  1. More granular control over CI job schedules

    Currently, a CI job that deploys from a Salesforce Org to another org or source control can only be scheduled to run at 4 hours intervals. Additionally, there is no mechanism of specifying when these jobs will run - instead, the job is scheduled randomly within the first 4 hours it was created and every 4 hours after that point.

    Providing a smaller interval (ex. every 1hr) and/or more granular control over the job execution time seems like a common sense enhancement.

  2. Publish dynamic data with Outgoing Webhook in CI deployment jobs

    As of now we are able to send only static text as a part of outgoing payload in CI Integration jobs. We want this data to be dynamic for each deployment.
    For example: We need to send the information like (JIRA User Story number, GIT commit hashes and descriptions from the pull requests being merged, etc.)
    This will allow us to publish information of successful deployments to external system.

  3. Refresh specific item in comparison through context menu

    It would be great to refresh a specific item within a comparison that I know has changed since the last comparison.

  4. Display Deployment Status Progress

    In the past in Gearset, you were able to see the status of your deployment (e.g. 100/200 test classes, etc.) very similar to how you would see the native status tracker on the Deployment Status page within Salesforce Setup. It appears this feature is no longer available in Gearset and there is no status until the deployment complete. It would be great to bring this back to Gearset, so the tool provides the full deployment scope. Since this has been removed, I now have to open an additional page to monitor progress in Salesforce.

  5. Choose Delete action per Metadata Type for CI jobs

    In the past we had troubles deploying reports via CI, they were not showing/deploying, the workaround was to enable the filter to include all reports. This works to solve that, but now I am looking at including more into the repo and start using delete actions in the CI jobs as well. The downside is that because we have to have all reports in the filter, the CI job will delete reports created by users in non-private folders. A freedom we want to give certain users in Production.

    What would be an epic enhancement (and solve this challenge) is if…

  6. More granular permission settings for sub groups of a large team

    Giving team owners/leaders the ability to define sub groups of team members and control their ability to deploy to certain environments.
    For example not being able to connect to/make deployments to 'production' orgs.

  7. Throw Error When Invalid Test is Entered

    When entering test class names in the text field, invalid entries can be added without any indication that there is something wrong, which would lead to uncovered code and most likely a failed deployment. For example, entering in ThisIsAnInvalidTestName would not result in any error.

  8. Correctly create Price Book Entries records with different currencies and updated PBEs when they are out of sync (or delete+insert)

    1) Currently PBEs are incorrectly inserted with the company currency as apposed to the currency of the source record.

    2) PBE's currency cannot be updated once created (SF restriction) but because PBE's should not be referenced by Id, (that would be a terrible design decision). It is quite possible to delete and recreate any out of sync records.

  9. The Action Order in the XML should follow the sortOrder

    Sometimes there is a difference between a object because the order of the platformActionListItems are different. Sometimes an item with order 0 comes first, but it is possible that an item with 9 comes first. This is probably an error in Salesforce API, but Gearset should order this list before the comparison so 0 will always be the first item.

  10. Select a set of data deployment templates and run them in order

    Ability to build sequence of data load (choose a list of data load templates and have to possibility to run them automatically in sequence). The sequence can be changed.

  11. Add "Manage Custom Filters" button next to Metadata Comparison Filter dropdown

    I find myself always going into the "Manage custom filters" screen as it allows you to see what metadata you're including and even change the selected filter.

    To get to that screen always requires a click on the drop down (Metadata Comparison Filter) and then another click at the very top on "Manage Custom Filters".

    It'd be great if the "Manage Custom filters" gear/button was displayed on the main UI next to the "Metadata Comparison Filter" to save time (avoid clicking on the dropdown) and allow users to quickly get to the Manage Custom filters screen which contains all you…

  12. Add friendly Name to Deployment detail and be able to add/edit from that page

    It'd be great to see the "Friendly Name" in the Deployment Summary page.

    e.g. https://app.gearset.com/finished?deploymentId=XXXXXXXXX

    And to be able to add/edit the Friendly Name on that page, same as it can be done in the Deployment Summary.

    Our use case: We audit all our deployments to make sure they have a name. It would be very helpful to be able to send a Deployment Summary link to a user to tell him to add a name if it's missing.

  13. Allow standard linux path in sfdx-project.json

    if path contains "./force-app" a bug appears, if we write "force-app" it works. so first one should work to

    Repro step :

    {

    "packageDirectories": [{
    
    "path": "./force-app",
    "default": true
    }],
    "namespace": "",
    &quot;sfdcLoginUrl&quot;: &quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://test.salesforce.com&quot;">https://test.salesforce.com&quot;</a>,
    &quot;sourceApiVersion&quot;: &quot;48.0&quot;

    }

    Result :
    Comparision failed

    Expected Result:
    Comparision Ok

  14. Allow searching Monitoring of a system by a specific record of metadata to see all the dates that the record changed

    If I need to find when a specific thing was changed in our system, my only option is either to use the last edited date or to manually check every daily comparison from Monitoring to see if it changed. Since many metadata types do not reliably update the last edited date, it makes it much harder to find those changes. If I could choose a specific metadata record and use that to search the Monitoring to see when it changed, it would be much easier to find it.

  15. mark destructive only changes as a separate difference

    due to deployment limitations with salesforce destructive changes destructive changes dont necessarily reflect branch to org so these deltas are being marked as differences even though there is no way to fix other than manually in the org. these should be marked as a separate difference type for easier filtering.

  16. Support for WaveXmd metadata is missing

    If we replace default DataSet in Einstein Analytics, it creates another type of metadata "WaveXmd". Support for the deployment of this metadata is missing from Gearset and as per discussion with Gearset team, it's a bug. Could you please fix it.

  17. Show In-Progress Validation jobs when clicking 'Details' in GitHub PR

    When viewing a GitHub PR and you have a status check that's in progress, clicking 'Details' should take you to the validation only job page and show all validations (including those in progress).

    Currently this page only shows you completed validations which makes it confusing to use at first and you have to navigate to 'Continuous Integration' and find the validation job there.

  18. Allow users to hide or collapse the middle bar of the comparison screen

    I have a small laptop monitor, so screen space is pretty valuable to me when working from home. It can be difficult to do code reviews from a laptop monitor because of the middle bar, which takes up a significant amount of real estate.

    I rarely use any of the controls or information in that box. It would be great to be able to collapse or hide it to allow more space for the top panel (list of metadata components) and the bottom panel (selected metadata contents)

  19. Add a way to "Save" or "Save As" updated filters when in the Refresh Comparison window (like you can in the Compare and Deploy window)

    When in the Refresh Comparison window, it seems there's no way to "Save" or "Save As" the updated filters. Looks like you can only access that feature via Manage Custom Filters from the Compare and Deploy screen

    Any chance we could get that added? It would be super useful!

  20. Consistently position the Source > Target UI element

    In the various screens of a comparison + deployment, the Source > Target element jumps around:
    - Top of the page for the Comparing... page
    - Middle of the page for the Compare page
    - Top-left for the Comparison Summary page
    - Top-right for the Deployment page
    - Middle of the page for the Deployment Results page

    During this process, I am constantly double-checking to make sure that I am using the correct Source & Destination environments so as not to make a mistake. Instead of scanning the entire screen to see where this is annotated, I would like to…
