  1. UI Enhancement: Drag modal windows to reveal background

    UI Quality of Life recommendation: let me drag the modal windows so that I can see what classes are being deployed, which will let me quickly specify tests without having to go back to my code base to look.

      • Option to validate / deploy only running test classes in deployment set

        When deploying, there's a pain point when we want to specify tests to run. It would be nice to have an option to only run test classes that are included in the deployment. Automatically identifying which test classes are in the deployment package should be fairly straight forward:
        `grep -ri @IsTest ./src/classes`

        • create branch

          It would be nice to be able to check Salesforce changes into a new branch in Github (or other git repos). This would provide admins an easy entry point for their changes into a git repo without having to learn the esoteric git command structure.

          • Live chat button overlays action button

            Not sure how you resolve this one without moving either button. Maybe do something similar to what is done in the Diff view (where the action buttons are displayed in a row below the content).

            Another option would be to have the live chat in the header navigation to toggle the feature on / off?

            Not sure...Just noticed that it gets in the way sometimes.

            • Avoid going to Setup | Deployment status on "validate deployment don't run any tests"

              If you are deploying to PROD and
              a) You have Apex classes in your deployment
              b) You choose Validate Deployment - Don't run any tests

              The Validation will fail and Gearset will tell you to check the target org Setup | Deployment Status where as suggested, the most likely cause is test coverage failures.

              This is in fact true but it seems that Gearset could warn you before acting on a PROD deployment with non-test apex classes and 'don't run any tests' that this will be guaranteed to occur and give you a chance to reconsider your choice before wasting…

              • View email templates that are part of a managed package folder in comparison

                Hey guys,

                I am not sure if this is an actual issue or not but I will ask the question to see if I am missing something :)

                When comparing email templates, the compare will return both email templates and folders. I have noticed that in my case, email templates that are part of a managed folder do not return. We can see the folder and sync the folder settings, but no templates. If we move the templates to a non-managed folder we can see the templates. Has anybody encountered anything similar?

                Thanks!

                Richard

                • Automatically revert PR in GitHub CI Jobs

                  When a CI job fails, the bad code remains in the GitHub repo. I'd like to see a way to revert the commit/PR that caused that failure so that any CI jobs for new, unrelated, commits/PRs won't fail while the developer is working to resolve the issue.

                  • Have a timer on the compare page to indicate how long the compare is taking

                    Sometimes a compare can take us 30-45 minutes depending on the complexity of the org. I would like to see a running timer on this page of how long the compare is taking. I don't expect it to say how long is left, just how long it has taken so far. This will help to highlight if any abnormalities are happening, ie. if it's taking a very long time and is only at the Downloading phase for example.

                    • Support customer S3 buckets for storage

                      Allowing customers to specify their own S3 buckets for storage could be beneficial for the product. This would give the customer enhanced security and control over their data.

                          • Make default 64 Comparison Faster

                            If there is one thing that is :-( about Gearset is that for moderate size orgs (a few thousand objects), the default 64 comparison takes too long.

                            You want to initiate a deployment from source to target and, for whatever reason, you want to make sure you didn't miss anything that needs to be deployed

                            So, to be safe, you initiate the 64 default comparison.

                            And you wait (downloading, comparison). This can take several minutes. You go on to other tasks and your zeal to get the deployment done went off onto other things as the comparison time is too…

                            • Be able to require a commit message for deployments

                              Sometimes a user may forget to add in a commit message before deploying, so the history in our source control is "no commit message" which is not editable. Can we add a feature to be able to turn on marking commit messages as a requirement for deploy?

                              • For CI Jobs initiated by Github, dynamically send CI failure / success email to the user who committed to the repo.

                                Currently, we can only specify a list of users to email, a Slack channel to update, or a Chatter group to post to when a CI job is successful or fails. If there are multiple notifications to a number of people, it's likely they will filter out these messages, so being able to notify the person who the CI Job is most relevant to would be a good improvement.

                                • Access to Critical Updates

                                  We use Gearset as our primary utility for managing various client orgs include Production and Sandboxes for Testing and Release Management. It would be great if there was also a way to access, review and potentially enable/disable any Critical Updates in any org from Gearset.

                                  However, I do understand that Critical Updates may not currently be accessible from the metadata API.

                                  Just a thought,
                                  Mike

                                  • Search for test classes

                                    It would be nice to be able to search for test classes instead of having to type them out in a comma separated list. Gearset already has such a nice search capability and it would be great if it were applied to that dialog as well.

                                    • Provide a way to deploy push topics

                                      We have a push topic that we use but there is currently no easy way to deploy changes between orgs. Would it be possible to do this via Gearset?

                                      • Add button to go from validation package to comparison

                                        Use-case is where we have validated a package, but not been able to deploy it before expiry. Eventually, we are able to deploy it...

                                        At this point, I'd like to be able to go from my validation package in the history straight to a comparison with the same objects selected. Then, I'll be able to make sure everything still looks good and validate/deploy again.

                                        • Echo source/target on Resolve Missing Dependencies page

                                          If you are using Gearset to deploy between multiple orgs/repos, you may find you have launched the analyzer on multiple tabs within the browser (or across browsers). Since this operation takes some minutes, when the page 'Resolve mIssing Dependencies' appears, you get no clue as to the source/target. In today's multi-tasking life of a developer, it is easy to get lost and forget which tab was for which deployment.

                                          Basically, the principle should be to echo the source/target in the header of all pages/dialogs - especially if the operation to arrive at that page is not 'instant' wherein the user…
