  1. New analyzer check - changing field type on a custom metadata type (mdt) field

    Turns out the following can't be done:

    Change the type of a xxxmdt.Fooc (e.g. from Number to Text)

    While the Force.com UI doesn't let you do this directly, you can do indirectly by deleting the Foo__c, then adding it back with a new field type. Your sandbox is a-ok with this

    But if you try to deploy, SFDC won't let you deploy and you get this error: "This field is on an object that doesn’t support field type conversion."

    Gearset Analyzer could check this by comparing source to target and give you a nice warning. Would save the…

  2. Show rows that have no set "Changed On" date when applying a date filter.

    Currently the moment you deselect a single specific date, all blank dates are also filtered out.

    I would expect only the items with the given date be removed from the list.

    This has become apparent now that the sort order of dates in the pulldown bug has been fixed.

  3. FLS selection for Source control

    while deploying a field to source control. we just want to move profile FLS of that only field. FLS was not displayed on the components drop down of profile. we are only able select profile so that whole object's FLS are getting deployed to the Source Control.

  4. Trigger a data deployment from a CI job

    When we pull down a version between our local and staging environments. We would like to also automatically pull in the testing data from another project.

    As one of the things we are trying to setup is taking a version from Prod then running GhostInspector through our core flows. Ideally every 4 hours we take a backup from metadata + locked down actual data. Then run tests against it.

  6. show which deployment each metadata was a part of when doing a bulk clone.

    When doing a bulk clone, each metadata should show what previous deployment it was a part of as to allow us to verify that the bulk clone worked. Another use case is that it would allow us to find a deployment we know has changed and be able to remove or change the metadata quickly.

  7. Extend the ability to add and delete in a single deployment to all metadata types

    We just came across an issue in which we were deploying an HTML email template that had been moved from one folder to another in the source environment.

    When deploying, only the delete happened on the first deploy. I needed to do a second deploy to handle the addition.

    While probably not a common case, it's certainly important as the initial deployment reports that the addition was successful.

  8. Allow option to select certain test classes to NOT run. Include an exclusion list of tests not to run

    When deploying code, it would be nice to have an option of having an exclusion list of test classes to not run.

  9. Org Management/Oversight Dashboard

    I would really benefit from a dashboard option. A single place where I could see my CI Job history, Unit Testing Jobs and Monitoring/Backup history for all/a subset of my orgs.

    I am using Gearset more and more to manage the state of my org's metadata, so it would be nice to be able to see it all in one place.

  11. Allow adding "No Difference" items to package. To help with package reuse to multiple orgs

    Allow assets with "no difference" to be added to a promotion to allow the same package to be used to both promote as well as sync other sandboxes (without having to manually check if asset was changed in each).

  12. Suppress "changed on" datetimes in difference viewer where datetime is the same as the metadata retrieval datetime

    The difference viewer will show Changed on values for the current datetime for certain metadata types - probably because SFDC is returning such a value when, in fact, the source didn't change at all

    • Custom object
    • Settings
    • Standard valueset
    • Workflow rules

    displaying the current datetime of the compare run (i.e. the metadata retrieve datetime) is not helpful when trying to filter on changed date in the difference viewer (i.e. sort descending)

  13. Select all objects in a data deployment

    It would be useful to select all objects in the data deploy screen to make it faster to select a large number of objects (even better would be the ability to group objects and select whole groups at once)

  14. Test run details: show failed tests tab first

    When user clicks on test run details, Gearset defaults to the successes tab. But no one clicks on test Run details to see successes; they want to see failures. Default tab should be failures, especially if non-zero

    Saves user a click and supports DWIM - "do what I mean" when clicking Test Run Details

  15. Enhance capabilities around 'co-administration'

    In our organization we have a couple different salesforce admins that are administrating the salesforce development pipeline in which several developers are making changes and deploying them via gearset. Right now it seems cumbersome/duplicative to do this particularly around the area of adding a sandbox org and then managing permissions of the developers to that sandbox. It would be nice if there was a way for one admin to connect the sandbox, grant the other admin "Owner-level" access to it, and for the two admins to have a shared view of the user access to that org, so I can…

    Allow Gearset to generate a public/private key pair, and expose the public key for use in authentication to source control.

  17. Create a Master-Switch Only deployment process

    Can you create a master-switch deployment option? It would be similar to how this operates: https://sfswitch.herokuapp.com/

    The issue is that this master switch does not always work with managed packages in production orgs.

    So a way to automate the turning off/on of Validation Rules, Process Builders, Flows, and Triggers.

    Use Case: We are building a new app and have significant data migration to do. It would help to have a master switch to turn off processes in PROD, deploy date, then, flip the master switch back to turning processes back on.

  18. Offer to push components that passed validation even if some items failed

    For large payloads (thousands of artifacts) it can be tedious to try to resolve a few minor issues when 99% of the package will deploy successfully. Having a feature to push stuff that passes validation would be helpful. Included in this in the deployment summary and deployment reports will be a count and list of items that failed validation and were omitted from the package so they can be investigated
