  1. Use exact filters of Automated Job

    Currently automated CI job filters are unique to that job and not available as a filter for manual jobs.
    Ability to use the exact current job filter as a filter outside of the CI job.
    Ability to to clone the CI Job filter into a new named filter.

  2. Explicitly set object-level permissions, even if these are omitted from XML provided by Salesforce API

    Valerio recommended that I post this suggestion following a discussion on 29 August 2019.

    Issue reference:
    https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/3226459-a-note-on-deploying-custom-object-permissions-on-new-profiles

    Issue:
    1. Remove all object-level access for "Lead" from a custom profile in a source org
    2. Deploy this profile to a target org
    3. The profile in the target org will have access to the "Lead" object ENABLED, because this access is included in the Standard User profile (see document link above)

    The workaround (deploying and then deploying again) is cumbersome and not always practical, e.g. if making automated, one-step deployments outside of Gearset. Failing to make a second deployment means that…

  3. Add a tab for Items that the Items I Selected Depend On

    It would be so cool if there could be a tab that shows all the items that my selected items depend on. It would be much easier to review / select them then the way I do it now, which is expanding each item in the Selected Items tab to check for things I need to add.

    Thanks!

  4. Move the configured regex filters to the top of the scrollable pane (currently at bottom) of

    Move the regexes to the top of the pane so one can see they exist and not have to guess that they exist at the bottom of the pane.

    Note the example, selects all custom objects - this is useful for ISVs

    example: For custom object, there are 100+ entries for standard and custom objects. If you add a regex, it appears at the bottom of the scrollable pane, after all the enumerated objectnames. Coming back into a custom filter, it is not obvious that you had even created a regex as you would have to know to scroll to…

  5. Support package.xml filtering when using Git comparison with a SFDX folder structure

    When using a git repo with a SFDX folder structure + package/xml (in the /manifest folder) gearset dos not take into account elements in the package.xml when checking the option (filter with package.xml)

  7. Include the local file name on all the results screens

    When you choose a local file to use as compare, on every subsequent screen the only title you see is: "On-disk repository". It would be helpful to include the name of the file.

  9. Provide ordering for metadata elements when committing to version control

    When metadata is retrieved from Salesforce the order of child nodes is not guaranteed and results in false-positive changes when committing to version control. Usually this will be something simple like workflow actions/criteria appearing out-of-order which can be compared manually. However, recently we've noticed entire profiles being committed with every permissions element out-of-order, resulting in a change set with ~20k lines where the actual change is impossible to visualize.

    Gearset should provide a feature to 'order' child XML elements alphabetically by name in order to provide consistent commits to version control and eliminate false-positives.

  10. Add support for "ServiceCrew" and "ServiceCrewMember"

    These two objects are part of the FSL package for Salesforce. Right now, when we do a compare between two orgs, no results with be shown.

  11. Show related reports as dependencies when deploying a Dashboard

    When choosing to deploy a dashboard, It would be helpful if all of the reports that are used by that dashboard were shown as dependencies with the option to select them as part of the deployment

  12. Optimize "Refresh Comparison" to only pull metadata that has been changed since the last comparison

    Currently, clicking Refresh Comparison does not optimize the comparison in any way, it just allows you to skip selecting some of the configuration steps from running a new comparison.

    This means that it takes the same amount of time actually comparing the orgs.

    It would be nice if on clicking of "refresh comparison" the logic didn't run a full compare and instead just looked at metadata that had been changed since the last compare in order to reduce the comparison time.

  13. Make All Items show all items in the filter

    On the comparison summary the All Items tab does not show items that don't exist in either org.

    It is possible to add an item that does not exist in any org (perhaps by mistyping the name of a class/object/trigger/etc.) but the All Items tab does not show those items. It would be helpful if even items that don't exist in either of the comparison orgs were displayed in the All Items list and flagged as not existing. This will make debugging problems like mistyping names easier to diagnose.

    I wasted an hour of my time and that of two…

  14. Improve CI validations jobs - allow incremental comparisons with Github Pull Request/Push Validations

    Currently, the only way to validate a branch, push, or pull request is to essentially have gearset pull all metadata from the repository and the org.

    This can result in a long wait time for validation. It'd be great if we could have quicker turnaround for users to get feedback after a push/pull request.

    Since github/provider of choice would have the exact metadata that changed in the push/pull request, it'd be helpful to only have gearset pull the metadata that actually changed to limit how much time is spent simply pulling all metadata to make the comparison.

  16. Allow Scheduling of Comparison and Export Results via Email

    Our use case is to schedule the comparison of two sources (Salesforce orgs) which are both "dev" environments, on a daily basis, yet receive the comparison results as an email attachment. The format of the export file within the comparison itself is what we'd need. This would save time & clicks by not having to log into the app and dig into the comparison job to manually extract the csv file.

  18. Separate the Custom Settings <object> Permissions and Metadata Type permissions from the Profile or Permission set

    When promoting Custom Objects and their security, we have to look at Custom Object Permissions (after loading the respective Profiles and Permission Sets in addition to the Custom Objects). We should follow a similar model for Custom Settings and Custom Metadata Types. The reason is that, if they remain part of the Profile or Permission Set, then I have to make sure that the Profile or Permission set exactly matches what I want in the target environment - I can't have any extra Custom Settings or Metadata Types that don't exist in the target environment yet or the promotion will…

  20. Allow users to discard chunks/certain changes before deploying to target

    For example I'm on the diff screen and I see my page layout has 5 changes/chunks of changes, but I only want to commit/deploy the first one - please add functionality so that I can discard/ignore the other 4 changes in the file and only deploy the one change I want.
