  1. Compare and Deploy Attachments and Files

    Please add the ability to use the "Compare and Deploy" for Attachments and Files. The ability to migrate PDFs, image files, word docs, and excel spreadsheets would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!

  2. Allow complex filters and child relationships on filters for data loading

    Allow complex filters and child relationships on filters for data loading. For example, filter the Account to only load if the Owner is an Active user in the system.

  3. Allow for the masking of data during a Data Deployment

    During a data deployment it should be possible to mask the data in specific fields. For example, if I were importing Account and Contact data from production into a sandbox I would want to be able to mask email address so that we can't erroneously send actual customers emails while we're testing

  4. Add problem analyzers to the data deployment app

    Much like the problem analyzers for metadata deployments in Gearset, it would be great if you could add a problem analysis feature for data deployments after having configured what you want to deploy.

    Some scenarios will almost certainly cause the data deployment to either totally fail or only partially deploy some of the records and skip records it can't deploy. Providing automatic fixes (e.g. choosing not to include duplicates) would improve the number of deployments that work 100% of the time.

  5. Add Support for Pre/Post Data Deployment Scripts

    Some of my more complex data objects require that I turn off Validation Rules during deployment, then back on again after deployment.

    Options that would work:

    * BEST: List of Validation rules under each object and and option to temporarily disable on a one-by-one basis during the deployment. A "Disable All Validation Rules During Deployment" option would be helpful if this feature is implemented.

    * BETTER: Ability to specify metadata xml to apply to each sobject pre and post deployment.

    * GOOD: Ability to specify anonymous Apex to execute pre and post deployment. This would involve a callout to the…

  6. Schedule data deployments

    The current data deployment functionality works fine for one-off deployments, but if you are trying to keep specific data in sync across multiple orgs, the ability to schedule data deployments for a given time in the future would let you deploy on a recurring basis automatically. Becomes especially helpful when combined with the current data filtering options.

  8. Provide options to delete records from Target Org. This will help clean up of test data and reload from Source.

  9. select all objects option in data deploy

    It would be useful to select all objects in the data deploy screen to make it faster to select a large number of objects (even better would be the ability to group objects and select whole groups at once)

  10. CI Triggering Data Deployment

    When we pull down a version between our local and staging environments. We would like to also automatically pull in the testing data from another project.

    As one of the things we are trying to setup is taking a version from Prod then running GhostInspector through our core flows. Ideally every 4 hours we take a backup from metadata + locked down actual data. Then run tests against it.

  11. Show source Org records count for each object so that we can decide on how much of it can be moved and how much of filter is needed

    Show source Org records count for each object so that we can decide on how much of it can be moved and how much of filter is needed. Moreover after all object are select with filters for movement, please show the total number of records that will be migrated across all selection and its related objects. This will tell us if we are exceeding the limit of 10000 and do we need to split.
