  1. Refresh specific item in comparison through context menu

    It would be great to refresh a specific item within a comparison that I know has changed since the last comparison.

  2. The Action Order in the XML should follow the sortOrder

    Sometimes there is a difference between a object because the order of the platformActionListItems are different. Sometimes an item with order 0 comes first, but it is possible that an item with 9 comes first. This is probably an error in Salesforce API, but Gearset should order this list before the comparison so 0 will always be the first item.

  3. Avoid spurious differences in LeadConvert

    SFDC seems to retrieve the lead convert settings in non-deterministic order between orgs . Display only true changes/adds/deletes rather than differences in ordering of the mappings as they make no difference to the runtime execution of Lead Conversion

  4. Add "Manage Custom Filters" button next to Metadata Comparison Filter dropdown

    I find myself always going into the "Manage custom filters" screen as it allows you to see what metadata you're including and even change the selected filter.

    To get to that screen always requires a click on the drop down (Metadata Comparison Filter) and then another click at the very top on "Manage Custom Filters".

    It'd be great if the "Manage Custom filters" gear/button was displayed on the main UI next to the "Metadata Comparison Filter" to save time (avoid clicking on the dropdown) and allow users to quickly get to the Manage Custom filters screen which contains all you…

  5. Add a way to "Save" or "Save As" updated filters when in the Refresh Comparison window (like you can in the Compare and Deploy window)

    When in the Refresh Comparison window, it seems there's no way to "Save" or "Save As" the updated filters. Looks like you can only access that feature via Manage Custom Filters from the Compare and Deploy screen

    Any chance we could get that added? It would be super useful!

  6. Consistently position the Source > Target UI element

    In the various screens of a comparison + deployment, the Source > Target element jumps around:
    - Top of the page for the Comparing... page
    - Middle of the page for the Compare page
    - Top-left for the Comparison Summary page
    - Top-right for the Deployment page
    - Middle of the page for the Deployment Results page

    During this process, I am constantly double-checking to make sure that I am using the correct Source & Destination environments so as not to make a mistake. Instead of scanning the entire screen to see where this is annotated, I would like to…

  7. Display more workflow subcomponents under Workflow for Metadata filter

    Currently, two sub-components display under Workflow when selecting metadata types within a filter.


    1. WorkflowAlert

    2. WorkflowRule

    There's more sub-components than those two and I'd argue that there's two that are frequently used that should be included for visibility


    1. WorkflowFieldUpdate

    2. WorkflowOutboundMessage

    There's 2 more, but these may be used less frequently and not needed for visibility


    1. WorkflowKnowledgePublish

    2. WorkflowTask

  8. csv export comparison CSV doesn't identify source and targets

    When you export a comparison (e.g. selected items), the CSV has column headers for Source and Target. So, someone looking at the CSV can't tell what the source was (org friendly name/repo+branch name) or what the target was (" ")

    The file name identifies the source org by xxx@example.com .... but no friendly name which is key when source is a scratch org. No identification of the target at all in the csv file name.

  9. Allow


    1. Once the comparison is completed. Gearset should tell us which commit Id belongs that changes.


    2. Gearset should allow the users to deploy per branch. User will be allowed to cherry pick commit Ids then that commit ids will be package and able to deploy it.

  10. Avoid manual selection of component while compare and deploy

    Good to have options in Gearset to auto select changed metadata files(changed as a part of pull request) while doing Compare and deploy.
    Imagine one pull request number 5377 (which is changing 200 metadata files moved from 1 branch to another branch).
    Now while doing compare and deploy It is good to have options which auto select this 200 metadata for comparison. This can help me from this manual selection of 200 metadata files which is very time consuming.

  11. add files to a gitignore during Suggested Fixes

    When I make a comparison, Gearset will helpfully check the deployment and offer suggestioned fixes, such as... exclude object components belong to managed packages. now, i can agree to that solution and exclude those files, the problem is they persist every time i make a comparison, they always show up as changes. Would it make sense to be able to add them to a list of ignored changes?

  12. Spurious difference CustomObject excludedstandardbuttons ordering

    SFDC has a tendency from release-to-release of reordering the excludedStandardButtons for a CustomObject. If you are using source control populated under Vx and SFDC changes the ordering in Vx+1, your custom objects all show up as Changed in the differences viewer.

    Because these are "excluded" buttons, their ordering in the XML file doesn;t matter to the end deployment and the variance should be suppressed in the difference viewer.

  13. Use exact filters of Automated Job

    Currently automated CI job filters are unique to that job and not available as a filter for manual jobs.
    Ability to use the exact current job filter as a filter outside of the CI job.
    Ability to to clone the CI Job filter into a new named filter.

  14. Show/Flag what unlocked package elements are getting updated on Monitoring Jobs

    When you look at the details of a monitoring job there is a field called "Packages Afftected" that shows green when is 0 and orange when >0.

    There is a description that says...

    Unlocked packages have been modified. View the comparison to see details.

    However, when you look at the details there is nothing there to see what unlocked package element was modified. So the warning it is not very helpful at all.

    Can this be implemented so that the warning is actionable.

  15. 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…

  16. 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)

  17. Move the configured regex filters to the top of the scrollable pane (currently at bottom) of

    Move the regexes to the top of the pane so one can see they exist and not have to guess that they exist at the bottom of the pane.

    Note the example, selects all custom objects - this is useful for ISVs

    example: For custom object, there are 100+ entries for standard and custom objects. If you add a regex, it appears at the bottom of the scrollable pane, after all the enumerated objectnames. Coming back into a custom filter, it is not obvious that you had even created a regex as you would have to know to scroll to…

  18. swapping source and target after compare

    I was doing compare between our 2 orgs (Source: UAT, Target: DEVSTG) and I realized that I got the order wrong. Should be (Source: DEVSTG, Target: UAT). But the compare has already completed.

    I wish there is a way to just flip (swap) the source and target without re-comparing as it takes some time comparing between orgs.

  20. Include the local file name on all the results screens

    When you choose a local file to use as compare, on every subsequent screen the only title you see is: "On-disk repository". It would be helpful to include the name of the file.
