  1. Mass delete of deployment and validation history

    Would like the ability to delete multiple history items at once. The current process of clicking delete and then clicking the confirmation is cumbersome and time consuming when we have multiple users and multiple environments kicking off many CI validations through the day. Failure to clean up the Validation history, especially, eventually brings Gearset CI viewing to a crawl. Having the ability to delete multiple at once and/or a the ability to add a retention period for history would be ideal. Validation history is the most important because you can't filter by time period like you can when you go…

  2. Clone deployment package from within the CI job history

    We have a feature branch we create a PR 1 to SIT -> we merge the branch -> deploys to SIT -> we delete the branch
    We have a feature branch we create a PR 2 to SIT -> we merge the branch -> deploys to SIT -> we delete the branch
    now both PRs are in SIT branch
    we make a PR from SIT to UAT -> Both PR's are validated against UAT -> if all is good both PR's get deployed to UAT
    but then Monday comes and business wants JUST PR1 to be deployed to production
    so…

  3. Global Search feature

    It would be very useful to have a Global Search feature within Gearset. This would be used to search the contents of all metadata objects.

    My use case is that sometimes a string has been hardcoded inside a function. The only way to find the function that contains the string is to manually trace through the code. The global search would indicate the function that contains this string.

    Another benefit would be to track dependencies for metadata objects that don't support dependency tracking. For example Aura Components, we could search for the component name.

  4. Allow capability of excluding IP ranges from Profiles during migration

    Currently IP ranges defined in, say, a sandbox get carried over to the target environment (another sandbox or Production), when Profiles are migrated.
    In some cases this means, these means these IP ranges may have to be manually removed from the target environment.
    It would be great, if there were an option to exclude these IP ranges from the selected Profiles.

  5. To be able to filter within a dropdown

    https://ej2.syncfusion.com/vue/documentation/drop-down-list/filtering/
    Much like the above, when searching through many fields it can be tedious

  6. Bash scripting

    Add support for bash scripting. This is one of the most powerful features of Jenkins and something that would make a huge difference in Gearset.

  7. Enable Gearset login from corporate SSO solution

    an additional layer of security and convenience would be to enable Gearset login (that is, login to Gearset) to be done from an enterprise's SSO solution. We use Duo but Okta and others should be supported.

    Just like we can login to Salesforce from our enterprise's SSO , we should be able to login to related apps in our suite of enterprise tools via SSO

  8. add the ability to change columns in the compare results page.

    Use Case:
    When deploying items from one Org to another I need to filter by newly created items as well as latest modified items. So there is a use case here to add the Created By and Created On columns in the Compare window.

    Or the ability to add predefined columns into the view.

  9. 'Select All' on Draft Deployments and Deployment History

  12. Add Component's Label and API Name to Export CSV results

    Please include columns for the components Label and API Name along with the Item Type and Display Name when exporting to CSV.

    Use Case - We use the Export results as a formal Deployment Log that we sharing with a Client's project team. In that log, we include the component's Label, API Name, and metadata Type. Most recipients of this Deployment Log are unfamiliar with the API Name which may not even closely match what the Label is. Having both in this Log would greatly enhance this understanding.

    Thanks in advance!

  13. Add Additional Deployment Preferences for JIRA integration

    Currently the Jira Ticket Deployment Preferences don't give you enough options to manage the expected behavior with our process. Right now there is too much noise on our tickets and we want the option to reduce that. For example, we do not need to comment on the ticket when attempting to validate deployment, just as we don't need it for failed deployments (which you already have as a feature). We simply want a comment with the deployment notes when a deployment is made since this would reflect the actual system changes that took place with this feature/issue.

  14. 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.

  15. 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)

  16. Monitoring enhancement: compare permissions across users

    It would be cool if the Gearset Permissions Explorer would help you in determining how to collapse Profiles into fewer numbers. The model would be https://perm-comparator.herokuapp.com/

    A typical org has proliferated Profiles over the years, many only slightly different from one another. As SFDC wants us to move to Permission Sets, job one is to collapse the profiles into as few as possible - this requires comparing user permissions against each other (you can't just compare profiles, you need to know what additional permissions some users have vs others too)

    Since SFDC is finally making dynamic Lightning pages GA (for…

  17. Make CI-created scratch orgs more usable by downstream webhooks

    If a CI job creates a scratch org ; and you configure an outgoing webhook in the CI configuration, the subscribers to that webhook have no way of being able to connect/authenticate to that scratch org.

    The typical use case would be to run automated UX testing (Provar, Selenium)

    At present, even the CI job creator can't log into the CI-created scratch org let alone any CI webhook

    In addition to supporting this, there should be doc on how a downstream webhook can access the scratch org to then do useful work.

  18. Show test apex run in the deployment report

    When we validate a deployment then schedule it for deployment. Once deployed we receive a report however the tests run do not show here and you have to back to the validated section to find them - please include the tests run on the final deployment report

  19. Be able to log into scratch org from Deployment Success page

    It would be super convenient to log into the scratch org directly from the Deployment success page

    • From Compare & Deploy sequence
    • From CI success

  20. Schedule multiple gearset deployments

    Have the ability to schedule metadata deployments along with data deployments. As of now, you must deploy all metadata then move into data deployments. It would be great to schedule these items in some sort of task flow.
