  2. Add additional controls to Monitor

    Hello Gearset,
    We are exploring using the "Monitoring" functionality to audit our Salesforce production metadata changes for our IT Controls. It looked promising until we found out that anyone on the team can edit any monitor job setting, which creates a loophole in the controls that we can't monitor the monitor.
    So I'm curious to learn from Gearset whether any of the following can be done/requested:
    * Can we limit the Monitor jobs to only be editable by the person who created it?
    * Can we show either an audit history or LastModifedBy/LastModifiedTime of the Monitor job?
    * If the…

  3. Update Metadata Change Monitor Report

    When you update the change monitor report metadata filters and include new metadata types, the next monitor report shows all the newly added metadata as "New Items" on the report. Although not a big deal it did cause an alarm for us not realizing it was due to the change we made prior. It would be a "nice to have" feature if either you don't include the newly added metadata types as "New Items" on the initial report or flag them and have a visible cue to indicate the items were a result of newly added metadata items on the…

  4. Archive or hide Automation jobs

    On each of the Automation dashboard views (Monitoring, Unit testing, Continuous integration) it would be nice to have a way to archive or hide job. Often times previously setup jobs that are not active but would be good to keep for historical reference can clutter the dashboard.

  5. Add capability to export components as part of the full deployment history export

    It would be good if we were able to export the individual components that were part of a deployment when we export, say, the full deployment history from the past 6 months, or all time.
    This would help with IT audits.

  6. Launch into our Connected Organizations from various screens in Gearset tooling.

    Since we have orgs setup in the Monitoring Dashboard or simply in the list of Organizations under My Connections can we get a button that can open that org in a different browser tab ... it would be a super usefuil feature for those of us monitoring many many orgs. its like SFDX ORG : OPEN -u alias name .,..... but having that ability in the GS Tools in relevant areas ... (Monitoring, or My Connections come to mind first.) We have a mixture of DEV, Production and other scratch orgs both internal and External Clients ..... its not always…

  7. Lessen Permissions Needed To Run Monitor

    When running Monitor, a user needs to have "Modify All Data" or "Modify Metadata Through Metadata API" permissions, and "Author Apex" is further needed if we want to monitor Apex classes. I understand why an user would need these when comparing for a deployment, but for a more "read-only" use case like running Monitor, is it possible to lessen the permissions needed?

    Context: we're looking into using Gearset for auditing purposes, and the Monitor feature looks to fit our needs; that said, if in order to monitor production changes requires the user to have full deployment permissions (and author apex),…

  8. Sort Deployment Details by New, Changed, Deleted

    Currently, it seems that the list of Deployment Details provided in Successful Deployment reports is sorted alphabetically by metadata type.

    It would be easier to understand the impact of the deployment if the list was sorted first by category (Changed, New, Deleted, No Difference) and then secondly by metadata type within each category.

  9. Allow searching Monitoring of a system by a specific record of metadata to see all the dates that the record changed

    If I need to find when a specific thing was changed in our system, my only option is either to use the last edited date or to manually check every daily comparison from Monitoring to see if it changed. Since many metadata types do not reliably update the last edited date, it makes it much harder to find those changes. If I could choose a specific metadata record and use that to search the Monitoring to see when it changed, it would be much easier to find it.

  10. Send different deployment notifications based on the target org type

    Successful deployment notification is for all sandboxes. It would be nice if we can have a separate notification for production and sandboxes as certain people only care what goes to production. Thank you!

  11. Detailed monitor reports to inbox

    Opening the Monitor reports in Gearset is very time consuming. I would like a daily report to arrive in my inbox with the Changed, New or Deleted object names, Data Changed and Who.

  12. Allow custom endpoints for webhooks from Unit Testing and Monitoring Jobs

    You can post to Slack, Teams, and Chatter when an org monitoring job runs. But, as a consultancy, we'd like to post to our own SF org in a more general way. We have records for each of our customers, and it would be good to be able to report on summary data about the Gearset's monitoring for those customers.

    If there were a configurable endpoint we could target that at a custom REST endpoint on our Salesforce and then join things up.

  13. Link Static Analysis results to the code

    Could we link the file names in the static analysis results to the actual code from the comparison/monitoring job?

    i.e. Where the results have a list of issues per Apex class, I'd like the class name to be a link to the code for that class

    Having a quick peek at the code from within Gearset can help me to diagnose whether it's a genuine problem, or something where the static analysis rules need tweaking.

    If it's just the rules that need tweaking, it would be nice to be able to complete that job entirely within Gearset.

  14. Add a Description field in the General Settings for Automation like Continuous Integration.

    We LOVE Gearset. I just took over when an employee on my team moved to a different team. I was looking over the existing Monitoring jobs and had to ask why some of them were setup. They were similar with the exception of when they run, for example. It would be helpful to have a Description field in the General settings section so when someone creates these jobs, they can give a brief description of their intent and purpose. Thanks.

  15. Export Object level and OWD (sharing settings) in permissions reports (in addition to the field-level)

    Currently, the permission reporting feature only provides field-level permissions export to CSV for all Profiles and Permission Sets. This is a very small part of the overall security and sharing permissions model. Here are a couple of items that I recommend adding to the permission reporting as a starting point:

    1. Object-level permissions (read/create/edit/delete/view all/modify all) for Profiles and Permission Sets
    2. Sharing Settings (organization wide defaults) for all objects

    In the future, it would be nice to have additional permissions from Profiles and Permission Sets available to export such as:
    1. App assignments
    2. Tab visibility
    3. Apex classes
    4. Visualforce…

  16. Yearly report of all previously migrated items.

    It would be great to get an end of year report or report of how many migrations were completed and a high-level list of components.

    Example:
    Custom metadata, lightning components, page layouts, fields, apex, etc.

  17. Distinguish between process builder and flow

    If you do deployments of flows and processes from process builder, both of them are handeled as a flow. If you need to activate the flow or process manually in a production org, you need to guess if it was a flow that you have deployed or a process.
    Please within the deployment report (and the comparism), distinguish between flows and processes.

  18. Provide more detail in Monitoring notifications

    Right now, the Monitoring job notifications (Slack especially) provide very little detail as to what actually changed.

    Ideally, I'd be able to see right in the message (or in a threaded reply), the first X number of metadata changes made. If there are more than that, then providing a direct link to the detail page in Gearset would be great.

    As of now, it simply just says "there were changes", with no detail or way to easily see the changes in Gearset...which is not terribly useful.

  19. More custom monitoring delays

    It would be brilliant to be able to choose the days of a week your monitor script runs on so I don't have to deploy changes every single morning and could instead do once a week

  20. Filter deployment and comparison reporting by user in the account page
