  1. Allow users to select custom fields even if the object does not exist in the target

    Would be great if GS allowed to select custom fields when doing a comparison even if the object does not exist in the target. If I am pushing changes to a repository I might want to only include the fields I created/modified and not the whole object.

  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. Cleanup Layout Assignments

    When you rename a Layout, the previous Layout Assignment won't be cleaned up on the Profile.
    This should be cleaned by the Repo dependency cleaner.

  4. Incorporate Relationship Graph into metadata deployment

    Right now is it not possible to deploy Relationship Graph metadata according to https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_meta.meta/api_meta/meta_relationshipgraphdefinition.htm with Gearset. This metadata is required for the so called Actionable Relationship Center, which is part of Financial Services Cloud. Even though the meta data is available in the Vlocity filter in Gearset, the items we are looking for doesn't fall under that one. If selected, no meta data get retrieved and therefore no deployment happens.

  5. 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!

  6. Show all Github requirements to merge in the Gearset pull request view.

    We have required approvals enabled on PRs in Github. Currently when viewing a Pull Request in the Gearset Pipelines view, it does not show that a PR is blocked from being merged because at least one code review approval is needed in Github. This leads to accidentally attempting to "promote" in Gearset and then the Pull Request merge fails. We would like to see these (and any other Github requirements) showing up in Gearset so we are informed which PRs are approved and ready to promote.

  7. Gearset Service Status Page

    It would be very useful to see a status page for Gearset services. Similar to other service platforms like Github (https://www.githubstatus.com/) or Salesforce trust (trust.salesforce.com)

    This would be great to help determine if there are issues with deployments, or if Gearset has any sort of performance degradation.

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. Partial environment variable replacement and wildcards

    Some types of metadata, such as Platform Event Subscriber Configuration, have attributes identifying a user by username. As such, regardless of the value in the source environment, the value deployed to the target org must match the username pattern of that org.

    For example, if the value in the source repo is <user>name@example.com</user>, when deployed to a sandbox, it must be <user>name@example.com.sandbox1</user>. From sandbox to sandbox: <user>name@example.com.sandbox1</user> must become <user>name@example.com.sandbox2</user>. And finally, when going from sandbox to production: <user>name@example.com.sandbox1</user> to <user>name@example.com</user>.

    This could be solved by supporting environment…

    Thanks Mike for submitting your idea.

    Gearset's Environment Variables feature already supports partial string replacements, which means you can get Gearset to replace 'sandbox1' bit of the <user> tag value with 'sandbox2', as follows:

    Target: Sandbox2

    Metadata Type: Platform Event Subscriber Configuration

    Item: Any item

    Find: sandbox1

    Replace with: sandbox2

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. backup expiration

    For compliance purposes I'd like to request an option to list the data backup expiration date. We are able to choose how long to retain the backup, but I do not see a place that lists when the backup is set to expire.

  15. Add the option to schedule weekly, monthly and yearly backups

    To meet our backup compliance requirements I'd like to suggest an option to schedule weekly, monthly, and yearly backups to go along with the daily backup option that is currently available. This way, we could setup multiple backup tasks with different retention.

    Thanks

  16. Provide Audit Report of Org Connections and Who Access Has Been Delegated To

    It would be great if we could pull an audit report that shows all of our Salesforce connections that are set up in Gearset and who has been delegated what level of access to each of them. This would help us to prove out segregation of duty for auditors by showing who has ever had access to deploy to production.

  17. Analyzer enhancement - detect missing ContentAsset in CustomApplication

    Given this XML in CustomApplication

    <CustomApplication xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">
    <brand>
    <headerColor>#0070D2</headerColor>
    <logo>MyLogo</logo>
    <logoVersion>1</logoVersion>
    <shouldOverrideOrgTheme>false</shouldOverrideOrgTheme>
    </brand>

    If user forgets to select Content Asset MyLogo, Analyzer should detect.

  18. 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.

  19. Pipeline CI jobs where deployment is disabled should capture validation job history

    If you have a Pipeline CI job configured to be Run Job = disabled; you can still promote PRs and run validations (which is great). But the validation job history is not preserved under the CI job. In fact, AFAIK, it can't be found at all except for the current promotion's vcalidation

    This would enable one to diagnose validation fails - perhaps due to problem analyzer automations. It would aid in communicating with support (as such validations could be shared)

  20. Button for 'All the Differences' that gives all additions, deletions, and changes

    I'd love to have a button for 'all the things' (new, changed, and deleted). Currently, every time I run a compare, I use the All button and then turn off 'No Difference' on type.
