  1. A configuration to prevent deployment from certain Sandbox Org into Production org

    In most of Tech industry deployment lifecycle, all code or config changes are ideally pushed into production only from a FullCopy Sandbox(Commonly Known as Staging Environment).

    It would be very good to have a feature in GearSet App which if enabled shouldn't allow user deploying data from Dev/DevPro/Partial Sandbox into Production Org.

  3. configure which problem analyzer results to use in CI jobs

    Being able to configure which problem analyser results to use in CI jobs.

    For instance, we can’t deploy any changes to managed packages because the problem analyser will ignore them (even though we have components from a managed package that we can modify and deploy without issues), that would help to reduce our manual steps during deployments.

  4. Create Change set without comparison

    Allow user to directly create a change set without doing the comparison. If user has a list of items that needs to be migrated then allow the user to add items and skip comparison step.

  5. 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!

  6. Allow destructive changes from Local File

    Allow for the upload of a local file which includes the destructiveChangePost.xml, destructiveChange.xml, and destructiveChangePre.xml files to do destructive changes.

  7. Allow date range filtering on the "Changed On" column

    Currently one has to pick dates individually, if one has 30 + dates to select, this can be massively simplified if one could select a date range.

  8. How about a default BitBucket repository on the popup page that appears when you clone a package (under “Deployment History”)?

  9. enumerate unsupported metadata in Manage Custom Filters

    In Manage Custom Filters dialog, Gearset should link to

    a) https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_meta.meta/api_meta/meta_unsupported_types.htm
    b) a Gearset list of Metadata API-supported but not yet GS-supported metadata types

    saves devops person wondering why certain metadata can't be deployed

  10. Remove Failing Items from deployment set

    Remove Failing Items from deployment set: When a deployment fails with X errors I'd like the option to auto-remove those items from my deployment set. I may come back to them later, but I may also just want to see if I can do an intermediary deployment with the succeeding items. This is very relevant in org merge projects where there can be hundred of things to deploy across the spectrum of metadata.

  11. There should be an option to schedule unit test jobs weekly in Gearset

    Hi Gearset,
    I would suggest you to provide an extra option where we can select weekly ,daily or monthly schedule jobs in Unit Testing Jobs.

    Thank you,

  12. Metdata Optimization / CleanUp Analysis

    A very good feature for metadata management tool like gearset will be an helper which allow to identify metadata not used or not properly configured.
    For example this concurent have this feature : https://www.metazoa.com/snapshot-use-cases-org-cleanup-and-optimization/

  13. Inline Editing of metadata

    Inline Editing of metadata
    In order to make our deployment successful we had to download the package, modify the version numbers on the flow definitions, and then compare the local package to the target org. It would be very helpful if we can edit the metadata XML in the UI so we can fix the version numbers.

  14. Allow the use of cached metadata during comparisons

    Over the past 2 days we ran multiple comparisons between salesforce orgs. Nothing was changed in the target org but some fixes were applied to the source org in order to make the deployment successful. A lot of time would be saved if we had the option to compare the source org to a cached copy of the target org. In this case, the source org was finishing very fast, especially when we used the local file comparison.

  15. Save source/target pairings for quicker selection

    Allow us to save source/target pairings to make comparing/deploying less error-prone. Since I currently have access to multiple sandboxes and multiple git branches, it would be nice to be able to save/access my most used pairings for quick selection, instead of having to scroll through each picklist.

  16. Provide the ability to run static code analysis on all commits to the repo

    We'd like the ability to run static code analysis on all commits to a repo, regardless of the branch name. This would allow us to catch code quality issues early and up front, regardless of the branching model we use.

    Example: https://www.atlassian.com/git/tutorials/comparing-workflows/gitflow-workflow (development is done in feature-* branches, so there's no one branch we can configure a CI job on)

  17. Gearset to do Sanbox Refresh by copying metadata and data from production

    Quite often an Environment needs to be refreshed, but every time it happens all the integration breaks as OrgId changes. Gearset can move metadata and data, which when made together can be a solution for sandbox refresh. Full copy sandbox sometimes takes days, GS will be able to it quite quickly.

  18. Create an rss or atom feed as you add new features

    When working inside of Gearset, it often alerts you to changes that have been recently made. It would be nice to have these as a separate, consumable, feed. We have a slack channel that we would like to pipe those changes to, for instance.

  19. Add possibility to save custom filter RegEx for subcomponents

    If you want to deploy new fields and field level security, I want to create a custom filter that hides all profile setting except of field level security and make that custom filter reusable.
    Unfortunately RegEx only works on top level elements. In this case profile names. That doesn't make sense since that would hide field level security too.

  20. Selectively filter managed package metadata without excluding unpackaged components

    Add the ability to filter in/out managed package elements from a comparison set at metadata type level. e.g. allow for the comparison of managed package objects and fields but exclude other managed package metadata types whilst allowing those types to be available for non-packaged constituents. More specifically for instance, exclude manage package page layouts and include managed package custom fields whilst including both unpackaged page layouts and custom fields in the comparison set.

    The reason for this is to minimise the comparison set which can reach limits due to size whilst including all mandatory metadata elements for a deploy.
