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.

    • Set due dates for individual issues

      Sometimes we add issues that are independent of a milestone. An example of this type of issue would be a bug or a question. I'd like to be able to set a due date for these individual issues without having to add them to a milestone. Thanks!

      • Branded Login Page for CE

        Could you please add logo/branding to CE? What's the incentive behind restricting this to EE only?

        • Create a note when issue labels change

          It would be great to create a note each time a label is added/removed to/from an issue.

          This would be especially useful is you use the labels as `states` for the issue.

          • Better visibility on code review approval/refusal

            Gitlab Merge requests are a good tools for code review, but they could be improved.

            I suggest adding a box (such as the CI box) that shows who voted for or against a merge request.

            This would only consider the last vote from a user.

            When a MR is accepted (upvoted) by all the reviewers, this box turns green.
            As soon as there is one refusal (downvote) the box turns red.

            This allows for more visibility on the state of a merge request, as when someone changed their mind about a MR (for instace because an issue they had with…

              • Make default branch protection an option.

                As of 7.4, the default branch is protected by default. I'm sure that's great for many organisations who work that way, but now I have to unprotect the default branch every time a new project is added. I'd love to see a checkbox or setting somewhere that allows me to turn this behaviour on or off.

                • Add Protected Branch granular push/merge permissions

                  Hello,

                  We could really use some more granular permissions on protected branches.

                  Particularly being able to grant a group the ability to "Push to THIS protected branch".

                  For example all of the application development team can push changes into the development branch but they cannot push into the production branch. Only application development leads and the manager can merge into the production branch.

                  To do that we need to allow "Developers" the ability to push into a specific protected branch. A simple checkbox in the protected branch screen that said "Allow Developers to push to this protected branch" would be…

                  • Customizing reports for CI

                    In case we have many commands in build script and output contains many lines reports is too difficulty for read. Suggestion is add ability to group command via build script, for example:

                    ```
                    > Run tests # It's command group name
                    command 1
                    command 2
                    > Deploy code
                    command 3
                    ```

                    Also output of commands from different groups must be placed in different code block and would be greate to add a folding. For example what I meen - https://scrutinizer-ci.com/g/yiisoft/yii2/inspections/c16333da-c8a8-4fd1-9b83-a77ebbdd67e7

                    • File storage

                      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.

                      • 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.

                          • Have a responsive design that scales to the full width

                            I have a large and wide monitor, but some of the screens on GitLab don't expand to make use of available horizontal space. (The contents are in a fixed width block; the margins expand).

                            Screens such as the milestone view and side-by-side diff view could immensely benefit from the extra space.

                            • Deploying to a PaaS

                              To be able to deploy GitLab to a *PaaS*, i think GitLab should be more like a [Twelve-Factor App](http://12factor.net/config):

                              * allow using environment variables for configuration (shouldn't be a problem to implement)
                              * consider gitlab-shell as a backing service (e.g. make it possible to run on a different host)

                              # Background

                              I was trying to create a [Buildpack](http://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/buildpacks) for gitlab (see [amtrack/buildpack-gitlab](https://github.com/amtrack/buildpack-gitlab)) to be able to deploy GitLab to a *PaaS* like

                              * [dokku](https://github.com/progrium/dokku)
                              * [dokku-alt](https://github.com/dokku-alt/dokku-alt)
                              * ~~heroku~~ (it has only an *ephemeral filesystem*)
                              * and so on.

                              But it…

                                • Don't guess rendered code block filetype and render with a single color

                                  Currently, the filetype of rendered code blocks is guessed if not explicitly given.

                                  There is of course no good heuristics for that, so we get ugly renderings like on the annexed screenshot.

                                  Viewing the page with the inspector shows that the guessed extension was.. vimscript!

                                  Let's disable that and render code blocks without explicit language with a single color.

                                    • Allow showing per-file changes for large diffs

                                      When viewing a large diff, it would be helpful to be able to click on an individual file and see the changes just for that file.

                                      Currently, you need to either view the plain diff or use the link to force GitLab to show you the whole set of changes (which can timeout for really large diffs). It would be more convenient (and should be more performant) to just show changes for an individual file.

                                      • rules for branch protection

                                        I miss a feature to have better protection on branches.
                                        More precise level of branch protection. So only specific users can push to specific branches.

                                        We have release branches, testing branches and production branches. I would like to have something to allow user group A to accept merge requests for release branches, user group B only to accept merge requests on testing branches and user group C only to accept merge requests on production branches.

                                        The branches could be recognized by simple rules: Release branches start with /release Testing branches end with _T Production branches end with _P

                                        • Add a gitlab reference for a git tag

                                          Basically its not a critical feature, a tag is a sha, and a sha can be referenced already. But it would be more user friendly to reference a git tag. Personally I think '>' would work as a good char for it as in "this is relating to release candidate >1.01_rc2 test results"
