Install templates in Omnibus

I am trying to install new Gitlab CI templates in a Docker-based omnibus Gitlab install. I see where the files are stored in the container but I am not finding where to install them outside of the container where they’re mounted to the proper location. Is this possible in this installation method?

Hi @kbreit

I am not sure I understand what you are trying to do.

I’m trying to somewhat replicate what Github Actions does with their marketplace. My setup has quite a few repositories with similar jobs and I’d like to consolidate them into a central one for easier maintenance and updates.

The instance template repository could be an option to add customized CI/CD templates, next to the upstream distributed ones: Instance template repository | GitLab via GitLab CI/CD Examples | GitLab

Alternatively, create a public group/project which provides all CI/CD templates, and includes are done using remote includes. Keyword reference for the `.gitlab-ci.yml` file | GitLab

I do not advise to modify the packaged CI template directory, as this can lead to problems with changes or collisions in the future.
