  1. Integrate with Agile Accelerator instead of just Jira

    Integrate with Agile Accelerator instead of just Jira.
    It would be great if Gearset (and ideally the Pipelines-feature) could integrate with Agile Accelerator.

    Since we're a Salesforce-partner we want to use as many Salesforce-native solutions. That's why we've been happily using Agile Accelerator for many years.

    It would be great if Gearset can also integrate with Agile Accelerator instead of just Jira.
    Right now the Gearset Pipelines feature isn't useful to us, because of this sole reason.

    Thanks for considering this!

  2. Add RecordType support for PersonAccount

    Problem analyzer is always trying to remove my picklist values from any RecordTypes on PersonAccount. I am forced to use a custom "Problem analyzer template" where "Remove picklists from record type" is disabled.

    Suppose I have a field called pickme: Account.Pickme--pc | Contact.Pickme--c it shows up in the record type XML as Pickme--c, and it seems like gearset tries to find a picklist on account with that exact API name, which will of course fail. My ask is that rather than raising an error at this point, GS should repeat this check on the contact object where it would find…

  3. Write Deployment Results back to the user's Salesforce org

    When setting up a deployment, it would be helpful to capture Deployment Results in a custom object in the running user's Salesforce org. Users would be able to specify a unique reference at the point of deployment, which would track through to the Salesforce org.

    Information about the deployment would be captured in a Master record, with data about individual components existing in Detail records.

    Org admins would then be free to leverage automation features to map the created records as they see fit.

    As a consultancy that tracks our customer requirements in Salesforce, our use case would be that…

  4. Enable Field Level Mapping for Data Deployments

    Currently there is no field mapping option available for Data Deployment of Objects. This is a big blocker if we want to migrate selective fields data across Salesforce instances.

  5. Option to set and make use of 'deployment rules'

    It would be great if we can have the option to set and make use of 'deployment rules':

    1 - receive an alert/warning message (in gearset/via email) right before deploying to a selected target environment, for instance - a production environment if certain pre-defined metadata types are included in the deployment.

    use cases: a reminder to run all test when deleting metadata, a reminder to activate a flow on target environment after deployment.

    2 - block a deployment in the following case scenarions:

    a - if the deployment of certain pre-defined metadata types happens within a pre-defined timeframe.

    use case:…

  6. Make Custom Filters a Top-Level Menu Item

    Filters are arguably the best part of gearset, especially with the support for RegEx. It is kind of a bummer that they are tucked away in a modal that can only be reached by clicking into a dropdown. Ideally you could just go to Hamburger > Metadata Deployments > Custom Filters and be routed to a dedicated page.

  7. Introduce Import/Export feature for Custom Filters

    Expose the underlying JSON/XML for Custom Filters so that we can export it, modify it in a text editor either by hand or with python scripts, then load it back into the custom filter.

    For example I have my main CI filter with 50ish metadata types, and every other filter is a subset which I establish by cloning the "master" filter and deselecting metadata types. Whenever I make a change to the master filter I am forced to nuke all the the "detail" filters and recreate them off the master using the above approach.

    So many clicks. My preference would…

  8. Allow me to configure my default landing page on logging in

    Specifically, I use the Pipelines most of the time and would love for that to be there as soon as I login. While my use case is Pipelines specific, I would guess that others might want a different page when they login, so it would be nice to be able to configure this on a per-account basis.

  9. Hide re-ordering in a Monitoring job

    We have a monitoring job set up to check production changes. However, re-ordering in some components are popping up as false positive. For example, Entitlement Process and Site.com. Everyday I get an email saying # of changes have been made on production. I'd like to not see these false positives in the # so that I do not need to go to each comparison every day just to realize that it's a re-ordering issue.

  10. Add schedule deployment for Pipelines

    It would be great to add a new feature to cherry pick and schedule deployment for the changes that have reached up till staging/uat and should be released to Prod. Without this feature it becomes difficult to manage releases to avoid downtime.

  11. Saved Comparisons should be visible to team members

    I have a team that has access to Gearset but unfortunately they cannot view the Saved Comparisons I've created. To reduce unnecessary time spent on creating and maintaining Saved Comparisons, it would be greatly appreciated if the Saved Comparisons could be shared with the team and possibly allow the owner to delegate access to the Saved Comparisons.

  12. extend the GearSet public API to include Data deployments between Sandboxes and Scratch Orgs

    Allow triggering Data deployments via the public API to eliminate having to sync data manually. This also includes triggering creation of Scratch Orgs via the Gearset API so that Gearset can instantly recognize them them.

    The workflow we would like to automate is: feature branch is checked out which triggers a CI/CD system pipeline to create a corresponding scratch org, do a metadata deployment from a test sandbox, and sync data from the same test sandbox. This allows us to create on-demand full copies of the environment for purposes of E2E testing (inc. external integrations) and feature development that requires…

  13. Allow page layout field additions and removals to be selectable

    As a user, when selecting page layout changes to include in my deployment, I would like to include only the fields I have added that are different from my destination environment.

    Dev environments can be worked on by different people. There are times when a solution requires adding an existing field to a page layout to solve your user story.
    At the same time, another user story may also be making changes to that page layout using different fields (removing or adding).

  14. xml formatting support for Illuminated Cloud

    I would like to see support in the 'XML quote escaping style' for Illuminted Cloud (and potentially other IDE Vendors)
    I am struggling currently as my Admins use gearset for source control commits and my developers use Webstorm and Illuminated Cloud which causes conflicts (generally with the utf/UTF issues but some others as well around validation rules and some formula fields).
    Ideally, If a team standardizes around one IDE then all they have to do is come in to that setting and set it to what the IDE does as a default and then you wouldn't get any conflicts with…

  15. Notify GitHub that checks are running sooner

    When a PR in GitHub is being validated, Gearset doesn't let GitHub know that the check is happening until after it has run the comparison between GitHub and the target org. Then the check is pending while the validation runs in Salesforce.

    This means that there is a delay between when you create a PR and Gearset's check appearing as pending in the PR. At that moment, it looks like there are no more checks to run in GitHub so you can go ahead and merge. But, you really should wait until Gearset has compared and validated the changes.

    It…

  17. Jira comment only for production releases

    We would like to have the option to choose which deployments create Jira comments. As business users often watch our Jira tickets, we would prefer only posting comments when we actually "release" (deploy to our production org) and skip comments for releases on sandbox environments.

  18. Create a pop-up warning when on the Selected Items tab before you can deselect all items

    Without the Undo feature, there is the odd time (nightmare situation) where you haven't saved your compare and are on the Selected Items tab and accidentally deselect all items. It would be great to get warned that all work will be lost unless it's saved or the deselect action is canceled.

  19. Make Pipelines a Top-Level Menu Item

    This is a less-good, but arguably easier to implement, version of my request for customizable landing pages. It takes a few clicks to get to pipelines and, since it's the place I live most often inside of Gearset these days, I'd love it if it was a menu option that is parallel to "Continuous Integration" so I could get there in fewer clicks.

  20. Enable source control as source/target in Data Deployments

    It would be great if we could add source control as an option for Data Deployments, this will be useful in cases where we want to backup copies of CPQ record data which manage configurations to our source control repository.
