[Feature flag] Rollout of `schema_config`
:schema_config feature flag ...
- Most appropriate slack channel to reach out to:
- Best individual to reach out to: @himkp
We added support to lint
*.gitlab-ci.yml files in the Web IDE. This feature requires sending a request to a third party website (schemastore.org) to fetch the schema. Certain on-premise customers may not want their GitLab instance to send requests to third party stores, so we have created this feature flag which is off by default on on-premise installations.
The feature flag is already on for GitLab.com. In order to enable it for all on-prem installs and remove the feature flag, we would need to host the schema file on GitLab.com or within the GitLab installation: #218473 (closed).
