  1. Allow CI to do a quick deploy

    Allow gearset CI to do a quick deploy either by default or via a setting on the Job definition.
    Our tests run for nearly 90 minutes and are currently run twice in succession causing a lot of frustration. Once when a PR is validated and then when it is merged and deployed.

  2. Allow me to exclude metadata.

    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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Add an option to ignore package version differences in Apex classes

    I see many differences between apex classes where the only difference is the package version(s), no difference in the code itself. It would be nice to have an option to filter these out so that only the apex classes are shown where the code is different.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. Allow CI deployment notifications to the specific user who made the source control commit that prompted the deployment

    We have CI jobs that fire on commits to a source control repository. At the moment, there is no way to email the specific individual who made the commit that prompted the deployment, so we have to notify everyone involved in the project whenever a deployment fails. If we could just notify the individual who made the commit (plus the deployment manager), it would reduce noise considerably.

    Please add this feature.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. 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)

  19. When the difference between Source and Target, on a particular line, is only in the formatting. Highlight in a different color

    From what I can determine you are categorizing the differences as follows:
    Code in Source, not in Target – Highlighted in Green
    Code in Target not in Source – Highlighted in Red
    Difference between code in Source and Target – Highlighted in Yellow

    When the difference between Source and Target, on a particular line, is only in the formatting. It would be nice if that was highlighted in a different color than yellow (perhaps grey). It would speed up the review of the code knowing a certain color was only a formatting difference.

  20. Add an option to ignore location changes for Flow

    Hi, when reviewing changes for flows that are being deployed, it would be great to have a toggle option to hide or alternately color location changes which are just the location of elements on the flow canvas editor.
    <locationX>1353</locationX>
    <locationY>1305</locationY>

    Sometimes there are hundreds of location changes and it obscures the important information about what else changed.
