  1. Include duplicate rules in "Disable validation rules, triggers and flows"

    Here's a powershell script I hacked-up to do this from sfdx directories in vs code:

    $duplicateRules = ".\force-app\main\default\duplicateRules"
    $temporary = -join("duplicateRulessave",[System.Guid]::NewGuid())

    Save repository versions

    New-Item -ItemType Directory -Path $temporary
    Move-Item -Path $duplicateRules*.* -Destination $temporary

    Retrieve org versions

    sf project retrieve start --metadata DuplicateRule

    Make deactivated versions

    $files = Get-ChildItem -Path $duplicateRules -Filter "*.xml"
    foreach ($file in $files) {
    $content = Get-Content $file.FullName
    if ($content -match "<isActive>true</isActive>") {
    $content -replace "<isActive>true</isActive>", "<isActive>false</isActive>" | Set-Content $file.FullName
    } else {
    Remove-Item $file.FullName
    }
    }

    Deploy deactivated versions

    sf project deploy start --metadata DuplicateRule

    Restore repository versions

    Remove-Item $duplicateRules*.* | Where-Object{!($_.PSIsContainer)}
    Move-Item…

  2. In a data deploy, allow filtering data by previously deployed parent objects.

    For example, instead of "Only deploy Opportunity records that are children of the Account.Opportunities records that are being deployed" which filters opportunities by the accounts in the same deploy. You would have two deploys. The first would deploy accounts. The second would filter opportunities by those accounts already in the target org.

    This would allow you to modularize deploys. You might want to mix and match subsets of data for specific projects. It would allow working around some of the shortcomings of the account hierarchy gearset magic. If there were transient errors (like exclusive locks) you could repeat a smaller…

  3. deploy user records via REST api

    Currently there is no way to deploy user records via Gearset because the Data Deployment feature uses the Bulk API. This is painful for those cases when we have sandbox testers that we need to move between sandboxes!! Please add the ability to deploy users via REST API.

  4. Allow filtering of records for data deployments via a SOQL

    Would like to be able to run a SOQL to select the records to base a data deployment from, in many cases we are trying to build some test data that matches specific scenarios based on fields on parent or related objects.

    The current selection of field filters doesn't give us the flexibility we need. For most of our data deployments to sandboxes today we run a data load in prod to set a field to true on the base object from a SOQL and then use that field to filter in the data deployment.

  5. Permission set changes not displaying without drilling down

    You shouldn't have to drill in to see the changes in a permission set. I was stumped b/c it showed no difference, but in reality I had to drill down to see the difference. This is bad UI

  6. Change Order of Steps for Data Deploys

    When configuring a data deployment, currently "Planning Deployment Steps" is the last step, but this is where I often encounter the "Error while planning deployment" because of recursion/etc. That means I need to back up through the previous 4 steps, adjust, and then go BACK through the related objects, data masking, disable rules steps before it will try again.

    The disable rules step in particular takes some time, making this a really tedious cycle to repeat.

    I understand needing the related objects step before validating the deployment, but if the order changed to:

    1. Select Objects,
    2. Select Related Objects
    3. Plan Deployment…

  7. Please introduce an external ID in the background as some other products do. This would make it flawless.

    Without the external ID, your solution is time consuming and prone to troubleshooting errors.

  8. Add Manage Custom Filters option when creating a CI job

    When I use options Automation -> Continuous Integration -> Dev Sandbox -> Compare and commit for deployment, there is no option to create a custom filter.
    Custom filters can only be created by using Metadata deployments -> Compare and deploy option.
    Since the following tutorial https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/6166062-promoting-your-first-features recommends to use Automation -> Continuous Integration for deployment, it would be nice if this way of deployment also had an option to create custom filter.

  9. add a column for file sizes and show a warning message if over the limit (might happen deploying content assets)

    Recently when deploying a large amount of content assets, I ran into a issue where the deployment would freeze on caching metadata for faster comparison.

    Support told me the deployment size was too large and I broke it up into smaller deployments. I suggest adding a column with file sizes and perhaps a warning message if you exceed the deployment limits.

  11. Add navigation options to the data deployment process

    We are making use of the data deployment tool to seed our sandboxes with test data. When you execute a template it always navigates you to the last step (which makes sense). There are times however that we need to go back to the 2nd step and change filter criteria. This includes several clicks and waiting for pages to load.
    Is it possible to add a navigation bar at the top that shows the various steps so you can quickly jump to one you need to update?
    ie Step 1 > Step 2 > Step 3 > etc

  12. Make filter to search through all the components which are hidden under 1st level and expand the components

    Can I ask Gearset team to add filter in compared components to search through all the components which are hidden under 1st level (e.g. custom objects or profiles).
    For example, in the filter to compare metadata I selected certain custom tab (in the profile the access to the tab was deleted), also selected certain profiles, but serching through the compared metadata list I spent hours and did not manage to find those components for deployment package.
    The same is for object access. I selected certain object, selected certain profiles - and again, it's a hard quest to find necessary components…

  14. Implement Data migration support for nCino

    nCino is a native Salesforce application for banking customers, configured using records, similar to how CPQ is configured. Deploying the data based configuration from environment to environment can be very difficult and painful. This would be a valuable feature for every nCino customer

  16. When cloning a deployment, also clone the test settings

    When I'm cloning a deployment, if in the original one I have selected specific test classes, by default have those selected again in the clone.

    Often you either need to repeat a deployment, or you'll deploy several times between instances, with the same tests.

  17. extend the GearSet public API to include Data deployments between Sandboxes and Scratch Orgs

    Allow triggering Data deployments via the public API to eliminate having to sync data manually. This also includes triggering creation of Scratch Orgs via the Gearset API so that Gearset can instantly recognize them them.

    The workflow we would like to automate is: feature branch is checked out which triggers a CI/CD system pipeline to create a corresponding scratch org, do a metadata deployment from a test sandbox, and sync data from the same test sandbox. This allows us to create on-demand full copies of the environment for purposes of E2E testing (inc. external integrations) and feature development that requires…

  18. Provide More Detailed Information on Data Deployment Summary Steps

    Currently the data deployment summary displays an elaborate interface but with very little useful information other than record counts. On the right side are Steps, but those steps do not tell the user much. I can see that in one step x records were fetched, for example, and in another step y records were fetched, but I can't see WHY.

    Example use case: I had a situation where I was filtering an object but the filter wasn't being honored (more records were being deployed than expected). I could see from the data deployment summary that one of the steps was…

  19. Add a way so we can easily integrate commits into Salesforce.

    What I mean by this is, give users the ability to create and associate commits from in Gearset to a custom Object in Salesforce.

    The commit would create a new record in Salesforce, under the custom object, let's call it 'Commits'.

    We'd be able to pass through data such as the commit status, the ID of the commit, a link to the commit itself taking us back to Gearset, the name, and author, etc, etc...

    I'd imagine this is possible through the use of the BitBucket API, however with SF teams who lack developer resources, this would be a nice…

  20. Allow record data load from CSV file

    While it is nice to deploy record data from org to org with Gearset, it would also be nice to be able to deploy data from a CSV file, with the ability to custom map the headers. Native Salesforce Dataloader has this capability, as well as many 3rd party tools out there. Please incorporate this capability into Gearset.
