Cannot view GitLab “tags” page from an imported Github repository

I imported a Github repository following the instructions here.

Everything worked as expected, however, when I attempt to view the “tags” page (e.g. git.example.com/some-namespace/my-repo-name/tags) I get the “Error 500 – We’re sorry, but something went wrong” page.

When I visit the “Commits” page (e.g. git.example.com/some-namespace/my-repo-name/commits/master) the “Tags” tab shows the right number of tags. I can even successfully filter by the tags under on “Network” page.

When I create a new project the normal way through the GitLab interface, I can view the “Tags” page no problem; it’s only with imported repositories.

Any insight would be appreciated!


  • Gitlab v6.1.0
