We are in the process of setting up GitLab.com for our institution, which consists of students and teachers. We would like each student to have their own group in which they can create projects related to their various courses. By default, they should be the only ones to have access, in addition to the teachers. We had thought of the following structure under our main group.
A group named ‘Students’ where all the teachers are members.
Under this group, a group for each section (computer science, cyber security, engineering, …).
And finally, a group for each student in each section.
We have implemented SAML authentication, and we would like to create all the groups and assign the students via the API.
Is it possible ? Is it possible to add users in a group if they do not yet connect on gitlab ?
Is it a structure that you would recommend ?
Any feedback or advice would be nice
Thanks a lot !
