Is there a way I can do a code (content text) search across all projects/repositories in gitlab.cern.ch?

GitHub provides a nice way to do a code search over millions of open repositories. This allows users to share an experience. Are there any plans/discussions to implement a code search engine for gitlab.cern.ch? (maybe ATLAS part only?)

git grep seems to work…

git grep is only useful for one repository though. I must admit searching across repos isn’t something I do very often, but does gitlab really not have it?

If not then I’m afraid it’s something to ask gitlab about, or perhaps CERN IT.

I would assume that this
https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/search/advanced_global_search.html
is relevant.

Seems to be ongoing


Their roadmap indicates sometime in summer I guess.
