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".
(thinking…)

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.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Add option to unfold more text when viewing diff

    It would be great if there was an button to show prev/next lines of the file when viewing the differences.

    F.e. if you open this diff on bitbucket (https://bitbucket.org/libgd/gd-libgd/commits/183935de849c07218e3fb1c8791d7300a56af216), you can click on [...] before and after the patch and it will unfold the previous/next lines of the shown file.

    • Allow asciidoc content in wiki via web interface

      Currently the GitLab project wiki only allows rdoc and markdown editing. Please can you consider allowing asciidoc editing via the web interface. It seems the wiki can already render asciidoc correctly when its added directly via git so this change should be fairly trivial.

      • provide an "Public Groups" area that enhances the exploring of projects

        We use GitLab as a collabaration tool between our different development departments. But not only the departments can create projects, but of course every single user.

        The problem with that is, that the "public projects" page gets quite big and the searching for particular projects gets harder.

        We suggest to have an area, where the user can see all groups that are available.

        If he's not logged in, he will see only groups that have public projects available. If he's logged in, he will see the groups where he has at least read-access to it.

        There is already a pull-request…

        • Star a project to show it at the top of your dashboard list

          I'd love to be able to star a project that I'm currently working on, or about to work on, so that it appears at the top of my projects list on my dashboard page.

          As a lead dev I am peripherally involved with a lot of projects so it's painful sometimes to get back to one or two that I am currently working on myself. This would help me avoid many annoying browser bookmarks :P

          • Allow image attachments when creating new issues

            It would be great if you could attach images(s) to issues when you create them, not just to comments.

            • 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.

              • Allow customizing issue label colors

                Currently the issue labels and their colors are hard-coded in https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlabhq/blob/03441769dfc09776eb8511275a3f492ded1a7c42/lib/gitlab/issues_labels.rb. It would be much better if these label assignments are customizable.

                • delete branch after accepting or closing a merge request

                  Provide an option to the user (that requested the merge request, or people that have developer access to that repo) to delete their branch once a merge request is accepted or closed.

                  • Implement a service hook for HipChat

                    There are third-party tools to implement HipChat integration in the same way that GitHub does it for commits, issues, etc, but they're all written for Gitolite, which has been deprecated as of GitLab 5.0.

                    Can we get some integration for HipChat services built in?

                    • 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.

                      • Code-Review (commenting) for a whole file

                        Commenting on a commit for a specific file is good, but it would be also great if i could comment a whole file (perhaps at the tip of a branch)

                          Each file is created by a commit, therefore it is already possible to comment on files. Please give a more detailed proposal (URL/UI/screenshot) if you want to reopen this.

                        • Manage labels

                          Provide a way to manage existing labels per project.

                          Possible actions:
                          - Remove a label at project level => the label should be removed from all issues
                          - Edit a label => all issues tagged with the old label are updated to use the new label

                              You currently allow Markdown and RDoc as formats for the wiki. Any possibility of adding in MediaWiki's syntax as well?

                                  • Create Merge Request suggestion message should check if a merge request is already open

                                    I really like the suggestion message that appears after you push to a branch. However, it gets a little confusing and annoying if you have already created a merge request, say you forget something and push back.

                                    An hour or so later while browsing through gitlab it will say, "You pushed to branch 44 minutes ago Create Merge Request". Then I get confused and can't remember if I did create a merge request or forgot.

                                    I think it should just check if a merge request is open, if so, don't show the message?

                                    • Allow group masters to create projects in a group

                                      Master users should be able to create new projects in group even if they are not the group owner.

                                      • Link issues to milestones in different projects

                                        Several projects I have are organized by library and application. Sometimes I have a milestone for the project but I need the issue in the library to be complete to reach my milestone. I would like to assign an issue to a milestone in another project. (Possibly multiple milestones)

                                        • 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.
