Create a new or update a GitLab Release for a repository

Synopsis

glab release create  [...] [flags]

Description

Create a new or update a GitLab Release for a repository.

If the release already exists, glab updates the release with the new info provided.

If a Git tag specified does not yet exist, the release will automatically get created from the latest state of the default branch and tagged with the specified tag name. Use --ref to override this. The ref can be a commit SHA, another tag name, or a branch name. To fetch the new tag locally after the release, do git fetch --tags origin.

To create a release from an annotated Git tag, first create one locally with Git, push the tag to GitLab, then run this command.

Developer level access to the project is required to create a release.

Options

-a,  --assets-links="" JSON
string representation of assets links (e.g. --assets-links='[{"name": "Asset1", "url":"https://<domain>/some/location/1", "link_type": "other", "filepath": "path/to/file"}]')

-m, --milestone=[] The title of each milestone the release is associated with

-n, --name="" The release name or title

-N, --notes="" The release notes/description. You can use Markdown

-F,  --notes-file="" Read release notes file

-r, --ref="" If a tag specified doesn't exist, the release is created from ref and tagged with the specified tag name. It can be a commit SHA, another tag name, or a branch name.

-D,  --released-at="" The date
when the release is/was ready. Defaults to the current datetime. Expected in ISO 8601 format (2019-03-15T08:00:00Z)

Options Inherited from Parent Commands

--help[=false] Show help for command

-R,  --repo="" Select another repository using the OWNER/REPO or GROUP/NAMESPACE/REPO
format or full URL or git URL
