GitLab: enhanced integration [SG-9710]

Marc Strapetz 2 years ago • updated 3 days ago 10

Support for displaying merge requests, like for the GitHub integration

hosting provider

I'd also like to be able to mange GitLab issues via SmartGit.


What do you mean by managing issues ?

Are you aware of the Git Bugtraq integration in SmartGit ?


I would love Merge Request integration.

The GitLab Flow is described here: https://about.gitlab.com/2014/09/29/gitlab-flow/

I certainly would appreciate the enhanced GitLab integration. Especially the merge request integration is really needed in our team. Is this Feature already planed for an upcoming release?


+1. It would be great to see the following enhancements to GitLab integration:

  • Merge Request -- be great to see a list of merge requests with status, filtering, etc.
  • Issues -- be great to see a list of issues with status, labels, filtering, etc.
  • Builds -- If project has CI enabled, show build status for each commit. Be great to also show pipeline, etc.

For Merge Requests and Issues, I don't personally feel it would be necessary to support accepting, responding, etc. Feel like it would be sufficient to view the information and clicking on the request would open a web browser to the correct GitLab page where the user can take action.

For Issues it would also be great to have some notification when new issues are submitted; don't think a desktop notification is required... maybe a flashing icon?


For my company (ENGIE - INEO Systrans - France - 50 outdated licences) and for me (as a private paid customer) we are mostly interested by :

  • Merge Request -- list of merge requests status and actions.
  • Builds -- If project has CI enabled, show build status for each merge request, and if possible for each branch. Be great to also show pipeline.

GitLab merge requests and comments and OAuth-support will be present in the next 18.2 preview build. Regarding issues, builds, ... please post new topics, explaining in detail how you would like to see this information integrated.
