GitLab Runner is an application that works with GitLab CI/CD to run jobs in a pipeline.[1] For more information see the official GitLab Runner documentation.

Current Gitlab Runner setup (Initialization)

In WMCS there is a project gitlab-runners to host a set of shared GitLab runners. Currently the runners are installed and configured with Ansible playbook. To add runners, add the hosts to [gitlab_runners] section of 'hosts' file. Then run the Ansible Playbook for gitlab-runners. The command is wrapped in script.[2]

There are efforts to move all of the installation and configuration to puppet: T287279#7237735.
