Archive a project



GitLab projects that are no longer actively used but need to be available for read access can be archived.

Only project owners and administrators have permission to archive a project. Once a project is archived, the repository, packages, issues, merge requests, and all other functions are read-only.

Archived projects are hidden in the project lists. To show them, this option must be explicitly enabled:
