  1. Please adjust problem analyser feature to show record type changes when a picklist field value is added.

    Currently Problem analyser does not show any warnings or issues when record types are not selected for a picklist field changes( value addition). With this during deployment there is fair amount of chance that some one could easily miss record type changes. Please adjust problem analyser to account this situation and show record type changes as warnings would be beneficial.

  2. add Dashboard owner to Problem Analysis to use user deploying instead in xml ref

    Spring '24 Salesforce added ability to change Owner on a Dashboard https://help.salesforce.com/s/articleView?id=release-notes.rn_rd_dashboards_change_owner.htm&release=248&type=5

    "Previously, you had to clone or re-create the dashboard to provide access to a new owner."

    This can now cause deployment errors when the Owner is changing between environments if the Uesr does not exist, similar to runningUser user references. Problem Analysis accounts for the latter, but not the Owner. Could we add the Owner scenario to this analysis rule?

  3. apex classes dependencies

    When deploying an apex class, check for dependencies. Currently it attempts to deploy even if there are missing fields and only reports missing fields one at a time. Very tedious to address.

  4. Add to Problem Analysis option to auto remove DelegatedAccount tab settings

    Add to Problem Analysis option to auto remove DelegatedAccount tab settings since it's an invalid tab and can cause validation/deployment errors. This saves a step of having to change Custom Object filter to Named Items and manually exclude DelegatedAccount when moving new profiles.

  5. Highlight "Failed Validation" Components

    If the metadata Deployment Validation step fails, and the user clicks the "Back to Comparison" button, the components that caused the failure should be highlighted on the screen for manual review.

    Currently, when a deployment fails on the validation step, my process is:
    - Wait until the Validation step is done
    - Sort by the Status to show Failures on top
    - Take a screenshot of the list of errors (hopefully less than a full screen of errors)
    - Click the "Back to Comparison" button
    - Use the screenshot like a checklist to work through the errors
    - Run Validation…

  6. Enable data fixes when migrating Vlocity datapacks

    When the data in the source and target environments are aligned, deploying Vlocity datapacks with Gearset can be quite straightforward.

    However at times when they are not, deployments can fail catastrophically with the documented solution requiring the use of tools provided by Vlocity / Salesforce Industries in their Vlocity Build Tool : https://github.com/vlocityinc/vlocity_build. The alternative is to try manually resolving the issues, which can be an uphill struggle when you consider complexities around products, such as their hierarchy, availability and pricing.

    For Gearset to truly be a one-stop tool for Salesforce Industries deployments, please enable data fix functionalities in…

  7. Bulk resolving merge conflicts across multiple PRs (set resolution as Feature or Environment)

    It would be great if there was the capability to bulk-apply Feature or Environment when resolving merge conflicts across multiple PRs. I have a few dozens that all need to be set to the same option, and it would be useful to handle this quickly rather than click on each one individually.

  8. False error - 'Field permission cannot be set for Required Fields'

    Deploying few field permissions through CI, there is an error 'Field permission cannot be set for Required Fields' in the Problem Analyzer, but actually the fields are not marked as Required in the target. Lead.Pronoun, Lead.GenderIdentity fields.

  10. allow configuration of problem analysers for different target locations

    If we could turn of problem analysers for specific locations (e.g. Git repos) this would allow us to remove irrelevant problem solutions from our git commits, but keep them for deployments

  11. Add api version check validation

    We have experienced quite a few errors when a metadata component is developed in a sandbox that has been updated to the preview api version but production hasn't been updated to that version yet. Our entire pipeline and PR validation process works perfectly until the very last step when deploying to production. It's very difficult to deal with at that point.

  12. package missing -meta.xml endings

    When I download a package from a CI Job, it doesn't include the require "-meta.xml" ending for my metadata types. I wrote the following script to add them back one folder at a time. It would make more sense if Gearset just gave me the correct filenames when I download the package though.

    # Gearset gives us a downloadable package to trouble shoot, 
    # but it doesn't have the -meta.xml text appended to it.
    # Find all files with this ending and append -meta.xml to it.
    find ./  -type f -name '*.flow' | xargs -I '{}' mv '{}' '{}'-meta.xml
    
    find

  13. Set Problem Analyzer to default with all rules disabled

    Problem Analyzer rules are automatically enforced for CI Deployments which are misleading to end user as the default has ALL rules set to enabled. My recommendations is to have the default template have ALL rules set to disabled OR have clear communication in the CI Deployment feature to notify users that Problem Analyzer rules are enabled and may cause expected deployment behaviour/errors.

  14. Flow equivalent of Static Code Analysis-esque rules

    Code Analysis rules run against Apex in Gearset. As Salesforce development continues to rely on Flows as the main tool for declarative automation, it's becoming challenging to catch known inefficiencies, known issues, and discouraged usages. It would really set Gearset a part as a deployment tool to utilize issue detection or run "rules" against Flow metadata to call out potential issues or flows not following best practices to even prevent a deployment or commit from occurring.

    Examples: SOQL or DML in a loop, the number of elements for flows (prior to api v57) or general overall complexity, lack of Descriptions…

  17. When Deploying A Page Layout, Consider Quick Actions to be Dependencies When Checking for Package Issues

    Problem analysis doesn't catch if a page layout has a Quick Action that isn't present in the destination. This causes the package to error on send.

  18. Don't include Wave dataflow deletes in package when Recipe is included

    When deploying deletes of Wave recipes, if you include the Dataflow at the same time, Salesforce will fail validation with a DataFlow not found error. GearSet should be smart enough to build the package without the Dataflow if the corresponding Recipe is marked for delete.

  19. Ability to see complete history related to a ticket or common name

    It would be incredibly useful to have the ability to see a complete history related to a ticket or common name. For example, if I'm working on a Jira ticket named "SALES-123," I would like to be able to see all of the comparisons, branches, deployments, and promotions related to that ticket.

    This ability would significantly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of troubleshooting issues.

  20. Bring back the Suggested Fixes in Problem Analyzer to suggest permissions for fields when moving a new field.

    Previously if you selected to migrate a field, Problem Analyzer would suggest the permissions. Now it only shows up on Warnings tab. This forces you to go back to the Comparison and individually find the permissions for each field. It should include these as Suggested Fixes. Additionally, if a field is listed as a Suggested Fix, the permissions for that field should be included as Suggested Fixes as well.
