  1. Custom ordering option for CI Dashboard

    Rather than splitting jobs into Validate and Deploy and ordering alphabetically, allow custom ordering (drag and drop, or custom grouping) in order to maintain logical job sequences including a mix of deploy and validate jobs.

  2. Checkboxes to delete multiple packages/validations/deployments at a time

    Hi - feature request:
    Checkboxes on the validated packages (and probably others) screen so that I can delete validated packages more quickly. One by one is a big pain, and it probably uses your storage... and it definitely clutters our workspace.
    Thanks!

  3. 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).

  4. Create a persistent default setting for Monitoring Job Notifications

    It would be nice if there was a way to default the notification for monitoring jobs to 'send notification only when changed'. Right now, if you set monitoring, you get an email a day from that job, regardless if there was a change or not. You have to manually change it otherwise.

    Nice to have that setting front and center, available when you select monitoring, as well as have a default value for each org type; Prod, Sand, and Dev.

  5. 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.

    Hello. A large number of commenters requested the ability to carry out value replacements as part of metadata deployments. 

    Gearset now offers a feature called Environment Variables that lets you do just that!

    It works with both manual and CI deployments and lets you target either a Salesforce org or a Git repo of your choice. And, for a number of key metadata types, you can even specify the exact 'field' where the replacement should take place.

    If you have any feedback on the Environment Variables feature, please open a new feature request or simply let us know in the in-app chat. 

    Thank you for upvoting this feature request and we hope that you will find the Environment Variables feature useful.

    Blog post:  https://gearset.com/blog/environment-variables/

    Support doc:  https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/5557015-using-environment-variables-in-gearset  

  6. Combine validated packages

    Hi Team,

    Please add checkbox for validated package as same as deployed ones. that way I can combine package even for validated one's and deploy.

  7. Delegate access to a scratch org

    The ability to delegate access to a scratch org without extending access to the related production environment would be helpful. We have situations where we need developers to build new ideas in a scratch org but do not want to extend the access to the production environment

  9. Create post deployment automations to SF records

    Hi Gearset😍
    Love your deployment product!

    We are using salesforce as a ticketing system - any chance you are planning to make a connection to Salesforce records like you did for Jira or Azure?

    I would love the have the option to do some things automatically after a deployment, for example:
    Attaching the deployment report to the ticket
    Updating Status field
    Update Environment Field (based on target org name)
    Posting a chatter post about the deployment

    Thanks!

  10. Ability to use Sandbox Source Tracking features as opposed to a comparison filter

    The comparison screen is great to help admins and declarative users see the changes they made. However, it still requires them to know which metadata to pull based on changes they made.

    Source tracking in Sandboxes is in beta and would alleviate this concern.

    https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=sfdx_setup_enable_source_tracking_sandboxes.htm&type=5

    If Gearset could leverage this functionality (potentially leveraging SourceMember object or storing .jsons to track last modified times as local projects store) it would make the complete process easy to use for all alike (pull metadata, select diff, deploy).

  11. Mass delete of deployment and validation history

    Would like the ability to delete multiple history items at once. The current process of clicking delete and then clicking the confirmation is cumbersome and time consuming when we have multiple users and multiple environments kicking off many CI validations through the day. Failure to clean up the Validation history, especially, eventually brings Gearset CI viewing to a crawl. Having the ability to delete multiple at once and/or a the ability to add a retention period for history would be ideal. Validation history is the most important because you can't filter by time period like you can when you go…

  12. Clone deployment package from within the CI job history

    We have a feature branch we create a PR 1 to SIT -> we merge the branch -> deploys to SIT -> we delete the branch
    We have a feature branch we create a PR 2 to SIT -> we merge the branch -> deploys to SIT -> we delete the branch
    now both PRs are in SIT branch
    we make a PR from SIT to UAT -> Both PR's are validated against UAT -> if all is good both PR's get deployed to UAT
    but then Monday comes and business wants JUST PR1 to be deployed to production
    so…

  13. Global Search feature

    It would be very useful to have a Global Search feature within Gearset. This would be used to search the contents of all metadata objects.

    My use case is that sometimes a string has been hardcoded inside a function. The only way to find the function that contains the string is to manually trace through the code. The global search would indicate the function that contains this string.

    Another benefit would be to track dependencies for metadata objects that don't support dependency tracking. For example Aura Components, we could search for the component name.

  14. Allow capability of excluding IP ranges from Profiles during migration

    Currently IP ranges defined in, say, a sandbox get carried over to the target environment (another sandbox or Production), when Profiles are migrated.
    In some cases this means, these means these IP ranges may have to be manually removed from the target environment.
    It would be great, if there were an option to exclude these IP ranges from the selected Profiles.

  15. To be able to filter within a dropdown

  16. Bash scripting

    Add support for bash scripting. This is one of the most powerful features of Jenkins and something that would make a huge difference in Gearset.

  17. add the ability to change columns in the compare results page.

    Use Case:
    When deploying items from one Org to another I need to filter by newly created items as well as latest modified items. So there is a use case here to add the Created By and Created On columns in the Compare window.

    Or the ability to add predefined columns into the view.

  19. Enable Gearset login from corporate SSO solution

    an additional layer of security and convenience would be to enable Gearset login (that is, login to Gearset) to be done from an enterprise's SSO solution. We use Duo but Okta and others should be supported.

    Just like we can login to Salesforce from our enterprise's SSO , we should be able to login to related apps in our suite of enterprise tools via SSO
