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".
(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. Avoid using low-contrast text in documentation

    The doc accessed via the Help link is fine, but the doc online at http://doc.gitlab.com/ce/ is very low contrast and can't easily be read. (I have to either highlight it all, or just do a web search for some other page that documents it with readable text.)

    • Multiple Label selection

      We should be able to select multiple labels as in github, which helps us to search/select the bugs in easy and intuitive manner

      • Relative URL Support

        Relative URLs seemed to have never been properly impliemnted in the code base and all issues relating to it have recently been close and further development related to it has been halted. I suggest the code relating to url usage/generation include logic for inserting a relative string into their paths.

        • Ability to have multiple email address

          It would be nice to have multiple email address for one user. For examle i have one private email, one for university and one for work. All commits from these email address should be referenced to one user.

          • Implement two factor authentication (2FA)

            Support two-factor authentication with the Time-based One-time Password Algorithm (TOTP). This would allow GitLab to work with the Google Authenticator app https://moocode.com/posts/3-using-the-google-authenticator-app-with-rails

            Because it is two stage Omniauth can't offer this.

            http access would have to happen with a long token string.

              • Allow camelCase / PascalCase repo names

                The forcing of repo names to lowercase is a bit annoying and creates a huge amount of work for us to move to Gitlab. At the very least, camel or Pascal casing helps with readability of long repo names. For many folks -- us included -- consistency with .Net namespaces is a big deal.

                Without the ability to preserve the current repo names while converting from gitolite, it creates a huge project for us to migrate. We have over 400 repos and lots and lots of automation and tooling -- all of which would need to be modified -- relying…

                • Add gitter support

                  Gitter can accept webhooks from multiple services. https://github.com/gitterHQ/services#gitterim-services--

                  It would be great if GitLab is added to the existing ones https://github.com/gitterHQ/services/tree/master/lib

                  Support for the gitter service is available at https://gitter.im/gitterHQ/services

                  • Use something more meaningful than WWW to differentiate URLs of gitlab.com blog from Cloud

                    Currently, www.gitlab.com goes for the blog, and gitlab.com goes for the Cloud.

                    I was really confused by this and could not find the blog when I wanted to because I was not putting the www.

                    Only now have I learnt that the two are completely distinct, however I suspect that the average non networking programmer does not know that because most websites chose one and redirect the other to it: it is very rare to see a website that uses www to differentiate between both.

                    Why not use something more meaningful to differentiate them like `blog.gitlab.com` or `company.gitlab.com` and then…

                    • Display somewhere the current GitLab version used on GitLab.com Cloud

                      At present, it is difficult to know which features of GitLab is running on GitLab.com cloud. Moreover when you are waiting for new great feature.

                      • Ability to build manually or automatically

                        I would like to suggest that the automatic build can be switched on/off and add an ability to manually run a build.

                        This can help a lot in deployments as CI can be turned into a deployment tool as well by giving permissions to certain users to run manually builds on specific branches.

                        • should be able to install under all webservers.

                          Currently, you must install gitlab together with Nginx. If you are already running apache or another webserver this means troubles (port collision).

                            Actually, you just can upload images to the wiki. It could work with other filetypes too in order to add docs in PDF or design files to the project wiki.

                              • Support git annex

                                Much like a Wiki is a nice complement to a repository, the ability to associate large binary files with a repository would be very useful.

                                Such files (e.g., pdf files, executable binaries, etc) that are not easily or naturally diff-able end up being either dumped into a git repository, leading to huge bloat, or placed on services like Dropbox & Google Drive that don't really have open source replacement, or that are just flat out banned in some companies.

                                Command line and web interface support for git annex would get around these issues. Much like the Wiki, one can envision…

                                  • Closing issues from anywhere in commit message

                                    Currently, one can close an issue by placing "closes #foo" as the first text in the commit message. I think this should be available anywhere in the message. This is for two reasons:

                                    1. It lets one prioritize the description of what changed over the bug number, making commit logs more readable.
                                    2. Parity with GitHub. (Features which are almost but not quite the same as GitHub are annoying.)

                                    • Allow wiki pages to show images

                                      It would be nice to allow wiki md pages to reference a jpg or png inside the wiki repository. Guess that we just need to render images as raw files.

                                      For example:
                                      project.wiki / home.markdown -> this file will have: ![Image](image.png)
                                      project.wiki / image.png

                                      Also, an image upload feature on wiki page edit is desirable.

                                      • Add support for Restructured Text

                                        Currently the markup language supported is .md. It would be quite useful to add .rst support as it's predominant in e.g. python-based projects.

                                        • 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.
