  1. Allow retrying failed validations and deployments

    I'm often running into the situation where the validation failed either due to transient circumstances in the org, or due to the org settings being incorrectly configured. In this scenario, I would like to simply retry the validation using the same package, and I'd look for that option somewhere here:

    https://app.gearset.com/deployments/validations

    Running a new comparison (using the "clone package" option) is unnecessary, takes a lot of time. Also using the "view comparison" option is overkill. I would rather not go through those motions of recalling the comparison results from cache, going through the analysis once again, etc. Because I know…

  2. provide creation of immutable deployment package

    I would like a way for Gearset to create an immutable deployment package that can then be deployed to different orgs. This immutable package should contain a copy of the selected objects, list of unit tests to be executed and not allow variation in the deployment except selecting the target org. This would also save time by not requiring a new comparison to run for each target org.

  3. Allow notification for long running jobs

    Allow a for a notification to be sent when a Continuous Integration job runs longer than N minutes. Most of our jobs tend to complete in under one minute, so if a job runs longer than 30 minutes, being notified would be helpful.

  4. Better handle Shares on Report and Dashboard Folders in pre-validation

    during the pre-validation of a deployment, validate that the shares exist for report and dashboard folders. Currently if they do not exist in the target they fail during deployment. Only option today is to clean them up after error in source org and then redeploy. Instead, it would be useful if gearset removed them during the pre-validation.

  5. Cruise control feed for Deployment Steps

    We are planning to let our team notify and keep informed about the deployment steps status just that they can stay informed about it. These are non-Gearset users.

    Can we have a monitoring feed for Deployment steps that take place from Compare and deploy Screen 1 which contains basic deployment details (Source and Target). So as an When we progress with the deployment steps, it will keep it updated. Similar what you have for Unit Test monitoring feed. (Test monitoring Cruise Control feed)

  6. custom object translation of the Product2 object

    The custom object translation of the Product2 object, specifically, is not behaving like the other custom object translations. So when I changed the label of this standard Object : Product2 (Set-up -> rename tabs and labels)
    i can't find it in Gearset. I have to make this change manuelly.

  7. Add problem analyzers to the data deployment app

    Much like the problem analyzers for metadata deployments in Gearset, it would be great if you could add a problem analysis feature for data deployments after having configured what you want to deploy.

    Some scenarios will almost certainly cause the data deployment to either totally fail or only partially deploy some of the records and skip records it can't deploy. Providing automatic fixes (e.g. choosing not to include duplicates) would improve the number of deployments that work 100% of the time.

  8. Clean up source/destination drop downs to be consistent across all UI elements.

    The drop down lists for picking source/destination are different in the UI.

    For example, in compare and deploy production salesforce connections are not in the list alphanumerically, they are appended to the bottom while in a clone deployment they are all listed alphanumerically.

    Just being picky, but consistency one way or another would be great.

  9. Problem analysers - to ignore the user config element

    On metadata deployments, I frequently struggle with Report Folders, Workflow Updates, and other configuration elements that have individual users assigned to them. The struggle is that individual users assigned to these config elements often do not exist in the target org. This results in the entire deployment failing, and many times, manually configuring the report, report folder, etc.

    A nice solution to this would be a new section on the Problem analysis screen that allows me to exclude the users from the config element that is being deployed.

    It is useful to call these scenarios out, because I need to…

  10. Give users the ability to update field/object permissions for specific profiles only

    The issue is, when promoting from one org to another and changing either Custom Object Permissions or Custom Field Permissions and if more than the profile you want has been changed, the extra profile changes get promoted anyway. So we need a way to control which profiles get applied when promoting field and object level security.

  11. Show *all* matching items on All Items, even if they haven't been changed.

    I couldn't find a field that I was looking for today, despite searching for it specifically, because it was hidden inside it's parent object. I understand that the reason for this was something to do with there being no difference on the field (and I appreciate that the reason is to avoid clogging up the screen!), but if you're searching for a specific field, I think it should really show up...

    Took me bothering someone on live chat to figure out what was going on.

  13. Optional ability to provide a warning when targeting a deployment to a Non-Developer Production Instance

    I'd love to be able to have an extra "warning" message when targeting certain orgs when clicking the "Deploy" button. The thought is that it provides an extra level of confirmation when targeting production, to help avoid mistakes. This could be an optional custom warning message set on a connection that if populated, a "Deployment Confirmation Message" is shown.

  14. Validation Failures - Show Error in Table

    In the new UI for Validation to view failed test classes error messages you must click into each failed class to view the details.

    The previous UI showed "part" of the error message within the table. This was extremely useful in identifying all of the "unique" errors that are occurring.

    IE: If 58 test classes fail from "4" unique issues -- then in order to determine that you may need to click into all 58 test classes or fix one at a time --> refresh --> validate.

    This is just a time save feature.

  15. Show history of changes for a component

    When performing forensic analysis regarding how or why something started working differently, it would be a great timesaver to be able to select a component and then be able to select the data comparisons for just that component. For example, select an apex class and then pick date dates so the system can display what changed. I would expect that this would be quicker than going into Monitoring Histories and picking each date and waiting for it to build the entire comparison of everything that changed and then having to find the component of interest.

    A follow on to this…

  16. Remind repo owner to upgrade metadata on SFDC version change

    Your blog post https://gearset.com/blog/mdapi-versioning-and-version-control says it all under the paragraph labeled "Upgradingyour repository's metadata"

    But there's no real reminder to tell the team that this is a meritorious idea. My suggestion is that for the first 30 days after PROD is updated, you could display (in color) some alert (or maybe introduce a messages feature) wherein you tell the team that the repo's package.xml is out of date (version wise) with PROD version and provide pointers on how to upgrade, including nuances like Flows (v44).

    It is too easy to get lazy and leave the repo metadata out of date…

  17. Enable Defaults or Recently Used on Clone Deployment Page

    When you clone a deployment package you have to select your Source details, but the selections do not default to the the last used settings or to a recently/commonly used settings. This is a minor annoyance but in other parts of GS you have the last selected options already selected based on user history, so hoping you can extend this to the Clone page

  18. Export snapshot of production org to git

    I'd like to be able to export a snapshot of all the metadata from my production org (include all components) to my git repository by clicking a single button.

    After every release, it's worth taking whole metadata export from the org to git for the next/on-going releases.

    For now, we have to create a couple of metadata projects to export the metadata to git, which is a tedious job and takes a lot of time.
