Jenkins : Gitlab Hook Plugin

Plugin Information

View Gitlab Hook on the plugin site for more information.

The current version of this plugin may not be safe to use. Please review the following warnings before use:

Enables Gitlab web hooks to be used to trigger SMC polling on Gitlab projects


For Gitlab there is an existing solution that might work for you.
You can just use the notifyCommit hook on Git plugin like this:

http://your-jenkins-server/git/notifyCommit?url=<URL of the Git repository for the Gitlab project>

But, with a large number of projects that are mostly polling (no hooks), the project might actually be built with a great delay (5 to 20 minutes).
You can find more details about notifyCommit and this issue here.

That is where this plugin comes in.
It gives you the option to use build_now or notify_commit hook, whichever suits your needs better.
