Allow GitLab Access to OAuth into your GitLab account.
We never store your code or your docs on our server. Read more about our security and privacy overview.
Sign into GitLab
Select or search for the repositories
Select and connect your repository (or multiple repositories) to your Swimm workspace.
Voila! Now that you have successfully added your repositories, go create your first Swimm document.
If you don't see the repository you wish to add, Swimm doesn't have the correct permissions required and you’ll need to click the
Manage Scope button at the bottom right of the dialog box.
If you still cannot locate your repo, please reach out to us on our Community Slack Channel.
Authorizing Swimm's OAuth App

To view all authorized applications, follow GitLab's documentation.
- On the left sidebar, select your avatar.
- Select Edit profile and then select Applications.

At any time you can remove any access by selecting
How to change the order of repositories
You can change the order of repositories displayed on the left-side navigation. Hover over any repository and drag the repository using the arrow icon.
Changing the order of your repositories only affects your Swimm account and not other Swimmers.
