  1. 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

  2. Possibility to validate a feature branch as a whole without having to select the Metadata type

    It looks like the current validation jobs setup in Gearset needs the Metadata Type to be explicitly selected to perform the validation. This should ideally be optional and there should be a capability to just validate everything that is there in the feature branch against the target org. It's really annoying for us that we have to select the Metadata Types to be validated.

  3. Salesfroce Automation testing

    It will be great if gearset implements salesforce automation tools like Selenium, Accelq, Testim, opkey ect.

    The customer will have all the tools together( deployment, data backup, and testing automation).

  4. 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.

  5. Approve Pull Requests from Gearset

    Currently you have to navigate from Gearset to Github using the link from the Pull Request to approve a Pull Request. While functional, this requires going to an external system for an important Git functionality. This also creates a bit more complexity for non-technical users. If we could approve PRs directly from Gearset, that would be awesome!

  6. Setup using Github Enterprise edition although behind a Proxy

    I am running a Github Enterprise edition, but have to configure using custom git setup.

    Using the Github Enterprise connection setup, I was able to connect; however cloning the repository failed as the http request to list repositories returns the private host name instead of the proxied one.

    Clone functionality works when using the Custom Git link; however it limits our ability to make pull requests and it also requires entry of Username and Password instead of OAuth which is a security concern.

    Create a feature which allows the hostname initially entered in Enterprise Setup to be used in favor…

  7. Make "Hide Reodering" global switch

    Please add a feature to have globally selected "Hide Reordering" and also hide those files that have no changes after reordering from Changed Items?

    Clicking that on every file to see that there are no real differences is time consuming and slow down the comparison process.

    Scenario:
    1. I am comparing two sandboxes develop with my private sandbox to align with changes made on develop.
    2. I have comparison with many Global Value Sets, Custom fields which are Picklists, flows etc.
    3. Most of them are not changed but are listed as changes. I need to click on each metadata…

  8. Include Deployment Name on Continuous integration dashboard

    On the Continuous integration dashboard, specifically in the Validation only CI jobs section, there is no way to associate a validation job with the deployment dashboard in Salesforce. We have a validation only job set up to run tests on PRs when they're created. If we get a handful of them all at once, there is a long list of validation jobs running, but we can't tell which one is the one that's actively running. There is no link between the job in gearset and the job in salesforce.

  9. Make Gearset more responsive via web design

    Currently when doing deployments I have realized when i migrate to a smaller screen that gearset isn't super responsive and sometimes i have to drag it back to my larger monitor. This was really highlighted when I was attempting to deploy some metadata from my phone (mac was updating).
    Please make gearset more responsive so I can deploy from my phone.

  10. Revert with one click all changes from this PR

    Please allow reverting PR from lower environments. In mine example, we had a feature that went through develop and uat and was waiting in the pipeline to be added to release but the business changed its mind and canceled this whole feature.

    Please add an option that with one click we can revert PR and changes from lower environments.

  11. Import .csv data to avoid using tools like Data Loader, dataloader.io or Workbench

    It would be useful to be able to import data with Gearset from a .csv, so that I wouldn't have to use tools like Data Loader (newest versions are extremely buggy on macOS), Workbench or pay for a separate tool like dataloader.io.

  12. Pipeline automatic back promote

    When using pipelines, it would be helpful to have the option to automatically back promote changes through the pipeline. For example, we currently have a CI job that pushes specific changes that admins are allowed to make directly in production into our master branch. We then have a Github Action that automatically merges commits to our master branch to the other branches in the pipeline, so that everything is synced. However, in order to turn on pipeline, we have to turn off our automated merge action, because pipeline creates a bunch of PRs when the automation runs. This forces someone…

  13. Delete GitHub webhook when the CI job is deleted

    When we create a CI job where the source is GitHub, Gearset can automatically create a webhook for us in GitHub.

    Would it be possible to delete that webhook in GitHub when we delete the CI job from Gearset? I've got some GitHub repos with failing webhooks due to CI jobs I once created. Obviously, I can tidy up manually from GitHub, but it would be nice to have the option of Gearset doing it for me. The URL seems to be unique to the CI job, so I can't see it having any negative consequences.

  14. to let us configure the default metadata filter by deployment pipeline configuration

    Can we please have a possibility to configure the "standard" metadata filter by each deployment pipeline project?

    I think it is currently preselected by the last used metadata filter from the standard comparison.

    As we usually have a specific metadata filter configured by deployment pipeline project, it would be great that we can configure each project with a default one..

    Thank you!

  15. Compare Acitve Version of flows not the newest Flow

    When comparing flows please compare the active version of flows, not the newest version. This would align with how change sets handle flow.
    Example:
    Version 2 and 3 exist in source. Version 2 is active and version 3 is draft. I want to deploy Version 2 that is active not the inactive flow.

  16. Test salesforce connections in mass to highlight which need to be re-authorized

    Having a way to monitor/test all salesforce connections in mass to then highlight which need to be re-authorized would be helpful instead of catching them when preparing to do a comparison.

  17. 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…

  18. Schedule deployment option for validation only CI jobs

    It could be good that time selection schedule option is available, makes release timetable easier to execute to target org.

    Currently user can only execute the pre validated package immediately.

  19. 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.
