CircleCI Ideas

allow private namespaces for orbs w/ CircleCI

Many organizations using orbs would most likely want to publish their orbs privately.

I assume orbs will be scoped to your GitHub org as namespace?

So it would be great if we can publish orbs to foobar/wizzle (assuming GH org foobar), and to have those be only visible to users / jobs within org "foobar"

    Does "planned" mean this is already on the product roadmap? If so, can anyone clarify on when you plan to include this feature?

    We're really loving the great reuse we get out of Orbs, we just wish we could use them to share our internal tooling within our organization.

    Did this just take a step backwards by moving to "Future consideration?" from "Planned"?

    We're working to clean up "Planned" to mean work that's already in progress rather than meaning "things we hope to do" to avoid setting bad expectations about timing. This is still something very much on our radar, but we're not actively building it yet.

    @nathan is there any tentative date that Circle is targeting for this?

    I have no guidance to give for dates on this (in general, we don't like to set any expectations about dates until things are already under active development)

    Would love to have this feature! I work in the fintech industry and we are under heavy regulation so this would help us very much in stop repeating our builds.

    Given Orbs are basically the only way to reduce YAML boilerplate across projects, I honestly would think Private orbs would have been the default (or first implementation).

    Is this still only a future consideration? Is it not planned at all to work on?

    Many people requesting it... but where are any movements from Circle? :-\

    We are very aware of the desire here. At the moment this work sits behind some changes to our underlying security model that are part of some larger efforts that are underway.
