To access the repositories administration, click on Admin in the navigation bar, and choose Repositories.

There are 2 types of repository: the ones where you download and compile the sources, and the others where you download an already-compiled project

Repositories table

To create a repository, click on the Create button. You can edit the repository by clicking on the icon and delete them using the checkboxes on the table’s right part.


Repository creation
  • Name: the name that will appear on the repositories table.
  • Team: set if the repository is global or owned by a team
  • Repository Type: the desired type of your repository

Sources Repository

Choose Build from sources as repository type if you wish that FrontLine fetch and compile the sources of your Gatling simulation. In this page, you’ll configure how to fetch the sources.

Sources Repository creation

There are 3 different ways to retrieve your sources:

  • Clone a Git repository: If you want to clone a git repository. You’ll need to fill in the URL of the targeted repository, and the targeted git branch or tag (which can be overridden in the simulation configuration). If you’re using ssh authentication, you can also fill in a previously added «privateKey, private key» scoped on repository with Git SSH key. If you’re using HTTPS authentication, you can setup an username and password.
  • Use a project on FrontLine’s filesystem: Use a project located on FrontLine’s filesystem, fill in the path to project repository.
  • Check out from Source Code Control System: Useful if you’re using a code control system other than Git, or if you need a really specific Git command.

Binary Repository

Choose Download from a binary repository if you already compiled your project and pushed to a binary repository.
