  1. Compare and Deploy Attachments and Files

    Please add the ability to use the "Compare and Deploy" for Attachments and Files. The ability to migrate PDFs, image files, word docs, and excel spreadsheets would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!

  2. Delete records from the target org during a data deployment

    Provide options to delete records from Target Org. This will help clean up of test data and reload from Source.

  3. Select the fields to deploy during a data deployment

    Hi we use the data deployment feature is it possible to only select some fields to deploy data from one org to another and not always all the fields on an object.

  4. Allow components to be added or removed from an data deployment template

    Currently when a data deployment template is created, there is no way to edit the template after it is saved so that components can be added or removed. It would be helpful if we could modify the components in the template without having to create the template from scratch again.

  5. Add Support for Pre/Post Data Deployment Scripts

    Some of my more complex data objects require that I turn off Validation Rules during deployment, then back on again after deployment.

    Options that would work:

    • BEST: List of Validation rules under each object and and option to temporarily disable on a one-by-one basis during the deployment. A "Disable All Validation Rules During Deployment" option would be helpful if this feature is implemented.

    • BETTER: Ability to specify metadata xml to apply to each sobject pre and post deployment.

    • GOOD: Ability to specify anonymous Apex to execute pre and post deployment. This would involve a callout to the Metadata API, which…

  6. Schedule data deployments

    The current data deployment functionality works fine for one-off deployments, but if you are trying to keep specific data in sync across multiple orgs, the ability to schedule data deployments for a given time in the future would let you deploy on a recurring basis automatically. Becomes especially helpful when combined with the current data filtering options.

  7. Set fields to a specific value during a data deployment

    When deploying Data, it would be nice to be able to set field values. It could be just to null them or set a value. It could be part of the configuration or data masking.

  8. Ability to activate / deactivate Flows / Processes as part of the meta data and/or data deployment process

    It should be possible to have gearset to deactivate flows and/or processes based on a selection. And to roll-back afterwards. Similar to what has been created here: https://sfswitch.herokuapp.com/

  9. Enable Field Level Mapping for Data Deployments

    Currently there is no field mapping option available for Data Deployment of Objects. This is a big blocker if we want to migrate selective fields data across Salesforce instances.

  11. Support user record migration from production to sandbox or scratch orgs

    New users are often created in the production org that need to be monitored and brought back to sandboxes as well. It would be great if the data deployment tool could support moving user records from prod to sandboxes or scratch orgs.

  12. Allow complex filters and child relationships on filters for data loading

    Allow complex filters and child relationships on filters for data loading. For example, filter the Account to only load if the Owner is an Active user in the system.

  13. Allow record data load from CSV file

    While it is nice to deploy record data from org to org with Gearset, it would also be nice to be able to deploy data from a CSV file, with the ability to custom map the headers. Native Salesforce Dataloader has this capability, as well as many 3rd party tools out there. Please incorporate this capability into Gearset.

  14. Allow Data Deployment to filter lookup fields on fetched data

    Currently, when doing a data deployment Gearset will let you know of all the referenced objects from the object you selected. What it doesn't do is the opposite of that - let you know all the objects that reference your object with a lookup.

    It'd be great if we could add a filter to utilize some data pulled in a fetch/query during data deployment.

    ex. field (TeamMember.ProjectLookup_c in {returned Project results in query in previous step of data deployment).

  15. 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…

  17. Select all objects in a data deployment

    It would be useful to select all objects in the data deploy screen to make it faster to select a large number of objects (even better would be the ability to group objects and select whole groups at once)

  19. Create a Data Deployment Template for migrating Territory Management (1.0 & 2.0)

    I would like to see a gearset defined template for Territory Management in Salesforce. I am definitely in need of this functionality as it seems to be a post deployment step once you deployed all Territory Management metadata.

    in ETM 2.0 for example, after deploying the related metadata you need to deploy all related records for UserTerritory2Association Object, this contains who are the users assigned to a territory.

    Not a big template but can be a good thing to have as a preset.

  20. Allow serial deployment instead of parallel

    When executing a data deployment, an 'Unable to lock row' error can occur if multiple transactions try to lock the same record in Salesforce.
    Because the batches are executed parallel, the chances of getting this error high, depending on the situation.
    For example the master record in a master:detail relationship will always get locked when a DML is executed on the child record.
    If two batches are executed at the same time and they both have at least 1 record that references the same parent, then a locking error will occur.
