  1. Gearset API to externally trigger Gearset actions

    It would be incredibly helpful to trigger Gearset comparisons, validations, deployments, etc. from an external source using an API. Our team uses GitHub for our VCS, which provides the perfect opportunity to:
    1. design webhooks to validate changes in order to approve a Pull Request
    2. design webhooks to automatically deploy changes to an org once the PR is approved.

    Additionally, CI tools such as Jenkins, TravisCI, TeamCity, etc could use such an API to design complex builds that still employ Gearset, but use the external tool for additional actions outside of what Gearset provides for their CI features.

    • Provide the option to ignore whitespace differences in Apex

      It would be great to have more control over the diff process - particularly to be able to ignore whitespace changes.

      If I've made an actual function change to a class, and also auto-indented it, then it would be a lot easier to see the important change if I could hide the whitespace-only changes.

      Having the ability to suppress whitespace-only changes on the list of changed objects would be really useful, too.

        Thanks for the suggestion.

        We have plans to improve the way the diff viewer handles changes and whitespace in the future, though it’s not currently under development.

        Thanks,
        Jason.

      • Add an auto-save feature while building deployment packages

        As Gearset is run through a web browser, if the browser happens to freeze while a package is being built, you don't have the opportunity to save it as a Draft Deployment. An auto-save feature would allow someone to pick up where they left off, or when the last auto-save was done, without having to start from scratch.

        • Add merge functionality to the diff tool

          Extend the diff tool to allow the user to perform a merge, creating a new version of the component that contains some changes from the source version and some changes from the target version. This would be very useful in a team development scenario where multiple devs are working on features in individual dev sandboxes and then pushing completed features into an integration sandbox.

            I'd like to be able to name 'Pairs' of orgs so I don't have to re-select them, like 'DEV to UAT' or 'HOTFIX to Production'

              Thanks for the suggestion. We can definitely look into this.

              Would you expect to create these pairs from the compare screen, or the manage orgs screen?

              Thanks,
              Jason.

            • Provide individual class code coverage statistics

              Running tests displays overall org code coverage... it would be cool if you could provide individual class code coverage statistics as well, so we could get a good idea of what classes / triggers need attention

              • Commit-by-commit deployment

                As you are giving an option to trigger the CI job based on repository commit, it would make more sense to only compare the source and target based on the commit items and consider the commit changes for deployment based on your selection of either new, modified or deleted and the comparison filter(which can be optional in this case).

                This will help in reducing the chances of overriding the changes of other teams working in a shared environment or an environment not in sync with the branch.

                There can be other scenarios where we maintain managed package items in the…

                • Allow other Enterprise Users who do not own the CI Job to run it

                  Enterprise Users can only "Run Now" Jobs that they own. If the Source and Destination Org are shared, allow other enterprise users to run the job.

                  • Ability to chose multiple targets for a deployment

                    It would be nice to be able to deploy to multiple environments all at once from one source.

                    • 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).

                        It would be beneficial to be able to include other logic operators such as:

                        LIKE

                        • Refresh Comparison should have an option: "Selected Files only"

                          A common use case is:
                          1. Compare default(66) source and target
                          2. Select some files
                          3. Deploy
                          4. Get some error indicative of either missing file or out-of-date file(s)
                          5. Fix file(s) in underlying org/source branch.
                          6. "Back to results" Optionally mark additional files as selected.
                          7. "Refresh Comparison"

                          This takes too long, you just want the selected files to compare (and really, just get on with deploying). You don't want to wait for both source and target metadata to load and compare. You don't want to uncheck/check specific metadata components that represent your selected files. You just want a…

                            I have certain metadata which is broken or dangerous to migrate from a dev org, I'd like to exclude it from this and subsequent releases. If I could 'right click' and ignore it that would be good.

                                When comparing flows (processes) between environments, Gearset appears to try to match on flow version number, even though different environments are likely to have different numbers. It seems like it would probably be more helpful if the comparisons were between just the active versions.

                                  I have noticed that in some scenarios, user profiles cannot be created, deleted or updated. In addition, some pieces such as user license cannot be updated due to the Salesforce architecture. To create a new profile with a specific license, we would have to clone an existing profile that has the correct license and then update the permissions accordingly. When deleting a profile, first we need to ensure that the profile is not associated with a user (it doesn't matter whether the user is active or inactive) and then the profile can be deleted. When updating a profile, based on…

                                  • Adding Custom destructive

                                    ANT is unable to change the type on an EmailTemplate from HTML to CUSTOM. To solve that we need to add the EmailTemplate first to the destructive package to have it removed and then add it again with the package.xml
                                    Since this file is not deleted but just changed. It doesn't show up in the deleted items tab.

                                    We should add an option to the "Selected Items"/"Changed Items" list to opt-in for adding that to the destructive.

                                    • Allow for custom metadata permissions to be included with a single click when custom fields are being deployed

                                      For example; when adding new custom fields, you generally have to add the permissions as an additional line item to the deployment. Having a checkbox or something that will have gearset automatically add the permissions associated with the metadata currently in the deployment list would speed up the process. Users should also be allowed to deselect lines that were automatically added.

                                      • Display which apex triggers have low code coverage if a deployment fails

                                        It would be great if Gearset can surface which Apex trigger has 0% code coverage when a deployment fails.

                                        • Initiate comparison from package.xml

                                          I'd like to be able to drop a package.xml file on the New comparison screen. Doing that will have two effects.

                                          First off, it will drive the selection of which metadata types to include in the comparison.

                                          Secondly, it will automatically select the components listed in the package.xml on the comparison results page.

                                          This provides a really good way to expediting a deployment, since package.xml are used pretty universally by both IDEs and standard deployment tools (including packages).It also helps me take advantage of the intelligence of automatic dependency and all of the other goodies that Gearset has. Basically I…
