  1. 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)

  2. 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. 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.

  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.

  7. Ability to tell what metadata filter someone used in a compare/deployment

    For compliance, troubleshooting, and collaboration purposes it would be great to see what metadata filter a user used on their comparison

  8. Filter (regex) on Outbound Message names within Workflows in Metadata Comparison

    Our sandboxes all point to different URLs within the Outbound Message action.

    We want to include workflows in our CI job that backfills production changes into test environments.

    However, we cannot do this as there's no way to exclude outbound messages in the filter.

    In the "Metadata Comparison Filter", you only have the option to add regex or select specific items at the object level within "Workflow".

    If you apply a regex to hit the outbound message name, it doesn't actually hit that outbound message name and only searches within the object name.

    You can only use regex when you're…

  11. 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…

  13. Unscramble order of <excludeButtons> tags in Layout metadata

    Page Layouts use the <excludeButtons> element to indicate the presence or absence of standard buttons on a layout.

    But this element appears in an arbitrary order when retrieved. Unlike other metadata which gets canonicalized by sorting alphabetically.

    Gearset could sort these elements to avoid the random order causing random diffs to appear in metadata comparisons when in reality there is no difference.

  14. 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…

  15. Import list of metadata items into org comparison.

    When running a comparison, a user should be able to import a list of metadata items based on an agreed format (likely API names). This list would allow the user to save effort from copy pasting api names if they track their changes in an external system. For example, we track changes in our release system within our Salesforce production org. Our manifest items are tracked such as "custom_object__c.custom_field__c" and have statuses such as new/updated/deleted so we have a historical references of our changes. Being able to import these changes while still having the ability to select permissions/profiles/related changes would…

  16. Compare metadata by "Changed Date" for both "Source" and "Target"

    In "Compare and Deploy", is there a way to add a column for "Changed Date" for the Source item, in addition to the Target item?

    I want to select all the items which were more recently changed in the Source than in the Target. In my current large org compare-and-deploy, I see many items which are different but the one in the Target was more recently changed, so I don't want to overwrite that item in the Target.

  17. Enhance XML meta data comparison to ignore changes in XML order

    In org monitoring we frequently get notification about changes an the only thing is a change to the order of the XML elements returned.
    The XML is virtually the same but the order of elements returned changed from one day to the other.

    It makes differentiating "real" changes from those false positives time-consuming.

    It would be great if those kind of changes could be ignored or if there was an option to configure the XML comparison behavior for each monitoring job.

  18. push new profile FLS entries into the profile file in alphabetical order

    When picking up new FLS entries, by default these are added at the bottom of the list of FLS.

    This causes issues when also having save jobs picking up changes, as this can result in duplicate FLS being added to a branch.

    Please update code structuring, so new FLS is added in the correct place in the MD files.

  19. Make it easier to select all custom field translations for deployment

    Right now if you want to select translations for certain custom fields, it is necessary to expand the sub-components for each field and select the translation. The second option is to go to the custom object and expand the sub-components in order to check translations which will include all the custom field translations for this object.
    It would be helpful to get a way to select the translations for specific custom fields in the deployment.

  20. Don't allow duplicate fields in comparison.

    If I have a field with name example category. Somehow the same field has been added to the object xml file it needs to throw an error at the time of comparison.
