  1. include the Name/ID of the Deployment from Salesforce into the Deployment Report generated by Gearset

    Include the name/id in the deployment detail page within Salesforce in the Gearset deployment report so we can trace and match those details to a deployment run in Gearset.

    • Allow transfer of org ownership between users

      I need to set up monitoring against an org that is owned by a user who is no longer active or licensed in the system. It would be incredibly helpful to be allowed to transfer ownership of these orgs between users, rather than requiring someone to delete the org and recreate it under the different owner.

      • Provide reporting capabilities for Deployment History

        Our executive sponsor for Gearset has asked me to provide him with some metrics around our Gearset usage. Specifically, we would like to be able to have access to some of the data that already exists in the Deployment History section, but in a format where we could report on it. Ideally, we'd be able to show how many deployments to production, how many components deployed in those packages, frequency of production deployments in a given timeframe, etc.
        This would be a very valuable feature for us so that we can ensure our executive leadership team is briefed on the…

        • Stamp a validated package with the username of the person who clicked 'Validate'

          Currently, a validated package is created by the owner of the draft deployment package, even if someone else was the one to actually press the 'Validate' button. I would like to have the username of the person who actually pressed validation to be noted somewhere in the validated package for auditing purposes.

          This would help us be compliant with processes where we need a record of separation of responsibilites bewteen users.

          • test class not captured in deployment history

            It would be nice to capture whatever test classes ran for code coverage deployment of classes/triggers in the deployment summary in the Test Results section. You already have a section for this test results so why not add the class names used in the report. We have come across many classes deployed without their appropriate test classes and it is hard tracking/documenting which test classes were used to deploy these as there are no documentations in the class.

            • Notify Slack when deployment is successful

              I would like to inform Slack on when a manual deployment is successful or failed. It will tell me what the source environment and what was the destination environment. It will also tell me if what the success/fail ratio of the tests that were run.

              • Ability to search Deployment History for specific metadata

                On the "Deployment History" tab, the filter dialog filters on the visible friendly name and items like that. What I would like to do is enter a specific metadata name and have the list filter down to deployments where that specific metadata name was a part of the deployment. This would be useful when getting the question, "when was xyz last deployed?"

                • Be able to start immediately a JOB (CI/Unit Tests/Monitoring)

                  Add a button to start it immediately. Currently only solution is to change the executing time!

                  • test Monitoring overview - show "is running" + stats

                    On the Test Monitoring Overview page; you should be able to see at a glance whether the test is running and how many methods have run vs total

                    Reason this comes up is if you establish a Unit Test run for your developer sandbox org, then you can't run (some) tests from your IDE against the same org "ALREADY_IN_PROCESS Test already enqueued"

                    A quick glance at the Test Monitoring Overview would tell you if you need to wait 1 minute vs 20 - and guide your activities accordingly

                    • Org Management/Oversight Dashboard

                      I would really benefit from a dashboard option. A single place where I could see my CI Job history, Unit Testing Jobs and Monitoring/Backup history for all/a subset of my orgs.

                      I am using Gearset more and more to manage the state of my org's metadata, so it would be nice to be able to see it all in one place.

                      • CI Validation Job report should show version of metadata API used for CI

                        A nice-to-have UX feature would be to echo the metadata API version used in the CI Job on the Validation Errors report (or any CI report). This can be used to aid in troubleshooting

                        • Allow Monitoring Jobs on Source Code Repositories

                          Currently, Enterprise users can create monitoring jobs on sandboxes, so that they may be notified when a sandbox's metadata changes. It'd be great to be able to perform the same monitoring action against source code repositories (GitHub!).

                          An example use case would be detecting when undesired metadata types enter into the repository. This is important because CI jobs will fail on certain metadata types, so we want to ensure that they never make it into source to begin with. Additionally, our business has decided that some metadata types should never be captured into source.

                            • Ability to have automated process to maintain field list in Production environment

                              With GDPR, companies are required to provide justifications for all data that they collect. In Salesforce this means being able to identify why all fields in the system exists, categorize fields as PI, and provide business justifications. The ability to keep a list of current fields in a production instance of Salesforce that includes alerts when new items are added, or ability to sync that list out to another tool like Smartsheet, where other business users like a legal team would have visibility, would be incredibly useful.

                              • Add an Ignore option for change alerts

                                Sometimes metadata comes back from Salesforce in a different order, which makes it look like there was a change when there really wasn't any. It would be nice to have a way to flag such comparisons as Ignored so I know I looked at them and decided that they didn't need to have any further action.

                                • Custom text within automated emails

                                  I simply want to be able to add some lines of text to the emails that are triggered.

                                  In our case this would simply be to let the team know the deployment was complete please proceed with any manual steps for example. In our org this would simply save a step for the release manager to have to trigger an email stating this and be included in the email triggered by gearset.

                                  This functionality might also play out nicely that we could have some more specific text around the test jobs that we trigger. For example, we have thought to…

                                      It would be great if there was a way to report out by user on the total number of Deployments, Comparisons, Validated packages. I see you have it on the portal, but I am not able to extract the data to analyze it.

                                      • Auto-generate deployment note and git commit message

                                        When Gearset makes a commit, it defaults to a blank deployment note and blank git commit message. Although I can edit this , it would be awesome if you can merge in details from the deploy to the commit (like components changed, what salesforce user made the change etc)

                                        • Would like the ability to print the current comparison for selected objects before deploying

                                          I would like the ability to print the current comparison for selected objects before deploying to use for documentation purposes.
