gitlab forbidden issue

This feature has been added by default in recent update of gitlab.
When there are number of failed login attempts while cloning or pushing files into gitlab repository, gitlab blocks UI as well as pull and push for the IP. Technically, it bans the IP.

Solution :
Disable this feature.

sudo nano /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb
Uncomment these lines.
gitlab_rails['rack_attack_git_basic_auth'] = {
'enabled' => false,
Reconfigure gitlab.
sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure
Now it will not block that ip after number of failed login attempts.
