  1. Create a persistent default setting for Monitoring Job Notifications

    It would be nice if there was a way to default the notification for monitoring jobs to 'send notification only when changed'. Right now, if you set monitoring, you get an email a day from that job, regardless if there was a change or not. You have to manually change it otherwise.

    Nice to have that setting front and center, available when you select monitoring, as well as have a default value for each org type; Prod, Sand, and Dev.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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)

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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'

    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.

  17. 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

  20. Use the information in a JIRA ticket to select the components to deploy

    Instead of manually selecting components to deploy. If we have an integration with JIRA and the components are listed on the JIRA ticket. Would it be possible to then specify JIRA tickets to deploy and have Gearset automatically build the deployment package?
