I am trying to upload an addon to the odoo apps from a private gitlab repository. I am getting an access denied error. Could anyone tell me what I am doing wrong. I suspect I need to allow odoo user to access the repository but I cant find any leads. Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi Cyrus,

When you have a private repository Odoo needs to have read acces on the repository, otherwise it cannot access the code (and show it on the app store).
You can do this from your repository (in Github, but it should be fairly identical) by going to Settings > Collaborators & teams and by adding Odoo as a contributor with read access. 
This is the user you need to give read access: https://github.com/online-odoo


This makes sense but I cant find the odoo-online user or anything close to it on gitlab.com.

Hmm I'm not sure if this is supported out of the box. I'd suggest you to drop an email to support@odoo.com, they'll be able to help you figure this one out. :)
