  2. to give an option to take a backup of Filter's data.

    As an admin, I share my deployment filter with developers to add new item to filter. As many team members are working on the release , there is a possibility of jeopardizing the filter's data. I wanted to take a back up of the filter's items periodically. How can i do this?

  3. Allow Username/Password authentication option when selecting target/source orgs during cloning a deployment package

    Currently, when cloning a deployment package or re-deploying a package to a new target, it only works with OAuth authenticated orgs. It would be nice to have more of my available saved orgs to be a target/source when cloning a deployment. I am not able to authenticate a target or source using a My Domain or Username/Password with this method.

  5. Provide controls around who can create/manage Salesforce Connections

    I have a team of multiple admins that use GearSet and I want to fully control who can deploy where. I can set this up with security today in GearSet by what kind of access I grant. However a user can create their own connection using their credentials and get around the shared connections I have established. I would like the ability to disable a users ability to create new connections which would then only allow them to use pre-existing connections that I have established appropriate security for.

  6. Warning On Missing Custom Metadata Field

    I had a deployment fail today due to a difference between a custom metadata type's definition in the source org vs the destination. The source had two extra fields that the destination did not have. This cause the metadata record deployment to fail, because two extra values were included in the deployment which did not have corresponding fields in the destination. Because the fields were for a custom metadata package, I was unable to (easily) add the fields into the destination org.

    I'd like to see a way to suppress custom metadata values. This may be solvable through the inline…

  10. Separate the Custom Settings <object> Permissions and Metadata Type permissions from the Profile or Permission set

    When promoting Custom Objects and their security, we have to look at Custom Object Permissions (after loading the respective Profiles and Permission Sets in addition to the Custom Objects). We should follow a similar model for Custom Settings and Custom Metadata Types. The reason is that, if they remain part of the Profile or Permission Set, then I have to make sure that the Profile or Permission set exactly matches what I want in the target environment - I can't have any extra Custom Settings or Metadata Types that don't exist in the target environment yet or the promotion will…

  12. Possibility to add automatically added metadata to the comparison after a failed deployment

    The dependency crawler that GearSet offers is one of its biggest strengths. A lot of manual labor can vanish at the click of the button. Best example would be the addition of all relevant Picklist fields when a Record Type is added to the Selected Items.

    Sometimes deployments still fail, and in particularly big orgs the dependency crawl takes ages, each time I have to rerun the problem analysis.

    A way to add the metadata that was auto-added prior to the deployment to the list of Selected Items to make future analysis faster would be greatly appreciated.

  13. Allow editing Orgs created by other users

    If there is a Gearset user who adds a bunch of orgs, and then quits-- and then a password change is needed for those orgs (or even something simple, such as a nickname change-- it is impossible for another Gearset user to edit the previous Org.

    A workaround is possible to remove the previous Org and add a new Org, but this could lead to lost comparison history, something that many businesses (mine included) care a lot about.

    Can access to edit Orgs created by other users be added?

  14. Support Salesforce standard Country/State Picklist Mapping for Data Masking

    Right now, using the data masking feature for data deployments, the values for country and state are real values and random. There's no guarrantee that the country and state will be valid pairings.

    This causes issues for orgs that use the standard Country/State picklists from Salesforce.

    The goal would be that the masking feature would pull from the Saleforce default values and make sure that the state and country are valid pairings as opposed to randomizing both separately

  17. `Deployment history' User Interface update.

    In `Deployment history' it would be great if when you choose a target and it opens in a new window. Deploying 48 packages and it is painful.

  18. Allow merging functionality when two branches are compared

    right now, when compare/deploying two branches, Gearset only fetches the new changes and creates a whole new separate commit to be pushed to the targeted branch. This causes the targeted branch to lose track of all previous commits from the source branch and when compared in git, it thinks that the targeted branch is still behind. It would be very useful, especially for admins, to be able to use merge compatibility if and only there is no conflict between the two branches.

  19. Add a column to indicate if XML matches if order doesn't matter

    See this link: https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/2413367-why-is-xml-order-of-some-metadata-in-the-comparison-results-different

    Sometimes, the XML of an item in sandbox/production can be the same, but not in the same order. This leads to false positives showing up in the list as "changed items".

    I understand that sometimes order matters (eg: in picklists) but maybe there could be an additional column which shows if there are no differences if you ignore order? Maybe even a setting to turn the column on and off so it's not confusing?

  20. Changed by and Changed Date not populating from DX structure in Repository

    Using the DX/source structure in a repository (Github), no "item changed" date is shown for any metadata types in the comparison window.

    This leads to gearset not being able to provide last changed date or who last changed anything in a Source DX repository. It's left with "unknown" and makes our comparisons and selections more difficult when users rely on that information.
