Gitlab provides this method to push a new project directly to gitlab, without having to initialise it on the web-gui first. The following command works great:
git push --set-upstream firstname.lastname@example.org:username/project-name.git master
I would like to do the same thing, but iterating over all submodules inside the new project. I’m trying to get the following command with
submodule foreach to do that:
git submodule foreach --recursive 'sudo git push --set-upstream https://my.gitlab.com/namespace/$project-name.git master'
But it fails like this:
Entering 'sub-repo-1' > GitLab: The project you were looking for could not be found. fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists. Stopping at 'sub-repo-1'; script returned non-zero status.
In my use case, I have a project tree containing hundreds of submodules that I would like to push to gitlab. Eventually, I’d like to integrate that into a CI workflow, but first things first.
Any ideas why submodule foreach push-to-create doesn’t work?
