  1. 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.

      • 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.

        • Combine multiple deploy packages into one

          It would be nice to have the ability to select multiple packages in the deployment history, and clone all of them into one comprehensive deployment. This would help when there are multiple features moved at different times to a QA environment, but would like to move them all at once to Production.

          • 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.

            • Allow multiple ownership in Gearset

              Currently only the creator (owner) of Schedule Test, Monitor Orgs and Manage Orgs can edit these activities. It would be helpful if we could designate more than 1 Owner for these activities. Similar to granting access to the various orgs (Comparison, Validation& Deployment) it makes sense to also include an Owner access as well.

              If this is not possible, having a transfer ownership button would be helpful for each activity.

              Thanks!

              • 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?

                • 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

                  • 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.

                      It would be nice to be able to set a default custom filter.
                      Since the default "Default comparison" filter doesn't suffice for me.

                      • 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.

                        • Compare active versions of flows (processes)

                          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.

                          • Deploying Profiles - Create, Update, Delete

                            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…

                              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.

                                  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.

                                • Include/exclude individual metadata in templates by managed package

                                  The Include Managed Packages option right now is a global one-- and, while nice, that doesn't cover situations where you want some metadata of a Managed Package (eg. a Profile permission) to be included, but not others.

                                  Currently users have to laboriously deselect data related to Managed Package in certain areas (eg. Static Resources, Permission Sets, Custom Tabs) because it'll always fail to deploy.

                                  The ability to include Managed Packages for some metadata, but not others, in templates would solve this issue.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Allow Monitoring Jobs on Source Code Repositories

                                        Currently, Enterprise users can create monitoring jobs on sandboxes, so that they may be notified when a sandbox's metadata changes. It'd be great to be able to perform the same monitoring action against source code repositories (GitHub!).

                                        An example use case would be detecting when undesired metadata types enter into the repository. This is important because CI jobs will fail on certain metadata types, so we want to ensure that they never make it into source to begin with. Additionally, our business has decided that some metadata types should never be captured into source.
