Hi, i’m trying to authenticate via gitlab workflow extension in vsCode? After:
- adding my username url : https://gitlab.com/usernamehereinput
- entering my personal access token created in my preferences
I’m getting an error that just says “request failed.”
Can anyone help?
Hi @papalove ,
When GitLab Workflow extension prompts you to put in the URL to GitLab instance, try putting in
https://gitlab.com instead of
gitlab.com/usernamehere is the URL to your user profile, that URL is not going to work for authentication purposes. You’ll want the main URL for the GitLab instance which for GitLab.com will be
Alternatively, you can try running the command
GitLab: Authenticate to GitLab.com to authenticate using OAuth.
Hey Greg! Thank you so much. That seemed to be the issue but I got this new error:
“Account for instance https://gitlab.com and user papalove already exists. The extension ignored the request to re-add it. You can remove the account with the “GitLab: Remove Account from VS Code” command and add it again.”

Hi again @papalove.
Can you verify that the personal access token you’re using was generated has the
api scope? If not, can you try it using a token with both the
api and the
If that still doesn’t work, you can try running
GitLab: Authenticate to GitLab.com in VSCode to authenticate using OAuth.
Thank you @gitlab-greg so… 1) i did have the api scope but i went ahead and created a new token with read_user 2) i tried to push got an error 3) i opened the palate and tried to connect and received the message that i’m already connected 4) i disconnected 5) i opened the palate and tried to add the account and received this error: “The provided password or token is incorrect or your account has 2FA enabled and you must use a personal access token instead of a password.” 6) Additionally i received a pop over notice that said the account was added and it reconnected the view of my commit history oh and the command
is saying: zsh: command not found: GitLab:
