  1. Custom text within automated emails

    I simply want to be able to add some lines of text to the emails that are triggered.

    In our case this would simply be to let the team know the deployment was complete please proceed with any manual steps for example. In our org this would simply save a step for the release manager to have to trigger an email stating this and be included in the email triggered by gearset.

    This functionality might also play out nicely that we could have some more specific text around the test jobs that we trigger. For example, we have thought to…

  3. Error while deploying dashboard component using Changeset / Gearset / ANT

    This is a common error received during deployments:

    Error: Metric, gauge, or table dashboard component missing indicatorLowColor attribute (line 70, column 33)

    This is a suggestion to Gearset team for there feature Deployment analysis if they would pick this error in advance before deployment.

    Observation: This issue occurs when the Dashboard is created in Lightning. (I cannot confirm though)

    Resolution:

    Downloaded package.xml and component

    Basically, after I pulled the dashboard metadata from source org, I opened it and found the
    <componentType>Table</componentType> tag, and right under it I added this:

    <indicatorHighColor>#00716B</indicatorHighColor>
    <indicatorMiddleColor>#ffb75d</indicatorMiddleColor>
    <indicatorLowColor>#C23934</indicatorLowColor>

    After this change I managed to deploy everything…

  4. Add a validation/warning for when users try to filter only permission set for comparing and deploying

    we believe that if we are given the option to filter only permission sets for the comparison, there should be some type of validation ensuring that you are also including dependencies such as custom objects, apex classes etc so that we don't make the assumption that filtering permission sets only in the comparison will include all dependencies

  5. Test job triggered by CI job

    Test jobs are only configured on time basis. When developer commit some changes and it will be deployed, but tests will be done on a time basis in 2 hours for example, so he should wait to know weather tests are passed or not. Or ask the release manager to run tests manually. So, this feature is must have improvement.

  6. Support grouping of Manage Orgs page

    Support the ability to group org credentials on the Manage Orgs page by a new Group Name attribute. In managing multiple clients with dozens of PRD and Sandbox orgs it would be extremely helpful to be able to group and filter related credentials by client. However, to expand this feature to support multiple use cases, providing a new Group Name attribute (text) which could contain any value would be fantastic!

    Thanks for your consideration,
    Mike

  7. Include custom metadata type (__mdt) listviews

    Not sure this is a bug or a limitation in the V40.0 SFDC Metadata API but it would appear that Custom Metadata Type (__mdt) listviews are not included in the Comparison (default 66). List Views on other Sobjects are included. Hence they can't be deployed

  8. Allow a deployment team to update the same draft deployment at the same time or warn the end user of a draft in use by another user

    When a dev team work on a shared deployment, it would be nice to work on the same deployment draft, at the same time. At a bare minimum, it would be good to be warned that someone is updating the draft at the same time as you.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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

  20. 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
