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 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. 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.

    • Rebase merge requests in the web ui

      Offer the option to squash all the commits in a merge request to a single commit before merging. This keeps the history of the master branch clean (only a single commit). Rebasing on the command line is time consuming and error prone. Do not offer this option when there are already commits of this merge request branch in other branches.

      • Linking issues from comments and automatically closing them

        Issues mention in commits or other issues could appear in this issue site as comment or whatever. Also special commands like close or fix could change issue state.

        • Send email notifications when a build fails

          GitLab CI seems to quietly accept that builds have failed without doing anything about it... it'd be good if you could enable an option for email notifications on a per-project basis.

          Potential email options are:

          - Email everyone on the project
          - Email the person who broke the build
          - Email project Masters
          - No emails

          • Projects entry point: default to the README tab for first time visitors

            We are hosting several open source projects with GitLab, and also use it as project platform for working together with other companies.

            It is the case that most of the users are non developers, they just need to have the project description in the Wiki and, as an entry point, the readme file.

            Getting this information is currently better as in the past: There is the readme tab close to the activities tab, and - if you click on it for the first time - it becomes the default for what is shown when you visit the site.

            Nevertheless, you…

            • Improve email/notification system

              Improve email/notification system to be in line with GitHub's (watch button on project page and watch thread button on issue & merge request pages).

              Allow a user to control their watch/notification status independent of their access to a project.

              Should automatically receive notifications for discussions in which they participate or are @mentioned in.

              Should be able to opt out of all notifications for a specific project.

              Should be able to opt into receiving all notifications for a project.

              Should be able to opt into and out of notifications for specific issues and merge requests.

              • Enable other login methods for GitLab Cloud

                It looks like OmniAuth has support for OpenID providers (such as Google, Facebook, Yahoo, etc.) It would be great if GitLab Cloud installed/enabled this service so that casual third-party visitors could be given access to private repositories without them being required to create another login.

                  • 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…

                    • ADD README to project home view

                      It would be extremely helpful if there was at least an option to have the README show up in the "home" view for each project, or make the "files" view the default. Currently when you click on a project you are just shown its activity feed, which isn't actually very helpful for someone newly added to the project. I have learned to always click on the "files" tab to find out about the project, but this is unintuitive for new users.

                      As we're trying to get more and more people in our group to use Gitlab, it would be really…

                      • GitLab CI project setting with a submodule

                        I have two project A, B in a GitLab server, and A has B as its submodule.
                        A cannot be compiled with B, since B is a static library project required by A.
                        In this case, how I can setup my build script of A in my GitLab CI?

                        I've modifed the lib/build.rb to insert '--recurse-submodules' option to the line of clone and fetch, however, the two project's tokens are different from each other, so the submodule fetching is failed.

                        I have no idea to go on next.

                            While it is possible to delete a wiki page by checking out the repository and deleting the file, it would be way more convenient if that was possible through the web ui.

                                • Store build configuration in the repo (like .travis.yml)

                                  Travis CI's .travis.yml files are a godsend when maintaining large numbers of repositories, and GitLab CI would really benefit from a similar system (maybe .gitlab.yml). We have an in-house framework with many small components that are all tested/built in exactly the same fashion. If we make changes to our build scripts, a web interface becomes a tedious bottleneck in the process. This would also solve the current most popular idea ("Maybe it should be possible to have a build script per branch if needed") because each branch can simply have a different .gitlab.yml as required.

                                    By having different build scripts for branches (if activated) you can do different Build Jobs on e.g. the development branch and the release branch. (E.g. normally build and code checks on development branch and build, packing and deployment on release branch)

                                    • Allow changing project/group owners

                                      As an administrator for our development team, I end up being the owner of all the projects that are created - mostly because I'm the only one that creates them. It'd be nice to be able to change ownership to other people after creation so that repo admins don't have, like me, 30+ projects to their name, despite participating in 3 of them.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Provide a button to mark a merge request as 'merged' if done manually

                                          It would be convenient to have a button to mark a merge request as 'merged' if the merge was done manually. This would minimize the number of steps involved when merging a feature branch that is to be deleted after the merge.
