  1. When pushing Workflow rules and associated actions, gearset mistakenly says target objects do not exist

    When pushing work flow rules and associated actions, if you do a compare with only workflow, then gearset prompts an error indicating that the target objects do not exist in the destination and that the rules should be removed from the package for the deployment to be successful. In this case, it told me Account, Event and Opportunity do not exist in the target. Including other metadata from the referenced fields resolves the issue.

    • Optimize comparison list view

      The comparison view contains a list view in a scrollable area with an line item for every metadata item in the comparison. Depending on the comparison, this list can be exorbitantly long (10k+ lines). Displaying this many elements on screen is extremely inefficient, and causes browsers to lock up when selecting the "check all" check box (because it results in thousands of incremental manipulations in the DOM). This issue also causes mobile browsers to crash when more than a thousand or so items show in the comparison results.

      There is a common pattern for handling long lists like this, in…

      • Friendly name and details should also clone and pre-populate once you clone a deployment or at least have an option to

        In my eyes, this is a bug. When we clone a deployment, we have to copy and paste the friendly name and details into the new one. Most times we're performing a clone, it's when we're just moving to a new environment. We typically go from sandbox to staging and then sandbox to production after the changes have gone through QA and UAT. We deploy from the original location to mitigate problems.

        You could ultimately change your deployment processes to where a deployment is a record that can be open or closed. If it's open, you can change the source…

        • Allow default repo to be set in Manage Connections and use in Comparison

          see https://gearset.uservoice.com/forums/283474-help-us-improve-gearset/suggestions/17292778-remember-a-default-github-repo

          This does not appear to work.

          1. Setup connection to source control GitHub that your user credentials includes multiple repos (in my use case, there are about 100)
          2. Do a Comparison, in the target list of repos, you will see all 100
          3. Select your repo (say repo #77). Do the Comparison
          4. Logout
          5. Login. Repeat step 2.

          RESULT: repo#77 is not defaulted. You have to reselect it.

          Either fix the aforementioned issue so the repo you most recently used is 'sticky' or allow specification of a default repo on the Connections page for each repository…

          • After choosing source/target connection: show friendly name.

            When we are selecting source/target we can see the friendly name in the dropdown list.

            After the selection is made we can see only the username. It would be easier visually confirm that correct connections are are selected if the friendly name was shown next to the username.

            • Better error message when refreshing draft deployments created by another user

              Currently, if source control is either source or target and User A creates a draft deployment bit user B wants to refresh that draft deployment, you get an error message: "Error occurred during operation: Determining API versions - An unknown error occurred."

              As this capability isn't currently supported by Gearset, there should be an error message when the refresh comparison button is clicked saying" Refresh is not possible when Source control is involved except by original creator of the draft deployment"

                • Deployment of pre-valided package doesn't include accurate test counts

                  We did a deployment last week and noticed that as part of the deployment report that went out that it stated the Tests Run was zero. We did a pre-validation the day before where we ran all tests with all passing.

                  Could this test section on the deployment report again include/include the pre-validation tests that were run for the deployment?

                  • Include a field's permission if the field is flagged as a missing dependent component

                    If a field is identified as missing from the deployment and the user agrees to include it, the corresponding field's permission should also be added.

                      • Include custom metadata type (__mdt) listviews

                        Not sure this is a bug or a limitation in the V40.0 SFDC Metadata API but it would appear that Custom Metadata Type (__mdt) listviews are not included in the Comparison (default 66). List Views on other Sobjects are included. Hence they can't be deployed

                        • 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.

                          • View email templates that are part of a managed package folder in comparison

                            Hey guys,

                            I am not sure if this is an actual issue or not but I will ask the question to see if I am missing something :)

                            When comparing email templates, the compare will return both email templates and folders. I have noticed that in my case, email templates that are part of a managed folder do not return. We can see the folder and sync the folder settings, but no templates. If we move the templates to a non-managed folder we can see the templates. Has anybody encountered anything similar?

                            Thanks!

                            Richard

                            • Monitor orgs - false positives in Clean Rules

                              It would appear that in the default 64 comparison set when using Monitor Changes, that SFDC may be returning fieldmappings in non-deterministic order when custom cleanrules are in effect as when Day n-1 org is compared against Day n org, the same cleanrule's fieldmappings are displaced some number of lines away causing a false positive. The obvious workaround is to remove Cleanrules from the metadata to compare but this means one can't detect true variances anymore.

                                When I remove a page layout from my Git repository (the file and the package.xml entry) and then do a comparison to an org that it still exists in, Gearset fails to detect a deletion. It doesn't even show up in the All objects tab. It happened to me yesterday and then I just reproduced it now.

                                • Properly handle SFDC change of API name for Order "Activate" button on layouts

                                  CustomObject 'Order' Page layouts from orgs created from orgs prior to V39 may have in the layout metadata <excludebuttons>Activate</excludeButtons>

                                  For V39 (and possibly earlier) orgs, 'Activate' is no longer the OOTB API name for the button with label 'Activate'. The button API name is ActivateOrder. Hence, deployment fails with error "In field: excludeButtons, no such standard action:Activate"

                                  There is no workaround except to exclude the Order layout from the Gearset Selected Objects. This is not a good workaround for a commonly-used OOTB SFDC Standard object.

                                    • False positives in managed code

                                      When I enable comparing managed packages (e.g. when I have added a field to a managed custom object), I get lots of false positives saying that there are differences in apex code.

                                      On the source org, the code is show as "(hidden)"; on the target it is shown as empty. And Gearset lists this as a change.

                                      Obviously, I know it's not a change, but it adds a lot of clutter to the comparison view.

                                      • "Changed on" date on source control side of comparison does not show

                                        We have no way of knowing when the files were last changed on the source control side. Tried only with BitBucket though.
