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.

  1. Add Fisheye integration to Project Services

    Add Fisheye integration to Project Services so that pushes to GitLab server will call Fisheye to proceed with an incremental re-index of the repository.

      • Auto generated .gitignore

        GitHub has feature that when user creates repository he can pick what .gitignore file he want add. It would be nice if GitLab also can do that but I have one improvement - there should be checkboxes so user can pick for example JetBrains tool and python or Visual Studio and C++ and .gitignore will generate despite on picked options. This will be very helpful for projects which uses more then one language

        • Make user public keys visible on their GitLab profile page

          Because GitLab stores user's ssh key, is probably the best place to find someone public key when you have to give him access to a specific machine.

          Still this is not possible right now because GitLab does not display user's keys on their profile pages.

          The public keys are named public for a reason, as they are supposed to be public, make them public, so anyone can see them and copy/paste them.

              • 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.

                • Trigger web hooks when using the respective web interface features

                  When defining web hooks for a specific action like tag push events, the web hook doesn't get triggered when creating a tag in the web interface.

                  This isn't exactly a "push", but does the same thing.
                  In my opinion, web interface actions matching the event(s) of a web hook should also trigger web hooks.

                        • Allow filtering on issue/merge request author/creator

                          Who created the issue is a very important metric.

                          GitLab allows only to filter by created by me, not by arbitrary users.

                          Implement this for issues and merge requests.

                            I want additional status for issues in git lab. For example, "work in progress".. It will be useful to track what are the issues currently in working phase. Also i want an option to revert back the status from work in progress to open..

                              • Show related commits on outdated diffs

                                When reviewing a merge request, diffs often get outdated and they are shown collapsed in the "disucssions" tab.

                                It would be nice if gitlab could automatically show which commits have made the diff outdated.

                                Following up on review comments will then become much easier. Both the original reviewer and subsequent reviewers will be able to see which commits are addressing a review comment and check if it has been addressed or not.

                                • Request access procedure

                                  Normally the procedure for getting access to a repo. involves mailing the Owner(s) or creating a Ticket.

                                  We have found this to be slow and sometime people are not accessible, also it doesn't provide a good Audit trail.

                                  It would be preferable to have a workflow where you inside the tool can request access, like:

                                  $ ssh git@gitlab request <repo> <role>

                                  This then notifies the Owner(s) that can Grant this request.

                                  $ ssh git@gitlab [grant|reject] <request id>

                                  The advantage of this approach is that it better model's how permission's get assigned and it provides an Audit trail inside the tool.

                                    • On the merge request and issue dashboard, there should be filter for 'mentioned'

                                      http://gitlab.com/dashboard/merge_requests

                                      There is already a filter for:

                                      Assigned by me
                                      Created by me
                                      Everyone's

                                      There should be another filter added, which is 'Mentioned in' that shows the merge requests that user is involved in.

                                      Same thing in issue dashboard.

                                      • Add the ability to sort results when calling API for "/projects"

                                        I think it is a good idea to pass a `params[:sort]` to the `projects` API call, so that we can choose how the results are delivered.

                                        • Provide URL within Email Push Notifications

                                          The notification emails gitlab sends out when other users push are great. However, it would be nice to have a URL we can click from the email that opens the commit. The commit hash is already in the email, so some http:// action would be nice
