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

  2. Need to move Help Menu between orgs

    I recently had to move custom Help Menu items between orgs. Since Gearset didn't support it, I was reduced to manually entering the data in each org since they weren't connected in Change Set paths. I believe the metadata is CustomHelpMenuSectio

  3. Indicate whether a Validated Package is enabled for Quick Deploy

    T0 - You Validate a package to PROD (run all tests)

    T1 - You or someone else does a deployment of something else, no matter how minor, to PROD.

    T2 - You click Deploy of the Validated Package from T0, all the apex tests are rerun. This is by design per SFDC yet Gearset doesn't tell you in advance that Quick Deploy is not available. Something you think will take a couple of minutes now takes 30 minutes or more. You think you screwed up or Gearset is broken

    Suggestion: On Validated Packages page and on the page of a…

  4. Create a pop-up warning when on the Selected Items tab before you can deselect all items

    Without the Undo feature, there is the odd time (nightmare situation) where you haven't saved your compare and are on the Selected Items tab and accidentally deselect all items. It would be great to get warned that all work will be lost unless it's saved or the deselect action is canceled.

  5. Automate Salesforce org connection on sandbox refresh

    When we refresh our sandbox orgs, we have to reconnect the gearset user, would it be possible to use JWT to auto connect to the org?

  6. New Feature: Filter Custom Fields (and other sub-components) in Comparison Filters

    I'd like to be able to exclude certain custom fields from my comparison.

    For example we have fields that have environmental differences between orgs that we don't want to deploy. There are also random fields on standard objects that show up as "different" even though they aren't and it would be nice to filter them out.

  7. Filter Deployment History by Source / Destination

    At this time, there does not appear to filter deployment history by specific orgs AND other criteria in the general "filter" text box. I would like to find specific packages deployed to a specific org and also that have a standard friendly name. I am only able to enter text to filter by the friendly name and the additional filters allow for source / destination type, but it does not allow for specific source / destination.

  8. add an account based autonumber field to deployment that could be used as a friendly reference

    This could be automatically prefixed to friendly name of the deployment.

    Sth like "000035"

    Could be a simple counter (that I see you have implemented "This is your NNth deployment...").

    If the autonumber would pop up automatically then I would not need to figure out a reference and type it myself.

    Currently, info that potentially could be used: datetime (too long) , url (way too long)

  9. Ability to return sub-components of a Profile from Source Control

    Currently, profiles in source control are stored with everything as it's all stored in a single file (apex class permissions, layout assignments, etc). This is done by Salesforce.

    When using the new "delta deploy" or any comparison that doesn't include every possible dependent component (ex. apex, layouts, etc) - you see many "new" or "deleted" items related to the fact that source control returns everything within the profile whereas Salesforce only returns specific permissions based on the retrieved components.

    It'd be great if Gearset could replicate this behavior with source control to match Salesforce's behavior, where it'll obviously have to…

  10. Allow export of code coverage results in daily Unit Testing job

    It would be great to be able to export the list of unit tests and their respective code coverage in a csv file for further internal processing.

  11. Modify files during deployment process

    In Salesforce, if you add an image to a PathAssistant, it hard codes the sandbox URL in the metadata. This causes failures when you then try to deploy that item to the next environment. My idea is that a feature is added that would allow some sort of find/replace logic that's applied prior to the CI compare. Something like:
    File: Enter the name of the package file
    Search Text: The text and/or regex string to search the file for
    Replacement Text: The text to replace found the text with

    In this way, it would modify the source file prior to…

  12. Add Apex Page Permissions to Repo Dependency Cleaner Functionality

    It seems based on the below doc

    https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/3624846-what-does-gearset-s-repo-dependency-cleaner-do

    That the repo cleaner will remove permission references related to the following deleted items:

    Apex Classes
    Tabs
    Apps
    Object Permissions
    Field Permissions

    Missing from that list is Apex Pages. It'd be great to have that included to clean up references to the deleted page without having to re-run a 2nd comparison for source control.

  13. Checkboxes to delete multiple packages/validations/deployments at a time

    Hi - feature request:
    Checkboxes on the validated packages (and probably others) screen so that I can delete validated packages more quickly. One by one is a big pain, and it probably uses your storage... and it definitely clutters our workspace.
    Thanks!

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  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

  20. One stop shopping for scratch org creation

    Too many steps to get a scratch org usable for use - especially when compared to a CLI script.

    If the model is VCS -> Scratch Org, then the following should be doable in one step:

    1 - Create scratch org
    2 - Populate scratch org with metadata in VCS
    3 - Populate scratch org with SObject tree data from VCS (optional)

    By definition, the scratch org is empty so with a properly configured filter, the VCS metadata is implicitly all NEW and can be preselected checked

    If the VCS contains multiple packages, then the pipeline config could identify which…
