    Remove the "run as specific user" completely from the dashboard prior to deployment (set the options to "Run as logged-in user"). Deploy, then change it back to whatever you need. Based on https://developer.salesforce.com/forums/?id=906F0000000DCJPIA4

  2. Queue Deployments

    Current State:

    A few devs have work in their individual sandboxes that are ready to be pushed to the higher .dev sandbox org

    1st Dev deploys work to .dev

    2nd Dev deployment fails because org is locked

    Idea:

    A few devs have work in their individual sandboxes that are ready to be pushed to the higher .dev sandbox org

    1st Dev deploys work to .dev

    2nd Dev deployment is queued up, 2nd Dev will be notified via email/browser when queued deployment has started

  3. add the ability to run static code analysis against an org or source control, simply click refresh button to re-run it and see results

    This will give you a "run code analysis -> see results -> fix issues -> push to source control (or an org) -> repeat" workflow.

  5. Allow PMD to be configured by uploading a xml file with rules

    We use PMD locally in our IDEs to analyse during development, and the whole team shares a rule file in xml. It excludes the ones we don't like and configures other rules.

    We can configure Gearset to do the same through the UI, but I'd rather be able to just upload the file, then I will know they are the same set of rules.

  6. Adjust dependancy on managed package versions for Apex[Class|Page]

    We've found when developing classes against managed packages the class ...meta.xml includes the package version numbers. Problem is these are fixed to the exact version installed (e.g. 9.4, 9.3 etc. example below)

    But then if the managed package is upgraded Salesforce, in its infinite wisdom, doesn't update these so when you come to deploy next time you have to go and manually update all the version numbers - or if you have a different version in another sandbox (to test the newer one) same thing.

    Seems like something a cool deployment tool could handle and offer to fix up on…

  7. Please adjust problem analyser feature to show record type changes when a picklist field value is added.

    Currently Problem analyser does not show any warnings or issues when record types are not selected for a picklist field changes( value addition). With this during deployment there is fair amount of chance that some one could easily miss record type changes. Please adjust problem analyser to account this situation and show record type changes as warnings would be beneficial.

  8. Add api version check validation

    We have experienced quite a few errors when a metadata component is developed in a sandbox that has been updated to the preview api version but production hasn't been updated to that version yet. Our entire pipeline and PR validation process works perfectly until the very last step when deploying to production. It's very difficult to deal with at that point.

  9. When Problem Analyzer adds Fields, Add Profile Permissions Too

    Currently the problem analyzer will identify missing fields. However, it doesn't prompt or allow you to add the permissions for the fields. So, you either have to go back, manually add all fields as Selected, or push the package and then go back manually and add permissions for all fields. It should prompt to add both the fields and the permissions.

  10. Support deployment of password and session policies via Gearset

    According to the Salesforce developer link https://help.salesforce.com/s/articleView?id=000349181&type=1

    Password and Session policies include a numeric code which is equal to a epoc timestamp. This timestamp will be different in each org. In order for deployment to succeed, the timestamp code in the metadata name must match the target org. Since all orgs are different, there isn't an automatic way to do this.

    Please create a feature in gearset that will automatically replace the timestamp numeric code with that of the target org so that we can use gearset to deploy password and sessions policies.

  11. Allow owners to setup delegated org access of members

    Without already having delegated access granted there is no way to rollback a deployment from another user. There should be a permission to override this.

  13. Option to have SCA results for last commit or Period, Instead of SCA for complete file

    Hi All,

    We are looking for a SCA feature so that instead of showing all the errors and warning in the whole file while doing compare or deploy, It Should only show the SCA errors and warning for the last commit or for commits during an specific time interval.

    For Example I have an existing Apex class which is having 1000 lines of code and say 100 errors are there as per GS SCA analysis. Now let’s assume I am working on that file for my current sprint and I am adding another 100 lines of code in that class.…

  14. Warn on Master/Detail deployment even without comparing Custom Fields

    If you compare Custom Fields and try to deploy something in an Object that is in a Master/Detail relationship without including the Lookup field, Gearset will warn you that the deployment will fail.

    However, if you don't include "Custom Fields" in the comparison, (for example just comparing Validations) and try to push it, you will hit an error:

    "Cannot set sharingModel to ControlledByParent on a CustomObject without a MasterDetail relationship field"

    Gearset could easily warn the user on this when trying to push a Validation Rule on a MasterDetail object, even if Custom Field was not added to the comparison.

  16. Deployment Notes Persist on Failure

    When a deployment fails, deployment notes are sometimes wiped, and it is laborious to retype them - sometimes, I'll copy and paste to Notepad before deploying because I know I'm going to have to type them again. Notes should persist, or at least be configurable, from one comparison run through successful deployment.

  17. Add a note against individual components in a draft deployment

    While comparing two Org's for differences and saving the 'Draft deployment':

    1. Files that I'm sure and fine with the differences and happy - so tick them.

    2. Files that are important to be deployed but I am yet to discuss those differences with some peers from team (dev / support). I would like to mark these (or / and) comment against these - with some useful notes (ex: impact or risk analysis related notes). Once these are discussed, I can then tick them - indicating I am happy to deploy these.

    Once I mark the files as either 1 or 2…

  19. add Dashboard owner to Problem Analysis to use user deploying instead in xml ref

    Spring '24 Salesforce added ability to change Owner on a Dashboard https://help.salesforce.com/s/articleView?id=release-notes.rn_rd_dashboards_change_owner.htm&release=248&type=5

    "Previously, you had to clone or re-create the dashboard to provide access to a new owner."

    This can now cause deployment errors when the Owner is changing between environments if the Uesr does not exist, similar to runningUser user references. Problem Analysis accounts for the latter, but not the Owner. Could we add the Owner scenario to this analysis rule?

  20. apex classes dependencies

    When deploying an apex class, check for dependencies. Currently it attempts to deploy even if there are missing fields and only reports missing fields one at a time. Very tedious to address.
