General

This feature request forum allows you to submit, comment on and vote for GitLab CE/EE/CI features.

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".

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

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

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

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

  1. Feature request: plugin support in GitLab CI

    I think it would be great if GitLab CI had plugin integration (similar to Jenkins), such as Checkstyle, Code coverage and FindBugs.

    • Feature request: Starred Github repository

      Hello, a nice feature (IMHO) will be the possibility to add / import starred repository from Github to GitLab.

      Example: I've a Github account, I've starred repository, I'm migrating to GitLab, I want save my account like my repository (already implemented),watched repository and starred.. the idea is permit to see the Github repo on my GitLab starred page and iif I click It is redirect to Github, and for watched, it's clone on my instance and pull everytime.

      I don't know if you understand, in 2 words: starred mix
      (sorry for my english)

        • Remember side-by-side diff choice

          Right now when i want to review code i have to choose side-by-side diff each time i open a Merge Request because that choice is not stored/saved anywhere.

          Either store my last choice/change of viewer globally somewhere and use it on all diff views from that point on. Or let me have a config option on my account where i can specify my preferred choice.

          • Relations between issues

            Please add option to specify relations between issues. For example like Redmine does.

            Idea is very simple: Each issue can have relation to any other issue. Relations are bidirectional. And the relation may be of one of few types.

            Types of relations:
            - blocks / is blocked by
            - follows / precedes
            - related to
            - duplicate of
            - part of (subtask) / composed of

            See http://www.redmine.org/projects/redmine/wiki/RedmineIssues.

            I know it is possible to link another issue in comment, but explicit relations will allow more advanced issue processing.

            To make great use of these relations, a start date, expected duration…

              • create a functionality for user to upload files to the repository, and a functionality for user to replace the existing file

                to upload files to the repository, system should check whether same name file exist in current repository.
                to replace files to the repository, system should check whether the content of the file is changed.

                • Add usernames to Gitlab Log for Troubleshooting

                  It would be beneficial to log the username of the user who performed each action logged in production log so it would be simpler to debug and troubleshoot user issues. Currently, the only way to identify a user in the log is with client IP, but this is not the best method since it requires the user to be able to provide their IP (and people's IPs change), which not every user is savvy enough to do. Having the usernames in the log would greatly simplify this process.

                  This would also be beneficial from a security standpoint because it would…

                  • Kill processes when cancelling a build

                    When we cancel a build, the runner is running the test until the actual command ends.
                    Is it possible to kill the command on cancel?

                    When you only have on runner, is it annoying to wait until the canceled build is done to run a new build.

                      • Allow MR assignee to merge in (close) merge request without Master/Owner permission

                        The idea is that developers cannot push to protected branches but the assignees of merge requests should be able to merge them into the protected master branches.

                        Developers (permissions) shouldn't be able to push to protected branches but they should be able to merge the code that they have been assigned to check before merge (assignee of MR).
                        Allowing developers to push to protected branches will omit the whole idea with protected branches. I think this is quite simple and intuitive, isn't it?

                          • Add client IP in gitlab-shell log

                            Other log files in Gitlab log the client IP address, eg production.log. This is useful for debugging and security. Add the client IP to the gitlab-shell.log.

                            This is relatively straightforward to do. It can be obtained from ENV['SSH_CONNECTION'] the same way @origin_cmd is set from ENV['SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND'] in lib/gitlab-shell.rb and then can be included in the log message.

                              • Enable issue removal

                                We've implemented Gtilab at where I work, and love every second of it. It's a very solid and integrated solution, which helps us a lot along the way. However, there's one little thing stopping us from using Gitlab to its full potential - the issues can not be removed, only closed.

                                What do we do if the issue was opened on mistake, and we want every trace of it gone? Closing it just does not cut it - it means it is sill left in the database. And we do not want to fill our database with junk like that.

                                  • Implement GitLab-flavor MarkDown based on CommonMark

                                    Markdown is a poorly defined markup standard.
                                    Writing markdown has been a pain in the ass so far.

                                    For example, it is almost impossible to know how to properly put a code block in a nested list entry.

                                    With CommonMark, you will have no problem with nested lists.

                                    • Block accepting of merge request if it contains defects

                                      Use case: While reviewing merge request I found the defect in source code which must be fixed before merge is possible.

                                      Currently, comments that describe the defect could be easily lost among other comments. So inappropriate merge may be accepted. Things goes worth if there are several defects.

                                      Suggestion: Allow reviewer to mark comments as "defects". These defects could be marked by reviewer as "fixed" if author has fixed it. Or defects may be removed if were created by mistake. Until all defects are resolved as fixed/removed the merge request is not allowed for merge.

                                      • Common issue numbering across forks

                                        Project independent issue numbering was introduced in GitLab 6.2. It makes perfect sense for projects which are independent.

                                        However, one great feature of git that GitLab promotes as well, is forking. And forked projects are not so much independent. :)

                                        We are developing several customised applications in forks of the same base project. The project specific issue numbering causes problems if the fork and the base project has an issue with the same number. E.g. when you update a fork (merging changes from upstream):
                                        - "mentioned in" comments are posted to an irrelevant ticket
                                        - "closing #NNNN" closes an irrelevant…

                                          It would be great if there is a way to store documents in a project like PDF files for a project outside the GIT repo. I would use this feature to store testing VM's.
