  1. Integrate with Agile Accelerator instead of just Jira

    Integrate with Agile Accelerator instead of just Jira.
    It would be great if Gearset (and ideally the Pipelines-feature) could integrate with Agile Accelerator.

    Since we're a Salesforce-partner we want to use as many Salesforce-native solutions. That's why we've been happily using Agile Accelerator for many years.

    It would be great if Gearset can also integrate with Agile Accelerator instead of just Jira.
    Right now the Gearset Pipelines feature isn't useful to us, because of this sole reason.

    Thanks for considering this!

  2. Precision Deployments (available for Layouts) for all the meta data

    Precision Deployments for Layout is a great improvement, it would be great to have the same feature for other meta data, particularely for : Fields picklists, global value sets, List Views, Reports, Profiles, Permission Sets and why not Lightning Pages, now that the Dynamic Form is available for Acc, Contacts & Opp

  3. Write Deployment Results back to the user's Salesforce org

    When setting up a deployment, it would be helpful to capture Deployment Results in a custom object in the running user's Salesforce org. Users would be able to specify a unique reference at the point of deployment, which would track through to the Salesforce org.

    Information about the deployment would be captured in a Master record, with data about individual components existing in Detail records.

    Org admins would then be free to leverage automation features to map the created records as they see fit.

    As a consultancy that tracks our customer requirements in Salesforce, our use case would be that…

  4. Add RecordType support for PersonAccount

    Problem analyzer is always trying to remove my picklist values from any RecordTypes on PersonAccount. I am forced to use a custom "Problem analyzer template" where "Remove picklists from record type" is disabled.

    Suppose I have a field called pickme: Account.Pickme--pc | Contact.Pickme--c it shows up in the record type XML as Pickme--c, and it seems like gearset tries to find a picklist on account with that exact API name, which will of course fail. My ask is that rather than raising an error at this point, GS should repeat this check on the contact object where it would find…

  5. Enable Field Level Mapping for Data Deployments

    Currently there is no field mapping option available for Data Deployment of Objects. This is a big blocker if we want to migrate selective fields data across Salesforce instances.

  6. In Azure Repositories, maintain owner when changing PR to gs-pipelines

    When dealing with Azure Repository, the owner of the gs-pipeline PR is always the user used for authentication. Any way to include the original owner would be helpful since the messaging is lost this way

  7. Make Custom Filters a Top-Level Menu Item

    Filters are arguably the best part of gearset, especially with the support for RegEx. It is kind of a bummer that they are tucked away in a modal that can only be reached by clicking into a dropdown. Ideally you could just go to Hamburger > Metadata Deployments > Custom Filters and be routed to a dedicated page.

  8. Allow for Scheduled Comparisons

    Like Monitoring Jobs, allow users to choose a source, target, and metadata filter, and schedule when a comparison runs.

    The primary goal of this would be time savings. To have that data already retrieved and cached so you can go in, make your selections, and move toward deployment more quickly. Possible applications include recurring deployments, planning out your workday, etc. This addition would be for non-Integration users.

  9. Option to set and make use of 'deployment rules'

    It would be great if we can have the option to set and make use of 'deployment rules':

    1 - receive an alert/warning message (in gearset/via email) right before deploying to a selected target environment, for instance - a production environment if certain pre-defined metadata types are included in the deployment.

    use cases: a reminder to run all test when deleting metadata, a reminder to activate a flow on target environment after deployment.

    2 - block a deployment in the following case scenarions:

    a - if the deployment of certain pre-defined metadata types happens within a pre-defined timeframe.

    use case:…

  10. Add schedule deployment for Pipelines

    It would be great to add a new feature to cherry pick and schedule deployment for the changes that have reached up till staging/uat and should be released to Prod. Without this feature it becomes difficult to manage releases to avoid downtime.

  11. Hide re-ordering in a Monitoring job

    We have a monitoring job set up to check production changes. However, re-ordering in some components are popping up as false positive. For example, Entitlement Process and Site.com. Everyday I get an email saying # of changes have been made on production. I'd like to not see these false positives in the # so that I do not need to go to each comparison every day just to realize that it's a re-ordering issue.

  12. Allow all admin users to run the 'Take Snapshot' functionality on Monitor jobs not owned by them

    I would like all of my 'Admin' users (or specify which users in my org) can have access to run monitoring jobs I've set up.

    The scenario is that we're a small team, so I want to set up all of our monitoring jobs, but if an issue occurs while I'm OOO any of my other team members could run the 'Take Snapshot' function to determine which changes occurred since the last monitor job ran and roll the changes back.

    Currently users can edit/delete monitor jobs of other users and if provided 'Deployment' access can roll the changes back, but…

  13. Allow me to configure my default landing page on logging in

    Specifically, I use the Pipelines most of the time and would love for that to be there as soon as I login. While my use case is Pipelines specific, I would guess that others might want a different page when they login, so it would be nice to be able to configure this on a per-account basis.

  14. allow selecting of specific picklist values when deploying changes to picklist fields

    Essentially would like to be able to cherry pick the values for a picklist value that is being deployed from a lower sandbox. Basically what you did with Precision Layout deployment for page layouts. There are times when we do not want to deploy all of the new/different values for a picklist field.

  15. Have the Jira ticket which was selected at the point of the commit stay with the PR in Pipelines

    At the moment when you select a Jira ticket at the point of commiting to a branch, you are able to track that actionback into Jira.

    However when a PR is opened from that feature branch to the next environment branch (in the Pipelines UI specifically) the Jira ticket association is lost, and has to be reattached manually.

    Workaround:

    1. Put the ticket ID in the branch name, i.e. name your branch "feature/AL-99- new-flow"
    2. Use the drop down menu provided in the Pipelines UI to re select the Jira ticket
    3. Open the PR from the Commit successful screen and tick the…

  16. Introduce Import/Export feature for Custom Filters

    Expose the underlying JSON/XML for Custom Filters so that we can export it, modify it in a text editor either by hand or with python scripts, then load it back into the custom filter.

    For example I have my main CI filter with 50ish metadata types, and every other filter is a subset which I establish by cloning the "master" filter and deselecting metadata types. Whenever I make a change to the master filter I am forced to nuke all the the "detail" filters and recreate them off the master using the above approach.

    So many clicks. My preference would…

  17. Profile Comparison within Same Org

    It would be useful to be able to compare profiles within the Same Org to allow for improved Security analysis and deployment.

    Use Case: Developer added new functionality in Sandbox and applied it to only a few of the profiles that were specific to that story. Now there is a new to expose that functionality to more users, but need an easy way of knowing which profiles are missing the needed functionality without going through each individually.

  18. Saved Comparisons should be visible to team members

    I have a team that has access to Gearset but unfortunately they cannot view the Saved Comparisons I've created. To reduce unnecessary time spent on creating and maintaining Saved Comparisons, it would be greatly appreciated if the Saved Comparisons could be shared with the team and possibly allow the owner to delegate access to the Saved Comparisons.

  19. support blank values and/or regex in the "Find What" field on Environment Variables

    ...support blank values and/or regex in the "Find What" field on Environment Variables.

    I would like to replace the value in a field on a Custom Metadata Type with an environment specific value, regardless as to what the value is in the source file. Currently I need to specify an specific value in the source to be replaced.

  20. Inline editing of metadata

    https://gearset.uservoice.com/forums/283474-help-us-improve-gearset/suggestions/38358922-inline-editing-of-metadata

    The idea above was "closed" due to Environment Variables.

    That feature is too fiddley for our use case as the change that needs to be performed is not consistent. Furthermore, that feature does not help with handling merges.

    Gearset has some merging capabilities, but it only allows to select one file or another, instead of merging changes from both files.

    I'm aware it is possible to perform merges from source control, though it would be easier to train our team if they did not have to learn another technology. Furthermore, it leaves the process to more faults as the…
