Import your projects from Gitea to GitLab with minimal effort.
Note: This requires Gitea
Since Gitea is currently not an OAuth provider, author/assignee cannot be mapped to users in your GitLab's instance. This means that the project creator (most of the times the current user that started the import process) is set as the author, but a reference on the issue about the original Gitea author is kept.
The importer will create any new namespaces (groups) if they don't exist or in the case the namespace is taken, the repository will be imported under the user's namespace that started the import process.
The importer page is visible when you create a new project.
Click on the Gitea link and the import authorization process will start.
With this method, you will perform a one-off authorization with Gitea to grant GitLab access your repositories:
you-gitea-instancewith the host of your Gitea instance).
After you've authorized access to your Gitea repositories, you will be redirected to the Gitea importer page.
From there, you can see the import statuses of your Gitea repositories.
If you want, you can import all your Gitea projects in one go by hitting Import all projects in the upper left corner.
You can also choose a different name for the project and a different namespace, if you have the privileges to do so.
