How to enable registry on hosted gitlab


We are currently migrating from a self-hosted GitLab instance to a globally hosted GitLab group. Moving repositories and groups is easy enough, but we’re now struggling with the container registry.

I am trying to:

  1. Enable the container registry for our account

  2. Set up our projects to use this registry

So far I’m stuck at 1. I tried following this guide but this only seems to apply to self-hosted gitlab instances (either from source or using Omnibus, neither of which seems to apply to our situation).

My question: How do I enable the container registry for globally hosted gitlab instances?

Thanks in advance.

@lennart Are you referring to Or are you referring to another GitLab instance that you will no longer have admin access to?
