  1. Update Metadata Change Monitor Report

    When you update the change monitor report metadata filters and include new metadata types, the next monitor report shows all the newly added metadata as "New Items" on the report. Although not a big deal it did cause an alarm for us not realizing it was due to the change we made prior. It would be a "nice to have" feature if either you don't include the newly added metadata types as "New Items" on the initial report or flag them and have a visible cue to indicate the items were a result of newly added metadata items on the…

  2. Force selection of fields to use instead of selecting id as default

    In the select related objects page, Gearset selects id as the 'fields to use' field. If we are deploying a large set of data and by mistake do not change the 'fields to use' field then we end up creating duplicate records for Upserts. Would be great if there is an option to enable or disable the default selection.

  3. For failed CI job runs, develop a way update to the job status

    When for whatever reason, jobs can get job stuck in status "Deploying".

    The real deployment task is already successfully finished in the org, so I would expect that the status of the CI job would be "Succeeded".

    I was assured that in 24hrs the status of the job will automatically reset, but can we have also a way to force an update to the CI job manually?

    Note: The "Cancel running CI job" button is visible and clickable, but doesn't do anything with this stuck CI job.

  4. Preview of records for data deployment

    It would be great either via the UI or a downloadable file/CSV, if we could see all the records that will be migrated in the data deployment. We're able to see the list of successful or failed records after the fact, it'd be nice to see the list of proposed records before hand. This would help identify if we're in the correct ballpark, say 500 records vs. 5000, and not knowing that until after the deployment gets attempted.

  5. add an account based autonumber field to deployment that could be used as a friendly reference

    This could be automatically prefixed to friendly name of the deployment.

    Sth like "000035"

    Could be a simple counter (that I see you have implemented "This is your NNth deployment...").

    If the autonumber would pop up automatically then I would not need to figure out a reference and type it myself.

    Currently, info that potentially could be used: datetime (too long) , url (way too long)

  6. Ability to Export SFDC Fields into a CSV File

    Would it be possible to get a feature where we can download the fields into a csv file?

  7. Use external script/template for masking data

    I would love to be able to use my own script/template when doing just data (not having the compliance option) to select what fields I want to mask and the format for how I want to mask them. I will explain more.

    When doing a data deployment (data seeding) to our developer sandboxes, I would like to be able to use an external script/template for masking data. In my script/template would like to be able to set the format for the masking and how much of the value to mask. For instance maybe I want to mask a phone number…

  10. Apply masking of certain data across backups GDPR compliance

    It would be great if records that were marked with certain GDPR attributes, possibly 'GDPR Removal = TRUE' that the backups could apply arbitrary data masking across all historical backups for email and phone number fields

  11. Show the name of the draft I am working on

    Would be nice to see the name of the draft I'm working on while I'm working on it. Oftentimes working on multiple things at once, this can get really confusing.

  12. Re-validate a deployment after failure without returning to compare

    Would love the ability to re-validate a deployment after making changes to the target org. I notice this a lot if there's a username issue that needs fixed in the target, I'm able to fix the issue without refreshing the comparison, but still have to return to the compare, go through the automated fixes, and then re-validate the deployment.

  13. 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.

  14. Rename drafts after they're created

    It would be really nice to be able to rename drafts after they've been created. Sometimes users will name things differently, and it would be nice to be able to clean this up.

  15. I would like the ability to change filtered metadata to their API names

    I recently had an internal business conversation to clarify what would and wouldn't be included in our new CI/CD process leveraging gearset to push to orgs. When we had this conversation we used the Metadata API names to discuss and then when I went to implement it in Gearset I saw that the filters are actually some translated 'friendly' names.
    This is of course fine for most use cases, but it made it really difficult to make sure nothing is being missed when setting up the CI/CD filter type.

    I would kindly ask that you implement some switch to allow…

  18. Make Data Deployments Invocable (Salesforce APEX)

    As a feature to enhance data deployments, make them invocable by Salesforce APEX (or other tooling) whenever a Sandbox is refreshed. Salesforce has a configuration to let the user specify an APEX trigger/class to run upon Sandbox creation. That could call the data deployments to run on the freshly minted sandbox, seeding it with data. This would enhance automation.

    There are tools out there (like SFApex) that do something similar.

  19. 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.

  20. Display API name and friendly name of permissions within Analyzer messages

    when Gearset Analyzer tells you that you should consider removing a permission from the deployment, it displays the API name of the permission but often this doesn't tell you what item in the Setup UX you need to check on

    example:

    ContentHubUser is actually the permission for Files Connect Cloud My suggestion is that Gearset take advantage of this resource http://www.fishofprey.com/2020/10/mappings-between-salesforce-permission.html and display both the API name and the UX name in parens - such as :
    ContentHubUser (Files Connect Cloud)
