You can adjust your project settings by navigating to your project's homepage and clicking Settings.
Adjust your project's path and name, description, avatar, default branch, and tags:
Sharing and permissions
Add an issue description template to your project, so that every new issue will start with a custom template.
Merge request settings
Set up your project's merge request settings:
- Set up the merge request method (merge commit, fast-forward merge).
- Merge request description templates.
- Enable merge request approvals, available in GitLab Enterprise Edition Starter.

Archiving a project
Note: Only Project Owners and Admin users have the permission to archive a project
It's possible to mark a project as archived via the Project Settings. An archived project will be hidden by default in the project listings.
An archived project can be fully restored and will therefore retain it's repository and all associated resources whilst in an archived state.
Renaming a project
Note: Only Project Owners and Admin users have the permission to rename a project
It's possible to rename a project from "Rename repository" or "Transfer project" sections. When doing so, you will need to update your local repositories to point to the new location, otherwise Git operations will be rejected.
