  1. Add a Select All that works on filtered items when setting up filters

    When setting up the filters, I would like the ability to do a Select All on just the filtered items so that I don't have to manually select each one of them. This would be a huge time saver.

  2. 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.

  3. Ability to select source target for Successful Deployment Notifications

    Currently successful deployment notifications send every success to the specified addresses. Having the ability to specify the source would eliminate the unnecessary notifications to those addresses. We have a use case in which we only wish to send notifications for successful deployments to our production source.

  4. Allow orgs to be grouped in folders

    On the “My Connections” page, I'd love to see an option to add a folder (and sub-folders).

    Currently, there are options for "Developer orgs", "Sandbox orgs", "Production orgs", and "Scratch orgs".

    If you are running more than one entity, having the sandboxes related to a single entity inside of a folder would be more user-friendly than having multiple dev/sandbox orgs inside the same folder.

    For example, if I'm managing deployments for "ABC Company", "XYZ Company", and "LMNOP Company", and each has multiple sandboxes, it would be really convenient to be able to separate out their various sandboxes more effectively, into…

  6. Delta only validation CI jobs

    Idea is to have the Delta CI for Validation only Job, so the as well, so the validation process will become faster .

    The option of validating a PR in the deployment job does the same task, but is comparing too many items of metadata and it is taking too long.

  7. Users should be able to specify test classes and save them to draft deployments

    Users should be able to specific and save test classes in the comparison stage so they can be saved in draft deployments. Seems like a waste of extra steps to unclick tests and select tests over and over as you work through a deploy.

    also when deploys are combined, they would get all the test classes, again, saving lots of time.

  8. add an account based autonumber field to deployment that could be used as a friendly reference

    This could be automatically prefixed to friendly name of the deployment.

    Sth like "000035"

    Could be a simple counter (that I see you have implemented "This is your NNth deployment...").

    If the autonumber would pop up automatically then I would not need to figure out a reference and type it myself.

    Currently, info that potentially could be used: datetime (too long) , url (way too long)

  9. Option to retry Deployment after failure

    Currently, if your deployment fails you have two options:


    1. Click "back to results"

    2. Click "new comparison"

    Going with option 1 means it needs to re-load the comparison and then click next and re-run all the analyzers again which can take a varying amount of time depending on the size of the comparison/deployment.

    In situations where the deployment failed, but the fix is to change something in the org manually - it'd be great to have an option to simply "retry deployment" from the failed deployment screen and skip the various screens and re-loading.

  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

  13. I would like the ability to change filtered metadata to their API names

    I recently had an internal business conversation to clarify what would and wouldn't be included in our new CI/CD process leveraging gearset to push to orgs. When we had this conversation we used the Metadata API names to discuss and then when I went to implement it in Gearset I saw that the filters are actually some translated 'friendly' names.
    This is of course fine for most use cases, but it made it really difficult to make sure nothing is being missed when setting up the CI/CD filter type.

    I would kindly ask that you implement some switch to allow…

  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.

  15. Modify files during deployment process

    In Salesforce, if you add an image to a PathAssistant, it hard codes the sandbox URL in the metadata. This causes failures when you then try to deploy that item to the next environment. My idea is that a feature is added that would allow some sort of find/replace logic that's applied prior to the CI compare. Something like:
    File: Enter the name of the package file
    Search Text: The text and/or regex string to search the file for
    Replacement Text: The text to replace found the text with

    In this way, it would modify the source file prior to…

  16. Add Apex Page Permissions to Repo Dependency Cleaner Functionality

    It seems based on the below doc

    https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/3624846-what-does-gearset-s-repo-dependency-cleaner-do

    That the repo cleaner will remove permission references related to the following deleted items:

    Apex Classes
    Tabs
    Apps
    Object Permissions
    Field Permissions

    Missing from that list is Apex Pages. It'd be great to have that included to clean up references to the deleted page without having to re-run a 2nd comparison for source control.

  17. Validation Job to validate feature/* branch by scratch org creation

    The idea is to validate feature branches in repo. For doing this it's necessary to allow specifying source branch by pattern (like feature/*) in "Add CI validation job" menu. The validation should check whether the code breaks the scratch org creation or not. This is valuable due to fragility of scratch org creation process (sfdx force:source:push).

  18. Ability to return sub-components of a Profile from Source Control

    Currently, profiles in source control are stored with everything as it's all stored in a single file (apex class permissions, layout assignments, etc). This is done by Salesforce.

    When using the new "delta deploy" or any comparison that doesn't include every possible dependent component (ex. apex, layouts, etc) - you see many "new" or "deleted" items related to the fact that source control returns everything within the profile whereas Salesforce only returns specific permissions based on the retrieved components.

    It'd be great if Gearset could replicate this behavior with source control to match Salesforce's behavior, where it'll obviously have to…

  20. Hide irrelevant comparison types/components

    After selecting the source org and viewing the metadata comparison filters, there should be an option to only show those types that contain data (the ones that have a number in parentheses). Or in other words... the ability to hide anything that isn't being used.

    This would make it much faster to create new comparisons (or troubleshoot existing ones).
