  1. Add a Save As to Save Draft Deployment

    Add a Save As or an alternative way to create multiple packages from the same comparison. I have an existing comparison run and I want to stage the deployments, deploying some today and the rest next week. It would be more efficient to save both packages now as I am going through them, saving one for example as Dep120916.1 with half of my selected object and another one called Dep120916.2 with the remaining objects to be deployed later.

    • Naming Org Pairs

      I'd like to be able to name 'Pairs' of orgs so I don't have to re-select them, like 'DEV to UAT' or 'HOTFIX to Production'

        Thanks for the suggestion. We can definitely look into this.

        Would you expect to create these pairs from the compare screen, or the manage orgs screen?

        Thanks,
        Jason.

      • Provide individual class code coverage statistics

        Running tests displays overall org code coverage... it would be cool if you could provide individual class code coverage statistics as well, so we could get a good idea of what classes / triggers need attention

            HI Celio,

            Thanks for the suggestion.

            Could you explain a little more about the primary reason for wanting to store these failures?

            Where would you expect these results to be stored – in a separate tab in the history set, or alongside the other deployments in your history?

            We currently store failed scheduled deployments in your validated package history. We can certainly look at whether we could expand this to cover manually started deployments as well.

            The reason behind our initial decision not to store these in the app is that the user would be using Gearset at the time of the failure, so we would prompt them to fix the deployment then and there. Our draft deployment feature, which allows you to save and build packages over time, might also help to work around this requirement for you?

            Thanks,
            Jason.

          • Disable scheduled tests (temporary)

            We're currently using this tool primarily for nightly unit test monitoring. However, some nights we don't want the tests to run because we'll be doing after-hours upgrades and other maintenance.

            As far as we know, currently the only way to 'disable' the automatic test run is to delete/disconnect the app entirely. However this is not ideal, as we have to re-add/re-auth to turn it back on.

            If Gearset had a checkbox next to each org/environment that we could enable/disable the job at will, that would be ideal.

            • For CI Jobs initiated by Github, dynamically send CI failure / success email to the user who committed to the repo.

              Currently, we can only specify a list of users to email, a Slack channel to update, or a Chatter group to post to when a CI job is successful or fails. If there are multiple notifications to a number of people, it's likely they will filter out these messages, so being able to notify the person who the CI Job is most relevant to would be a good improvement.

              • Ability to select Field Sets as a separate item

                It seems that Field Sets are deployed by deploying the object that they are related to.

                This doesn't work well for me because I have admins changing objects in production, but I often need to deploy a Field Set to go with my code.

                Currently, I'm jumping out of Gearset and deploying a Change Set with just the Field Sets, then coming back to Gearset to deploy my code.

                It would be nice if I could select just the Field Sets and deploy them without changing anything else related to the object.

                • Allow deployment of Sharing Rules by Rule not by Object

                  In change sets we can pick individual sharing rules to push (specific ones on an object). However through gearset we can only push the whole object.

                  • Filter on Columns in comparison screen

                    On comparison screen, would be nice if we can filter on each column on top of standard string filter

                    Example use case: Show me Custom object with last modified by me with modified date within this week.

                    Can be achieved if we can filter on "metadata type", "Changed on", "Changed by" Columns

                      We’ve just rolled out most of this functionality – you can now filter using a text search or by selecting values, on a per-column basis.

                      The text filter also supports regex – just use the prefix “regex:” and then enter your regex filter. If you want to exclude items matching a term, use the prefix “not:”.

                      The only thing remaining is better support for the date column – you can filter it using the same text filters, but not yet by date range. We’re hoping to add that in soon but I can’t give you a solid timeframe for that.

                    • When the difference between Source and Target, on a particular line, is only in the formatting. Highlight in a different color

                      From what I can determine you are categorizing the differences as follows:
                      Code in Source, not in Target – Highlighted in Green
                      Code in Target not in Source – Highlighted in Red
                      Difference between code in Source and Target – Highlighted in Yellow

                      When the difference between Source and Target, on a particular line, is only in the formatting. It would be nice if that was highlighted in a different color than yellow (perhaps grey). It would speed up the review of the code knowing a certain color was only a formatting difference.

                      • Search for test classes

                        It would be nice to be able to search for test classes instead of having to type them out in a comma separated list. Gearset already has such a nice search capability and it would be great if it were applied to that dialog as well.

                        • View deployed components from a CI Job

                          Display components deployed via a CI Job. In my case, there are a greater number of total objects deployed than I would have expected; but, I have no way of viewing the comparison for what is automatically being deployed.

                              • Provide option to disable parallel apex testing in Scheduled Tests

                                Scheduled Test runs can fail due to UNABLE_TO_LOCK_ROW errors. This is due to what amounts to a bug in SF: accessing public custom settings in tests which are run in parallel can cause deadlocks. Really, the tests ought to be isolated from each other, but they are not. See:

                                https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.apexcode.meta/apexcode/apex_testing_best_practices.htm

                                The workaround in SF is to disable parallel apex testing.

                                If Gearset could do that during the scheduled test run, it would prevent false test failures.

                                I guess I could change the option on the SF org, but sometimes parallel testing is useful, so I wouldn't want to disable it…

                                  I have certain metadata which is broken or dangerous to migrate from a dev org, I'd like to exclude it from this and subsequent releases. If I could 'right click' and ignore it that would be good.

                                  • Be able to create a CI Job with the option to validate only (and quick deploy later).

                                    For the case where users have committed changes to a "master" branch, it would be useful to automatically run a full validation on the new commit in the Production environment. In that way, a deployment manager can review the changes and quickly deploy a validated package that has passed all tests in Production.

                                    • Detect global picklist dependency

                                      When I deploy a custom field that uses a Global Picklist which does not exist in the target, Gearset does not currently detect that I need to include the Global Picklist in my deployment.

                                      It would definitely save some time if it could tell me that.

                                      • Differentiate XML and Code differences in the comparison

                                        I would find it very useful if the comparison result highlighted if the difference was in the XML or the Code (or both) for each item. This would especially save time when there are a lot of differences.

                                          Thanks for the suggestion Celio.

                                          We think this should be possible to do and are doing some background work into how to manage and display this. More details to come soon.

                                          Thanks,
                                          Jason.

                                        • Auto-generate deployment note and git commit message

                                          When Gearset makes a commit, it defaults to a blank deployment note and blank git commit message. Although I can edit this , it would be awesome if you can merge in details from the deploy to the commit (like components changed, what salesforce user made the change etc)
