Redistributing GitLab EE docker image


I have a quick question about GitLab EE license.
I would like to include a GitLab EE docker image in a commercial product.
Is it allowed? I read GitLab EE license (,
but I am not sure. Can anyone help? Thanks so much.

Good question.


This software and associated documentation files (the “Software”) may only be
used in production, if you (and any entity that you represent) have agreed to,
and are in compliance with, the GitLab Subscription Terms of Service, available
at (the “EE Terms”), or other
agreement governing the use of the Software, as agreed by you and GitLab,
and otherwise have a valid GitLab Enterprise Edition subscription for the
correct number of user seats.


Subject to the foregoing, it is forbidden to copy, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense,
and/or sell the Software. on the other hand is licensed as MIT, and does not have the GitLab EE license restrictions on redistribution.

Thank you for your reply. If I understood your comment correctly, it is forbidden to distribute GitLab EE image without some kind of agreement between GitLab and I. Is this correct?
