  1. Filter standard vs custom objects

    We sell a managed package and will never include standard objects in a comparison, and absolutely not in source control. When I'm running a compare against source control to check for changes, it will show all of the standard objects as "custom objects" which is not correct. I should have a way to filter out standard objects from the comparison.

  2. download the zip package at an earlier stage before analysis has taken place

    Download the zip package at an earlier stage before the analysis has taken place.
    In big Orgs with multiple teams working the analysis page takes sometimes to load so it would be a great addition if we can download the zip package file and modify it.

  3. Would like the ability to print the current comparison for selected objects before deploying

    I would like the ability to print the current comparison for selected objects before deploying to use for documentation purposes.

  4. Avoid going to Setup | Deployment status on "validate deployment don't run any tests"

    If you are deploying to PROD and
    a) You have Apex classes in your deployment
    b) You choose Validate Deployment - Don't run any tests

    The Validation will fail and Gearset will tell you to check the target org Setup | Deployment Status where as suggested, the most likely cause is test coverage failures.

    This is in fact true but it seems that Gearset could warn you before acting on a PROD deployment with non-test apex classes and 'don't run any tests' that this will be guaranteed to occur and give you a chance to reconsider your choice before wasting…

  5. Access to Critical Updates

    We use Gearset as our primary utility for managing various client orgs include Production and Sandboxes for Testing and Release Management. It would be great if there was also a way to access, review and potentially enable/disable any Critical Updates in any org from Gearset.

    However, I do understand that Critical Updates may not currently be accessible from the metadata API.

    Just a thought,
    Mike

  6. Provide a way to deploy push topics

    We have a push topic that we use but there is currently no easy way to deploy changes between orgs. Would it be possible to do this via Gearset?

  7. Echo source/target on Resolve Missing Dependencies page

    If you are using Gearset to deploy between multiple orgs/repos, you may find you have launched the analyzer on multiple tabs within the browser (or across browsers). Since this operation takes some minutes, when the page 'Resolve mIssing Dependencies' appears, you get no clue as to the source/target. In today's multi-tasking life of a developer, it is easy to get lost and forget which tab was for which deployment.

    Basically, the principle should be to echo the source/target in the header of all pages/dialogs - especially if the operation to arrive at that page is not 'instant' wherein the user…

  8. Add a copy to clipboard button for Deployment friendly name

    I find that I'm frequently copying to the clipboard the friendly name of the deployment into the notes of the next deployment or the friendly name of some other deployment. In addition to the pencil and delete buttons, add a copy to clipboard button

    Note I still support other User Voice suggestions like auto-copying the deployment notes from Deployment X to cloned deployment Y or auto-defaulting the friendly name of the deployment from the deployment notes.

  9. Enhanced Comparison filter - filter by difference count

    My use-case would somewhat be handled by separating code and xml differences, but I would like to be able to filter on difference count (or at least, easily see / sort by diff count).

    For example: We are updating the API version on all of our classes and triggers (about 279 files this go around) and I want to make sure that the API update is the only diff when doing a deployment. Or to be worded differently: only deploy files where the only difference is the API version.

  10. Support customer S3 buckets for storage

    Allowing customers to specify their own S3 buckets for storage could be beneficial for the product. This would give the customer enhanced security and control over their data.

  11. Avoid spurious Analyzer message for Permissions on required fields

    If you deploy permissions for, say Task.Type, Gearset deployment analyzer displays: "Exclude the following from the deployment - Field permissions for fields that are probably required fields on the target"

    Field Task.Type (V39) is not a required field. If one ignores the suggested exclusion, permissions deploy just fine.

    Elimination of spurious analyzer warnings increases utility of the remaining analyzer messages that are the raison d'etre of Gearset

  12. View email templates that are part of a managed package folder in comparison

    Hey guys,

    I am not sure if this is an actual issue or not but I will ask the question to see if I am missing something :)

    When comparing email templates, the compare will return both email templates and folders. I have noticed that in my case, email templates that are part of a managed folder do not return. We can see the folder and sync the folder settings, but no templates. If we move the templates to a non-managed folder we can see the templates. Has anybody encountered anything similar?

    Thanks!

    Richard

  13. Add an analyzer/repair option for ConnectedApps w/ ConsumerKeys

    ConnectedApps are part of the Default 64 metadata set. yet if you try to deploy a ConnectedApp that uses a ConsumerKey in the source org, you will get a deployment error either "The consumer key is already taken" if target org has that ConnectedApp already or "You cannot provide a Consumer Key" if a new ConnectedApp

    Since the deployment is going to fail, there should be a Gearset Analyzer that checks for this and removes from the deployment

  14. Properly handle SFDC change of API name for Order "Activate" button on layouts

    CustomObject 'Order' Page layouts from orgs created from orgs prior to V39 may have in the layout metadata <excludebuttons>Activate</excludeButtons>

    For V39 (and possibly earlier) orgs, 'Activate' is no longer the OOTB API name for the button with label 'Activate'. The button API name is ActivateOrder. Hence, deployment fails with error "In field: excludeButtons, no such standard action:Activate"

    There is no workaround except to exclude the Order layout from the Gearset Selected Objects. This is not a good workaround for a commonly-used OOTB SFDC Standard object.

  15. Suggestion - make comparison highlight colors configurable

    The background highlight colors for differences are much too light to be able to be seen clearly when viewing in APEX mode. Colors are much brighter in XML mode. Request - allowing these colors to be configurable. Thanks for the consideration.

  16. Clarify installation of managed packages and allow opt-out

    It appears that if there are dependencies in the deployment that require a Managed Package to be installed/updated, that package is automatically installed/updated before the deployment takes place.

    This is great, but it needs more clarity and control for the user.

    It would be nice to know if Managed Packages are going to be installed as the result of a deployment, and if so, opt-in or opt-out of that process. It would be great if opting-out also displayed the related metadata with the dependency so those could be excluded as well.

    This may also avert some errors where metadata needs…

  17. Display org authorisation errors

    When I link my Salesforce org with Gearset, I like to use OAuth as that provides the best security.

    Whenever there is an error during the linking process, such as when:

    1. The app is blocked (OAUTHAPPBLOCKED)
    2. I press Deny on the OAuth consent screen
    3. The org has IP restrictions in place that prevents Gearset from completing the OAuth flow

    Gearset returns to the Manage Orgs or Configure page without showing me what went wrong!

  18. Filtering by user across the app

    Filter deployment history & automated jobs to only show a specific team member's activity (e.g. mine). With large teams, the history pages can get too busy and makes it difficult to find the results I'm interested in.

  19. Manage Orgs Re-authorization returns you to a default sorted list.

    I refreshed a sandbox. I need to re-auth my orgs. I go to Manage Orgs, and sort by my friendly name. I click re-auth, and OAuth is successful and the app tells me I did a good job. But the page it returns me to is using a different sort then I left the page with. ie, it sorts the list by username again. Just extra button clicking I'd like to get rid of if possible. I have to re-auth orgs all the time.

  20. Scroll to top of category, when switch between All Items, Changed Items etc

    Just a user preference item – when you switch tabs (ex: New Objects to Deleted Objects), it doesn’t place you at the top of the window.

    So if I scroll down through all the New Objects and then switch tabs to the Deleted Objects, it just places me in the same relative location as I was in the New Objects tab.

    It would be nice to have it reset to the top of each window when I switch tabs.
