  1. configure which problem analyzer results to use in CI jobs

    Being able to configure which problem analyser results to use in CI jobs.

    For instance, we can’t deploy any changes to managed packages because the problem analyser will ignore them (even though we have components from a managed package that we can modify and deploy without issues), that would help to reduce our manual steps during deployments.

    • Export snapshot of production org to git

      I'd like to be able to export a snapshot of all the metadata from my production org (include all components) to my git repository by clicking a single button.

      After every release, it's worth taking whole metadata export from the org to git for the next/on-going releases.

      For now, we have to create a couple of metadata projects to export the metadata to git, which is a tedious job and takes a lot of time.

      • create a visualization of the DevOps process

        Creating a visualization of the DevOps process removes the need for separate Visio diagrams or visual aids to represent the process. Also by creating this feature, you could allow for a drag and drop type feeling to represent CI Jobs, Data Deployments, Comparisons, etc. Users who may be new to a DevOps environment would pick up the process quicker allowing them to quickly adapt to the tools and this type of deployment mentality.

        • Validation Failures - Show Error in Table

          In the new UI for Validation to view failed test classes error messages you must click into each failed class to view the details.
          --
          The previous UI showed "part" of the error message within the table. This was extremely useful in identifying all of the "unique" errors that are occurring.
          --
          IE: If 58 test classes fail from "4" unique issues -- then in order to determine that you may need to click into all 58 test classes or fix one at a time --> refresh --> validate.
          --
          This is just a time save feature.

            • Show history of changes for a component

              When performing forensic analysis regarding how or why something started working differently, it would be a great timesaver to be able to select a component and then be able to select the data comparisons for just that component. For example, select an apex class and then pick date dates so the system can display what changed. I would expect that this would be quicker than going into Monitoring Histories and picking each date and waiting for it to build the entire comparison of everything that changed and then having to find the component of interest.

              A follow on to this…

              • Remind repo owner to upgrade metadata on SFDC version change

                Your blog post https://gearset.com/blog/mdapi-versioning-and-version-control says it all under the paragraph labeled "Upgradingyour repository's metadata"

                But there's no real reminder to tell the team that this is a meritorious idea. My suggestion is that for the first 30 days after PROD is updated, you could display (in color) some alert (or maybe introduce a messages feature) wherein you tell the team that the repo's package.xml is out of date (version wise) with PROD version and provide pointers on how to upgrade, including nuances like Flows (v44).

                It is too easy to get lazy and leave the repo metadata out of date…

                  • Enable Defaults or Recently Used on Clone Deployment Page

                    When you clone a deployment package you have to select your Source details, but the selections do not default to the the last used settings or to a recently/commonly used settings. This is a minor annoyance but in other parts of GS you have the last selected options already selected based on user history, so hoping you can extend this to the Clone page

                      • Allow option to select certain test classes to NOT run. Include an exclusion list of tests not to run

                        When deploying code, it would be nice to have an option of having an exclusion list of test classes to not run.

                            When looking at a comparison it shows changed by as a column, would be helpful for consultants to Show Created By and Created Date as well

                              • Allow for custom metadata permissions to be included with a single click when custom fields are being deployed

                                For example; when adding new custom fields, you generally have to add the permissions as an additional line item to the deployment. Having a checkbox or something that will have gearset automatically add the permissions associated with the metadata currently in the deployment list would speed up the process. Users should also be allowed to deselect lines that were automatically added.

                                • Add default compare filter - Code changed by me today, changed by me last 7

                                  A super common comparison done by a developer is to see only the Apex changes done by that developer today , or in the last x days

                                  Since the last changed dates on Apex (VF, triggers, components) is super reliable whereas it is useless on Custom Field/Workflow), the suggestion applies only to Apex or code-type changes

                                  Gearset would fetch only those code items changed in the last x days, then present in the difference viewer the changes pre-sorted in descending date order

                                  This feature would eliminate multiple clicks just to deploy a handful of recently-made code changes in the comparison…

                                  • Adding Custom destructive

                                    ANT is unable to change the type on an EmailTemplate from HTML to CUSTOM. To solve that we need to add the EmailTemplate first to the destructive package to have it removed and then add it again with the package.xml
                                    Since this file is not deleted but just changed. It doesn't show up in the deleted items tab.

                                    We should add an option to the "Selected Items"/"Changed Items" list to opt-in for adding that to the destructive.

                                    • Output information after CI Job regarding problem analyzer skipping some component deployment

                                      I would like to get some information from the problem analyzer after a CI Job completes as it seems like if it detects a problem during the job it skips deploying some of the components, like user permissions.

                                      • Ability to chose multiple targets for a deployment
