  1. Make Custom Filters a Top-Level Menu Item

    Filters are arguably the best part of gearset, especially with the support for RegEx. It is kind of a bummer that they are tucked away in a modal that can only be reached by clicking into a dropdown. Ideally you could just go to Hamburger > Metadata Deployments > Custom Filters and be routed to a dedicated page.

  2. Show JIRA Title when selecting tickets to post to

    As a release manager, when I go to select the JIRA tickets to associate to, I need to be able to see not just the ticket number, but also the Title to allow me to select the correct tickets without having to guess or consult another resource or use trial and error.

    Currently there looks like this idea was implemented in Pipelines, but that interface is somewhat broken, and typing in the full number does not result in the ticket showing up, could use some love, but is the right idea for providing context.

  3. Make Pipelines a Top-Level Menu Item

    This is a less-good, but arguably easier to implement, version of my request for customizable landing pages. It takes a few clicks to get to pipelines and, since it's the place I live most often inside of Gearset these days, I'd love it if it was a menu option that is parallel to "Continuous Integration" so I could get there in fewer clicks.

  4. Allow me to configure my default landing page on logging in

    Specifically, I use the Pipelines most of the time and would love for that to be there as soon as I login. While my use case is Pipelines specific, I would guess that others might want a different page when they login, so it would be nice to be able to configure this on a per-account basis.

  5. Enable source control as source/target in Data Deployments

    It would be great if we could add source control as an option for Data Deployments, this will be useful in cases where we want to backup copies of CPQ record data which manage configurations to our source control repository.

  6. extend the GearSet public API to include Data deployments between Sandboxes and Scratch Orgs

    Allow triggering Data deployments via the public API to eliminate having to sync data manually. This also includes triggering creation of Scratch Orgs via the Gearset API so that Gearset can instantly recognize them them.

    The workflow we would like to automate is: feature branch is checked out which triggers a CI/CD system pipeline to create a corresponding scratch org, do a metadata deployment from a test sandbox, and sync data from the same test sandbox. This allows us to create on-demand full copies of the environment for purposes of E2E testing (inc. external integrations) and feature development that requires…

  7. Support deployment of password and session policies via Gearset

    According to the Salesforce developer link https://help.salesforce.com/s/articleView?id=000349181&type=1

    Password and Session policies include a numeric code which is equal to a epoc timestamp. This timestamp will be different in each org. In order for deployment to succeed, the timestamp code in the metadata name must match the target org. Since all orgs are different, there isn't an automatic way to do this.

    Please create a feature in gearset that will automatically replace the timestamp numeric code with that of the target org so that we can use gearset to deploy password and sessions policies.

  8. Hide re-ordering in a Monitoring job

    We have a monitoring job set up to check production changes. However, re-ordering in some components are popping up as false positive. For example, Entitlement Process and Site.com. Everyday I get an email saying # of changes have been made on production. I'd like to not see these false positives in the # so that I do not need to go to each comparison every day just to realize that it's a re-ordering issue.

  9. Archiving and restore process

    Data archiving for storing records that can be easily accessed when marked as archived at an off-premise location. A backup and restore would be overkill when there is a need to store only partial records or a combination of fields from records in different objects. Restoring to a new object that does not interfere with existing objects would be ideal.

  10. Data Deployment Template that supports complex rules

    Looking to be able to setup a Data Deployment template that supports complex rules with record limits.
    For example...
    - Select 100 accounts that have been modified recently that belong to division A that contain at least 1 contact, 1 opportunity and 1 activity.
    - Select 100 accounts that have been modified recently that belong to division B that contain at least 1 contact, 1 opportunity and 1 activity.

  11. Have an ability to modify message which is posted to Slack channel.

    It would be nice to have the ability to modify this notification message somehow.
    E.g. include a number of PR which was merged into the main branch. Or remove extra information such number of deployed components.

  12. Delegate Access by Comparison

    Provide an additional delegate access option: be able to grant this at a comparison level to a user vs at the org level (situation is predominately experienced for Production comparisons/deployments). Granting access at an org level gives too much access (CI jobs, etc) for some users so it would be ideal to have a narrower scope.

  13. See when a commit validation was deployed or not (For CI validation Jobs)

    When you go to the validation only CI jobs section within the Continues Integration part we usually have a CI job targeting a prod environment, you can see all validations succeeded and the commit attached to such validation, each CI job run contains 3 options:
    View comparison
    View Summary
    Deploy

    Then if the validation passed and the code indeed was merged from the feature branch to the master branch (Which would have triggered the actual CI job run), how would you be able to identify wether a merged pull request was deployed or not within gearset?

    For me it's very…

  14. Allow for Object Deployments without subcomponents to git

    When deploying an object to git currently there is no support to ONLY deploy the object metadata.
    We have a large managed package that your code requires the .object file for an object in that managed package to exist for me to deploy fields or other customizations for said object git -> org. When I deploy org -> git to get the .object file into my repo it also grabs all the fields on the managed package object which I don't want/need.
    I don't want the fields and I need to specifically get it from the target org because if…

  15. Analyzer message when recordtype is deleted but still referenced in listview filter

    There are occasions where you might have a ListView filter that looks like:

    Opportunity.RecordType equals Type1,Type2,Type3

    When you delete rectype Type2, the ListView filter changes to:

    Opportunity.RecordType equals Type1,0123600000055CZAAY,Type3 in the source org

    The analyzer should tell you that your source org is corrupted.

    Would apply to deletion of recordType and all included metadata type components that allow for filtering of recordtypes: Workflow, Criteria-based-sharing, Reports, ListViews, etc.

  16. Pipeline automatic back promote

    When using pipelines, it would be helpful to have the option to automatically back promote changes through the pipeline. For example, we currently have a CI job that pushes specific changes that admins are allowed to make directly in production into our master branch. We then have a Github Action that automatically merges commits to our master branch to the other branches in the pipeline, so that everything is synced. However, in order to turn on pipeline, we have to turn off our automated merge action, because pipeline creates a bunch of PRs when the automation runs. This forces someone…

  17. Customize CI job commit message

    When a CI job pushes changes to source control, it always uses the message "CI deployment from job <CI job name>". It would be very helpful to be able to customize this message.

  18. change monitoring for scratch orgs

    The Change Monitoring feature only supports normal orgs (sandbox, developer, prod). It does not support scratch orgs

    For use cases where developers inadvertently let their scratch org expire with pending, uncommitted work, it would be nice to recover the work before and after the scratch org expires
