  1. Allow disabling of "Caching metadata for faster analysis"

    Often this stage of the process seems to take much longer (upwards of an hour) than retreiving and analysing did in the first place.

    It's unclear where this is even being cached, i've been told its in my own browser but this cant be true for a CI job with no browser available.

  2. Gearset Unit Test Monitoring ignores test methods in classes at V27 or earlier

    For older orgs, one may have Apex classes at V27 or earlier. Such classes were allowed to also include testmethods.

    Gearset's Monitoring job ignores these test methods leading to a false sense of security that one's org is "correct"

    Example class is at V24

    class Foo {
    void doStuff() {}
    static void testmethod myTest() {
    new Foo().doStuff();
    System.assert(...);
    }

    The myTest will not be run by Gearset Unit Test Monitoring. It will be run by Setup > Apex Test Execution > Foo > Run tests

  3. Monitoring dashboard page hangs on loading

    Often, if not always, when I first load up the monitoring dashboard it hangs on the loading wheel until I refresh. Doesn't appear to be a problem on any other page.

  4. Update Deployment Functionality for Education Cloud Standard Picklist

    Currently, Education Cloud standard picklist field values are able to be deployed to production. However, the deployment lacks the ability to define active or inactive picklist values. The workaround is to manually activate and deactivate these values after deployment.

    This functionality was recently changed on 8/17/2023 for the Academic Session Season and Academic Session Type fields. Requesting the change to be made for all of these fields.

  5. Fix CI PR Search Bar

    The Search Bar in the CICD Pipelines appears to be using a custom matching logic that is awkward at best and outright misleading at worst. I start searching for a PBI with a term like '1093' and get 1 result, In then add an additional 3 to it ('10933') and am presented with 3 results, none of which have the term '10933' anywhere in them.

    The algorithm appears to chunk parts of the search value and then 'fuzzy match' using each 'chunk' of string. So by adding a 3 to 1093, I was all of the sudden searching for all…

  6. Recognize code formatting changes as differences that can be deployed

    If an Apex Class or other code file has been modified to fix formatting only, changing the indentation size for example, Gearset doesn't recognize this as a change that can be deployed. Formatting changes are recognized by git and SFs own source tracking feature so it should be recognized by Gearset.

  7. Add RecordType support for PersonAccount

    Problem analyzer is always trying to remove my picklist values from any RecordTypes on PersonAccount. I am forced to use a custom "Problem analyzer template" where "Remove picklists from record type" is disabled.

    Suppose I have a field called pickme: Account.Pickme--pc | Contact.Pickme--c it shows up in the record type XML as Pickme--c, and it seems like gearset tries to find a picklist on account with that exact API name, which will of course fail. My ask is that rather than raising an error at this point, GS should repeat this check on the contact object where it would find…

  8. 'Continuous integration' menu item links (redirects) to Deployment Pipelines

    When I click on 'Continuous integration' in the left menu it goes (redirects) to Deployment Pipelines (https://app.gearset.com/deployment-pipelines?pipelineId=xxx) by default since a week or so! 👎

    I just want that menu item to keep on going to the 'Continuous integration dashboard' (https://app.gearset.com/continuous-integration).
    What's in the name (of the menu item)! 😉

  9. Prevent deployed validated packages from being deployed subsequent times

    Currently, after you deploy a validated package it no longer appears under the Validated Packages menu, however, if you still have the link for the validated package and navigate to that package it doesn't give you any indication that the package has already been deployed and allows the user to click the Deploy button again, assuming they have deploy permissions on the target org connection.

    As part of our production deployment approval process, we store the link to the validated package in our external ticketing system (https://app.gearset.com/validated-package-details?deployPackageId=<package id here>). When completing the ticket, users use that link to…

  10. Search on comparison doesn't search though object child items

    When searching on the comparison results screen the child items of an object are not part the search unless you expand the object.

    If you expand and then collapse the object tree child items do then appear in the filter search. It appears to be just on initial loading that it doesn't work.

  12. Deploying from SF to Repo with unlocked packages can result in items deploying incorrectly

    When deploying from SF to a branch that has the force-app and unlocked packages, if you deploy an item that would include the object file it deploys to the unlocked package directory instead of the default app listed in the project.json. The end result is everything related to the object is moved from the force-app to the unlocked package directory.

    Steps to recreate:
    Enable source tracked sandboxes
    Create a new dev sandbox
    Create a new branch and link it to the new sandbox
    Create a new field on Contact
    Edit a search layout on Contact
    Use gearset to deploy the…

  13. create a Default Value setting on Source Control & Connections

    Reading the previous suggestions this might be a bug.

    Where a user has multiple connections to Github, Bitbucket etc. It would be good to be able to set a default connection.

    It is suggested that when you go to Compare, the last selection should be displayed. But I am not seeing that happening?

    I would expect the default Source to display, no matter what Compare I and setting.

  14. Scratch orgs with packages with InstallationKeys fails to install in CI

    When creating a new scratch org you have the option of specifying the package and the installation key. This option is not available in a CI job to scratch org target scenario.

    When there are dependencies specified in the sfdx-project.json file that requires an installation key the CI job run fails when the CI tries to install them.

    There needs to be a way to specify the installation key, either by a custom JSON field in the sfdx-project.json, or on the CI job itself.

  15. Problem Analyzers don't evaluate changes made from other Problem Analzyers

    Even though this example has an easy workaround, it does seem like a scenario which could present issues in other deployments.

    In the scenario where a standard application that doesn't exist in the target (ex. Sandboxes and LightningInstrumentation) is included in a deployment (along with its permissions), there's 2 problem analyzers that come into play

    1. "Remove standard application additions/deletions from deployment"

    2. "Remove items which reference the listed components which are not available in the target"

    When both metadata types are selected (application and permission) only #1 is flagged. This means Gearset removes the standardApplication, but leaves the references to the…

  16. Don't change the first 2 rows of a metadata file in version control

    Usually a Metadata file retrieved from Salesforce starts like this:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <PermissionSet xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">

    So two lines, first with the version and encoding UTF-8 and second with the type of metadata.

    Now when GearSet does the deployment to version control, either from an Org or a Branch it uses this styling of the first row:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><PermissionSet xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">

    So everything on one line, with the encoding in lower case.

    I don't see a logical reason this should be different in the files and is then causing differences in the version control system.
    Thanks for looking into this.

  17. Allow standard linux path in sfdx-project.json

    if path contains "./force-app" a bug appears, if we write "force-app" it works. so first one should work to

    Repro step :

    {
    "packageDirectories": [{
    "path": "./force-app",
    "default": true
    }],
    "namespace": "",
    "sfdcLoginUrl": "https://test.salesforce.com",
    "sourceApiVersion": "48.0"
    }

    Result :
    Comparision failed

  19. Keep list of specified tests

    When choosing specified tests to do a validation, let's say from a comparison that was created from a bunch of drafts that were combined, the pop-up will show the specified tests that were chosen originally for those drafts that were combined. That is awesome and is exactly what I want.

    The problem is the "Fetching test classes from Salesforce" then occurs automatically and replaces that list with the full list of test classes, and check the boxes for all of them, replacing my existing list. That means I have to go back and choose my list of specified tests again.

  20. For Deleted components, "Changed On" date should be date component was Deleted

    After doing a major changes in an org, one can be left with a lot of deleted components to deploy. In the comparison view, they don't show up as expected. The Changed On" date isn't the date deleted. It uses the last modified date in the destination. So deleted something last week could up as last modified 2 years ago.
    Ideal: Gearset would to get the Setup Audit Trail via API and display the actual deleted date of deleted components
