  1. User Last loggged in and User Usage

    It would be great to see when a team member last logged in on the user account management page. It would also be great to see like a report or extension on the user page where we can see user usage information. Like number of compares, deployments, etc.. may when last compare was done.

  2. Optimize "Refresh Comparison" to only pull metadata that has been changed since the last comparison

    Currently, clicking Refresh Comparison does not optimize the comparison in any way, it just allows you to skip selecting some of the configuration steps from running a new comparison.

    This means that it takes the same amount of time actually comparing the orgs.

    It would be nice if on clicking of "refresh comparison" the logic didn't run a full compare and instead just looked at metadata that had been changed since the last compare in order to reduce the comparison time.

  3. Skip CI Jobs to source control when there are no changes.

    After setting up a CI job from a Salesforce sandbox to a Bitbucket repo, it looks like the CI job always runs a commit, even if there are no actual changes. It would be great to not have this happen to avoid having many commits where there are no actual changes.

  4. 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…

  7. Allow save into a draft deployment after Refresh Comparison

    Use case:

    Source is master, target is org
    Create draft deployment between master and org; Save
    ...time passes, new items are added to master
    Open draft deployment
    Refresh Comparison to see new items in master
    Select new items
    Click Save Draft Deployment --you have to create a new version (and no obvious way to even see the current draft's name without opening a new tab)

    Seems like you should be able to save back into the same draft after refresh comparison (or at least have option to do so).

    When you create a new version of the draft; you have…

  8. Publish dynamic data with Outgoing Webhook in CI deployment jobs

    As of now we are able to send only static text as a part of outgoing payload in CI Integration jobs. We want this data to be dynamic for each deployment.
    For example: We need to send the information like (JIRA User Story number, GIT commit hashes and descriptions from the pull requests being merged, etc.)
    This will allow us to publish information of successful deployments to external system.

  9. Possibility to deploy to another sandboxe when a ci job passed

    When configuring a CI job, we need an option to set a deployment to another sandboxe when the deployment or test classes run successfully in the current CI Job.
    Ex: when a push to a branch on VCS triggers a CI job to deploy to a sandboxe like QA (with test classes run), we also have the possibility to set an auto deployment to staging sanboxe when the the job on QA passed successfully.

  10. Improve detection of custom fields on Managed Package objects coming from Git

    If I have a managed package object in Git, Gearset does not recognize it as managed package code in its comparison to a Salesforce org. This is a problem since it may not recognize a change if a custom field has been added to the managed package object.

  11. would be cool to be able to "ignore" certain differences

    would be cool to be able to "ignore" certain differences... e.g. encryption. So if encryption is enabled in a Production Org but not in a Sandbox (not sure if Encryption is possible for SBs), you have a difference for every custom field <encrypted>true/false</encrypted> which is really irritating.

  12. Add RecordType support for PersonAccount

    Problem analyzer is always trying to remove my picklist values from any RecordTypes on PersonAccount. I am forced to use a custom "Problem analyzer template" where "Remove picklists from record type" is disabled.

    Suppose I have a field called pickme: Account.Pickme--pc | Contact.Pickme--c it shows up in the record type XML as Pickme--c, and it seems like gearset tries to find a picklist on account with that exact API name, which will of course fail. My ask is that rather than raising an error at this point, GS should repeat this check on the contact object where it would find…

  14. 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.

  15. Build Comparison Manifest from pull request

    It would be cool if the custom deployment configuration could be driven from a Pull Request . For example, in GitHub, the Pull Request knows which files were changed and approved. Why not use that list to instantly populate a comparison to create a deployable manifest to go from source control to org?

  16. Auto-generate deployment note and git commit message

    When Gearset makes a commit, it defaults to a blank deployment note and blank git commit message. Although I can edit this , it would be awesome if you can merge in details from the deploy to the commit (like components changed, what salesforce user made the change etc)

  18. 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.

  19. Allow deployment of unlocked packages

    At the moment, you can select "Installed package" as a metadata type to compare, and I think you can use this to install a package (without installation key).

    However, unless I'm missing them, 2nd Generation Unlocked packages don't appear in a comparison like this.

    It would be really useful to be able to deploy 2GP with Gearset because I sometimes need to make metadata changes at the same time as installing

    e.g. I'm moving some old functionality into an Unlocked package and that old code has logic in the triggers. I want to be able to delete the old triggers…

  20. 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…
