create your model as usual and then ask the plugin to put it under collaboration. This is described here:

Note that the git repository must not be initialize, so you'll have to deleted it and recreate it (without anything inside, not even a README file).
