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.

  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.

    • 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.

            Currently, search work only by title, but I can not find the task by branch name

            • 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?

                • 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…

                  • 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.

                      • 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…

                        • New role to manage merge requests but not push via ssh

                          A new role "Manager" or "MergeRequestManager", that has all of master's permissions, *Except* push to code. Merges originating from server then are allowed, but via ssh are not.

                          I have a working implementation of this on standby already.

                          I sifted through first few pages and haven't seen this. I violated the contributing policy by posting a feature request in issue tracker - I am sorry about that, I will close it before anyone notices.

                              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!

                              • 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…

                                  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.

                                  • 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.

                                    • Use shields.io for badges

                                      It would be nice if Gitlab CI used shields.io badges. The current badges are inconsistent with the other badges on Github.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Show build status on merge request list

                                          Like in github, this add ability to quikly view status of build and go to build log in CI.
