  1. Create Scratch Org dialog should echo DevHub name

    When you Create a Scratch Org, the dialog that appears doesn't echo the DevHub name used to associate the scratch org. Since one's Gearset user account could be authorized to multiple DevHubs, one loses the thread (breadcrumb) to which DevHub is being used for the new scratch org

  2. Add NotificationTypeConfig metadata type

    There is a new metadata type in API 48.0 NotificationTypeConfig. It would be great if you can add it.

  3. inform users they're logged in somewhere else when failing concurrent logins

    When a user might attempt to log into their account from a second computer (or VM), its appropriate to fail their login on the second computer. Right now, there is no indication that this has occurred because they're already logged in elsewhere. The error talks about adding Gearset IPs to Salesforce, but the issue is being logged in already.

    I suggest telling us we're already logged in. It's easy to forget!

    Thanks!

  4. Searching for work item should allow for searching by ticket #

    When searching for work items to associate to a deployment, user should be able to enter ticket IDs rather then key words from the Azure DevOps ticket title. This will make it easier to search larger backlogs.

  5. 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.

  6. Add filters & search to the Salesforce orgs page

    Add Filter/Search to the Salesforce Orgs page. On Deployment History you have a filter that is very handy when sorting through the list to find a specific deployment. I am currently trying to add multiple new dev Orgs for a client and it is hard to sort through them all. Can you add the Filter/Search option on the Orgs page?

  7. ability to filter on components

    i would like to see the ability to filter deployments based on the components, just like the "Metadata comparison filter:" under Compare and Deploy option

  8. Ability to clone deployments and include non-different (same) metadata items.

    I would like to be able to Clone a deployment and include all of the metadata from the cloned package, even if there are no changes in the target org. This way I can incrementally build up a master package that includes all my metadata regardless of where I chose to deploy it.

  9. Add ability to customize CI Dashboard

    We have a number of different teams using Gearset with a number of different CI jobs. I don't care to see their jobs in my dashboard and they don't care to see my jobs on their dashboard. It would be great to be able to customize my dashboard so that I only see the jobs I'm interested in. Maybe it's some sort of flag on job to be able to add/remove from dashboard or maybe its a separate tab called 'My CI Jobs Dashboard' that we could default to when opening CI Jobs. Thanks for your consideration.

  10. Allow Username/Password authentication option when selecting target/source orgs during cloning a deployment package

    Currently, when cloning a deployment package or re-deploying a package to a new target, it only works with OAuth authenticated orgs. It would be nice to have more of my available saved orgs to be a target/source when cloning a deployment. I am not able to authenticate a target or source using a My Domain or Username/Password with this method.

  13. Jira Integration: Include the option to add a comment in JIRA with the URL of the pull request created from Gearset + Assign reviewers

    After a deployment to a git branch, gearset allows to create the pull request from Gearset. It would be nice to:
    1. Have an option to add the pull request URL to the deployment notes
    2. Have the capability of add reviewers (users from the git repo) into the Pull Request

  14. Associate pull requests to work items in Azure DevOps

    When you create a pull request from gearset, the pull request isn't associated with the Azure DevOps work item.

  15. Metadata filter - ability to select Report/Dashboard folders by parent folder name

    When setting up a metadata filter for a new comparison, when it comes to Reports and Dashboards, it would save sooooo much time if they could be selected according to the top-level/parent folder that they reside in. That would enable the ability select all reports within a single parent folder at once, rather than having to select reports separately which reside in a nested/child folder.

  16. Link to salesforce source records

    When reviewing a Comparison with Salesforce as a source or target, include a link to the Setup/Configuration page that is being compared. For example, a link to a Page Layout that the user could click to jump right to the Layout in the appropriate Salesforce environment. There are times when we review Comparisions and need to see the source outside of Gearset and this gets the user there much faster.

    The link would appear in the header of the Comparison window, near where "SOURCE" and "TARGET" are listed.

  17. Monthly sandbox refresh from production

    I would like the ability to refresh a sandbox from production on a scheduled recurring basis on a monthly cycle (ex: from prod to a full sandbox) so as not to overwrite current development items that are in process or testing.

  18. Ability to change Formula Fields to other Field Types

    Gearset doesn't help with one of the most common deployment headaches: changing a formula field to a non-formula field type. It's still a nightmare even with Gearset.

    What would be awesome would be if you had a "Change Field Type Wizard" where we could say FormulaField1 needs to become TextField1 and it would do multiple deployments to accomplish the changeover:
    - get components
    - deploy temp field of new type AND update all existing components to reference the temp field instead of the formula field
    - deploy delete of formula field
    - deploy text field in place of the old…

  19. API to provision users, assign users to connected organisations

    API to provision users, assign users to connected organisations

    It would be hugely benificial to us (60+ connected organisations, 25 employees working in teams for multiple clients at a time) if we could programatically provision/deprovision users and provide access to connected organisations via an api.

    At the moment this is error prone manual work that has to be done by someone with high level access (and as such is usually already short on time).

  20. call webhook with scheduled deployment

    We would like Gearset to call a webhook when a scheduled deployment completes. The message to the webhook should pass a message with the org name, UTC datetime, the deployment friendly name, URL of Gearset deployment results and a status field with 'succeeded' or 'failed'
