Test the performance of your Gitlab Merge Requests

By Christophe Dujarric, on Apr 19, 2016


Gitlab is an application to code, test, and deploy code collaboratively. It provides Git repository management, code reviews, issue tracking, activity feeds, wikis, and continuous integration features.

Blackfire now supports a Gitlab integration, which enables you to automate the performance testing of your code any time you modify it. Here’s the workflow you can have:

  1. A developer in your team creates a Merge Request
  2. The Merge Request is automatically deployed
  3. Gitlab triggers Blackfire to run your scenarios
  4. Blackfire sends a notification to Gitlab that is displayed as a commit status on the corresponding Merge Request

The bottom line: never merge some code without passing performance tests!

We are thrilled to add this integration to the Enterprise Edition, and we’re looking forward to hearing how it works for you!

Get started with this integration.

Happy performance testing
