  1. Gearset API to externally trigger Gearset actions

    It would be incredibly helpful to trigger Gearset comparisons, validations, deployments, etc. from an external source using an API. Our team uses GitHub for our VCS, which provides the perfect opportunity to:
    1. design webhooks to validate changes in order to approve a Pull Request
    2. design webhooks to automatically deploy changes to an org once the PR is approved.

    Additionally, CI tools such as Jenkins, TravisCI, TeamCity, etc could use such an API to design complex builds that still employ Gearset, but use the external tool for additional actions outside of what Gearset provides for their CI features.

    • Improve PermissionSet comparisons by providing an option to ignore fieldPermissions when their editable/readable are set to false

      Current Metadata Behavior:
      When a new object is added, objectPermissions are only added to a PermissionSet only if one of allowCreate, allowDelete, allowEdit, modifyAllRecords, viewAllRecords are set to true
      When a new field is added, the new fieldPermission is added to all PermissionSets by default (with editable and readable set to false).
      NB. PermissionSets are additive in behavior and can only open up access not revoke. Values of false have no meaning and are only noise.

      Current Gearset Comparison Behavior:
      Comparing PermissionSets show these new fieldPermssions as New Items even when default values for editable, readable are set to false.…

      • Create the ability to migrate components to new source and target orgs after having in a Saved Drafts.

        When saving components into drafts, when validated, we would like the ability to be able to migrate the same components into new source and target orgs.

            • Gearset integration with Jira hosted on local Server

              It will be great to have Gearset integration with Jira hosted on local Server. Currently, we have only with JIRA cloud.
              Thanks

              • Improve detection of custom fields on Managed Package objects coming from Git

                If I have a managed package object in Git, Gearset does not recognize it as managed package code in its comparison to a Salesforce org. This is a problem since it may not recognize a change if a custom field has been added to the managed package object.

                • Be able to switch the direction of a comparison/deployment

                  Sometimes we need to reconcile changes on an object between two orgs, where some of the changes have been made in Org1 and some in Org2. Having set up metadata filters, compared and deployed required changes from Org1 to Org2, it would be nice to be able click a button to switch direction to then deploy required changes from Org2 back to Org1, without having to go through the whole process of setting up a new comparison.

                    Ability to filter on org and/or org type in deployment history so we can easily view which deployments were made to which orgs. For example, filter to only return deployments to production orgs.

                    • would be cool to be able to "ignore" certain differences

                      would be cool to be able to "ignore" certain differences... e.g. encryption. So if encryption is enabled in a Production Org but not in a Sandbox (not sure if Encryption is possible for SBs), you have a difference for every custom field <encrypted>true/false</encrypted> which is really irritating.

                        Some operations, such as a comparison or deployment, can take some time. I normally navigate to another tab. It would be good to get a browser alert when the operation is finished and I'm needed again

                        • display error when package.xml is unparseable or otherwise in error

                          When deploying from GIThub, if package.xml is messed up (easily doable when resolving merge conflicts), Gearset can't deploy but the error given back to user is not helpful.

                          Use case 1 - Compare and Deploy; source = GitHub branch
                          All you get is "errors encountered" with option to send bug report. No idea problem is package.xml or where within

                          Use case 2 - CI job. Here, you get "Sequence contains more than one element - no changes were deployed" but it doesn't tell you that package.xml is the issue or the line number therein

                            • Provide link from standard field to Standard Value Set

                              Some of the standard picklist fields in Salesforce have their values defined in Standard Value Sets. This means when you add a new value in the Salesforce UI, for example in the Type field of the Case object, that you are actually editing the CaseType Standard Value Set and not the Case Custom Object.

                              Gearset detects all these differences, but it isn't obvious why Case.Type appears as unchanged in a Gearset comparison. It would be better if Gearset showed some help text in the Case.Type object definition that pointed me to some help docs or linked me to the exact…

                              • Display "Metadata comparison (custom) filter" used on "Comparison in progress" -screen

                                Hi! I just started to evaluate Gearset. Looking good. When I was staring at "Comparison in progress"-screen this came to my mind:

                                Sometimes it takes a bit longer than expected and I start to think: "OMG - What custom filter I used? - Probably I'm comparing everything - That's why it takes so long - Maybe I should cancel this job?".

                                It would be more reassuring if the Metadata comparison (custom) filter being used was also shown on that "Comparison in progress" screen.

                                  When creating new CI job from one Salesforce org to another, there is no way to edit the frequency of synchronization. It would be useful to make a change so that integration is done less often than every 4 hours

                                  • In comparison mode, remember whether I want to see the XML view or a friendlier view of the object I'm looking at.

                                    I noticed that the non-XML option label changes depending on what type of object I'm looking at. Regardless, if I select the non-XML option in comparison mode, I'd like the site to remember that option during my session so I don't have to keep re-clicking the non-XML option for each line item.

                                      • Show Workflow Activities As Dependency of Parent Workflow

                                        When selecting a Workflow Rule, its dependent components (i.e., email alerts) are not shown in the dependency view. They should be.

                                        • Include select all option for Manage Custom Filters

                                          Selecting individual items to include for custom filters is a laborious process. We have to exclude 6000 items and we are unable to do this manually. Please add the select all option when using a filter in the manage custom filters dialog so multiple items can be selected at once.
