  1. Include support to name space filter to include option to include unlocked packages with no namespace

    Currently there is no way to retrieve and compare components belong in an unlocked package with no name space without using the 'include managed package' namespace filter 'all' option.

    this might include too many items that I am not interested in.

  3. Provide an option to run Aura and/or LWC testing before deployment

    I don't think that very many people are actually creating Aura/LWC tests yet, but they really should be.

    Since SF doesn't require them like it does for Apex, if we decide that those tests ought to be run before deployment, it would be great to have Gearset run them. This will help us to make sure they are run before every deployment instead of relying on developers remembering to do it manually.

  4. Show the Created Date and Refresh Date on the Draft Deployments

    I understand the Draft Deployments are snapshots from when they were created or last refreshed. Is that right? Please show these fields on the Draft Deployments page.

  5. Add deployment support for Macros

    Macros deserve to be added to source control yet there is no way to do this with Gearset:

    1) Data feature (paid add-on) doesn't deploy to/from source
    2) PRO/Enterprise can't source/target deploy Macros because it is not available with the Metadata API.

    Since macros represent some debugged logic, managing in source control makes sense. Curiously, SFDC has chosen to make Documents available via Metadata API but not Macros

  6. Make Gearset more responsive via web design

    Currently when doing deployments I have realized when i migrate to a smaller screen that gearset isn't super responsive and sometimes i have to drag it back to my larger monitor. This was really highlighted when I was attempting to deploy some metadata from my phone (mac was updating).
    Please make gearset more responsive so I can deploy from my phone.

  7. Allow me to configure my default landing page on logging in

    Specifically, I use the Pipelines most of the time and would love for that to be there as soon as I login. While my use case is Pipelines specific, I would guess that others might want a different page when they login, so it would be nice to be able to configure this on a per-account basis.

  8. Add a Tab to manage Metadata Comparison Filter

    Add a menu item or tab where we can
    1. Share, delete, edit names of the custom Metadata Comparison Filters.
    2. See the comparison history, who used the filter and when in team etc.

  9. Ability to accept/disregard repo cleaner changes

    I would like the repo cleaner to work more like the problem analyser, offering a chance to accept or disregard the suggestions before executing it.

    Currently Repo Cleaner can only be enabled/disabled only at team level settings, thereby forcing the setting team-wide, which effectively rolls onto all the projects/repos using Gearset for deployments.

    I have come across a situation where I would not like to alter the repo with changes any more than what I have actually changed, but since its a team-wide setting the repo cleaner was getting triggered in and bringing in more changes to my repo than…

  10. Automatic Validation of Pull request for AWS code commit

    Gearset does not support PR validation for AWS code commit. We are cloud-native and use AWS extensively, thus missing out on most important feature of gearset. If you can support it it will be amazing and lifesaver for us.

  11. Select All Option in Deployment history

    It would be nice if we have the select all option in the deployment history to select multiple packages to combine in one go and deploy as one package into target.

  12. Allow orgs to be grouped in folders

    On the “My Connections” page, I'd love to see an option to add a folder (and sub-folders).

    Currently, there are options for "Developer orgs", "Sandbox orgs", "Production orgs", and "Scratch orgs".

    If you are running more than one entity, having the sandboxes related to a single entity inside of a folder would be more user-friendly than having multiple dev/sandbox orgs inside the same folder.

    For example, if I'm managing deployments for "ABC Company", "XYZ Company", and "LMNOP Company", and each has multiple sandboxes, it would be really convenient to be able to separate out their various sandboxes more effectively, into…

  13. Option to retry Deployment after failure

    Currently, if your deployment fails you have two options:

    1. Click "back to results"
    2. Click "new comparison"

    Going with option 1 means it needs to re-load the comparison and then click next and re-run all the analyzers again which can take a varying amount of time depending on the size of the comparison/deployment.

    In situations where the deployment failed, but the fix is to change something in the org manually - it'd be great to have an option to simply "retry deployment" from the failed deployment screen and skip the various screens and re-loading.

  14. Limit Connections creation

    Currently there is no feature to prevent users in creating their own connections within Gearset.

    We need users to follow the permission that was setup on the shared connection. We have only 2 users that have the approval to deploy code from a sandbox to production. As they can set up their own connections then this bypasses our restriction

    Having a permission only available to the Enterprise user or a user approved to create connections and delegate access would prevent the bypass of access permissions

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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'

  18. Clone Package - keep Tests list

    It would be great if when cloning a deployment, it can keep the tests which got performed in the original deployment. Right now, we need to keep a list of the tests which ran on a doc on the side.

  19. Separate Filters for CI Jobs to reflect filter edits

    Currently, if you have a saved filter being used in CI jobs, any edits/changes to that filter are not reflected in the CI jobs that use said filter.

    It'd be great if we could isolate filters for CI jobs so that we could edit CI job filters that would then affect every CI job they're being used with instead of having to edit every job and re-select the filter whenever a change is needed.

  20. 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.

    Using…
