  2. 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…

  3. Distinguish between code changes and just API metadata changes for Apex in Comparison Window

    For large code comparisons, it'd be great to have the ability to see when it's just a change in API vs. actual differences. Right now, you'd have to click on every row to see what the actual change was.

  4. Ability to Compare metadata filters

    When we have too many metadata filters, it is getting hard to keep track of them and figure out the similarities between them. It would be great to have an option to compare custom metadata filters.

  5. Add a column to indicate if XML matches if order doesn't matter

    See this link: https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/2413367-why-is-xml-order-of-some-metadata-in-the-comparison-results-different

    Sometimes, the XML of an item in sandbox/production can be the same, but not in the same order. This leads to false positives showing up in the list as "changed items".

    I understand that sometimes order matters (eg: in picklists) but maybe there could be an additional column which shows if there are no differences if you ignore order? Maybe even a setting to turn the column on and off so it's not confusing?

  6. 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

  7. 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. Ignore sfdx-project.json file in order to compare code using Metadata API structure

    I need use the sfdx-project.json file in order to integrate with VS
    code, but using Metadata API structure.
    Apparently, Gearset is looking for this file to define if is a metadata API or SFDX structure,

    So I need a ignore looking for this file, in order to compare as metadata API structure.

    Thank you.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
