  1. Options to pick only selected custom labels metadata for salesforce.

    Since the custom labels metadata can’t be picked individually, the Gearset compare and validate process would pull in all custom label changes. This would be a concern if we want to withhold any particular custom labels from being pushed to higher environment.

  2. Spurious difference CustomObject excludedstandardbuttons ordering

    SFDC has a tendency from release-to-release of reordering the excludedStandardButtons for a CustomObject. If you are using source control populated under Vx and SFDC changes the ordering in Vx+1, your custom objects all show up as Changed in the differences viewer.

    Because these are "excluded" buttons, their ordering in the XML file doesn;t matter to the end deployment and the variance should be suppressed in the difference viewer.

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

  5. 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!

  6. 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…

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  19. 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…
