Deprecated Feedback Forum

This is a deprecated feature request forum for GitLab CE/EE/CI features. As you can now vote on issues in GitLab, we’re moving the feature requests to the same project as we’re doing development in. This should make the step from request to development smaller and faster.

GitLab CE & CI feature requests

To submit a feature request for GitLab CE (including CI), please search and vote for or create an issue in the GitLab-CE project on GitLab.com: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues

GitLab EE feature requests

To submit a feature request for GitLab EE, please search and vote for or create an issue in the GitLab EE project on GitLab.com: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ee/issues

I don’t see my feature request on GitLab.com

If you don’t see your feature request on GitLab.com, feel free to create an issue on the issue tracker in the appropriate project and place a comment here to link it for everyone. Alternatively, most popular feature requests will have their issue linked from here in time.

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. Guest access for all logged in users

    I have a situation in which I would like to give everyone in my company "guest access" to a public project I have. I cannot just give every user Guest privilege on this particular project as that would be messy, time-consuming, and I also auth users from LDAP, so periodically a new user is created and I would like them to be able to access this particular repository.

    • Clickable task lists in issues for sub-tasks with markdown

      It would be nice to have Task lists implementation for isssues like github done (https://github.com/blog/1375-task-lists-in-gfm-issues-pulls-comments) or some other implementation of subtasks.

      • Reply by email

        "Reply by email" is one of the high priority feature. Please support it as I am making this statement since most of the community web apps are supporting this feature as high priority one. Since it enhances the communication in the form of mailing list.

        • Tune diff output in merge request

          It will be useful if one can hide insignificant changes in the merge request's diff, such as trailing whitespace changes or add/remove empty lines. Use case — code review.

          For example It can be a checkbox "Hide whitespace changes" (off by default) in the "Diff" tab. Output filtering can be done by passing ''-w -B" to the underlying diff utility.

          Let's disscuss it.

          • Archiving old projects

            After a while, all project listings get very long. This is a problem on the main dashboard view, where I have to scroll a few pages down to get to my current projects.

            It would be great to be able to mark a project as archived so it doesn't show there, but only in /dashboard/projects listing.

            • Remote backup

              It would be nice to have an option for storing the local backups on a remote server. For example :
              1. Amazon S3
              2. Google Drive
              3. Dropbox
              4. SFTP on some remote machine

              • YouTrack issue integration

                It would be great to have an option to integrate and sync issues from YouTrack into GitLab.

                • Allow multiple issues to be closed from a commit message

                  As requested, this is a new FR spawned from http://feedback.gitlab.com/forums/176466-general/suggestions/4935173-closing-issues-from-anywhere-in-commit-message

                  I would like the ability to close multiple issues from a single commit message, MR or not. As of 6.6.5, only the 1st issue referenced as fixed gets closed.

                  As a suggestion, maybe we can support a format like this to list multiple issues in a single line.

                  e.g. the regex "^(fixes|closes) #[0-9]+((,? and|,)? #[0-9]+)*"

                  would accept these strings:

                  closes #5
                  closes #5, #6
                  fixes #5 #6 #7
                  fixes #5, #6, and #7

                  (a caveat of this would be incorrectly accepting lines like, "If a future commit fixes #5, #6…

                  • Mirror git/svn into repo.

                    Have the ability to import (http://feedback.gitlab.com/forums/176466-general/suggestions/3922290-add-support-for-importing-existing-svn-tfs-reposit) and autoupdate remote repositories to have the full benefit of selfhosting all relevant dependencies.

                    Perhaps even have the ability to contribute back later on.

                    • Support Jenkins in GitLab CE

                      GitLab CE is a great tool, but it needs the capability to have native hooks for Jenkins, like GitLab EE. After the latest update, the Jenkins <-> GitLab plugin is broken because we can no longer specify URLs.

                      Jenkins is a MUST for simple, fast, and efficient deploy environments, especially for things like Maven.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • Build pipeline / Chain Builds

                            We have several projects that share common libraries (python) or exhibit an ancestry (docker images). It would be incredibly helpful if the CI implemented chain-jobs, builds that are triggered not by a specific commit, but by the exit status of another build.

                            Bi-directional configuration would be ideal:
                            - when current job is successful, trigger builds of projects x and y.
                            - when project z is successful, trigger this job.

                            For our unit's workflows, a repeat build of the current commit would suffice, as we know that the build artifact and test outcomes could vary based on the outside change.

                                We have an Git-Repro witth tex-Files and let them compile by gitlab-ci, it would be cool if we could access the generated pdfs or a zip folder of the result, or any compiled file directly when viewing it in Gitlab and get so more user-friendly, maybe you can select one file or designate its name that will be uploaded as result of the build script

                                • 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.

                                  • Git Large File Storage (LFS) Support

                                    Would be great to support Git Large File Storage: https://git-lfs.github.com

                                    Git LFS appears to be considerably easier to setup and use than Git Annex.

                                    GitHub just announced Git LFS (opensource) and will be adding to GitHub: https://github.com/blog/1986-announcing-git-large-file-storage-lfs

                                    • vote issues/merge requests without comment

                                      Create an upvote and downvote buttons for each issue / merge request.

                                      Having to write a new comment when you only want to upvote / downvote without saying anything only clutters the comments.

                                      • Ability to assign merge request to multiple users

                                        When I make a new merge request, I want to assign it to multiple users.

                                        Right now this is the dealbreaker for us to use GitLab instead of Gerrit for our reviewing process.
                                        I think this feature should not be too hard to implement.

                                        • 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.
