  1. Explicitly set object-level permissions, even if these are omitted from XML provided by Salesforce API

    Valerio recommended that I post this suggestion following a discussion on 29 August 2019.

    Issue reference:
    https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/3226459-a-note-on-deploying-custom-object-permissions-on-new-profiles

    Issue:
    1. Remove all object-level access for "Lead" from a custom profile in a source org
    2. Deploy this profile to a target org
    3. The profile in the target org will have access to the "Lead" object ENABLED, because this access is included in the Standard User profile (see document link above)

    The workaround (deploying and then deploying again) is cumbersome and not always practical, e.g. if making automated, one-step deployments outside of Gearset. Failing to make a second deployment means that…

  2. Support package.xml filtering when using Git comparison with a SFDX folder structure

    When using a git repo with a SFDX folder structure + package/xml (in the /manifest folder) gearset dos not take into account elements in the package.xml when checking the option (filter with package.xml)

  3. Provide ordering for metadata elements when committing to version control

    When metadata is retrieved from Salesforce the order of child nodes is not guaranteed and results in false-positive changes when committing to version control. Usually this will be something simple like workflow actions/criteria appearing out-of-order which can be compared manually. However, recently we've noticed entire profiles being committed with *every* permissions element out-of-order, resulting in a change set with ~20k lines where the *actual* change is impossible to visualize.

    Gearset should provide a feature to 'order' child XML elements alphabetically by name in order to provide consistent commits to version control and eliminate false-positives.

  4. Include support for new metadata type 'PermissionSetGroup' (Winter '20)

    As feature has moved from pilot to beta in Winter '20 release, looking for support in differencing and deploying the new 'PermissionSetGroup' metadata type.

  5. Optimize "Refresh Comparison" to only pull metadata that has been changed since the last comparison

    Currently, clicking Refresh Comparison does not optimize the comparison in any way, it just allows you to skip selecting some of the configuration steps from running a new comparison.

    This means that it takes the same amount of time actually comparing the orgs.

    It would be nice if on clicking of "refresh comparison" the logic didn't run a full compare and instead just looked at metadata that had been changed since the last compare in order to reduce the comparison time.

  6. Dependency Enhancement for App Menu metadata

    Currently, when we compare App Menu metadata, the "Depends On" tree is empty, even though it definitely has dependencies on connectedApps and customApplications.

    Please add dependency analysis for App Menu metadata,

  9. Allow for selecting/unselecting Filter by Package.xml

    When doing a clone or a refresh comparison today the ability does not exist to add or remove the option of whether you are filtering by package.xml. I would like to see this added.

    For us what might occur at times is that we have a release occur where this is accidentally selected and we find that a number of items are missing and due to this being selected. We have no way to remove the selection and have ended up starting over. One of a number of scenarios where it would be nice to have the option to do…

  11. Warn the user of unsaved changes to an org compare filter

    It would be nice if we got a warning if we have selected specific components in a filter but havent saved the filter when we hit OK. I've lost a lot of work on a custom filter because I forgot to hit 'Save' - I would have thought it would auto-save when you hit OK.

  12. The comparison screen takes too long to load and times out with large packages.

    With large packages the comparison screen takes too long to load, >15 min, and can cause Chrome browser to time out. Can we have an option to not load the details of the differences in the bottom panel, only object names and then click a button to download only difference for a particular item on-demand? I normally don't need to see the diff

  13. Create a way to apply a regex to all currently selected metadata types when building a filter

    The regex support you currently have doesn't really allow for complex (multi-match) regex matching, which is probably ok

    If I select, say 116 of the 124 metadata types identified, and then have to apply a regex pattern to each one, it gets pretty tedious. Click-paste-apply 116 times, and then 116 again for the other half of the complex match. I'd write a tool to automate configuring a filter in gearset. :)

    If I "select all" then deselect the 8 types i don't want, and THEN apply a regex to all types, that would be pretty great.

  14. Segregate metadata changes due to SFDC release

    If I compare my production org to a preview sandbox that has been upgraded to the new release, I see some changed, new, and deleted items that appear to be due to the upgrade. For the most part it probably doesn't make sense (or isn't possible) to deploy those differences in either direction, so it would be nice to be able to exclude them or have them flagged somehow.

    For example, in Winter '20 several fields were added to the OpportunityContactRole object. They show up as custom fields in the comparison. If I try to deploy them to production, the…

  15. Show summary of selected Filter conditions

    Would like ability to select a saved filter and see a summary of all the 'checked' filter conditions in it. Useful in verifying a filter or shared filter before using it.

  16. Namespace Mapping for Managed Packages

    We are an ISV partner with a managed package we sell to lots of customers. That means our package is namespaced. However with a distributed development team and multiple dev orgs, all source code is not namespaced, and is maintained in source control (github) without namespaces. Only upon unit test and promotion to the package org, does the namespace get added. This results in two basic problems (and others). 1) comparisons between unit test and package result in almost everything being flagged as "changed" due to the namespace, and 2) all aura components are always flagged as "new" when they…

  17. Mark items as already reviewed earlier

    Today we are gearing up for a major deploy so we are deploying many different changes into gitHub. It would be nice to be able to mark whole sections of content as already reviewed such that any new comparison could ignore all of that content. Then we could look at only the new or newly changed/deleted content.

  18. When opening a draft/clone allow updating the content filter *before* the comparison

    When opening a draft deployment or cloning a deployment, please allow the option to update the content filter *before* running the comparison. As things are now, we have to wait for the comparison to finish before we can change the filter, and then we have to wait for the comparison to run again.
