Creating the webhook

  1. Go to repository Settings -> Webhooks
  2. Scroll down to see Project Hooks
  3. Check if there is a hook pointing to your DVC Studio instance:

Configuring DVC Studio with the GitLab App

Merge the values.yaml file with the following contents:

    enabled: true

    # Set this if you're hosting GitLab on a
    # custom domain
    url: ''

    clientId: <GitLab OAuth App Client ID>
    secretKey: <GitLab OAuth App Secret Key>
    webhookSecret: <GitLab Webhook Secret>

    # Optional
    # This is useful in cases where DVC Studio is on an internal
    # network, but the webhook endpoint is on an external network
    # webhookUrl: https://webhook.studio.company.com/webhook/gitlab/

Replace the strings marked with < >


GitLab Webhook didn’t get created

If there is no webhook in the repository, it is likely due to the GitLab instance settings.

By default, GitLab blocks webhook requests to local networks. To fix this, you need to whitelist your domain in GitLab:

  1. Open Admin Area in GitLab
  2. Go to Settings -> Network

studio selfhosted gitlab 4

  1. Expand the Outbound requests panel

studio selfhosted gitlab 5

  1. Select the checkbox: Allow requests to the local network from system hooks

  2. In the textbox, Local IP addresses and domain names that hooks and services may access, either write:

    • your studio domain, e.g. studio.example.com
    • IP network range, e.g.

    So if DVC Studio is configured with https://studio.example.com, write:


More examples of using the allowlist can be found in GitLab’s documentation: Create an allowlist for local requests
