I have two feature suggestions for the gitlab team:
- A pipeline dashboard
- Editable Names or notes for pipelines
I’ve been wanting this one for a long time. I wish I could see all the projects I have access to and all their current pipelines. Currently, I’m an admin on our system so I find myself in admin > jobs to see how all our builds are doing (we have many projects with many dependent internal packages). If I weren’t admin, I’d be going to each project individually to check. It would be nice to know that 2 out of four projects have been deployed to devtest, for example, and also how close the others are to deploying based on our build stages (e.g. 1 is currently deploying, and the other is in automated testing).
Editable Names or Notes
This is as it sounds. Sometimes when a pipeline is triggered we want to know why, and if the change was from a dependency, the git commit comment that is currently used doesn’t reflect the update. Thus, I can see using the git comment as the default, but making it editable so I can change a pipeline name to “Manual pipeline to pickup change to package X”
