Gitlab: Switching to Access Tokens with Your Repos
If you haven't yet switch to using Access Tokens for your repo clone. Enable your Two-Factor Authentication and create an access token under your profile. I've done this with my gitlab and keep forgetting the quick way to update the path/command.
Now switching your remote url for your git is simple. Using this command..
- Go to https:///YOURGITLAB.com/profile/two_factor_auth
- Then go to https:///YOURGITLAB.com/profile/personal_access_tokens
- create a token with the api setting.
If you have multiple origin urls you might have to remove them and add back an origin upstream and reset the origin master as the default upstream. This doesn't normally happen but I had a unique case where I had multiple urls for the origin where I was pushing to multiple repos for the same code. This probably won't be your case but I figure I might add this bit in.
git remote set-url origin http://USER:TOKEN@YOURGITLAB.com/repo.git
