Step 1 in the tutorial is to create a new Gitlab user, for use by Jenkins. I logged out of Gitlab and went to register a new user at the main Gitlab sign-in page.
I hit a roadblock because the registration requires a new email address that is not registered already. I have already registered my work and personal email addresses with my main Gitlab account.
I feel like I’m missing something or making an incorrect assumption here. Eg. Am I creating the right kind of Gitlab user? It feels like maybe I’m supposed to create a sub-user of some sort (this would also mean I wouldn’t be charged an additional $4/mo for this Jenkins user).
If anybody has any ideas or suggestions, I’d appreciate it.
