According to this, the group migration feature should be available on gitlab.com. But when I go to https://gitlab.com/groups/new#import-group-pane I only see Import Group from File, with a “This feature is deprecated” banner. On our self hosted instance (running 15.3), I see both Import from File and “Import groups from another instance of GitLab”, am I misunderstanding the docs, is this feature not available on gitlab.com, or is there a setting I need to change, or is it not avilable to free users?
Users with the Owner role on a top-level group can migrate it to… (a)nother GitLab
instance, including GitLab.com
And the “Migrating Groups” page in the documentation is marked as “All Tiers”, so this should be available as a free user. I set up a trial of the Ultimate tier just to confirm it wasn’t a tier-related issue, and this page looked exactly the same.
For a test run, I tried migrating a group from gitlab.com to my self-hosted instance (version 15.3.3), and that seemed to work fine.
I’m going to raise this question on the feedback page for this feature, hopefully that will generate some good answers.
It would be nice if toggling off a feature (even if it’s just to a subset of users) triggered a warning in the docs that it may be temporarily unavailable on .com.
OK, thanks for asking over there. Yeah, would be nice if there was a note in the docs.
