    • Allow a deployment team to update the same draft deployment at the same time or warn the end user of a draft in use by another user

      When a dev team work on a shared deployment, it would be nice to work on the same deployment draft, at the same time. At a bare minimum, it would be good to be warned that someone is updating the draft at the same time as you.

          • 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!

            • Filter standard vs custom objects

              We sell a managed package and will never include standard objects in a comparison, and absolutely not in source control. When I'm running a compare against source control to check for changes, it will show all of the standard objects as "custom objects" which is not correct. I should have a way to filter out standard objects from the comparison.

              • Individual File Refresh

                Often times I find myself updating 1 or two files since a prior comparison. Rather than refreshing the entire thing which can take a while, it would be nice if I could specify which ones to refresh.

                I'm aware that I can set which metadata types to compare, but even in large orgs, the 4 or 5 common ones can still take quite awhile from a full refresh.

                Thanks!

                • 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.

                  • download the zip package at an earlier stage before analysis has taken place

                    Download the zip package at an earlier stage before the analysis has taken place.
                    In big Orgs with multiple teams working the analysis page takes sometimes to load so it would be a great addition if we can download the zip package file and modify it.

                    • Automatically revert PR in GitHub CI Jobs

                      When a CI job fails, the bad code remains in the GitHub repo. I'd like to see a way to revert the commit/PR that caused that failure so that any CI jobs for new, unrelated, commits/PRs won't fail while the developer is working to resolve the issue.

                            • Make default 64 Comparison Faster

                              If there is one thing that is :-( about Gearset is that for moderate size orgs (a few thousand objects), the default 64 comparison takes too long.

                              You want to initiate a deployment from source to target and, for whatever reason, you want to make sure you didn't miss anything that needs to be deployed

                              So, to be safe, you initiate the 64 default comparison.

                              And you wait (downloading, comparison). This can take several minutes. You go on to other tasks and your zeal to get the deployment done went off onto other things as the comparison time is too…

                              • Avoid going to Setup | Deployment status on "validate deployment don't run any tests"

                                If you are deploying to PROD and
                                a) You have Apex classes in your deployment
                                b) You choose Validate Deployment - Don't run any tests

                                The Validation will fail and Gearset will tell you to check the target org Setup | Deployment Status where as suggested, the most likely cause is test coverage failures.

                                This is in fact true but it seems that Gearset could warn you before acting on a PROD deployment with non-test apex classes and 'don't run any tests' that this will be guaranteed to occur and give you a chance to reconsider your choice before wasting…

                                • Access to Critical Updates

                                  We use Gearset as our primary utility for managing various client orgs include Production and Sandboxes for Testing and Release Management. It would be great if there was also a way to access, review and potentially enable/disable any Critical Updates in any org from Gearset.

                                  However, I do understand that Critical Updates may not currently be accessible from the metadata API.

                                  Just a thought,
                                  Mike

                                    We have a push topic that we use but there is currently no easy way to deploy changes between orgs. Would it be possible to do this via Gearset?

                                    • Add button to go from validation package to comparison

                                      Use-case is where we have validated a package, but not been able to deploy it before expiry. Eventually, we are able to deploy it...

                                      At this point, I'd like to be able to go from my validation package in the history straight to a comparison with the same objects selected. Then, I'll be able to make sure everything still looks good and validate/deploy again.

                                      • Echo source/target on Resolve Missing Dependencies page

                                        If you are using Gearset to deploy between multiple orgs/repos, you may find you have launched the analyzer on multiple tabs within the browser (or across browsers). Since this operation takes some minutes, when the page 'Resolve mIssing Dependencies' appears, you get no clue as to the source/target. In today's multi-tasking life of a developer, it is easy to get lost and forget which tab was for which deployment.

                                        Basically, the principle should be to echo the source/target in the header of all pages/dialogs - especially if the operation to arrive at that page is not 'instant' wherein the user…

                                        • Field Tracking Analyzer message is misleading

                                          If source org includes a new custom field with field history tracking enabled TRUE, the deployment analyzer reports the following when deploying to target org:

                                          'Fields with history tracking enabled cannot be deployed before it is enabled on the object. You should remove these history tracking changes from the deployment'

                                          Specific use case was object OrderItem

                                          1. Analyzer can clearly detect if field history is enabled on target org object (which it was) - message is spurious.

                                          2. Analyzer can arguably detect that target org's limit (20) will be exceeded by the deployment of the selected custom fields (which could…
