  1. Improve PermissionSet comparisons by providing an option to ignore fieldPermissions when their editable/readable are set to false

    Current Metadata Behavior:
    When a new object is added, objectPermissions are only added to a PermissionSet only if one of allowCreate, allowDelete, allowEdit, modifyAllRecords, viewAllRecords are set to true
    When a new field is added, the new fieldPermission is added to all PermissionSets by default (with editable and readable set to false).
    NB. PermissionSets are additive in behavior and can only open up access not revoke. Values of false have no meaning and are only noise.

    Current Gearset Comparison Behavior:
    Comparing PermissionSets show these new fieldPermssions as New Items even when default values for editable, readable are set to false.…

    • Add column filtering with org type(s) in deployment history

      Ability to filter on org and/or org type in deployment history so we can easily view which deployments were made to which orgs. For example, filter to only return deployments to production orgs.

      • would be cool to be able to "ignore" certain differences

        would be cool to be able to "ignore" certain differences... e.g. encryption. So if encryption is enabled in a Production Org but not in a Sandbox (not sure if Encryption is possible for SBs), you have a difference for every custom field <encrypted>true/false</encrypted> which is really irritating.

        • Show Workflow Activities As Dependency of Parent Workflow

          When selecting a Workflow Rule, its dependent components (i.e., email alerts) are not shown in the dependency view. They should be.

          • Compare active versions of flows (processes)

            When comparing flows (processes) between environments, Gearset appears to try to match on flow version number, even though different environments are likely to have different numbers. It seems like it would probably be more helpful if the comparisons were between just the active versions.

            • Support more than one Dev Hub (sfdx) per Gearset Account | Manage Orgs

              The Manage Orgs tabs only allows one to have at most one Dev Hub. This can be limiting in the following use cases:

              1. Your Gearset user account is associated to a PROD org that has Dev Hub enabled yet the Gearset user wants to experiment with sfdx and Gearset using the SFDC Trailhead-recommended 30 day Dev Hub Trial Org

              2. You are a consultant working with multiple clients, each using SFDX and hence each with their own Dev Hub. Yet as consultant, you have only a single Gearset account.

              • Avoid Analyzer suggesting to deploy a workflow's Sobject when such SObject and all referenced fields exists in the target

                Use case:
                1. Deploy from source to target a changed Workflow (from active to deactivated)
                2. Target already has all of the workflow's referenced components (fields used in filter criteria, fields used in Field Update)

                Analyzer will tell you "Add the following to the deployment" and something that looks like:

                Deploy All
                - object.WfName
                -- object and its subcomponents
                -- object and its subcomponents
                -- object and its subcomponents

                Since the object is already in the target as are the subcomponents, this message is alarmingly misleading and could inadvertently lead to deploying an object not yet ready.

                The above message…

                • Cache Github comparison so deploy to different orgs is quicker

                  When cloning the same package from production to multiple developer orgs it would be nice to save the cache the GitHub download so that you don't have to wait on Github.

                  • Improve analyzer for named credential when target is an org

                    Named Credentials can't be deployed into a SFDC org under (at least) the following circumstances: Authentication Protocol = Password Authentication.

                    If you try and deploy to an org (works fine for source control), you will get this error: "A password is required for the specified authentication protocol."

                    Root cause is that XML does not contain the pw:
                    <NamedCredential xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">
                    <endpoint>https://oauth.helix.com/v0/oauth/access_token</endpoint>
                    <label>foo</label>
                    <principalType>NamedUser</principalType>
                    <protocol>Password</protocol>
                    <username>bar</username>
                    </NamedCredential>

                    • Allow "Rollback" if you have a user within the same org

                      Rollback currently requires the user who did the deployment to enable "Deployment" user access. Instead, it would be helpful if I could use my own user, within the same org, to do the rollback.

                      This would be helpful if the individual who did the first deployment is unavailable.

                      • Static code analysis - allow for exclude patterns on classes

                        The new static code analysis feature using PMD is a good first start but there are too many false positives to make this useful

                        Here is one place to start:

                        Allow for specification of regex patterns to exclude classes. Specifically, classes that start with xxxx_ would be most helpful as it would allow us to remove from analysis unmanaged packed code like fflib (Enterprise Patterns) or sfab (SobjectFabricator). There are hundreds of lines of PMD rule alerts from these classes

                        • Allow for selecting which repositories to display for github in org settings.

                          It would be helpful to be able to select repositories to display in the selection under Manage Orgs. Some of our repos in Github aren't related to Salesforce deployments, and filtering those out so they don't even show in the list would be really helpful in getting to selections faster.

                          • Support aliases for metadata types in the search box

                            So often, I type something in the search box for a metadata type based on the point-and-click force.com labels and the search comes up with nothing.

                            I'd suggest an auto-substitute option so if one types in 'Email alert', it auto-prompts for the metadata API substitute: 'Workflow alert' Or, if one types in 'Support process', it auto-prompts to substitute 'Business Process'

                                It would be nice to be able to share custom git repositories with the entire team. At this time, each team member that does deployments needs to configure each custom git repo in Gearset. Besides requiring them to set it up, it also means I need to give each person the credentials.

                                • Allow selecting a metadata comparison filter when editing a existing job

                                  For monitoring / backup and CI jobs, when looking at the Metadata Filter tab, it would be great to be able to select from the Metadata Comparison Filter. Sometimes I want to be able to reapply a custom filter.

                                  Specific example - I have a monitoring / backup job. Originally it was comparing 65 metadata items. Later, I changed the filter to compare all 96 types of metadata. Now, I want to undo my change. How do I get back to the original 65 without manually unchecking each type?

                                  Thanks!

                                  • Provide the option to skip problem analysis

                                    Sometimes during a complicated deployment I need to try a few different strategies to get things to work. For example, I may need to just send up one piece or set of metadata up first.

                                    The problem is, each time I do this, I have to wait for problem analysis to complete, which takes a couple minutes. Normally during a deployment I do want problem analysis to run, but if I want to quickly send up a single object, I have to wait a few minutes while Problem Analysis runs, and the time waiting adds up.

                                    Maybe a quick deployment…

                                    • When exporting from the comparison reports page, the currently selected items should show in the export

                                      Today when you are on a comparison results screen there is an export button that will export the entire list of comparison results to a csv. However the current export does not include a column indicating items that have been selected for the current deployment. Having this column would help in reviewing the list of data outside of gearset.

                                      • Refresh Comparison should have an option: "Selected Files only"

                                        A common use case is:
                                        1. Compare default(66) source and target
                                        2. Select some files
                                        3. Deploy
                                        4. Get some error indicative of either missing file or out-of-date file(s)
                                        5. Fix file(s) in underlying org/source branch.
                                        6. "Back to results" Optionally mark additional files as selected.
                                        7. "Refresh Comparison"

                                        This takes too long, you just want the selected files to compare (and really, just get on with deploying). You don't want to wait for both source and target metadata to load and compare. You don't want to uncheck/check specific metadata components that represent your selected files. You just want a…

                                        • Allow multiple ownership in Gearset

                                          Currently only the creator (owner) of Schedule Test, Monitor Orgs and Manage Orgs can edit these activities. It would be helpful if we could designate more than 1 Owner for these activities. Similar to granting access to the various orgs (Comparison, Validation& Deployment) it makes sense to also include an Owner access as well.

                                          If this is not possible, having a transfer ownership button would be helpful for each activity.

                                          Thanks!
