  1. resize column widths on "deployment history" page (no truncated values)

    On the deployment history page, the column widths are fixed. If you have a value in the "friendly name" column that's over a certain character count, it gets truncated automatically. there is a tool tip to see the full value by hovering, but if you use consistent naming standards for naming deployment packages, this can result in having to hover over many package (i.e. rows) to find the one you want.

    if making the column width customizable isn't possible, then making the "friendly name" column character limit longer would be a good start!

  2. Repo cleaner for managed package deletions

    When you delete a managed package from VCS by deleting its <InstalledPackage>, Gearset should look for all traces of that managed package in VCS and delete those files/update the metadata

    The <InstalledPackage> file identifies the namespace - eg. SomePkg, and Gearset should be able to remove files that start SomePkg__ as well as delete/edit metadatablocks within other files that reference SomePkg__c.

    It is extremely tedious to remove managed package metadata from VCS otherwise; especially if the customer opted to put a lot of managed package metadata in VCS (perhaps by accident)

  3. Allow users to share deployment drafts across different Gearset environment

    Lets say multiple vendors are working on different environments and done the deployment across all the lower environments using their own Gearset. But coming to the production org. internal team will be performing the deployments using internal Gearset. So Instead of recreating the deployment draft again, it would be very useful internal team can reuse the draft created by vendor in different Gearset environment.

  4. 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)

  5. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. Show data hosting option chosen for an account

    It would be great to see the chosen data hosting option for an account in the 'My Account' area. Without it security audits will not be able to verify what setting was chosen and will have to rely on documentation held elsewhere.

  9. Limit Connections creation

    Currently there is no feature to prevent users in creating their own connections within Gearset.

    We need users to follow the permission that was setup on the shared connection. We have only 2 users that have the approval to deploy code from a sandbox to production. As they can set up their own connections then this bypasses our restriction

    Having a permission only available to the Enterprise user or a user approved to create connections and delegate access would prevent the bypass of access permissions

  10. Support for WaveRecipe metadata is missing

  11. 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.

  13. 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…

  15. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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).
