  1. Deleted matching rule not showing as difference when trying to commit

    The deleted matching rule is shown as 'deleted' in the comparison but when trying to commit and moving to the overview screen it is shown as 'no difference' which makes it impossible to commit.

  2. Add an option to ignore package version differences in Apex classes

    I see many differences between apex classes where the only difference is the package version(s), no difference in the code itself. It would be nice to have an option to filter these out so that only the apex classes are shown where the code is different.

  3. re-add "re-authorize" link on compare view

    After refreshing a sandbox, you have to re-authorize the sandbox-org. A while ago, there was a link to do so. Now we have to navigate to the list of orgs to re-authorize there.

    Please give us back the re-authorize shortcut :)

    We have now added a 'Re-authorize' button to the access token expiry warning message that will typically appear when selecting Salesforce orgs with an expired token on the initial 'Compare and deploy' page.

  4. Option to sort Custom Application XML

    While this can be done with VSC custom plugins for SFDX, I think it would be really beneficial if Gearset offered the ability to sort Custom App XML in comparisons in order to see what's actually changing between a source and target for lightning page activations. Due to the way SFDC generates this XML, the way page activations are ordered is very difficult to follow, and I think it's an opportunity to make that easier especially for declarative config users of Salesforce.

  5. Identify that metadata is the same, even if ordered differently by metadata API

    There are a lot of instances where the comparison will identify metadata as different, but the only difference is the way the API is ordering the XML. I've seen it happen a lot with picklist values on multi-select picklist fields. It would be nice to be able to turn this on/off somehow so that metadata that isn't truly different won't show up in the difference compare.

  6. Clone CI job without delta enabled

    As the Gearset administrator for my team I want to be able to clone a CI job that is set as a delta job without the delta flag enabled so that I have less effort to create a brand new CI job.

    Acceptance criteria:

    1. When closing a CI job with the delta flag enabled, give the option for the new job to now have the delta flag enabled.
    2. If the source and target are the same as an existing job, provide a visual warning of the potential consequences of replication of the job.

  7. Show deployment friendly name on Deployment successful page

    On the "Deployment successful" page, I'd like to see the Deployment friendly name displayed. This would be much more useful than the Salesforce Id that is currently displayed.

  8. Support org shape parameter for creating Scratch Orgs

    Currently definition files are required for creating scratch orgs but there is no support in GearSet for the use of the sourceOrg parameter as per the sfdx documentation here : https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.sfdx_dev.meta/sfdx_dev/sfdx_dev_shape_scratch_def.htm

  9. Gearset silently removes SocialPost Layout Permission when deploying

    When deploying from one org to a git repo (or other org) and selecting Layout + Profiles gearset will display a Layout Permission for the "SocialPost" object. However when completing the deployment "SocialPost Layout Permission" is removed because deploying it would cause Salesforce validation errors. This is not displayed anywhere and always causes "SocialPost Layout Permission" to show as "New" when doing a comparison.

    This behaviour was converted to a problem analyzer as of July 23rd 2021.


    You should now be able to include these Layout Permissions in your deployment by ignoring the suggestions from the "Items that can't be deployed through the Salesforce metadata API" analyzer

  10. Desktop notification when deployment is complete

    When you launch a deployment to a target org the browser tab (which will be one of many in your browser) shows Depl...

    Since the user is multi-tasking, it would be helpful to add a desktop notification and change the browser tab to alert user when deployment is done (like what Gearset does when a comparison is completed)

    This could be a D ✅ or D ❌ depending on whether deploy succeeded or failed

  11. Missing analyzer - Search Settings - when custom object not in target

    If you deploy Settings | Search there are entries for <searchSettingsByObject> with sub-element <name>myFoo__c</>

    if the target does not include the custom object myFoo__c, Gearset doesn't flag this as a warning with a default fix to exclude the <searchSettingsByObject>

  12. More granular control over CI job schedules

    Currently, a CI job that deploys from a Salesforce Org to another org or source control can only be scheduled to run at 4 hours intervals. Additionally, there is no mechanism of specifying when these jobs will run - instead, the job is scheduled randomly within the first 4 hours it was created and every 4 hours after that point.

    Providing a smaller interval (ex. every 1hr) and/or more granular control over the job execution time seems like a common sense enhancement.

  13. Allow CI to do a quick deploy

    Allow gearset CI to do a quick deploy either by default or via a setting on the Job definition.
    Our tests run for nearly 90 minutes and are currently run twice in succession causing a lot of frustration. Once when a PR is validated and then when it is merged and deployed.

    This functionality is now enabled automatically for CI jobs with the "validate pull requests targeting the branch" feature. This means Gearset will automatically try to quick deploy the package after the PR is merged meaning that tests don't need to be re-run. There is no need for users to change behavior and CI jobs will run and look as normal

  14. Make fail job optional for warning PMD analyses

    As a developer leader, I don't want the job to fail if I get a warning from PMD. But I want to be notified if the code has any warning.
    I would like the failure for warnings to be optional. But always be warned that it has flaws.

  17. Prevent Deployments from Including LiveChatButton with Omni-Channel Routing

    https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_meta.meta/api_meta/meta_livechatbutton.htm

    LiveChatButton metadata that is routed using OmniChannel is not supported with the Metadata API and the deployment will fail.

    It would be great if Gearset had an analyzer to remove this for end-users to prevent the error.

    The following property is null for LiveChatButtons routed through Omni-Channel

    <routingType xsi:nil="true" />

  18. Search option when selecting a Data template

    When choosing a template in a Data deployment, an option to search all templates is needed. We will be updating/modifying/saving new templates often and a manual scroll will become inconvenient. Control F works to find a template, but a dedicated search option would be preferable
