  1. Select All Option in Deployment history

    It would be nice if we have the select all option in the deployment history to select multiple packages to combine in one go and deploy as one package into target.

  2. Send email alert when monitoring job fails

    It would be helpful if Gearset would notify the user when connection problems cause a monitoring job to fail.

    For example, if the error "Error while getting access token due to expired access" occurs, Gearset could send an email to the author of the monitoring job informing them of the problem.

  3. Add option to provide exact time in case automatic deployment

    We need to set exact time for automatic deployment. We need this option for example for night releases for specific client. This is important for international clients that works in different time zones

  4. Add the ability to create some custom reporting against metadata change monitoring

    I would like the ability to report on changes for an org over a time period grouped by metadata type or user. Filters would be by data, user, metadata type, change type. Would like to export or email the report too.

  5. Ability to recreate a reusable list or group for Deployment notifications

    Every week we have a larger sized scheduled deployment for logic updates that runs after business hours. There's usually the same 2-6 people (often increasing) that want to receive an email and/or text message when the deployment succeeds. Whoever schedules the deployment has to add each one manually every time, and it would be nice to have a way to send notifications to a predefined list or group of email addresses and/or phone numbers.

    It usually has to be the person that schedules the deployment, because if someone goes back to add their own email or phone to an already…

  6. 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.

  7. Add or ignore parts of XML after the comparison to ignore other users changes

    If there are multiple users making changing the metadata in Salesforce and when one has to deploy their changes, it is not possible to pick the changes that are specific to one person, For this we have to go to VS code and use git patch mode to add only the necessary changes for a specific user. If we have an option to edit the xml after the comparision and pick only necessary pieces and deploy it to next org will save time and also switching between multiple orgs. Currently the comparison editor is read only mode.

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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?

  15. 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)

  16. Deploy first fields where <trackHistory> was changed from true to false.

    Deploy first fields where <trackHistory> was changed from true to false.
    I am currently deploying fields changes and getting error that too many fields are tracked because fields with true ale deployed first.

  17. 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

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. Add a deployed components count to the Deployment History table

    We'd like the ability to view the number of changes that were deployed from the Deployment History table view so that we can quickly scan the list of recent deployments and identify certain deployments using that additional information.
