Adding members to existing group with distribution list, instead of individual email

I am trying to add members to an existing group with a distribution list, instead of with the login info that someone logs into their account from. I can add the DL email address, however, when i get the email to approve, it tries to log my account in, and not through the distribution list. Is this possible so that anyone apart of a particular distribution list is able to log into our gitlab project? Let me know your thoughts!

Describe your question in as much detail as possible:

  • What are you seeing, and how does it differ from what you expect to see?
  • Consider including screenshots, error messages, and/or other helpful visuals
  • What version are you on (Hint: /help) ? and are you using self-managed or
  • What troubleshooting steps have you already taken? Can you link to any docs or other resources so we know where you have been?

Thanks for taking the time to be thorough in your request, it really helps! :blush:
