  1. Allow for selecting which repositories to display for github in org settings.

    It would be helpful to be able to select repositories to display in the selection under Manage Orgs. Some of our repos in Github aren't related to Salesforce deployments, and filtering those out so they don't even show in the list would be really helpful in getting to selections faster.

  2. Allow comparisons of a single commit from a VCS

    Currently, you can select a VCS repo and branch to use for comparison. It'd be great if you could select a specific commit from that branch, so that you're only looking at an atomic set of changes. This would allow for fine-grained comparison and deployment of changes.

  3. FogBugz integration for Gearset

    We'd LOVE a FogBugz integration for Gearset similar to the new Jira Integration.

  4. Allow teams to share custom git repositories

    It would be nice to be able to share custom git repositories with the entire team. At this time, each team member that does deployments needs to configure each custom git repo in Gearset. Besides requiring them to set it up, it also means I need to give each person the credentials.

  5. Support for zipping and unzipping static resources in GIT repos.

    Add support to automatically unzip zipped static resources when migrating to a GIT repo and re-zipping when migrating to SF. This would allow me to edit my static resource files without having to manually unzip them.

  6. Automatically revert PR in GitHub CI Jobs

    When a CI job fails, the bad code remains in the GitHub repo. I'd like to see a way to revert the commit/PR that caused that failure so that any CI jobs for new, unrelated, commits/PRs won't fail while the developer is working to resolve the issue.

  7. Integrate with Jenkins

    Build a Jenkins Plugin to integrate with Gearset that would allow triggering CI jobs and/or deployments.

  8. AWS CodeCommit ability to view Repos

    Today the ability is not there to allow for viewing multiple repositories within AWS Code Commit. One can view a singular repo and the branches that it contains.

    In our instance we have different repos for our various instances. We would like to be able to have the ability to go on level deeper and be able to first choose the repo, then choose the branch.

    Hit me up with any questions please.

  10. I need TeamCity to kick off a deployment within GearSet when all my auditing constraints are met.

    We currently have a deployment pipeline for our .net and Rails environments that utilize VersionOne, GitHub, TeamCity and Ansible to deploy changes into AWS.
    Due to auditing constraints we would like to use VesrionOne, GitHub and TeamCity to deploy our SF changes.
    Does Gearset interact with these tools or must it stand on it's own?

  11. Chatter posting to

    I think it would be useful if Gearset had the capability to make a chatter post to a specific group or @mention someone.

  12. Add ability to exclude specific files/folders of repo from a compare with source control

    Currently, if you try to compare a repository to a Salesforce org, it will throw an error with only the ability to send a report to Gearset if the repository contains files that are not compatible (gulp files, package.json, etc. at the root of the repo or any folder that isn't corresponding to a Salesforce type of file).

    My suggestion would be to add the ability for the user to exclude those files or folders from the compare and retry when it fails. This issue currently prevents us to use source control in the comparisons.

  13. integrate with Atlassian Stride for notifications

    Gearset's ability to send notifications to Slack is great. I'd like a similar ability to send notifications to Atlassian's Slack alternative - Stride.

  14. Zapier Integration

    An integration with Zapier will allow more customizations options for how we can integrate with other tools, such as Manuscript (fka FogBugz).

  15. Access to Jira custom fields

    we have a custom field we use that ties to a release number. It would be great if as an additional option to selecting tickets, access this field, set the value (in this case our release number) and have gearset pull all related requests in.

  16. When source is local files, Refresh Comparison button should be smarter

    If your source is Local files, and you do a Compare to some target, and then realize the source needs to be amended before re-comparing, your "training" is to clock "Refresh Comparison" button.

    This executes but does not ask you to upload new source files so essentially nothing happens.

    User should be given option to upload new folder/zip.

  17. Create a VSTS Build Task for Gearset

    VSTS offers the ability to create build definitions to validate/deploy your code, but Gearset customers don't have much options natively in VSTS to trigger a Gearset deployment. We can scan a code repository for changes every 4 hours in order to do a CI deployment-- but that's about it.

    VSTS offers the ability for vendors to create "Build Tasks" for their applications, where you can initiate a VSTS build and get results. This is basically a controlled version of API access to the tool.

    More information:
    VSTS Marketplace - https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/vsts
    VSTS "Add a Build Task" - https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/docs/integrate/extensions/develop/add-build-task

    It would be…

  18. Support customer S3 buckets for storage

    Allowing customers to specify their own S3 buckets for storage could be beneficial for the product. This would give the customer enhanced security and control over their data.

  19. Display org authorisation errors

    When I link my Salesforce org with Gearset, I like to use OAuth as that provides the best security.

    Whenever there is an error during the linking process, such as when:

    1. The app is blocked (OAUTHAPPBLOCKED)
    2. I press Deny on the OAuth consent screen
    3. The org has IP restrictions in place that prevents Gearset from completing the OAuth flow

    Gearset returns to the Manage Orgs or Configure page without showing me what went wrong!

  20. enable linking two separate gearset accounts when they are hooked to the org

    I've been using Gearset for a few years. The Salesforce consultant I occasionally work with just started using Gearset with all their clients. So we both have a connection to my Salesforce org. It would be nice to see a combined view of deployments, validations, test runs, etc. made against my org - regardless of which Gearset account it was done from.
