  1. CI job status "deploying" - add dateTime

    UX suggestion:
    On the CI jobs page...

    Currently - you see last run dateTime followed by "deploying...." if a job is currently in progress

    Suggestion: Add the dateTime when job started so user can gauge when job should finish and set expectations accordingly

    For example, in our shop, a CI job should take around 20 minutes - but if you can;t tell when it started, you can't gauge when it will finish and plan your work accordingly

  2. Enforce code coverage limits on CI jobs

    Please set it so that we can force a code coverage check on deployments (including CI). I'd like to verify on the lowers before going through to production. Might be able to do this with test cases but should be able to on deployment.

  3. Be able to switch the direction of a comparison/deployment

    Sometimes we need to reconcile changes on an object between two orgs, where some of the changes have been made in Org1 and some in Org2. Having set up metadata filters, compared and deployed required changes from Org1 to Org2, it would be nice to be able click a button to switch direction to then deploy required changes from Org2 back to Org1, without having to go through the whole process of setting up a new comparison.

  5. Allow "Rollback" if you have a user within the same org

    Rollback currently requires the user who did the deployment to enable "Deployment" user access. Instead, it would be helpful if I could use my own user, within the same org, to do the rollback.

    This would be helpful if the individual who did the first deployment is unavailable.

  8. Add an auto-save feature while building deployment packages

    As Gearset is run through a web browser, if the browser happens to freeze while a package is being built, you don't have the opportunity to save it as a Draft Deployment. An auto-save feature would allow someone to pick up where they left off, or when the last auto-save was done, without having to start from scratch.

  9. download the zip package at an earlier stage before analysis has taken place

    Download the zip package at an earlier stage before the analysis has taken place.
    In big Orgs with multiple teams working the analysis page takes sometimes to load so it would be a great addition if we can download the zip package file and modify it.

  10. Avoid going to Setup | Deployment status on "validate deployment don't run any tests"

    If you are deploying to PROD and
    a) You have Apex classes in your deployment
    b) You choose Validate Deployment - Don't run any tests

    The Validation will fail and Gearset will tell you to check the target org Setup | Deployment Status where as suggested, the most likely cause is test coverage failures.

    This is in fact true but it seems that Gearset could warn you before acting on a PROD deployment with non-test apex classes and 'don't run any tests' that this will be guaranteed to occur and give you a chance to reconsider your choice before wasting…

  11. Access to Critical Updates

    We use Gearset as our primary utility for managing various client orgs include Production and Sandboxes for Testing and Release Management. It would be great if there was also a way to access, review and potentially enable/disable any Critical Updates in any org from Gearset.

    However, I do understand that Critical Updates may not currently be accessible from the metadata API.

    Just a thought,
    Mike

  12. Provide a way to deploy push topics

    We have a push topic that we use but there is currently no easy way to deploy changes between orgs. Would it be possible to do this via Gearset?

  13. Option to validate / deploy only running test classes in deployment set

    When deploying, there's a pain point when we want to specify tests to run. It would be nice to have an option to only run test classes that are included in the deployment. Automatically identifying which test classes are in the deployment package should be fairly straight forward:
    grep -ri @IsTest ./src/classes

  14. Show status in Chrome tab title

    In Chrome, it is possible to display info even when viewing a different tab.

    For example, I see this done with financial sites when they want to show the value of a stock ticker symbol.

  15. Check for conflicts on CI

    We have a scenario where CI would be useful, but there is a risk of it making destructive changes...

    Orgs in involved are Prod, UAT, Dev.

    Ideal development path would be Dev->UAT->Prod with each deployment using Gearset.

    In the real world, admins make some changes directly in Prod. So, we also need to merge changes back from Prod->UAT to make sure that UAT is a realistic test environment.

    It would be great if we could make a CI connection from Prod->UAT which automatically deploys non-destructive changes, and notifies us if a change cannot be sent to UAT for risk of…

  16. Allow deployment of PROFILE only

    The main reason we considered Gearset was issues with deploying profiles. Half the object settings, if not more, don't come over with change sets. When attempting to use Gearset to ONLY deploy a profile, we had the same issue. So, what's the point of using GS then? When I talked with one of your technical resources he did mention that was not a common use case. I would think it would be for large organizations like ours (over 3500 employees). We may want to spin up a new profile and just deploy that with no app or any other features…

  18. Filtering by user across the app

    Filter deployment history & automated jobs to only show a specific team member's activity (e.g. mine). With large teams, the history pages can get too busy and makes it difficult to find the results I'm interested in.

  19. Rollback deployments made by CI jobs

    Manual deployments and change monitoring jobs can be rolled back. Add the same function to CI jobs in case it accidentally deploys something unwanted

  20. Cancel deployment in progress

    In Salesforce, you can cancel a deployment in progress: Maybe because a test has failed already and you don't want to bother running the rest, or because you forgot some things.

    Can we have a cancel button while a deployment is in progress in Gearset? The metadata api seems to support it:

    https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_meta.meta/api_meta/meta_canceldeploy.htm
