Enable the Performance Bar via the Admin panel

GitLab Performance Bar is disabled by default. To enable it for a given group, navigate to the Admin area in Settings > Profiling - Performance Bar (/admin/application_settings).

The only required setting you need to set is the full path of the group that will be allowed to display the Performance Bar. Make sure Enable the Performance Bar is checked and hit Save to save the changes.
