Authorise access to the GitLab API

When creating a new dashboard, you'll be asked to provide the URL to your GitLab instance and your personal API key. 

To authorise access to the GitLab API, you need to provide the base URL of your GitLab instance. If you're a GitLab.com user, the base URL is https://gitlab.com .

If you're hosting your own GitLab instance, the base URL depends on your domain configuration so you may need to consult your GitLab admin in case you're unsure (although it's ok to use a trial and error too. If you enter incorrect URL you'll just get an error message). 

In both cases you need to create a personal access token and provide it to Screenful. 

After authorising Screenful to access the GitLab API you’re all set to create dashboards!
