Summary

Running gitlab-ctl reconfigure wipes all System Console settings

Steps to reproduce

Mattermost 3.4.0 on Gitlab 8.12.4-ee

Expected behavior

Settings should persist

Observed behavior

Settings in gitlab.rb persist, but settings changed in the System Console are wiped

Hi @ntwrkguru - you’re correct, I think right now if you have changed any settings in the System Console and use gitlab-ctl reconfigure it will overwrite any changes.

We have a note about this in our documentation, but it would probably make sense to look into what it would take to get it to work properly. Would you be able to open a feature request on it?
