  2. Add ability to clone deployment CI job to validation-only CI job

    This would save us time duplicating regex statements for the new job

  3. Deactivate email deliverability on Data Deployment

    User email are masked in Sandboxes and we can mask Contact emails as part of the data deployment. This still leaves the Org Wide addresses as valid emails. If there is automation that is generating emails related to the data that is loaded, they will be delivered to the Org Wide Addresses.

    It would be useful if the same script that is deactivating validation rules could set email deliverability to systems emails at the same time.

    In the even that email deliverability was set to all emails in the Sandbox and not adjusted before the data deployment we would have…

  5. Exclude list of Profiles from every compare

    With Pipelines / CI jobs, it is optimal if you can keep your VCS from getting cluttered with permissions for profiles you never use. Typically, these are standard SFDC profiles (SolutionManager, ContractManager, etc.)

    Rather than crafting a bunch of custom metadata filters that exclude these; it would be great to know that EVERY compare filter excluded an admin-defined list of Profiles

    The same principle could be applied to CustomObjects as there are a fleet of OOTB SFDC custom objects that most orgs never use and it would be great to see an admin-defined list of these excluded from every compare…

  6. Make org-org and org-VCS compare differences work the same

    There is no end to confusion on the part of the devops user when Gearset displays differences "differently" when comparison is org-org vs. org-VCS

    For example: https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/3491009-are-profile-permissions-showing-up-as-new-or-deleted-when-you-know-it-s-not-the-case

    Gearset should apply a consistent principle - to see a Profile subcomponent, the compare filter should include both sides of the subcomponent (e.g. Profile + ApexClass to see ApexClassPermissions; Profile + Layout to see layoutAssignments; etc.)

    If both sides of the subcomponent are not included in the filter, then there's no difference to show.

    Note that these use cases must also be supported:

    Profile deleted in org; org->VCS compare should delete .profile file…

  7. When an Installed Package is installed via GS permission sets with View/Edit All Data system permission don't automatically get updated

    When an Installed Package is installed via GS, permission sets with View/Edit All Data system permission don't automatically get updated for the new objects in the package like they do during a manual install. We then have to update the PS via deployment or manually or future deployments will fail with "Read All permission is required for [sObject]". I would think it would be fairly safe to allow GS to automatically add the appropriate object permissions to the perm set in the target org since Salesforce requires that all objects have, at minimum, the same level of access as the…

  9. Ability for Enterprise User with Role "Owner" to Delete Validated Deployment by Other User

    This feature would allow Enterprise user with Role"Owner" to Delete Validated Deployment by Other Users. The reason for doing this is that there could be packages created in error and this would allow release managers who are typically owners to cleanup.

  10. Add Analyzer for "Cannot delete the only layout"

    This is a common issue with deploys from VCS to orgs and especially so for standard objects when SFDC introduces new versions and hence new objects

    Example: In V53, SFDC introduced Standard Object "Customer"

    If your VCS doesn't have a CustomObject for Customer and a Layout for Customer, the CI job will attempt to delete the Layout and get an error - you can't delete the only layout"

    The Analyzer should detect this with recommendation to not delete; then CI jobs can honor this and not fail

  11. Items requiring the master-detail field be added - spurious Analyzer message

    If deploying from org->VCS and you get "Items requiring the master-detail field be added" - Gearset should look in the target and see if the various conditions (presence of master/detail fields/objects) already are present and avoid this analyzer message

    Once your VCS is fleshed out, it will have all the custom object/fields you need and then from that time forward, this analyzer message is irrelevant/annoying.

    Why should I see it every time I make any changes to the detail object for the rest of time?

  12. clone deployment dialog is too small vertically when adding a branch; leads to mistakes

    If you clone a deployment, say from org to VCS, and you opt to create a branch as part of the dialog; the button to actually create the branch once you've named it requires scrolling to see.

    It is too easy for the busy developer to miss this and just click the Run Comparison button - thus not actually creating the branch and doing the compare against the parent (wrong) branch.

    The dialog should either resize, or be laid out differently - thus avoiding a potential disaster with the wrong branch updated (main instead of feature)

  13. Metadata Filter organization with group or tag management

    It's great that we can set filter visibility now to Only Me or to share with Team. It would be nice, especially for larger teams, to have another way to organize them either with tags, folders, sub teams or groups.

    Example: 1 Scrum Team may have 10-15 filters they maintain and use, and another group of users on a team also have 5 or so they use. Both can see all 20, and this adds up fast.

    Feels like being able to group users together could also have other benefits like mass assigning access to orgs (for deployment, validation, comparison)…

  14. Allow regex expression in custom metadata filter to be edited

    Once you create a regex filter in your your Metadata Filter, you can't select it and edit it. You have to delete and re-enter.

    This is especially useful when working with CI job filters

  15. Make metadata filters easier to use when you want to "include all except X,Y"

    For CI jobs, it is not uncommon that you want to include all elements of a given custom metadata type except specific elements

    Today, you need to have two entries - an include all (".*") expression and an exclude expression. For users who are not regex savvy, this is too complicated.

    We should have "All", "Named", and "All except Named" at the top level so simple check boxes can be used.

    This is particularly useful for CI jobs (whose purpose is to sync VCS w/ org) - you want to sync most everything except a few items - like Sites…

  16. Allow Package Version Mismatch Bypass for Org Deployments

    When deploying a branch to a Salesforce org where there is a managed package version mismatch in the file metadata, it would be nice to be able to bypass this discrepancy as there are occasions where there may be a newer package version in a lower/sandbox org and an older package version in a higher/production org.

  17. Repo Cleaner support when you stop licensing a feature

    When you stop licensing a feature, there could be all sorts of cruft in the VCS that is otherwise challenging to remove using normal Gearset tools.

    Example: We stopped licensing LiveAgent but our VCS is full of references to LiveChatTranscript and other CustomObjects used by this feature. This is particularly apparent with sub-elements of Profile

    It would be cool if Gearset repo cleaner could detect when standard objects no longer available in the source org of the compare would be considered as deleted and all refs to those standard objects would be repo-cleaned.

  18. The ability to deploy only certain fields in a record type and not all fields

    If we want to promote a change to a single field in a record type, we're unable to because the file is pushed in it's entirety. We'd like the ability to view from list of available changes in a record type by field and select just the changes to the fields we want to promote.

  19. Ability to activate / deactivate Flows / Processes as part of the meta data and/or data deployment process

    It should be possible to have gearset to deactivate flows and/or processes based on a selection. And to roll-back afterwards. Similar to what has been created here: https://sfswitch.herokuapp.com/
