Manage feature flags
Starting from GitLab 9.3 we support feature flags for features in GitLab via
Flipper. You should use the
class (defined in
lib/feature.rb) in your code to get, set and list feature
During runtime you can set the values for the gates via the features API (accessible to admins only).
Starting from GitLab 9.4 we support feature groups via Flipper groups.
Feature groups must be defined statically in
lib/feature.rb (in the
.register_feature_groups method), but their implementation can obviously be
dynamic (querying the DB etc.).
Once defined in
lib/feature.rb, you will be able to activate a
feature for a given feature group via the
feature_group param of the features API
Feature flags for user applications
GitLab does not yet support the use of feature flags in deployed user applications. You can follow the progress on that in the issue on our issue tracker.
