  1. 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.

        • bug -- Refresh comparison with a selected item that on the refresh is no longer changed

          If you have a piece of metadata that was changed on a comparison then a subsequent comparison using the 'Refresh Comparison' button. The selected item is still selected and unable to be deselected.

          • Provide the option to skip problem analysis

            Sometimes during a complicated deployment I need to try a few different strategies to get things to work. For example, I may need to just send up one piece or set of metadata up first.

            The problem is, each time I do this, I have to wait for problem analysis to complete, which takes a couple minutes. Normally during a deployment I do want problem analysis to run, but if I want to quickly send up a single object, I have to wait a few minutes while Problem Analysis runs, and the time waiting adds up.

            Maybe a quick deployment…

            • Filter out Custom Field differences based on Field Tracking History

              If the only difference in the field is that History Tracking is turned on, it would be nice to filter these results out.

              Running checks on our app with multiple customers, who all set history tracking differently, can create a lot of noise to filter through to find actual differences.

              • 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…

                • Compare active versions of flows (processes)

                  When comparing flows (processes) between environments, Gearset appears to try to match on flow version number, even though different environments are likely to have different numbers. It seems like it would probably be more helpful if the comparisons were between just the active versions.

                  • 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.

                      • When deploying just a Visualforce page, don't automatically run Apex tests

                        When deploying just a Visualforce page via a Salesforce change set, the default option is to not run Apex tests. Gearset should mimic that default behavior.

                        • Refresh Comparison should have an option: "Selected Files only"

                          A common use case is:
                          1. Compare default(66) source and target
                          2. Select some files
                          3. Deploy
                          4. Get some error indicative of either missing file or out-of-date file(s)
                          5. Fix file(s) in underlying org/source branch.
                          6. "Back to results" Optionally mark additional files as selected.
                          7. "Refresh Comparison"

                          This takes too long, you just want the selected files to compare (and really, just get on with deploying). You don't want to wait for both source and target metadata to load and compare. You don't want to uncheck/check specific metadata components that represent your selected files. You just want a…

                          • Error while deploying dashboard component using Changeset / Gearset / ANT

                            This is a common error received during deployments:

                            Error: Metric, gauge, or table dashboard component missing indicatorLowColor attribute (line 70, column 33)

                            This is a suggestion to Gearset team for there feature Deployment analysis if they would pick this error in advance before deployment.

                            Observation: This issue occurs when the Dashboard is created in Lightning. (I cannot confirm though)

                            Resolution:

                            Downloaded package.xml and component

                            Basically, after I pulled the dashboard metadata from source org, I opened it and found the
                            <componentType>Table</componentType> tag, and right under it I added this:

                            <indicatorHighColor>#00716B</indicatorHighColor>
                            <indicatorMiddleColor>#ffb75d</indicatorMiddleColor>
                            <indicatorLowColor>#C23934</indicatorLowColor>

                            • Add a validation/warning for when users try to filter only permission set for comparing and deploying

                              we believe that if we are given the option to filter only permission sets for the comparison, there should be some type of validation ensuring that you are also including dependencies such as custom objects, apex classes etc so that we don't make the assumption that filtering permission sets only in the comparison will include all dependencies

                                • 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.

                                  • Allow multiple ownership in Gearset

                                    Currently only the creator (owner) of Schedule Test, Monitor Orgs and Manage Orgs can edit these activities. It would be helpful if we could designate more than 1 Owner for these activities. Similar to granting access to the various orgs (Comparison, Validation& Deployment) it makes sense to also include an Owner access as well.

                                    If this is not possible, having a transfer ownership button would be helpful for each activity.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • When exporting from the comparision reports page, the currently selected items should show in the exportt

                                      Today when you are on a comparison results screen there is an export button that will export the entire list of comparison results to a csv. However the current export does not include a column indicating items that have been selected for the current deployment. Having this column would help in reviewing the list of data outside of gearset.

                                      • Create a VSTS Build Task for Gearset

                                        VSTS offers the ability to create build definitions to validate/deploy your code, but Gearset customers don't have much options natively in VSTS to trigger a Gearset deployment. We can scan a code repository for changes every 4 hours in order to do a CI deployment-- but that's about it.

                                        VSTS offers the ability for vendors to create "Build Tasks" for their applications, where you can initiate a VSTS build and get results. This is basically a controlled version of API access to the tool.

                                        More information:
                                        VSTS Marketplace - https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/vsts
                                        VSTS "Add a Build Task" - https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/docs/integrate/extensions/develop/add-build-task

                                        It would be…

                                        • Integrate with Jenkins

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