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. Delete wiki pages

    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.

          • Maybe it should be possible to have a build script per branch if needed

            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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                        GitHub has this feature. It works like a charme and makes it super easy to write good bug reports.

                          • 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.

                                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.)

                                  • 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.

                                      • 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
