  1. Support user record migration from production to sandbox or scratch orgs

    New users are often created in the production org that need to be monitored and brought back to sandboxes as well. It would be great if the data deployment tool could support moving user records from prod to sandboxes or scratch orgs.

  2. Allow complex filters and child relationships on filters for data loading

    Allow complex filters and child relationships on filters for data loading. For example, filter the Account to only load if the Owner is an Active user in the system.

  3. Ability to search Deployment History for specific metadata

    On the "Deployment History" tab, the filter dialog filters on the visible friendly name and items like that. What I would like to do is enter a specific metadata name and have the list filter down to deployments where that specific metadata name was a part of the deployment. This would be useful when getting the question, "when was xyz last deployed?"

    If we implemented this and it was only able to search metadata from that point in time onwards, would that be useful or would it be confusing to communicate in the UI?

  4. Improve PermissionSet comparisons by providing an option to ignore fieldPermissions when their editable/readable are set to false

    Current Metadata Behavior:
    When a new object is added, objectPermissions are only added to a PermissionSet only if one of allowCreate, allowDelete, allowEdit, modifyAllRecords, viewAllRecords are set to true
    When a new field is added, the new fieldPermission is added to all PermissionSets by default (with editable and readable set to false).

    NB. PermissionSets are additive in behavior and can only open up access not revoke. Values of false have no meaning and are only noise.

    Current Gearset Comparison Behavior:
    Comparing PermissionSets show these new fieldPermssions as New Items even when default values for editable, readable are set to false.…

  6. Display which apex triggers have low code coverage if a deployment fails

    It would be great if Gearset can surface which Apex trigger has 0% code coverage when a deployment fails.

  7. Cancel deployment in progress

    In Salesforce, you can cancel a deployment in progress: Maybe because a test has failed already and you don't want to bother running the rest, or because you forgot some things.

    Can we have a cancel button while a deployment is in progress in Gearset? The metadata api seems to support it:

  8. "Changed on" date on source control side of comparison does not show

    We have no way of knowing when the files were last changed on the source control side. Tried only with BitBucket though.

  9. Introduce Import/Export feature for Custom Filters

    Expose the underlying JSON/XML for Custom Filters so that we can export it, modify it in a text editor either by hand or with python scripts, then load it back into the custom filter.

    For example I have my main CI filter with 50ish metadata types, and every other filter is a subset which I establish by cloning the "master" filter and deselecting metadata types. Whenever I make a change to the master filter I am forced to nuke all the the "detail" filters and recreate them off the master using the above approach.

    So many clicks. My preference would…

  10. Compare Active Version of flows not the newest Flow

    When comparing flows please compare the active version of flows, not the newest version. This would align with how change sets handle flow.
    Example:
    Version 2 and 3 exist in source. Version 2 is active and version 3 is draft. I want to deploy Version 2 that is active not the inactive flow.

  11. Expose Salesforce Validation Errors within Github PR

    Currently when a PR Validation fails (Deploy CI Job with Validate Target setting turned on), the user can click the Gearset "Details" link to go into Gearset to see the exact error.

    Many of our devs use VS Code and Github for their daily work and only rely on Gearset for the CI job. Having them jump into Gearset just to see the error is time consuming and not very intuitive for them. Sure we can find the same errors within the target org of the CI, but at that point the list of validations is large and it's hard…

  12. Global Search feature

    It would be very useful to have a Global Search feature within Gearset. This would be used to search the contents of all metadata objects.

    My use case is that sometimes a string has been hardcoded inside a function. The only way to find the function that contains the string is to manually trace through the code. The global search would indicate the function that contains this string.

    Another benefit would be to track dependencies for metadata objects that don't support dependency tracking. For example Aura Components, we could search for the component name.

  13. Display Deployment Status Progress

    In the past in Gearset, you were able to see the status of your deployment (e.g. 100/200 test classes, etc.) very similar to how you would see the native status tracker on the Deployment Status page within Salesforce Setup. It appears this feature is no longer available in Gearset and there is no status until the deployment complete. It would be great to bring this back to Gearset, so the tool provides the full deployment scope. Since this has been removed, I now have to open an additional page to monitor progress in Salesforce.

  14. More granular permission settings for sub groups of a large team

    Giving team owners/leaders the ability to define sub groups of team members and control their ability to deploy to certain environments.
    For example not being able to connect to/make deployments to 'production' orgs.

  15. Allow searching Monitoring of a system by a specific record of metadata to see all the dates that the record changed

    If I need to find when a specific thing was changed in our system, my only option is either to use the last edited date or to manually check every daily comparison from Monitoring to see if it changed. Since many metadata types do not reliably update the last edited date, it makes it much harder to find those changes. If I could choose a specific metadata record and use that to search the Monitoring to see when it changed, it would be much easier to find it.

  16. swapping source and target after compare

    I was doing compare between our 2 orgs (Source: UAT, Target: DEVSTG) and I realized that I got the order wrong. Should be (Source: DEVSTG, Target: UAT). But the compare has already completed.

    I wish there is a way to just flip (swap) the source and target without re-comparing as it takes some time comparing between orgs.

  17. Email notification selection: none, success, failed deployemnts

    In account settings allow me to choose what kind of notifications I want to receive to my email.
    [ ] Send me success deployments notifications
    [ ] Send me failed deployments notification

    No selection means do not send any notifications.

    Why? With many deployments my email is bombarded with notifications. Last two weeks 65 emails which I do not read as I see status on screen. Therefore I want to turn off those notifications.

  18. Add Upload CSV functionality to create an upload template for CPQ deployments

    For CPQ Deployments add an "Upload from CSV" feature where a user could upload a file with specific External IDs across multiple objects to tell Gearset what to migrate in a single click.

    For example, the user could list the Object API name in Column A of the sheet and the External ID in column B and then Gearset would parse this and create a Data Deployment based off of those records specifically. This would be incredibly useful for any CPQ deployment where you need to only deploy specific records not the entire object!

  19. Ignore Unlocked Package Metadata In Comparisons

    Currently, metadata from Unlocked Packages show up when comparing against an org. This leads to duplication of metadata in source control repositories (correct DX package repository and incorrect monolithic, "happy-soup" repository).

    Using the Package2Member Object (Tooling API), it is possible to deduce whether or not a metadata item is part of an unlocked package. Therefore, it should be possible to ignore some or all unlocked packages (or any Package2 package), in a similar fashion to the way Gearset filters allow inclusion or exclusion of managed packages.

  20. Offer to push components that passed validation even if some items failed

    For large payloads (thousands of artifacts) it can be tedious to try to resolve a few minor issues when 99% of the package will deploy successfully. Having a feature to push stuff that passes validation would be helpful. Included in this in the deployment summary and deployment reports will be a count and list of items that failed validation and were omitted from the package so they can be investigated
