  1. Store formatted JSON in source control

    The SFDC metadata API returns some items types as JSON compressed to a single line. For example, this applies to Wave dashboards (.wdash files).

    Gearset neatly expands this to a more readable when visualizing and comparing.

    However, in source control Gearset stores them in their original one-line compressed format. As a result, when doing merging and conflict resolution at the source control layer, these items are impossible to handle, as any change (whether technically conflicting or not) results in a conflict from git's point of view.

    It would therefore be great if Gearset kept the expanded format for JSON data…

  2. Show the latest commit(s) in the slack notification

    It would be extremely useful for the development team to see the last set of commits which were deployed via an automated job, so that if it breaks it is easier to tell what broke the build or if it is successful what the org has been updated with.

  4. Integrate Gearset with Bamboo

    Would be important to be able to integrate Gearset with an existing CI Tool like Bamboo, Jankins. (e.g an Bamboo Action or a generic Rest API which can be used by Bamboo or other 3rd party apps)

  5. Jira: ability to associate tickets during comparison

    Would like the ability to associate Jira tickets during the comparison process so that it can be saved to draft deployments and can continue to add as needed. Currently it appears you can only add Jira tickets after you have finalized all items for deployment.

  6. Improve detection of custom fields on Managed Package objects coming from Git

    If I have a managed package object in Git, Gearset does not recognize it as managed package code in its comparison to a Salesforce org. This is a problem since it may not recognize a change if a custom field has been added to the managed package object.

  7. Skip CI Jobs to source control when there are no changes.

    After setting up a CI job from a Salesforce sandbox to a Bitbucket repo, it looks like the CI job always runs a commit, even if there are no actual changes. It would be great to not have this happen to avoid having many commits where there are no actual changes.

  8. Implement public key authentication for source control

    Implement public key authentication for source control.

    Allow Gearset to generate a public/private key pair, and expose the public key for use in authentication to source control.

  9. Extend Jira Cloud Integration to Releases and Bitbucket

    We do the majority of our management via Jira and have it linked to Bitbucket and our test system so that we can manage everything via Jira. It would be great to extend the current integrations to more intelligently link the package to Jira tickets and the corresponding Bitbucket code and then push back to Jira the deployments in a more Jira friendly manner e.g. potentially creating/updating a Jira release for the deployment.

  11. Allow for selecting which repositories to display for github in org settings.

    It would be helpful to be able to select repositories to display in the selection under Manage Orgs. Some of our repos in Github aren't related to Salesforce deployments, and filtering those out so they don't even show in the list would be really helpful in getting to selections faster.

  12. Allow comparisons of a single commit from a VCS

    Currently, you can select a VCS repo and branch to use for comparison. It'd be great if you could select a specific commit from that branch, so that you're only looking at an atomic set of changes. This would allow for fine-grained comparison and deployment of changes.

  13. FogBugz integration for Gearset

    We'd LOVE a FogBugz integration for Gearset similar to the new Jira Integration.

  14. Allow teams to share custom git repositories

    It would be nice to be able to share custom git repositories with the entire team. At this time, each team member that does deployments needs to configure each custom git repo in Gearset. Besides requiring them to set it up, it also means I need to give each person the credentials.

  15. Support for zipping and unzipping static resources in GIT repos.

    Add support to automatically unzip zipped static resources when migrating to a GIT repo and re-zipping when migrating to SF. This would allow me to edit my static resource files without having to manually unzip them.

  16. Automatically revert PR in GitHub CI Jobs

    When a CI job fails, the bad code remains in the GitHub repo. I'd like to see a way to revert the commit/PR that caused that failure so that any CI jobs for new, unrelated, commits/PRs won't fail while the developer is working to resolve the issue.

  17. AWS CodeCommit ability to view Repos

    Today the ability is not there to allow for viewing multiple repositories within AWS Code Commit. One can view a singular repo and the branches that it contains.

    In our instance we have different repos for our various instances. We would like to be able to have the ability to go on level deeper and be able to first choose the repo, then choose the branch.

    Hit me up with any questions please.

  18. Integrate with Jenkins

    Build a Jenkins Plugin to integrate with Gearset that would allow triggering CI jobs and/or deployments.

  20. I need TeamCity to kick off a deployment within GearSet when all my auditing constraints are met.

    We currently have a deployment pipeline for our .net and Rails environments that utilize VersionOne, GitHub, TeamCity and Ansible to deploy changes into AWS.
    Due to auditing constraints we would like to use VesrionOne, GitHub and TeamCity to deploy our SF changes.
    Does Gearset interact with these tools or must it stand on it's own?
