  1. gitLab for destination of comparaison

    I can't compare my sandbox org as source against my git repo as destination of compare.
    I can see : gitHub, bitBucket as destination but no Gitlab.
    It would be nice I if I could choose Gitlab as well and update my repo from changes in my org.

    • 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.

      • add a mechanism to edit the git commit message (summary of changes? or details of who run the deploy?)

        When Gearset makes a commit, it commits with a blank message. It would be good to be able to enter some details, or really awesome if you can merge in details from the deploy to the commit (like components changed, what salesforce user made the change etc)

        • Remember my default source control system and default to it

          We use Bitbucket not git hub. So on compare metadata screen when I go to Source Control radio would be nice for the version system to default to bitbucket.

          Small tweak I know but annoying to change every time. Easiest might be that the drop down list stays set to whatever system you used last?

          • View deployed components from a CI Job

            Display components deployed via a CI Job. In my case, there are a greater number of total objects deployed than I would have expected; but, I have no way of viewing the comparison for what is automatically being deployed.

            • Under deployments in the validated tab there is no column for the name of the deployment. Please carry over the friendly name.

              When a draft is validate, as the gatekeeper for production I cannot see what a coworkers validated deployment is about. It seems like the friendly name should carry over as a column to display on the validated tab, also into the deployment history.

              • 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?

                • Add Team Foundation Server (visual studio supporting GIT) hosted or onpremise SVN version control application to Source Control

                  We use VTFS for version control hosted or OnPrem SVN for version control. Our enterprise architecture team has determine those are our 2 options for source control and Gearset doesn't support those options.

                  • Save previously entered comparison filters

                    I am currently using a standard regex filter each time I do a comparison. It has become quite lengthy such that I can't easily remember it. I have ended up saving it in a separate text file and have to open it, then copy and paste it into Gearset each time I do a comparison. Pretty cumbersome.

                    It would be nice if the Filter... text box on the comparison results screen was a combo box that when clicked, dropped down a list of recently used filters. Each entry in the list should be removable (like with a little 'x' icon…

                    • False positives in managed code

                      When I enable comparing managed packages (e.g. when I have added a field to a managed custom object), I get lots of false positives saying that there are differences in apex code.

                      On the source org, the code is show as "(hidden)"; on the target it is shown as empty. And Gearset lists this as a change.

                      Obviously, I know it's not a change, but it adds a lot of clutter to the comparison view.

                      • Be able to create a CI Job to auto-commit (changes between two orgs) to source control

                        We have both admins and developers working within our SFDC environments.

                        Admins typically deploy across environments, so being able to create a CI job to keep the repo updated with these org-to-org changes would be ideal.

                        • Prev/Next buttons did not function for setting the focus when in APEX view mode

                          When viewing an Apex class with differences, the Prev/Next buttons did not function for setting the focus in APEX view mode however they did function when in XML view mode.

                            However, the number of differences does appear when viewing the same Apex class in APEX view mode.

                              • Suggestion - make comparison highlight colors configurable

                                The background highlight colors for differences are much too light to be able to be seen clearly when viewing in APEX mode. Colors are much brighter in XML mode. Request - allowing these colors to be configurable. Thanks for the consideration.

                                  • 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.

                                    • Be able to create a CI Job with the option to validate only (and quick deploy later).

                                      For the case where users have committed changes to a "master" branch, it would be useful to automatically run a full validation on the new commit in the Production environment. In that way, a deployment manager can review the changes and quickly deploy a validated package that has passed all tests in Production.

                                      • Allow scheduled jobs to be assigned a different authentication user

                                        We would like the ability to change over scheduled monitoring/testing jobs to a different authentication user. Currently if we need to switch an authentication we lose the history.

                                        Consider:
                                        I leave my employer and I need to switch the monitoring over to another developer or admin. I have to delete all the current scheduled jobs and re-create them using the other users authorization. Which causes the history to be lost.

                                        • Add org name column to deployment history

                                          We currently have to prefix the deployment friendly name in deployment history with our sandbox/org name to be able to sort by target. It is not easily filtered either as the name column includes both source and target. We would like to have the target org as its own column in deployment history, and have it use the org friendly name as the value if one has been set.
