General

The forum allows you to submit, comment on and vote for GitLab (CI) features you would like to see.

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.

  1. Remote backup

    It would be nice to have an option for storing the local backups on a remote server. For example :
    1. Amazon S3
    2. Google Drive
    3. Dropbox
    4. SFTP on some remote machine

    • Add Access-Control-Allow-Origin header to HTTPS pack-protocol responses

      I would love to be able to clone a repository from my web-based environment. I've gone through the trouble to implement the git database and network protocols in pure js so I have git in the browser, but I can't actually talk to your server because you haven't enabled CORS.

      I see your server is being proxied through nginx. This makes is trivial to enable this feature.

      https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Access_control_CORS

      http://enable-cors.org/server_nginx.html

      I need to be able to request urls like https://gitlab.com/creationix/creationix.git/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack over XHR. The pack protocol involved GET and POST requests to this domain from another domain (where my app is hosted).

      • provide composer package repository support

        GitLab HQ should be more readily usable as a Composer package repository solution. By building this as a project service (akin to Hipchat or CI integration), projects can "opt-in" to be included in a generated packages.json manifest file.

        I have successfully built the core of this functionality into our install of GitLab HQ CE 6.7.5 and would like to make it available to the GitLab community.

          • 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.

            • provide squash option when merging merge requests

              Add a checkbox "Squash into one commit" below "Merge" button of a merge request. The default state of that checkbox should be configurable per instance and per project.

              The UI would ask for a commit message (defaulting to branch name) and then execute the equivalent of 'git checkout other-branch; git merge --squash this-branch; git commit -m "commit-message", close the merge request and delete the branch (if the other checkbox is ticked).

              This is a common workflow in projects and not supporting it causes a lot of confusion and extra work.

                  It would be helpful to see a representation of the languages used in a repository. Attached is a screenshot from Github.

                  • Tabs width

                    In GitLab, there is a default width for Tabs set to 8 spaces, that generally works well for web. But for developers, tabs are generally set somewhere between 3 and 4 (mostly 4).

                    It makes any code and diff uploaded to GitLab very difficult to read without manually injecting a css hack into each page which isn't user-friendly at all.

                    Please allow us (in options or in the page) to switch display value for tabs.
                    The easiest way would be a Javascript field taking an int and injecting it into a css value of: "tabs-size = $val"

                    Thanks

                    • Ability to configure Web Hooks globally

                      I'm looking for a way to set a web hook to trigger on push events for all projects in a global setting.

                      Currently i have it configured on each project separately with the 'Settings->Web hooks->Trigger->Push events' setting, but my coworkers forget to set it on new projects ;-)

                      • Send Merge Request Web Hook On Added/Changed Commits

                        It appears as though the Merge Request Web Hook doesn't get resent when new commits are added to the branch or the branch is rebased. It really should be.

                        This is a pretty huge bummer for integration with any external tools because that external tool can't keep in sync with what's happening on a MR.

                        GitHub does this... sending a new Pull Request Hook the moment the commits on a branch involved with a PR change.

                                Would like to be able to restrict what group names users can create - such as to require all user-created groups be suffixed with "-grp". The purpose is to prevent any conflicts with userids since they share a common namespace in the URI.

                                  • Allow people to view public snippets without logging in

                                    Right now snippets are called private and public but the behavior is like private and internal (user with accounts can view them only). Existing snippets should become internal and a new real public mode should be introduced. This functionality should respect the public/internal setting in gitlab.yml

                                    • When Git hook for "Commit message" fails - provide a better error message

                                      After you enable "Commit message" hook in project settings and define a regex that let's say always require you to mention #<issue number>, pushing a commit that does not correspond to this regex fails as expected, but the error message is obscure:

                                      remote: GitLab: You are not allowed to access somecode!
                                      remote: error: hook declined to update refs/heads/somecode
                                      To git@git.xxx.local:user/sandbox.git
                                      ! [remote rejected] somecode -> somecode (hook declined)
                                      error: failed to push some refs to 'git@git.xxx.local:user/sandbox.git'

                                      Therefore I'd like to see either:
                                      a) a more-descriptive error message that would display the actual regex and a commit message…

                                      • search for filename

                                        For example "main_list.java" is in my repository now i want to find them with the search. If I search after "main_list.java" Gitlab does not find the file. (It find only any temporary build files which contain the string "main_list.java".

                                        • Detect and resolve wiki conflicts

                                          When two people edit a wiki page at the same time, the last one to submit wins, currently.

                                          Instead, Gitlab should use Git to attempt a merge and if conflicts occur, present a message to the user.
