  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. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Allow users to specify when to apply Environment Variables

    A good feature would be to have some setting that lets you declare when you should apply environment variables. Since right now it is applied automatically during manual deployments and CI deployments. Perhaps in the wizard when you configure deployments there should be some option there to declare if environment variables should be applied or not?

    We have some Custom Metadata and Custom Settings that always need to be updated post-refresh based on the new sandbox instances and it would be useful to use environment variables to set these values and deploy them one-time without them being deployed in every…

  11. 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…

  12. Allow the creation of CI Jobs against Salesforce orgs that we are delegated to, instead of needing to be owner.

    We have 2 admins that we want to be able to create all of the CI and Pipeline Jobs, even if they don't have their own credentials in a particular Salesforce org. They have Deployment delegation, and can run compare and deploys, but not set up integration jobs.

    This is then requiring us to either, provision extra licenses in each sandbox for our DevOps administrator, or have the developers create the CI jobs, which they are not comfortable with.

    And, as we start the Pipeline Pilot, we would like to leverage all of the existing CI jobs, but, that is…

  13. 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.

  14. Additional text countries

    I'd like to see a few extra countries added to the text messaging option on scheduled deployments. My team works with resources in different regions.

    Brazil +55
    India +91

  15. Manually Delete Metadata after CI job runs

    We don't want the CI job to delete metadata, so we've unchecked that box. However, when a CI job runs that would have deleted data, we'd like to be able to select from the job history, review what would have been deleted and elect to deploy the deletion manually post CI run. We can re-run the comparision from Compare and Deploy, but having this action tracked within the CI job history would be more convenient, and would allow the history for the target org to be contained in the same thread.

  18. Notification of unresolved CI job failure

    As the owner of the CI job pipeline, I would like notifications when there are ongoing failures to the CI jobs that I select so that I do not have to continually monitor the jobs as a part of my day-to-day.

    Acceptance criteria:

    1. The current-state suite of notifications on CI jobs will still be available.
    2. When a CI job has failed and the failure has not been cleared within X number of hours, the notification will be triggered.
    3. Each CI job should have blocker notifications enabled separately.
    4. Users will be able to select from SMS, email or both.
    5. Users will…

  20. Allow Deployment Notes to be editable post-deployment

    Allow Deployment Notes to be editable post-deployment. Our team uses very specific notes for auditing purposes, and being able to edit them post-deployment would make that process a lot easier for our teams.
