Common problems

  1. I can't connect my privately hosted GitLab account to Zoho Flow.
    Zoho Flow supports only HTTPS requests over port 443. This means that your privately hosted GitLab account must be publicly accessible for Flow to connect.
  2. I get the error message "Unexpected code 403" when I try to switch on the flow.
    Make sure that your GitLab account has Master permissions for the project you're working on using the flow.
