  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Deploy detected changes to other orgs

        Being able to detect and roll back changes to orgs through the change monitoring is cool, but what I'd really like is to deploy detected changes to other orgs.

        For example, if we detect a new configuration change to Production, being able to clone that change back down into our Sandboxes directly from the monitoring snapshot would be a real time saver. Or if someone deleted something in Production, being able to make that destructive change down into the Sandbox.

        It would help us remove the step of running the comparison and pushing the changes after seeing a monitoring job…

        • Be able to create a CI Job to auto-commit (changes between two orgs) to source control

          We have both admins and developers working within our SFDC environments.

          Admins typically deploy across environments, so being able to create a CI job to keep the repo updated with these org-to-org changes would be ideal.

          • Add a Save As to Save Draft Deployment

            Add a Save As or an alternative way to create multiple packages from the same comparison. I have an existing comparison run and I want to stage the deployments, deploying some today and the rest next week. It would be more efficient to save both packages now as I am going through them, saving one for example as Dep120916.1 with half of my selected object and another one called Dep120916.2 with the remaining objects to be deployed later.

            • Naming Org Pairs

              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.

              • Ability to compare and migrate object data between ORG's

                The metadata compare and deploy is outstanding and works well. What would save configuration and release engineers even more time would be an object data compare / sync. Sometimes, salesforce releases may only require a data migration. Hopefully, this feature will get a few upvotes from the community as well.

                  We have begun investigating adding data migration support into Gearset and this forms part of our roadmap for 2017. We’ll keep you posted with progress as we work on this set of features.

                • 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

                  • Allow Source Metadata To Be Customised Prior To Deployment To Target

                    In order to support a development pipeline (e.g. Dev Environment -> Staging Environment -> Production) allow Metadata from the source Org to be modified before deployment to the target Org.

                    e.g. I have a RemoteSiteSetting in source that points at https://dev.example.com and in my staging environment I need this to point to https://stg.example.com

                      Thanks for the suggestion Paul.

                      It’s something we should be able to do, but we need to do a little bit of investigation first to work out exactly how this feature should look and what the functionality would be.

                      Thanks,
                      Jason.

                    • 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.

                            HI Celio,

                            Thanks for the suggestion.

                            Could you explain a little more about the primary reason for wanting to store these failures?

                            Where would you expect these results to be stored – in a separate tab in the history set, or alongside the other deployments in your history?

                            We currently store failed scheduled deployments in your validated package history. We can certainly look at whether we could expand this to cover manually started deployments as well.

                            The reason behind our initial decision not to store these in the app is that the user would be using Gearset at the time of the failure, so we would prompt them to fix the deployment then and there. Our draft deployment feature, which allows you to save and build packages over time, might also help to work around this requirement for you?

                            Thanks,
                            Jason.

                          • Be able to require a commit message for deployments

                            Sometimes a user may forget to add in a commit message before deploying, so the history in our source control is "no commit message" which is not editable. Can we add a feature to be able to turn on marking commit messages as a requirement for deploy?

                            • Disable scheduled tests (temporary)

                              We're currently using this tool primarily for nightly unit test monitoring. However, some nights we don't want the tests to run because we'll be doing after-hours upgrades and other maintenance.

                              As far as we know, currently the only way to 'disable' the automatic test run is to delete/disconnect the app entirely. However this is not ideal, as we have to re-add/re-auth to turn it back on.

                              If Gearset had a checkbox next to each org/environment that we could enable/disable the job at will, that would be ideal.

                              • For CI Jobs initiated by Github, dynamically send CI failure / success email to the user who committed to the repo.

                                Currently, we can only specify a list of users to email, a Slack channel to update, or a Chatter group to post to when a CI job is successful or fails. If there are multiple notifications to a number of people, it's likely they will filter out these messages, so being able to notify the person who the CI Job is most relevant to would be a good improvement.

                                • Ability to select Field Sets as a separate item

                                  It seems that Field Sets are deployed by deploying the object that they are related to.

                                  This doesn't work well for me because I have admins changing objects in production, but I often need to deploy a Field Set to go with my code.

                                  Currently, I'm jumping out of Gearset and deploying a Change Set with just the Field Sets, then coming back to Gearset to deploy my code.

                                  It would be nice if I could select just the Field Sets and deploy them without changing anything else related to the object.

                                  • Allow deployment of Sharing Rules by Rule not by Object

                                    In change sets we can pick individual sharing rules to push (specific ones on an object). However through gearset we can only push the whole object.

                                    • Save previously entered comparison filters

                                      I am currently using a standard regex filter each time I do a comparison. It has become quite lengthy such that I can't easily remember it. I have ended up saving it in a separate text file and have to open it, then copy and paste it into Gearset each time I do a comparison. Pretty cumbersome.

                                      It would be nice if the Filter... text box on the comparison results screen was a combo box that when clicked, dropped down a list of recently used filters. Each entry in the list should be removable (like with a little 'x' icon…

                                      • Filter on Columns in comparison screen

                                        On comparison screen, would be nice if we can filter on each column on top of standard string filter

                                        Example use case: Show me Custom object with last modified by me with modified date within this week.

                                        Can be achieved if we can filter on "metadata type", "Changed on", "Changed by" Columns

                                          We’ve just rolled out most of this functionality – you can now filter using a text search or by selecting values, on a per-column basis.

                                          The text filter also supports regex – just use the prefix “regex:” and then enter your regex filter. If you want to exclude items matching a term, use the prefix “not:”.

                                          The only thing remaining is better support for the date column – you can filter it using the same text filters, but not yet by date range. We’re hoping to add that in soon but I can’t give you a solid timeframe for that.

                                        • Provide a way to init a sandbox

                                          It would be nice if there was a quick way of init'ing a new sandbox that matches either what was in source control or an existing sandbox.

                                          Currently, I need to run a comparison between the existing source and the new sandbox and then I can try the deploy, but it would be nice if the compare step was not needed and I could simply say 'overwrite what is in the sandbox with what is in the specified source'
