  1. Add an auto-save feature while building deployment packages

    As Gearset is run through a web browser, if the browser happens to freeze while a package is being built, you don't have the opportunity to save it as a Draft Deployment. An auto-save feature would allow someone to pick up where they left off, or when the last auto-save was done, without having to start from scratch.

    • Provide the option to ignore whitespace differences in Apex

      It would be great to have more control over the diff process - particularly to be able to ignore whitespace changes.

      If I've made an actual function change to a class, and also auto-indented it, then it would be a lot easier to see the important change if I could hide the whitespace-only changes.

      Having the ability to suppress whitespace-only changes on the list of changed objects would be really useful, too.

        Thanks for the suggestion.

        We have plans to improve the way the diff viewer handles changes and whitespace in the future, though it’s not currently under development.

        Thanks,
        Jason.

      • 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.

        • Ability to compare and migrate object data between ORG's

          The metadata compare and deploy is outstanding and works well. What would save configuration and release engineers even more time would be an object data compare / sync. Sometimes, salesforce releases may only require a data migration. Hopefully, this feature will get a few upvotes from the community as well.

            We have begun investigating adding data migration support into Gearset and this forms part of our roadmap for 2017. We’ll keep you posted with progress as we work on this set of features.

          • Allow Source Metadata To Be Customised Prior To Deployment To Target

            In order to support a development pipeline (e.g. Dev Environment -> Staging Environment -> Production) allow Metadata from the source Org to be modified before deployment to the target Org.

            e.g. I have a RemoteSiteSetting in source that points at https://dev.example.com and in my staging environment I need this to point to https://stg.example.com

              Thanks for the suggestion Paul.

              It’s something we should be able to do, but we need to do a little bit of investigation first to work out exactly how this feature should look and what the functionality would be.

              Thanks,
              Jason.

              • 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?

                • 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…

                  • Provide a way to init a sandbox

                    It would be nice if there was a quick way of init'ing a new sandbox that matches either what was in source control or an existing sandbox.

                    Currently, I need to run a comparison between the existing source and the new sandbox and then I can try the deploy, but it would be nice if the compare step was not needed and I could simply say 'overwrite what is in the sandbox with what is in the specified source'

                    • Here's the best solution: Be able to quickly select the custom objects and standard object custom fields AND only the related metadata items

                      Would like to be able to quickly select the custom objects and standard object custom fields AND only the related metadata items to make then function correctly (permissions, layouts, field level security, etc..)

                      Then we could go back and migrate all the process automation stuff - workflow rules, flows, trigger, etc..

                      It always starts with the data schema first. We need a quick way to see what is different between two orgs and get that synced first

                        • Deploying Profiles - Create, Update, Delete

                          I have noticed that in some scenarios, user profiles cannot be created, deleted or updated. In addition, some pieces such as user license cannot be updated due to the Salesforce architecture. To create a new profile with a specific license, we would have to clone an existing profile that has the correct license and then update the permissions accordingly. When deleting a profile, first we need to ensure that the profile is not associated with a user (it doesn't matter whether the user is active or inactive) and then the profile can be deleted. When updating a profile, based on…

                          • Allow deployment of PROFILE only

                            The main reason we considered Gearset was issues with deploying profiles. Half the object settings, if not more, don't come over with change sets. When attempting to use Gearset to ONLY deploy a profile, we had the same issue. So, what's the point of using GS then? When I talked with one of your technical resources he did mention that was not a common use case. I would think it would be for large organizations like ours (over 3500 employees). We may want to spin up a new profile and just deploy that with no app or any other features…

                                It would be nice to have the ability to select multiple packages in the deployment history, and clone all of them into one comprehensive deployment. This would help when there are multiple features moved at different times to a QA environment, but would like to move them all at once to Production.

                                • Initiate comparison from package.xml

                                  I'd like to be able to drop a package.xml file on the New comparison screen. Doing that will have two effects.

                                  First off, it will drive the selection of which metadata types to include in the comparison.

                                  Secondly, it will automatically select the components listed in the package.xml on the comparison results page.

                                  This provides a really good way to expediting a deployment, since package.xml are used pretty universally by both IDEs and standard deployment tools (including packages).It also helps me take advantage of the intelligence of automatic dependency and all of the other goodies that Gearset has. Basically I…

                                    • A way to view failed deployments from Gearset

                                      Right now if a deployment fails in Gearset, it doesn't show up anywhere within Gearset; it just sends you an email. It would be nice to have a place to view failed deployments and retry them (maybe it only failed because the environment was locked), just like you can with successful deployments in Deployment History.

                                      • Option to validate / deploy only running test classes in deployment set

                                        When deploying, there's a pain point when we want to specify tests to run. It would be nice to have an option to only run test classes that are included in the deployment. Automatically identifying which test classes are in the deployment package should be fairly straight forward:
                                        `grep -ri @IsTest ./src/classes`

                                        • Unselect all standard profiles & related permission

                                          Often you want to deploy Admin profile and (x) custom profiles. Compare and deploy picks up hundreds of entries for standard profiles which are surplus to requirements. A single click way would be veryuseful.
