  1. Basic Authentication with Jira

    As our local hosted Jira instance doesn't allow unnamed connections it would be great to have a basic (username + password) authentication for Jira as well as Bitbucket.

  2. Show In-Progress Validation jobs when clicking 'Details' in GitHub PR

    When viewing a GitHub PR and you have a status check that's in progress, clicking 'Details' should take you to the validation only job page and show all validations (including those in progress).

    Currently this page only shows you completed validations which makes it confusing to use at first and you have to navigate to 'Continuous Integration' and find the validation job there.

  3. Repository Rebasing

    Allows the Git repository to be rebased from the latest and greatest metadata from a target organization. In just few clicks the gearset will download all the latest metadata from a target org and will check in it inside master branch

  4. Add Validate pull requests for custom git

    We have self-Manged Gitlab as a git provider.
    It would be good to have the possibility to allow to run validations on pull requests for custom git repositories or

    support on-prem GitLab (submitted as https://gearset.uservoice.com/forums/283474-help-us-improve-gearset/suggestions/39728857-add-validate-pull-requests-for-on-prem-gitlab)

  5. Enable tracking / comparison of code not in the force-app/main/default folder

    SFDX officially supports tracking of source within the same package in more than one folder. The "standard" folder may be used, but you are also able to create a folder hierarchy that's more akin to a "modularization"

    It can for example look like this:

    force-app (any names goes here)
    -> main
    --> default
    ----> aura / classes / pages
    -> module1
    --> aura/classes/pages
    -> module
    2
    --> aura/classes/pages

    Currently, only the metadata inside the force-app/main/default folder is seen. It would amazing if git integration could take other folders into account too. Both for Deployments from and to Git (for…

  6. Option to choose CI validation run behavior with Open Pull Requests and Branch updates

    Currently, if you have a CI job set up to validate based on events (push, pull request) on a specific branch the following occurs:

    You open a pull request against the specific branch noted in the job - CI validation runs
    You push a commit to the source branch of the same open PR - CI validation runs
    You push a commit to the target branch of the same open PR - no validation runs

    In the conversation with Dan on 8/13/2020, I was told this is by design on Gearset's end (to ignore that situation) to avoid long queued…

  8. Include the static code analysis report in the deployment notes so it can be integrated with Azure DevOps

    We would like to have a link in the Pull Request or Azure DevOps work item to the static code analysis report so the tech leads can review the report.

  9. Enable Dependency Cleaner only jobs on Git repos

    Similar to Unit Test jobs for connected Salesforce orgs, it would be great to have independent Dependency Cleaner jobs for our source repos to help identify problems separate from any particular commit.

    In our flow, not every commit goes through Gearset, so it's possible that our repo could become "undeployable" as a result of these non-Gearset commits. If this occurs, it then comes confusing on the next Gearset commit since the Dependency Cleaner will add all the deletions it deems required which don't relate at all to the PR being reviewed.

    A the end of the day, we'd like our…

  11. no difference report

    Currently the deployment report that is attached to the Jira ticket includes all "No Difference" components which I don't believe provides any real value. In my instance, this includes endless amount of pages, from what I can tell the changed values I'm actually looking for don't actually exist. I would suggest either excluding from report all together or providing a summarized statement that is just a grouped item for all items that were included in deployment but had no change. Also the report should bring the actual changed items to the top of the report like it is on the…

  12. Github: Ability to select Reviewers for pull requests created in Gearset

    Currently, you can create a PR after a successful deployment in Gearset. You're able to provide a description and even select it as a draft.

    However, the only potentially necessary field that's missing is "reviewers". This means any CI/CD setup you have that requires an approval requires the user to go into Github just to add the reviewer.

    Since Gearset would have all the team members (and those with linked github accounts), it seems it might be an opportunity to select based on that list and pass the linked username on to github in the PR creation to keep end…

  13. Filter branches by tag name

    In order to remove the clutter when selecting a branch to deploy to or from, allow users to apply metadata filters that dictate which branches show up in Gearset. For example, being able to specify that I only want to see feature branches.

  15. Support multiple SFDX projects for a custom GIT repo

    When comparing / deploying using a custom git repository, containing multiple SFDX projects, present the user with the ability to select which SFDX project to compare / deploy, either by package.xml or sfdx-project.json. Currently Gearset fails and reports multiple sfdx-project.json were found.

    [
    {
    "UserReadableError": "This repository has 2 sfdx-project.json files: Gearset cannot determine which one to use",
    "ErrorType": "ErrorFromSource"
    }

  17. Provide integration with WebexTeams

  18. Allow merging functionality when two branches are compared

    right now, when compare/deploying two branches, Gearset only fetches the new changes and creates a whole new separate commit to be pushed to the targeted branch. This causes the targeted branch to lose track of all previous commits from the source branch and when compared in git, it thinks that the targeted branch is still behind. It would be very useful, especially for admins, to be able to use merge compatibility if and only there is no conflict between the two branches.

  19. Add the option to note successfully deployed components in CI notifications

    When a CI job is configured to post to slack, and a job fails, it is very useful to see the message posted with information about what failed (error message, number of components that failed).

    However, when a CI job succeeds, it only shows the counts of changed/new/deleted objects.

    It would be very useful to have the option to list out what was deployed - this would make it easier for devs/qa users who monitor these slack notifications to understand which deployments are relevant to them at a glance.

  20. Allow reauthorization of git/Bitbucket tokens used by CI jobs

    Currently, if the OAuth tokens used for a Bitbucket integration are refreshed, any existing CI job will not adopt the newly authorized token. In fact, there is no way to even edit the job to use the new credentials; the job must be completely deleted and created anew.

    However, in the case of Salesforce OAuth tokens, Gearset already has a Reauthorize button, along with facilities for re-associating the new credentials with saved orgs and saved CI jobs. Please enable similar reauthorization mecahnics and credential saving for other Oauth integrations, especially Bitbucket Server, so that CI jobs will not need to…
