I had quite a struggle trying to make it work (with latest eclipse version: 4.15) yet no success, the connector hangs on validation step..
Is it still working ? supposed to be working ... ?

It seems, you can not longer use login/password, the Gitlab-API doesn't support that. You have to use a private token, which you can create within GitLab. I use the connector version from GitHub and Eclipse 4.18.0.

Unfortunately there's an issue with due date parsing that cause query syncing to fail, at least with my Gitlab server.
Submitted by André Rothe on Wed, 2021-01-27 19:59
There is an additional Jackson module defined, called JSR310Module. It is used for the LocalDate deserialization of the "due_date" property within the GitlabIssue. But the jar file is not within the class path (missing Maven dependency) and the class GitlabAPI doesn't call new ObjectMapper().findAndRegisterModules().
So the additional mapper is not loaded and Jackson doesn't use the defined deserialization class from the annotation (within class GitlabIssue). It deserializes "due_date" to String and then it will cast or convert it to LocalDate. The latter class doesn't have a constructor with a String parameter, so an exception will be thrown.
Conclusion: the problem must be solved on GitlabAPI. With the changes above I can synchronize tasks with a "due_date".

Yes, you are right. But it is not a problem of the connector, it seems to be a problem of the GitApi or the underlying jackson-datatype-deserializer for the LocalDate datatype.

Since this plugin uses the V3 API of GitLab and this version of the API was removed in GitLab V11, the connector stopped working. I hope you can upgrade to the V4 API soon.

As just mentioned in issue #47 on github I created an update site containing a build of the scriptninja fork with an updated java-gitlab snapshot. This site is for my own purposes, but if anyone is fool enough to trust me for no reason, feel free to do so. Just add
https : / / eclipse.rompe.org/mylyn-gitlab
to your update sites, without the spaces, of course. But think twice before doing this! You don't know me.

I made it work with API V4. Check my own answer to my question in StackOverflow. Eclipse site doesn't allow me to link to it here, but search for a question named "Invalid TLS Certificate when connecting Mylyn to Gitlab issues" in StackOverflow.

This is a very good connector but it fails to get issues form a sub group repositories.

I tried to use the private token access instead of user credentials, which did not work. In Gitlab 9 setting an access token under Settings->Access Tokens with checked "api" and "read_user" should suffice, right? I'm getting a 401-Unauthorized message in the notifacation area.
But after those experiments Eclipse does not startup anymore:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.osgi 4 0 2017-06-11 08:12:25.138
!MESSAGE Application error
java.lang.Error: de.weingardt.mylyn.gitlab.core.exceptions.GitlabException: Invalid username/password/private token combination

I have the same problem with this Bug. The bad thing is, that I need to do a new install :-(
I opened a issue about that:
This plugin is unusable with eclipse oxigen

Used this Mylin connector for the first time today. It works pretty good, as far as I can tell. What I'm missing ist the option to Attach/Retrieve the Context.
Is there a reason why this feature is not implemented, or is it just because it hasn't been done yet?
Great job anyways! :-)
