  1. sfdx repo deployment should be in subcomponents

    Context: Compare and Deploy from Org to a Repo.

    as i understand it, even if my repo is in SFDX format (Object subcomponents), Gearset still does the compare in the metadata format.
    it reads the components from sfdx, combines into a .object form, and then applies the changes to the .object file and then decomposes again.

    this is causing unintentional changes to be part of our PR

  2. Enhance Metadata Filter Type Recognition

    Our team has struggled learning the Metadata API names of metadata types when compared to what items are called in change sets. One example would be to highlight Weblink when a user searches for Button.

  3. Option to sort Custom Application XML

    While this can be done with VSC custom plugins for SFDX, I think it would be really beneficial if Gearset offered the ability to sort Custom App XML in comparisons in order to see what's actually changing between a source and target for lightning page activations. Due to the way SFDC generates this XML, the way page activations are ordered is very difficult to follow, and I think it's an opportunity to make that easier especially for declarative config users of Salesforce.

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. Add an option to ignore package version differences in Apex classes

    I see many differences between apex classes where the only difference is the package version(s), no difference in the code itself. It would be nice to have an option to filter these out so that only the apex classes are shown where the code is different.

  9. "Dismiss/Hide Item" option for any found comparison

    There are numerous "changes' that aren't actually changes (ex: logo images, Global Picklist set order). It'd be great to hide those those changes or dismiss them in a comparison to not look at them. Once it's dismissed, it's out of sight and there is no need to evaluate it every time you look at a saved comparison. It'd be clear that it was evaluated and not dismissed.

  10. Filter option: not containing, eg. rather than filtering for 'custom field', filter by components not a 'custom field'

    A better example might be I don't want to see anything that has the word 'contact'.

  11. Allow Package Cloning between Saved Comparison Pairs

    Please allow us to select a comparison pair as the source/destination when cloning a package. This will make it much easier to select the source and destination when cloning a package, and reduce the risks associated with accidentally selecting the wrong repo or branch or sandbox.

  12. Identify that metadata is the same, even if ordered differently by metadata API

    There are a lot of instances where the comparison will identify metadata as different, but the only difference is the way the API is ordering the XML. I've seen it happen a lot with picklist values on multi-select picklist fields. It would be nice to be able to turn this on/off somehow so that metadata that isn't truly different won't show up in the difference compare.

  13. Add an option to ignore location changes for Flow

    Hi, when reviewing changes for flows that are being deployed, it would be great to have a toggle option to hide or alternately color location changes which are just the location of elements on the flow canvas editor.
    <locationX>1353</locationX>
    <locationY>1305</locationY>

    Sometimes there are hundreds of location changes and it obscures the important information about what else changed.

  14. Option to ignore: <personAccountDefault> in XML

    When comparing XML for RecordType permissions in Profiles, some Sandboxes return:
    <personAccountDefault>true</personAccountDefault>

    As part of the XML, even though person accounts are not enabled, this makes comparing annoying.

    It would be nice to have an option to ignore this.

  15. Allow exporting of custom filter settings

    I have some regexes configured specifically for continuous integration, changing these would likely break our CI process. I would like to be able to export a JSON or YAML (or whatever sensible text based format) of my filter configuration, so I can easily view which metadata I'm selecting and excluding through regex, and possibly commit this file to source control.

    This is primarily because our team shares filters, and I'd hate to lose the configuration because of someone mucking up.

  16. Display Permission Set changes as one entry

    When working with Permission Set changes, it sometimes would be useful to see them grouped by Permission Set instead of being disaggregated by field. For example, we are migrating from using Profiles to Permission sets to grant all access. Currently, if we make changes to many (>100) fields in two different Permission Sets, we have to review many (>100) entries. Also, grouping by permission set would allow us to deploy changes to one Permission Set while ignoring the other.

  17. Last Modified in Metadata Filter

    It would be great if I could set a "last modified" filter when setting which metadata to pull. Rather than go to Apex Classes, wait for the list to refresh, then cherry-pick them, it would be great to simply compare Apex classes modified today, or in the last 30 days, or in the last hour, etc.

  18. To add capability to mark (to ignore) not selected items to be able to remember that the particular item is not required to be deployed

    When compare source and target, sometimes u do an educated decision to NOT select something, and then selecting the rest of the items. Then if the compare results saved as a Draft Deployment, u may return back to it, and do a refresh for the comparison. In this case Gearset would kindly save all of the selected items. But for items that were not selected by the user, not they are mixed up with the new differences. So user have to remember, that this particular item he did not select intentinally, but this item that is not selected is a…
