    • 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…

      • 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.

        • Add search specific item history

          For monitored environement, it would be great to have the ability to search for specific item history.

          • When deploying just a Visualforce page, don't automatically run Apex tests

            When deploying just a Visualforce page via a Salesforce change set, the default option is to not run Apex tests. Gearset should mimic that default behavior.

            • 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 Get some error indicative of either missing file or out-of-date file(s)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…

              • Error while deploying dashboard component using Changeset / Gearset / ANT

                This is a common error received during deployments:

                Error: Metric, gauge, or table dashboard component missing indicatorLowColor attribute (line 70, column 33)

                This is a suggestion to Gearset team for there feature Deployment analysis if they would pick this error in advance before deployment.

                Observation: This issue occurs when the Dashboard is created in Lightning. (I cannot confirm though)

                Resolution:

                Downloaded package.xml and component

                Basically, after I pulled the dashboard metadata from source org, I opened it and found the
                <componentType>Table</componentType> tag, and right under it I added this:

                <indicatorHighColor>#00716B</indicatorHighColor>
                <indicatorMiddleColor>#ffb75d</indicatorMiddleColor>
                <indicatorLowColor>#C23934</indicatorLowColor>

                After this change I managed to deploy everything…

                • Add a validation/warning for when users try to filter only permission set for comparing and deploying

                  we believe that if we are given the option to filter only permission sets for the comparison, there should be some type of validation ensuring that you are also including dependencies such as custom objects, apex classes etc so that we don't make the assumption that filtering permission sets only in the comparison will include all dependencies

                  • 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!

                    • When exporting from the comparision reports page, the currently selected items should show in the exportt

                      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.

                      • Test job triggered by CI job

                        Test jobs are only configured on time basis. When developer commit some changes and it will be deployed, but tests will be done on a time basis in 2 hours for example, so he should wait to know weather tests are passed or not. Or ask the release manager to run tests manually. So, this feature is must have improvement.

                                  It would be great if Gearset can surface which Apex trigger has 0% code coverage when a deployment fails.

                                  • Live chat button overlays action button

                                    Not sure how you resolve this one without moving either button. Maybe do something similar to what is done in the Diff view (where the action buttons are displayed in a row below the content).

                                    Another option would be to have the live chat in the header navigation to toggle the feature on / off?

                                    Not sure...Just noticed that it gets in the way sometimes.

                                    • Filter standard vs custom objects

                                      We sell a managed package and will never include standard objects in a comparison, and absolutely not in source control. When I'm running a compare against source control to check for changes, it will show all of the standard objects as "custom objects" which is not correct. I should have a way to filter out standard objects from the comparison.

                                      • Have a timer on the compare page to indicate how long the compare is taking

                                        Sometimes a compare can take us 30-45 minutes depending on the complexity of the org. I would like to see a running timer on this page of how long the compare is taking. I don't expect it to say how long is left, just how long it has taken so far. This will help to highlight if any abnormalities are happening, ie. if it's taking a very long time and is only at the Downloading phase for example.

                                        • Avoid going to Setup | Deployment status on "validate deployment don't run any tests"

                                          If you are deploying to PROD and
                                          a) You have Apex classes in your deployment
                                          b) You choose Validate Deployment - Don't run any tests

                                          The Validation will fail and Gearset will tell you to check the target org Setup | Deployment Status where as suggested, the most likely cause is test coverage failures.

                                          This is in fact true but it seems that Gearset could warn you before acting on a PROD deployment with non-test apex classes and 'don't run any tests' that this will be guaranteed to occur and give you a chance to reconsider your choice before wasting…
