  1. Filter out Custom Field differences based on Field Tracking History

    If the only difference in the field is that History Tracking is turned on, it would be nice to filter these results out.

    Running checks on our app with multiple customers, who all set history tracking differently, can create a lot of noise to filter through to find actual differences.

  2. Support deleting comparison data

    Having the comparison history is a great feature, but it would be very beneficial to be able to delete any data in the system, especially when working with a trial account. Part of testing could include working with test environments that you don't want to persist after going live. Also, peace of mind when ending the trial that your data has been removed.

  3. A count of differences could be grouped by type

    If the count of differences could be grouped by type/color that would be helpful.
    Ex: 20 differences: 5 red, 7 green, 8 yellow. It gives a better sense of how drastic the differences between Source and Target are at first glance.

  4. new comparison tool issues

    new comparison method/view has a few bugs/bad ideas

    1. when selecting a comparison pair & comparison filter on the "saved comparison pairs" page, the chosen filter does not carry through to the new screen & has to be re-applied

    2. once in the comparison screen, there is no "sele3cted" button like on the legacy page. - this is crucial to know where I'm up to with selecting the parts to release.

  5. Add support for OverrideSettings for Vlocity datapacks

    It would be great if there is a way to set up OverrideSettings https://help.salesforce.com/s/articleView?id=sf.os_build_tool_override_datapack_settings.htm&type=5 for the deployment pipeline. For example, FilterFields can be specified, so those fields are removed from the datapack before being committed to the git repo.

    This should help to reduce the number of differences in the compare view when e.g. Salesforce IDs are different or empty attributes are added.

  6. Show Created by and Created Date in Comparison view

    I'd like to see created by and created date in the comparison view. Sometimes we have multiple users working on items and I may not be the last to modify something but I am the one to deploy it and if I am the creator, I know what it is named but it makes it hard to sift down if I can only show modified by and modified date.

  7. default repository

    Allow to set a default repository when you have multiple repositories.

    1. Navigate to Compate and Deploy
    2. Select Source Control and select a VCS(in our case Gitlab Self Managed)
    3. If you have dozens of repositories they all show up on the list
    4. Need ability to specific a default repo which will be auto selected

  8. Show Metadata API version used to retrieve metadata for comparison on comparison result page

    It would save time and give confidence if the specific Metadata API version number used to retrieve the metadata was displayed on the comparison results page.

  9. Add the package Name to the page, when the package is Opened

    Currently when you Open a package like a draft deployment, the Name of the package does not appear. There is a message in top L-H 'Comparison finished' which is not very useful. Perhaps the package Name could go here. It will reduce confusion as you will be able to tell which package you have open. Thanks.

  10. Save Filtered Metadata from a Comparison View as a New Custom Filter

    When running a compare, we'll often filter the list of metadata types in the results to eliminate types we're not interested in comparing. It would be nice to save the filtered view as a new Metadata Filter for use in a future compare.

  11. Filter on UNselected items when choosing metadata to compare

    When selecting metadata to compare, there is a picklist that says "Filters" and has an option for "Selected Only." Please add a second option for "Unselected Only" so I can quickly verify that I haven't left anything out without my eyes being distracted by checkboxes and items I know I already selected.

  12. Profile Comparison within Same Org

    It would be useful to be able to compare profiles within the Same Org to allow for improved Security analysis and deployment.

    Use Case: Developer added new functionality in Sandbox and applied it to only a few of the profiles that were specific to that story. Now there is a new to expose that functionality to more users, but need an easy way of knowing which profiles are missing the needed functionality without going through each individually.

  13. Make it available to commit custom labels that are part of a managed package

    Custom Labels of managed packages do not show up in the comparison because they cannot be changed and therefore are not deployable. However, the (override) translations of these Custom Labels do show up and are deployable. It is possible to deploy & commit the translations but this poses an issue if you commit to git since gearset suggests to leave them out of the commit because they are missing a dependency. If you ignore the suggestion and commit them anyway, they'll be removed the next time the repo cleaner runs. This way, it cannot reliably be kept in git.

  14. Force-deploy Flow translations with no difference

    At the root of this, the main problem is that if you create a new flow version through the SFDC flow editor interface, the flow will have a new version of the flow translations based on the previous translations.

    But if you DEPLOY a flow, the new flow version is created WITHOUT flow translations at all.

    This would be fine, if gearset would allow us to reliably deploy the flow WITH flow translations, even if the flow translations had "no changes". (Gearset does not allow us to deploy items with no change, and sometimes doesn't even show them in the…

  15. Show "All" Different Items

    Instead of a tab showing 'All Items', even items that are the same, maybe show a tab of All Different Items, which would show New, Deleted, and Changed in a single view without having to sift through the 'All Items' for these.

  16. Add option to load missing dependeces only.

    Example:
    When I already selected metadata filter with many items, downloaded metadata, compared, checked, and clicked deploy then I am getting an error that some dependency is missing but it is metadata type that wasn't selected previously.

    Currently:
    I need to click refresh comparison select additional metadata types and reload all metadata from both sandboxes. It is very time and resource consuming with big packages.

    As a solution:
    I want to have the possibility to click a button and select on the metadata list only those that I want to add to the current package and only those should be…

  17. Support Email Template Folder metadata migration

    Metadata API for EmailTemplateFolder does not accept wildcards so you have to know the name of the folder to be able to pull it down and migrate it. Currently (as of 2-16) the Gearset product cannot pull these.

    Suggest that they add functionality to make a SOQL call to get all the folder names, at which point they should be able to pull them. Allowing for compare and deployment.

  18. Meta Comparison Filter Based on User and/or Timeframe

    It would be great if there was a way to create a metadata comparison filter, and not just filter with regard to metadata types, but also filter by which user made the change, or the timeframe when the change was made? For instance, it'd be great if I could create a filter based on changes I made within the past 30 days, or a specific timeframe. Filtering by metadata types takes very long for large orgs, even if I reduce the metadata types down to 1 or 2.

  19. Add an Undo Action/Functionality in the Comparison UI

    Add an Undo button to the comparison UI in case someone accidentally de-selects a component from the Selected Items tab. It would save time rather than having re-search for the component and lose your train of thought. You have this feature in Google Docs and sheets.

  20. Rename the Name bar in compare and deploy to : Name (api)

    Simple to implement, just a string rename...
    Rename the Name bar in compare and deploy to : Name (api)
    It would show clearly that the name displayed there is the API name, not the "label" name XD
