GitLab (git.its.rochester.edu) is changing to AD SAML authentication on 7/21/2022
As you may have seen in @Rochester or on tech.rochester.edu, the University is moving toward using a single authentication technology. Currently, NetID and Active Directory (AD) are the most commonly used credentials for authentication services. Over the next year, all applications currently using NetID are expected to migrate from NetID to Active Directory (AD) as the means for authentication.
To this end, we will be performing maintenance on the UnivIT GitLab server at https://git.its.rochester.edu from 5:00 PM ET to 7:00 PM ET on Thursday, July 21, 2022, to migrate the service to Active Directory/SAML authentication.
After this maintenance, you will be required to use your Active Directory (AD) credentials to gain access to GitLab. Keep in mind that your AD Credentials are the same credentials you typically use to log in to a Windows computer, access the University wireless network, and for enterprise services like Microsoft 365, Workday Student, and Workday Finance. If you do not know what your AD credentials are please visit https://myidentity.rochester.edu.
Navigating to the GitLab UI, you will see a new login screen (although you are likely familiar with the login screen from other applications). At the login screen, log in with your Active Directory (AD) credentials. As a reminder, these are the same credentials used to log in to your computer.
Select the correct Domain in the drop-down:
UR Active Directory=Non-Medical Center faculty, staff, and students
URMC Active Directory=Medical Center and affiliates-faculty, staff, and students
Click Sign in.

Personal Access Tokens: https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/profile/personal_access_tokens.html
Two-factor authentication will not be necessary when cloning, pulling, or pushing repositories.
We appreciate your flexibility as we work towards streamlining the authentication process for everyone.
If you have questions or concerns about this change please reach out to UnivITWebServices@UR.Rochester.edu or the University IT Help Desk at (585) 275-2000.
