  1. Allow exporting of custom filter settings

    I have some regexes configured specifically for continuous integration, changing these would likely break our CI process. I would like to be able to export a JSON or YAML (or whatever sensible text based format) of my filter configuration, so I can easily view which metadata I'm selecting and excluding through regex, and possibly commit this file to source control.

    This is primarily because our team shares filters, and I'd hate to lose the configuration because of someone mucking up.

  2. Display Permission Set changes as one entry

    When working with Permission Set changes, it sometimes would be useful to see them grouped by Permission Set instead of being disaggregated by field. For example, we are migrating from using Profiles to Permission sets to grant all access. Currently, if we make changes to many (>100) fields in two different Permission Sets, we have to review many (>100) entries. Also, grouping by permission set would allow us to deploy changes to one Permission Set while ignoring the other.

  3. Individual Assignment ruleEntry

    Please Allow us to Deploy individual Assignment ruleEntry rather than the whole file/set, similar to components in other objects, sharing rules.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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…

  8. Use package xml to populate metadata filter

    I suggest to add the ability to upload the package.xml manifest files to populate the metadata filter before the comparison step of an org to git or org to org deployment.

    A lot of Salesforce developers use package.xml files locally to deploy some parts of the functionality in order to speed up the deployment process.
    Currently, Gearset allows you to select the components via Custom Filters, but it is slow to select about 20 components manually. Uploading the package manifest from the local machine can speed up the process very much,

  9. 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…

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  13. Add support for the WorkSkillRouting metadata type

    WorkSkillRouting is a key object in the configuration of Skills-based Routing for omni-channel (using Attribute Setup, not apex class), please add support for this object to enable comparison and deployment.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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?

  18. Options to pick only selected custom labels metadata for salesforce.

    Since the custom labels metadata can’t be picked individually, the Gearset compare and validate process would pull in all custom label changes. This would be a concern if we want to withhold any particular custom labels from being pushed to higher environment.

  19. 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. 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.
