Multiple gitlab runner with same tag

Problem to solve

Hello every one, we’ve used Gitlab runner to build us system. Currently, the number of jobs I have is increasing rapidly so the current number of runners is not enough, so I plan to increase the number of runners. I looked at the solutions and I see a pretty good idea being applied to gitlab, I see the runners here all have the same tag, /pipelines. I looked for instructions on how to do this, but I couldn’t find any. Can I use multiple gitlab-runners under the same tag?

Please select whether options apply, and add the version information.


  • [ x ] GitLab : GitLab Enterprise Edition 16.10.0-pre
  • [ x ] Self-hosted Runners

Thanks for taking the time to be thorough in your request, it really helps! :blush:


Yes. You can have as many runners as you want with the same tag. This can be specified during registration, or later edited via UI (or directly in config.toml). See Configuring runners | GitLab
