Deprecated Feedback Forum

This is a deprecated feature request forum for GitLab CE/EE/CI features. As you can now vote on issues in GitLab, we’re moving the feature requests to the same project as we’re doing development in. This should make the step from request to development smaller and faster.

GitLab CE & CI feature requests

To submit a feature request for GitLab CE (including CI), please search and vote for or create an issue in the GitLab-CE project on GitLab.com: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues

GitLab EE feature requests

To submit a feature request for GitLab EE, please search and vote for or create an issue in the GitLab EE project on GitLab.com: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ee/issues

I don’t see my feature request on GitLab.com

If you don’t see your feature request on GitLab.com, feel free to create an issue on the issue tracker in the appropriate project and place a comment here to link it for everyone. Alternatively, most popular feature requests will have their issue linked from here in time.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    • Incremental backup

      Need solution to make incremental backups.

      • Assign multiple users to one issue

        Sometimes when an issue arrises it takes more than one user to close the issue. This normally happens when a designer and a developer are needed on the same thing.

        EX: User A needs to come up with hex codes for colors, and user B needs to implement how the colors are being used.

        I know this normally would be something a project management tool would do, but if GitLab could at least assign the task to multiple users that would be great.

        • Add Protected Branch granular push/merge permissions

          Hello,

          We could really use some more granular permissions on protected branches.

          Particularly being able to grant a group the ability to "Push to THIS protected branch".

          For example all of the application development team can push changes into the development branch but they cannot push into the production branch. Only application development leads and the manager can merge into the production branch.

          To do that we need to allow "Developers" the ability to push into a specific protected branch. A simple checkbox in the protected branch screen that said "Allow Developers to push to this protected branch" would be…

          • GitLab Flavoured Markdown: render UML diagrams by adding 'Syntax Highlightning' for PlantUML

            Taken from https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlabhq/issues/9550, but this is just what I need:

            "
            now

            there is syntax highlightning for some languages (Ruby, Python, etc.) using

            • fix markdown PHP syntax highlighting

              Doesn't work unless you add the opening PHP tag, e.g.

              ```php
              $this->rubbishHighlighting();
              ```

              ```php
              <?php
              $this->properHighlighting();
              ```

              Seems a bit daft to have to put that in - it should highlight it as PHP regardless.

                • Wiki updates show up in RSS and activity stream

                  * Any creations/edits made by a team member on a project's Wiki are headlined on the project's dashboard as well as the RSS feed.

                  This feature will help team members know when wiki pages have been created or modified. People often rely on peer-review of their documentation to ensure correctness, but at the moment there is no automatic way of informing the team anything has changed.

                  • Add lolcommits integration

                    lolcommits is a git post commit hook that takes a picture of you from your computer camera.
                    The idea is to publish those images next to each commit shown in gitlab

                    • Option to compare specific files/directories in the compare view

                      The "Compare" tab now enables us to compare different revisions in the entire repository, but sometimes we need to compare only sub-directories or files.

                      Can you add the option to compare the revisions of a specific file/directory between different revisions/branches?

                        At the moment if one click on a commit will see details such as: parent commit, amount of additions, deletions, but will not see if this commit has Tag linked to it.

                        Showing branch, tag details will give better overview about the commit

                        Link them with appropriate pages.

                          Currently when comparing a docx file you receive the message "No preview for this file type" however GitHub supports this format. Would like to see GitLab support it as well.

                          • YAML front matter support

                            Would be very nice if Gitlab could support YAML front matter in a markdown file (like used by Jekyll), displaying it as a table, like Github does. And have an easy way to edit it (add new field, edit field, remove field), would also be very nice.

                              This will prevent them from being public until reviewed?
                              Public projects will be faced with the issue, that security stuff is disclosed publicly. One thing Github still doesn't offer.

                                • Enable git use of mailmap files for mapping user identities

                                  Git uses .mailmap files to map cannonical usernames and email addresses to alternate names and/or emails. Because a user can submit with different names on different computers (work, home, mobile, etc), these can create multiple user names in history, graphs, etc.

                                  Mailmap files bring these together so they show up under one name again. This is partially supported through 'other emails' for a user in the UI, but tracking that over time or entering a large number in the UI is tedious.

                                  • two-factor authentication with Yubikey

                                    Implement a two-factor authentication mechanism with Yubikey to create secure Gitlab instances.

                                    http://www.yubico.com/

                                    The linux kernel source code is also protected by a Yubikey by the way:

                                    • Support GIF and/or SVG as image files in the repository

                                      When browsing files in the repository, clicking on image should show the image in a view similar to how PNG and JPEG is shown https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/blob/master/public/gitlab_logo.png

                                      SVG support would be ideal to add as well, but it probably would be a bit different, as it's not as simple.

                                      • Remember selected filters

                                        After selecting filters on the issues page remember them. When a user returns to this page next time, even if they are on another computer, it should show the same selected filters. As a bonus make the address change when a user selects filters so it can be spendable. Based on https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlabhq/issues/3091

                                        • Enable users to create labels during issue creation

                                          Users should be able to create new labels during issue creation (perhaps depending on a certain project setting being set accordingly).

                                          Reason is that the categorization is sometimes subject to change, especially in complex projects. If you want to assign a newly created issue to a label that has not been created yet, you first have to create the label before you are able to finish your issue description.

                                          This causes extra work as you then have to save the issue and re-edit it to add the label reference.

                                          It should be possible to create issue labels during issue creation,…
