  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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. (this would be something like grep -e 'this' -e 'that')

    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…

  7. Allow filtering by Deployment Stage/Metadata Subset during comparison

    This Gearset article describes some very logical phases for performing a large deployment:
    https://docs.gearset.com/metadata-deployment-guides/splitting-a-complex-deployment-into-stages

    It would be nice if there were built-in comparisons to show each subset of metadata.

    For example if you were on phase 1 of the deployment you could filter your comparison to just "Data Tier" and Gearset would pre-filter the relevant metadata.

  8. When viewing comparisons, allow the "Export All..." to utilize existing filters

    When viewing a comparison... I have various filters set to exclude certain differences like "Reports, "Permission Sets". It would be nice if you provided an option on the "Export All..." page to either export everything (disregard filters) like it does now, or to respect any filters that currently exist on the comparison so that I only see the values shown on the page based on my filters.

  9. Suggest related metadata for selected types in filter

    Gearset provides some very useful documentation on the importance of including groups of related metadata in a filter.

    https://docs.gearset.com/metadata-deployment-guides/using-gearset-to-deploy-profiles

    It would be very helpful if the Manage Filters dialog implemented these suggestions. For example, when a Profile is included in the filter, the user should be prompted to also select Profile Password Policy, Profile Session Setting, External Data Source, Apex pages, Layouts, and Custom Objects. Otherwise, the likelihood of Gearset assembling an accurate Profile without all of the related components will be slim.

    Gearset obviously has deep knowledge of metadata semantics and dependencies. The Manage Filter page needs to reflect…

  10. Show *all* matching items on All Items, even if they haven't been changed.

    I couldn't find a field that I was looking for today, despite searching for it specifically, because it was hidden inside it's parent object. I understand that the reason for this was something to do with there being no difference on the field (and I appreciate that the reason is to avoid clogging up the screen!), but if you're searching for a specific field, I think it should really show up...

    Took me bothering someone on live chat to figure out what was going on.

  11. Selection Count Mismatch

    The Selection count on ‘Compare and Deploy’ page doesn’t match with ‘Items Selected’ on ‘Draft Deployment’ when a draft deployment is opened. Having this in sync will help user that all selections are going in the deployment.

  12. Be able to exclude single items from comparison

    E.g. If I generally want to include all Custom fields for all Objects in the comparison, but there’s one specific field that I don’t ever want to send across to the target org, it’ll keep popping up and I’ll have to uncheck it each time.

  13. Track Items Added to Draft Packages

    It would be nice to be able to see which items within a comparison are part of Draft Packages. We have a need to build multiple packages from a single Comparison of Instances. This can be done by creating many Drafts, but it is sometimes difficult to know if items have been added to a draft package already. If we could visually see this, it would allow us to generate and confirm our packages much faster.

  14. Show the Label as a column in the comparison screen

    At present the comparison screen, Name column, only shows the information from the API name, but not the Label (as seen in Setup > Object Manager > Label column).

    When the Label is wildly different from the API name, is would be super useful to have the Label displayed as a column, instead of having to find it in the XML viewer.

  15. Allow the ability to "uncheck" No DIfference items on the Selected Items tab

    When cloning previous deployments, there are may cases where items may have been previously deployed, so the now would show as "No Difference". Currently these items can not be unselected for the deployment. It would be useful to be able to remove these from a current deployment to keep the deployment clean.

  17. Show rows that have no set "Changed On" date when applying a date filter.

    Currently the moment you deselect a single specific date, all blank dates are also filtered out.

    I would expect only the items with the given date be removed from the list.

    This has become apparent now that the sort order of dates in the pulldown bug has been fixed.

  18. show which deployment each metadata was a part of when doing a bulk clone.

    When doing a bulk clone, each metadata should show what previous deployment it was a part of as to allow us to verify that the bulk clone worked. Another use case is that it would allow us to find a deployment we know has changed and be able to remove or change the metadata quickly.

  19. Cache deployment inspection results

    It would be great if deployment inspection results were cached, such that the results for an identical set of metadata are available without spending the time to recheck everything.

    Use case: A comparison is performed and all changes selected. Deployment inspection is performed and recommendations are made for items to add/exclude. I select a subset of recommendations, and move forward with validation. The validation fails. The same comparison is reopened and again all metadata is selected (with the intention of selecting more of the add/export recommendations resulting from the inspection). At this point, the inspection is rerun, even though the…

  20. Add an option to use a custom "Gearset format" for the source control output

    The XML that comes from Salesforce is weirdly bundled together. When changes are made it's really hard to reconcile two branches in source control when merging.

    When comparing, Gearset nicely decomposes changes into smaller chunks. So instead of putting that back into the usual XML, an option to store that "internal format" and even just stick it as JSON or similar.

    After all - it'll be Gearset reading it back in to compare to an org next time, and smaller changes will be easier to merge as they won't conflict inside horrendously large XML files
