  1. Ability to chose SFDX source format (force-app) compare or old style (src)

    Add a checkbox to chose wheter we want a sfdx compare or an old one (in order to not let gearset chose for us)

  3. Select more than one item at the same time

    On "Items to include/exclude for Custom application" view, it would be really nice if we could select more than one item at the same time, using SHIFT shortcut.
    When clicking on "Named Item", and if you want to select from the 49th line to 63th line for example, and to avoid to select manually 15 lines with 15 clicks.
    We could just select the 49th line, and with SHIFT, click on the 63th line to select them.
    Thx

  5. `Deployment history' User Interface update.

    In `Deployment history' it would be great if when you choose a target and it opens in a new window. Deploying 48 packages and it is painful.

  7. metadata filter recipes

    Some deployment metadata filters are obvious like Apex classes+profiles but others aren't so, especially to newbies

    • Deploying a picklist change on an object w/ recordtypes
    • Deploying an app/tab and visibilities therein
    • etc.

    It would be cool if the custom filtering could link to some recipes to help the user pick all the relevant metadata before tha analyzer runs

  8. Warn user if they don't check any items in the items to include/exclude dialog

    A common mistake is to

    a) Create a custom filter
    b) Select, say Custom Object, as the metadata object
    c) Refine the filter by choosing to select only some custom objects

    BUT - either change mind and click out of the dialog or , simply never choose any item(s)

    So, even if you (in the left hand pane) ticked Custom Object, if the Named items is an empty list, you'll get no custom objects in the compare

    In other words, if Named Items is the state of the filter but no items were named, that is a nonsensical configuration and…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Meta Data Searches

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

  15. 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.

  16. 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)

  17. 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.

  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.

  19. Combine multiple daily monitoring results into a single deployment

    If you want to deploy the differences of an org on a weekly basis, it would be a great option to take the monitoring results of the last 7 days into a single deployment.
    Especially in huge orgs, where comparism takes 30 minutes time to show up, this would ease deployment pretty much.

  20. CI Duplicate Job should allow creation of a Validate Only from a "deploy" CI job

    This would be handy:

    If you have a CI job (deploy type) with various configuration (metadata filter, notification, etc) and you want to Duplicate that job, you can't duplicate it to a Validation-Only job. You have to re-enter everything.
