  1. Add Upload CSV functionality to create an upload template for CPQ deployments

    For CPQ Deployments add an "Upload from CSV" feature where a user could upload a file with specific External IDs across multiple objects to tell Gearset what to migrate in a single click.

    For example, the user could list the Object API name in Column A of the sheet and the External ID in column B and then Gearset would parse this and create a Data Deployment based off of those records specifically. This would be incredibly useful for any CPQ deployment where you need to only deploy specific records not the entire object!

  2. Plain text list export of metadata

    There are times when I'm in an email thread with other developers and I want to share a list of metadata that I'm trying to deploy via Gearset. It would be nice to have a button after a validation or deployment (failure or success) that copies in plain text a list of everything in the deployment. The list not only has the name of each metadata, but also the type of metadata it is.

  3. There should be an option to schedule unit test jobs weekly in Gearset

    Hi Gearset,
    I would suggest you to provide an extra option where we can select weekly ,daily or monthly schedule jobs in Unit Testing Jobs.

    Thank you,

  4. Selectively filter managed package metadata without excluding unpackaged components

    Add the ability to filter in/out managed package elements from a comparison set at metadata type level. e.g. allow for the comparison of managed package objects and fields but exclude other managed package metadata types whilst allowing those types to be available for non-packaged constituents. More specifically for instance, exclude manage package page layouts and include managed package custom fields whilst including both unpackaged page layouts and custom fields in the comparison set.

    The reason for this is to minimise the comparison set which can reach limits due to size whilst including all mandatory metadata elements for a deploy.

  5. How about a default BitBucket repository on the popup page that appears when you clone a package (under “Deployment History”)?

  6. Include a feature to connect between SonarQube and Gearset

    I really love using Gearset. It would be great if we have a plugin in there to integrate Gearset and SonarQube to display Static Code Analysis and Test Coverage in Sonar. I had tried this through CircleCI and it requires lot of configuration and we need write code to create and maintain the connection.
    Whenever there is an update to the GIT Master it has to Initialize the Sonar Scanner and it'll run some tests and display results in SonarQube.
    Thanks!

  7. Coerce run specific tests when package only has test classes

    If the deployment package (especially if target is PROD) contains ONLY Apex classes annotated as @IsTest, then coerce (w/ user confirmation) the deployment to just run those test classes.

    This helps avoid errantly clicking the default Deploy and waiting 20-30 minutes for all tests to run. If only test classes are being deployed, by definition, the underlying code hasn't changed and all tests DON'T need to be rerun.

  8. track metadata filter changes

    Filters are shared by default. However, if someone changes the filter, I cannot tell what has been changed, who made the change or when it was changed. Ideally, I'd like a version history for each filter.

  10. Meta Data Searches

    Ability to do a meta data search like you can in eclipse or visual studio in gearset.

    For example search a custom field and where it is used within your org.

  11. enumerate unsupported metadata in Manage Custom Filters

    In Manage Custom Filters dialog, Gearset should link to

    a) https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_meta.meta/api_meta/meta_unsupported_types.htm
    b) a Gearset list of Metadata API-supported but not yet GS-supported metadata types

    saves devops person wondering why certain metadata can't be deployed

  12. Metdata Optimization / CleanUp Analysis

    A very good feature for metadata management tool like gearset will be an helper which allow to identify metadata not used or not properly configured.
    For example this concurent have this feature : https://www.metazoa.com/snapshot-use-cases-org-cleanup-and-optimization/

  13. Allow the use of cached metadata during comparisons

    Over the past 2 days we ran multiple comparisons between salesforce orgs. Nothing was changed in the target org but some fixes were applied to the source org in order to make the deployment successful. A lot of time would be saved if we had the option to compare the source org to a cached copy of the target org. In this case, the source org was finishing very fast, especially when we used the local file comparison.

  14. Provide the ability to run static code analysis on all commits to the repo

    We'd like the ability to run static code analysis on all commits to a repo, regardless of the branch name. This would allow us to catch code quality issues early and up front, regardless of the branching model we use.

    Example: https://www.atlassian.com/git/tutorials/comparing-workflows/gitflow-workflow (development is done in feature-* branches, so there's no one branch we can configure a CI job on)

  15. Gearset to do Sanbox Refresh by copying metadata and data from production

    Quite often an Environment needs to be refreshed, but every time it happens all the integration breaks as OrgId changes. Gearset can move metadata and data, which when made together can be a solution for sandbox refresh. Full copy sandbox sometimes takes days, GS will be able to it quite quickly.

  16. 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.

  17. Allow save into a draft deployment after Refresh Comparison

    Use case:

    Source is master, target is org
    Create draft deployment between master and org; Save
    ...time passes, new items are added to master
    Open draft deployment
    Refresh Comparison to see new items in master
    Select new items
    Click Save Draft Deployment --you have to create a new version (and no obvious way to even see the current draft's name without opening a new tab)

    Seems like you should be able to save back into the same draft after refresh comparison (or at least have option to do so).

    When you create a new version of the draft; you have…

  18. Create an rss or atom feed as you add new features

    When working inside of Gearset, it often alerts you to changes that have been recently made. It would be nice to have these as a separate, consumable, feed. We have a slack channel that we would like to pipe those changes to, for instance.

  20. 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.
