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

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:

  1. Support running gitlab in a subdirectory with omnibus

    It would be nice if `external_url` would allow a path specification, because then you could install gitlab omnibus along other applications on the same server without using multiple subdomains.

      • Create a leaner package for power users

        The current Omnibus package is fantastic for getting users up and running. Some users, however, feel that the Omnibus package is too bloated. For example, if the user wants to use their own Postgres or Nginx/Apache they would rather not have those dependencies brought in with the package.

        Consider creating a 'bare' GitLab Omnibus package which only includes Ruby/Gems plus GitLab source. Let users include their own database and web server.

        • Markdown support flowchart and sequence diagram

          Flow chart and sequence diagram are good ideas to communicate between developers, but not supported in GitLab so far.

            • Provide omnibus packages for release candidates

              Our pattern over the past few minor version releases has been to wait until the first patch release before installing on our production server. We would be willing and able to do actual pre-release testing in our testing environment if the release candidates were available as omnibus downloads.

              • Allow the creation of global deploy keys

                I would like true global deploy keys added to Gitlab, as in I add a deploy key from the administrative settings UI, and then I can use that key for any current or future project in any group in Gitlab with no further interaction.

                My use case for such a function is to enable build servers to read projects.

                I've previously seen this described as bad security. It is not bad security, rather it is granting an appropriate channel for users to accomplish a goal that many are currently trying to work around by creating dummy user accounts. There is…

                • Ability to customize nginx.conf

                  Source https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/omnibus-gitlab/issues/268

                  Please add a config option to add custom configuration to nginx.conf similar to nginx['custom_gitlab_server_config']. But instead of inserting in the server definition in gitlab-http.conf add it to nginx.conf.

                  • shibboleth support in omnibus-gitlab package

                    It would be great if you could add omniauth-shibboleth gem into omnibus-gitlab package.
                    Shibboleth support can be currently easily enabled via /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb. Only piece that's missing is omniauth-shibboleth gem.

                      • Debian Install - FQDN Error Typo in Configuration File

                        Hello Team,

                        It appears that there is an error / missing character in the published .deb file as downloaded in your installation steps located; https://about.gitlab.com/downloads/
                        (Selecting Debian 7)

                        Upon the download, and other steps followed; an error is produced during the final configuration;
                        'sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure'

                        Runtime Error Message:
                        External URL must include a FQDN

                        Editing the file '/etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb', I found there was no '=' assignment on the external URL assignment.

                        Modifying this line to include the '=' assignment fixed this issue.

                            It would be nice to be able to easily add nginx status when installing with omnibus.

                            The required snippet of nginx.conf should be something like:

                            location /_status {
                            stub_status on;

                                          at
                                          https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/omnibus-gitlab/blob/master/doc/settings/nginx.md
                                          it says to use gitlab-ctl reconfigure to complete ssl support. But if you happen to screw up your cert-- for example, forgetting to 'cat' the intermediates into it-- you must also do gitlab-ctl restart to get the revised cert to take effect.

                                          It's not obvious that gitlab-ctl reconfigure doesn't also restart everything, and gitlab-ctl doesn't have a 'man' file. So it'd be nice to put a note under the ssl section that you should do a 'restart' if you need to revise the cert/key/etc. (And by 'nice', I mean 'would have saved me an hour and a half.)
