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. Easy FastCGI link configuration

    Ability to get rid of Unicorn HTTP server and its heaviness would be great.

    GitLab could run using FastCGI, there are several modules for Apache & lighttpd enabling easy configuration for Rails apps. For instance with lighttpd: http://redmine.lighttpd.net/projects/1/wiki/LighttpdOnRails

    I believe this GitLab configuration mode is critical for many of us running on low-memory systems (Virtual Machines, mostly).

    GitLab should provide two HTTP server configuration mode:

    Easy way (Unicorn)
    Light/trickier way (using FastCGI)

    • Simple ACL support for Wiki pages

      For example we grant to our customer Guest access to project (to be able create new issues) but we don't want to allow him to read some wiki pages with internal details.

      • Project activity feed/home filter

        Would like to see the project activity feed/home add the same filter as the Dashboard and then use a common cookie to store the filter settings.

        • Visualize open merge requests on the Network view

          It would be nice to see open merge requests on the Network view - i.e. some simulated commit shown as dotted line - with the ability to click on it and quickly jump to given merge request

            • Allow merging of branches via API

              Both via an already opened merge request or in general like Github's merge: http://developer.github.com/v3/repos/merging/#perform-a-merge

              • Convert issue and pull request links into nicer links

                When a user pastes a link to an issue or pull request the comment box should turn this into a nicer link like GitHub does. GitHub would turn the link from http://github.com/issue/111 to #111.

                  • Consistently display actual datetime as tooltip for commits

                    When viewing either the dashboard, project dashboard or profile history, it would be nice if you could see the actual datetime that the commit was made as a tooltip if you hover over a fuzzy datetime string (e.g. '3 days ago').

                    Currently this behavior already exists for the fuzzy datetime displayed when viewing an individual commit and it would help if it was applied consistently throughout the UI.

                    • Send list of files from commit in hook request

                      Right now the hooks send a lot of useful information. It would be awesome if support could be added that it lists the files from the commit also.

                      Github for example shows added/removed/modified in their hook output.

                      [originally requested by James Newton 10 months ago, then implemented by James 1 month ago, but w/ possible performance issues]

                      Performance issues can be resolved by using "unbaked" diffs within grit, which I've implemented here:

                        If I pass symlinked path to configs my hooks doesn't work properly.

                                • For protected branched add [minor] tag to bypass

                                  The protected branch concept is one of the most useful features provided by Gitlab. It in particularly comes very handy when enforcing code reviews in a team. However, I'd like if there was an option (check box) to select something like "Allow minor commits" as described below.

                                  For protected branches with this option on, when there's a push with all commits marked [minor] in the description, they will be allowed and only send a notification to the project team. Since this won't be the default behaviour, it won't change current workflows but when it's enabled it will bypass protected security…

                                  • Create "feature flagging" framework

                                    This would allow features to be introduced into the master branch of gitlab development, but only optionally turned on. This is a standard practice when developing new features in a shared code base, but could also be used as a mechanism to customize the feature set of a particular deployment.

                                    See http://blog.starter4ten.com/2012/06/feature-flagging-javascript-application.html for an example implementation

                                      • Modify tab order on issues comments so it goes to the submit button

                                        When you are commenting on an issue, it would be more 'usable' if the next tab leaves you in the submit (or preview) button instead of the 'flavoured markdown' link.
                                        Also, it could have a keyboard shortcut, I think that ctrl+enter is kind of standard

                                        • show commits behind/ahead when browsing branches (start page)

                                          The one thing I _really_ miss from Github when using Gitlab is the behind/ahead site when browsing branches (http://ex.com/project/repository).
