  1. Problem Analyzers don't evaluate changes made from other Problem Analzyers

    Even though this example has an easy workaround, it does seem like a scenario which could present issues in other deployments.

    In the scenario where a standard application that doesn't exist in the target (ex. Sandboxes and LightningInstrumentation) is included in a deployment (along with its permissions), there's 2 problem analyzers that come into play

    1. "Remove standard application additions/deletions from deployment"

    2. "Remove items which reference the listed components which are not available in the target"

    When both metadata types are selected (application and permission) only #1 is flagged. This means Gearset removes the standardApplication, but leaves the references to the…

  3. Suppress "changed on" datetimes in difference viewer where datetime is the same as the metadata retrieval datetime

    The difference viewer will show Changed on values for the current datetime for certain metadata types - probably because SFDC is returning such a value when, in fact, the source didn't change at all

    • Custom object
    • Settings
    • Standard valueset
    • Workflow rules

    displaying the current datetime of the compare run (i.e. the metadata retrieve datetime) is not helpful when trying to filter on changed date in the difference viewer (i.e. sort descending)

  4. Page Layout Deletion Not Detected

    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.

  5. The number of differences does not appear to the left of the Prev/Next buttons in XML view mode

    However, the number of differences does appear when viewing the same Apex class in APEX view mode.

  6. Gitlab Self Managed Issues

    We suspect that reading the 'weburl' response field for the specified branch from an API call to GET 'v4/projects/$projectid/repository/branches' might be causing a problem when using public Gitlab proxies.

    We suggest implementing a code change to compare the domain of 'web_url' to the self-hosted GitLab domain provided by the customers. The customer's self-hosted GitLab domain should take precedence.

  7. Allow deployment of 'Check For Matching Records' in Flows.

    As part of the new Salesforce Summer ’24 release, Salesforce have added the ability to check for matching records when using a ‘Create Records’ element. We’ve used this useful feature in various locations within our new flows to identify existing contacts for example.

    When deploying the flows using this feature between developer environments via Pipelines or Compare & Deploy in Gearset, we’ve noticed that this new setting within the element doesn’t get deployed and is switched off in the destination org.

    In the meantime, we can manually turn on this feature in the destination org.

  8. Allow disabling of "Caching metadata for faster analysis"

    Often this stage of the process seems to take much longer (upwards of an hour) than retreiving and analysing did in the first place.

    It's unclear where this is even being cached, i've been told its in my own browser but this cant be true for a CI job with no browser available.

  9. Monitoring dashboard page hangs on loading

    Often, if not always, when I first load up the monitoring dashboard it hangs on the loading wheel until I refresh. Doesn't appear to be a problem on any other page.

  10. Fix CI PR Search Bar

    The Search Bar in the CICD Pipelines appears to be using a custom matching logic that is awkward at best and outright misleading at worst. I start searching for a PBI with a term like '1093' and get 1 result, In then add an additional 3 to it ('10933') and am presented with 3 results, none of which have the term '10933' anywhere in them.

    The algorithm appears to chunk parts of the search value and then 'fuzzy match' using each 'chunk' of string. So by adding a 3 to 1093, I was all of the sudden searching for all…

  11. 'Continuous integration' menu item links (redirects) to Deployment Pipelines

    When I click on 'Continuous integration' in the left menu it goes (redirects) to Deployment Pipelines (https://app.gearset.com/deployment-pipelines?pipelineId=xxx) by default since a week or so! 👎

    I just want that menu item to keep on going to the 'Continuous integration dashboard' (https://app.gearset.com/continuous-integration).
    What's in the name (of the menu item)! 😉

  12. Prevent deployed validated packages from being deployed subsequent times

    Currently, after you deploy a validated package it no longer appears under the Validated Packages menu, however, if you still have the link for the validated package and navigate to that package it doesn't give you any indication that the package has already been deployed and allows the user to click the Deploy button again, assuming they have deploy permissions on the target org connection.

    As part of our production deployment approval process, we store the link to the validated package in our external ticketing system (https://app.gearset.com/validated-package-details?deployPackageId=<package id here>). When completing the ticket, users use that link to…

  13. Deploying from SF to Repo with unlocked packages can result in items deploying incorrectly

    When deploying from SF to a branch that has the force-app and unlocked packages, if you deploy an item that would include the object file it deploys to the unlocked package directory instead of the default app listed in the project.json. The end result is everything related to the object is moved from the force-app to the unlocked package directory.

    Steps to recreate:
    Enable source tracked sandboxes
    Create a new dev sandbox
    Create a new branch and link it to the new sandbox
    Create a new field on Contact
    Edit a search layout on Contact
    Use gearset to deploy the…

  14. create a Default Value setting on Source Control & Connections

    Reading the previous suggestions this might be a bug.

    Where a user has multiple connections to Github, Bitbucket etc. It would be good to be able to set a default connection.

    It is suggested that when you go to Compare, the last selection should be displayed. But I am not seeing that happening?

    I would expect the default Source to display, no matter what Compare I and setting.

  15. "Next" button on comparison page sometimes does not work

    Sometimes, the "Next" button on the comparison page does not work. In the Developer Console I can see a 403 response from "POST https://app.gearset.com/api/static-code-analysis", traced to "raygun.js:2016".

    In this case, I have to reload the comparison page.

    This happens quite often (I estimate 1 in 5 times).

    I don't think that it's a timeout issue (CSRF token or sth.), because just right now I only marked one file in the comparison list and wanted to proceed, and the button didn't work.

    On other occasions, I spend a lot more minutes on the comparison page, and the button works perfectly.

  16. Add new connection ends in loop

    When I add a new connection via choosing "Salesforce authentication", I need to enter the username. I click on "Authorize". Instead of a redirect to the Salesforce login screen, I see a blank page with a gearset spinner logo. But this screen takes hours and will not redirect. I'm using Firefox and the Org is a sandbox (sandbox is also selected)

  17. Changed by and Changed Date not populating from DX structure in Repository

    Using the DX/source structure in a repository (Github), no "item changed" date is shown for any metadata types in the comparison window.

    This leads to gearset not being able to provide last changed date or who last changed anything in a Source DX repository. It's left with "unknown" and makes our comparisons and selections more difficult when users rely on that information.

  18. Summary pages should always include ALL changed files

    I believe this to be a bug, but it might be intentional. In any case, the current functionality is, in my opinion, poorly conceived.

    If a user adds a deletion to a comparison between an org and git, the deleted metadata is the only item that will show up in Gearset. However, if you inspect the resulting commit in git, you will see that the metadata was deleted along with all of the profiles, layouts, etc that had to be changed as a side effect.

    I'm completely fine with Gearset detecting these dependencies and making the changes to them. It…

  19. custom object translation of the Product2 object

    The custom object translation of the Product2 object, specifically, is not behaving like the other custom object translations. So when I changed the label of this standard Object : Product2 (Set-up -> rename tabs and labels)
    i can't find it in Gearset. I have to make this change manuelly.
