  1. Option to set and make use of 'deployment rules'

    It would be great if we can have the option to set and make use of 'deployment rules':

    1 - receive an alert/warning message (in gearset/via email) right before deploying to a selected target environment, for instance - a production environment if certain pre-defined metadata types are included in the deployment.

    use cases: a reminder to run all test when deleting metadata, a reminder to activate a flow on target environment after deployment.

    2 - block a deployment in the following case scenarions:

    a - if the deployment of certain pre-defined metadata types happens within a pre-defined timeframe.

    use case:…

  2. Automate creation of a release, which includes several stories

    Within pipelines, provide the ability to validate multiple Pull Requests (PRs) in one shot (i.e. release), so that this release could be deployed to production, for example, using Salesforce's Quick Deploy feature. This would be very handy when getting ready for a production release and I need to validate my release the day before. Thus, on the day of the release, I would simply Quick Deploy it.

  3. Approve Pull Requests from Gearset

    Currently you have to navigate from Gearset to Github using the link from the Pull Request to approve a Pull Request. While functional, this requires going to an external system for an important Git functionality. This also creates a bit more complexity for non-technical users. If we could approve PRs directly from Gearset, that would be awesome!

  4. Partial environment variable replacement and wildcards

    Some types of metadata, such as Platform Event Subscriber Configuration, have attributes identifying a user by username. As such, regardless of the value in the source environment, the value deployed to the target org must match the username pattern of that org.

    For example, if the value in the source repo is <user>name@example.com</user>, when deployed to a sandbox, it must be <user>name@example.com.sandbox1</user>. From sandbox to sandbox: <user>name@example.com.sandbox1</user> must become <user>name@example.com.sandbox2</user>. And finally, when going from sandbox to production: <user>name@example.com.sandbox1</user> to <user>name@example.com</user>.

    This could be solved by supporting environment…

  5. Allow Quick Deploy when merging multiple PRs using Pipelines

    currently when merging multiple prs using pipelines the merged package validates and then the prs are merged, the resulting deployment then revalidates even though quick deploy is an option, can we use quick deploy when available like was enabled in the ci jobs?

    this would save time by avoiding double validation and make the feature more usefull.

  6. Copy reviewers to the cloned promotion branch PR in Pipelines (Bitbucket)

    When Pipelines creates a promotion branch and copies a PR that was opened in Bitbucket, it does not copy the reviewers. This means reviewers have no way in the Bitbucket UI to filter for PRs that they're assigned to review.

    Further, since all the cloned PRs are authored by the Pipeline owner, the lack of reviewers on top of that makes it quite difficult to visually differentiate between the list of open PRs, especially if you're both someone who creates & reviews PRs.

  7. Pipeline automatic back promote

    When using pipelines, it would be helpful to have the option to automatically back promote changes through the pipeline. For example, we currently have a CI job that pushes specific changes that admins are allowed to make directly in production into our master branch. We then have a Github Action that automatically merges commits to our master branch to the other branches in the pipeline, so that everything is synced. However, in order to turn on pipeline, we have to turn off our automated merge action, because pipeline creates a bunch of PRs when the automation runs. This forces someone…

  8. Customize CI job commit message

    When a CI job pushes changes to source control, it always uses the message "CI deployment from job <CI job name>". It would be very helpful to be able to customize this message.

  9. to let us configure the default metadata filter by deployment pipeline configuration

    Can we please have a possibility to configure the "standard" metadata filter by each deployment pipeline project?

    I think it is currently preselected by the last used metadata filter from the standard comparison.

    As we usually have a specific metadata filter configured by deployment pipeline project, it would be great that we can configure each project with a default one..

    Thank you!

  10. allow field level granularity in CI Jobs

    Would like the possibly to set up a CI job that only syncs a sub-set of fields on a custom object. For example, we have an org to org sync where we want to update picklist fields but not autonumber fields. Currently we are running this job manually twice a day.

  11. Possibility to validate a feature branch as a whole without having to select the Metadata type

    It looks like the current validation jobs setup in Gearset needs the Metadata Type to be explicitly selected to perform the validation. This should ideally be optional and there should be a capability to just validate everything that is there in the feature branch against the target org. It's really annoying for us that we have to select the Metadata Types to be validated.

  12. On Create Pull Request, auto populate details with commit messages

    Similar to the way Bitbucket and GitHub work, it would be nice if the PR description was autopopulated from the commit messages (1 per line)

  13. Include Deployment Name on Continuous integration dashboard

    On the Continuous integration dashboard, specifically in the Validation only CI jobs section, there is no way to associate a validation job with the deployment dashboard in Salesforce. We have a validation only job set up to run tests on PRs when they're created. If we get a handful of them all at once, there is a long list of validation jobs running, but we can't tell which one is the one that's actively running. There is no link between the job in gearset and the job in salesforce.

  14. Clone Problem Analyzer Templates

    With CI jobs, you may need to refine over time your Problem Analyzer templates

    However, there is no clone button and you have to carefully set up the new template (as edit-in-place is not supported when the template is already assigned to a CI job - at least that is what the in-app guidance tells you)

    So --

    a) Allow Clone from page app.gearset.com/problem-analyzer-templates
    b) Allow an easy way to assign the new template to all CI jobs without having to do each 1 x 1

  15. Revert with one click all changes from this PR

    Please allow reverting PR from lower environments. In mine example, we had a feature that went through develop and uat and was waiting in the pipeline to be added to release but the business changed its mind and canceled this whole feature.

    Please add an option that with one click we can revert PR and changes from lower environments.

  16. Schedule deployment option for validation only CI jobs

    It could be good that time selection schedule option is available, makes release timetable easier to execute to target org.

    Currently user can only execute the pre validated package immediately.

  17. Transfer ownership of an Org Monitoring job

    Transfer ownership of an Org Monitoring job:

    We are a consulting firm and a project team often changes during the life of a project. Right now if we have an org monitoring job tied to a project and the owner of that job is moved off the project we need to create a new job and perform a manual comparison.

    It would be great if instead of all these manual step we could just change the owner of an Org Monitoring job.

  18. Sort Validation Only CI Jobs

    In the CI Job page, you can sort the top-level jobs by different columns (Job Name, Source, Target, etc...) but you can't sort the actual instances of that job.

    We can get up to 30 PRs that are all being validated, and it would be nice to be able to sort them in some controllable way. It seems to rearrange them in whatever way it feels.

  19. Be Able to deploy Portal Sharing Settings and Organisation Wider Default Sharing Settings at the same time

    For example if attempting to deploy
    OWD permission Read -> Private, and Portal Sharing Set None -> Read. Gearset will fail validation due to SF complaining that Portal Sharing Settings cannot grant Read permission, since OWD is already giving that access.
    Though what SF sees is that Portal Sharing Set is trying to give Read when it already has that access.

    Therefore, if I want to make the deployment then I would have to do in 2 steps.

  20. See when a commit validation was deployed or not (For CI validation Jobs)

    When you go to the validation only CI jobs section within the Continues Integration part we usually have a CI job targeting a prod environment, you can see all validations succeeded and the commit attached to such validation, each CI job run contains 3 options:
    View comparison
    View Summary
    Deploy

    Then if the validation passed and the code indeed was merged from the feature branch to the master branch (Which would have triggered the actual CI job run), how would you be able to identify wether a merged pull request was deployed or not within gearset?

    For me it's very…
