  1. Cloning package should copy over (prepopulate) description as well as friendly name.

    I find myself having to go to the original deployed package to copy the description information or coming up with a new description for the cloned package. Would be nice to have this brought over from the original when cloning a package.

    • Allow adding "No Difference" items to package. To help with package reuse to multiple orgs

      Allow assets with "no difference" to be added to a promotion to allow the same package to be used to both promote as well as sync other sandboxes (without having to manually check if asset was changed in each).

      • offer the capability to exclude items in a metadata filter using a regex pattern

        If we can exclude certain things in the comparison filters, all other newly created things are automatically provided with the CI job that uses my comparison filters.

        For example, at the moment in "custom filters", if I select the type "custom object" and disable "all elements", I can filter and choose which objects we want to compare.

        -> We need the option to invert the filter. To be able to select the specific objects that do not want to compare and deploy (like "Not: regex: waste_ | QA_ | staging123_").

        • Offer to push components that passed validation even if some items failed

          For large payloads (thousands of artifacts) it can be tedious to try to resolve a few minor issues when 99% of the package will deploy successfully. Having a feature to push stuff that passes validation would be helpful. Included in this in the deployment summary and deployment reports will be a count and list of items that failed validation and were omitted from the package so they can be investigated

          • add support for Live Agent and Einstein Chat Bot

            We're using Live Agent and Einstein Chat bot but there is no way to deploy this in Gearset. Per Metadata API v43.0, these objects can be retrieved and deployed:

            - Bot
            - BotVersion
            - EmbeddedServiceBranding
            - EmbeddedServiceConfig
            - EmbeddedServiceLiveAgent
            - LiveAgentSettings
            - LiveChatAgentConfig
            - LiveChatButton
            - LiveChatDeployment
            - LiveChatSensitiveDataRule

            since we use Gearset for all deploys to source and to orgs; omitting LiveAgent and chat bots means we don't have a consistent way of maintaining truth

                The list of selectable dates is alphabetically sorted: Apr, Aug, Dec, Feb, Jan, ...

                Sorting by the temporal value would be more useful.

                • Ability to chose multiple targets for a deployment

                  It would be nice to be able to deploy to multiple environments all at once from one source.

                  • Allow Migration of Data Records to Production

                    Salesforce CPQ uses Data for things that are traditionally done with meta-data. Due to this pricing logic, production configuration information, approval logic, and pretty much the entirety of the package is controlled with data.

                    Gearset has limited its data migration tool from being able to deploy data to a production org. This renders it useless when working with Salesforce CPQ and has me recommending competitors over Gearset to clients. Gearset is a better UI & workflow than other competitors, but this is a major flaw that should be removed!

                    • Compare to a Specified Source Control Folder vs. Root of Source Control Repository during Comparisons.

                      I would like the ability to specify a file folder when comparing a sandbox to version control. Most of my salesforce projects have a SRC folder with the contents of my package.xml. By not allowing a source folder when selecting the branch to compare, it renders this comparison useless as all files show as new. Please implement this feature to allow a directory for comparison so that I can justify using / selling this tool.

                          • Org Management/Oversight Dashboard

                            I would really benefit from a dashboard option. A single place where I could see my CI Job history, Unit Testing Jobs and Monitoring/Backup history for all/a subset of my orgs.

                            I am using Gearset more and more to manage the state of my org's metadata, so it would be nice to be able to see it all in one place.

                                • Commit-by-commit deployment

                                  As you are giving an option to trigger the CI job based on repository commit, it would make more sense to only compare the source and target based on the commit items and consider the commit changes for deployment based on your selection of either new, modified or deleted and the comparison filter(which can be optional in this case).

                                  This will help in reducing the chances of overriding the changes of other teams working in a shared environment or an environment not in sync with the branch.

                                  There can be other scenarios where we maintain managed package items in the…

                                    • Suppress "changed on" datetimes in difference viewer where datetime is the same as the metadata retrieval datetime

                                      The difference viewer will show Changed on values for the current datetime for certain metadata types - probably because SFDC is returning such a value when, in fact, the source didn't change at all

                                      - Custom object
                                      - Settings
                                      - Standard valueset
                                      - Workflow rules

                                      displaying the current datetime of the compare run (i.e. the metadata retrieve datetime) is not helpful when trying to filter on changed date in the difference viewer (i.e. sort descending)

                                      • select all objects option in data deploy

                                        It would be useful to select all objects in the data deploy screen to make it faster to select a large number of objects (even better would be the ability to group objects and select whole groups at once)

                                        • test run details - show failed tests tab first

                                          When user clicks on test run details, Gearset defaults to the successes tab. But no one clicks on test Run details to see successes; they want to see failures. Default tab should be failures, especially if non-zero

                                          Saves user a click and supports DWIM - "do what I mean" when clicking Test Run Details
