  1. Create a Data Deployment Template for migrating Territory Management (1.0 & 2.0)

    I would like to see a gearset defined template for Territory Management in Salesforce. I am definitely in need of this functionality as it seems to be a post deployment step once you deployed all Territory Management metadata.

    in ETM 2.0 for example, after deploying the related metadata you need to deploy all related records for UserTerritory2Association Object, this contains who are the users assigned to a territory.

    Not a big template but can be a good thing to have as a preset.

  2. Deactivate email deliverability on Data Deployment

    User email are masked in Sandboxes and we can mask Contact emails as part of the data deployment. This still leaves the Org Wide addresses as valid emails. If there is automation that is generating emails related to the data that is loaded, they will be delivered to the Org Wide Addresses.

    It would be useful if the same script that is deactivating validation rules could set email deliverability to systems emails at the same time.

    In the even that email deliverability was set to all emails in the Sandbox and not adjusted before the data deployment we would have…

  4. Ability to activate / deactivate Flows / Processes as part of the meta data and/or data deployment process

    It should be possible to have gearset to deactivate flows and/or processes based on a selection. And to roll-back afterwards. Similar to what has been created here: https://sfswitch.herokuapp.com/

  5. have functionality to show how big a data deployment is going to be when deploying, as some Salesforce sandboxes have a limit of 1GB

    I suggest you have functionality to show how big a data deployment is going to be when deploying, as some Salesforce sandboxes have a limit of 1GB

  6. Retain Deployment Friendly Name and Notes After Failed Deployment

    When attempting to validate a deployment, and the validation fails, Gearset retains the deployment's friendly name and notes fields from the validation. The user can make any necessary changes to the deployment, and won't have to re-type this information when attempting it a second or third time.

    I'd like to see this same functionality when dealing with a failed deployment that doesn't use validation. Validating a package takes two steps (long steps), and typically I only want to use this option when delaying a deployment. However I often use it anyway just so I can retain my data in these…

  7. Allow 'OR' combination for multiple External ID's in Upsert operation

    Gearset allows the selection of multiple External ID's in an Upsert operation as part of a Data Deployment.

    However, the system implements an 'AND' combination across all the external ID's specified on the object.
    Effectively, ALL external ID's need to be present on the target side for the match to be identified and record upserted. If all external ID's are not present, the system performs an Insert on the target org.

    Please allow an 'OR' combination across multiple External ID's. Arguably, this should be the default option, but at the very least, a user needs the ability to decide how…

  8. Allow serial deployment instead of parallel

    When executing a data deployment, an 'Unable to lock row' error can occur if multiple transactions try to lock the same record in Salesforce.
    Because the batches are executed parallel, the chances of getting this error high, depending on the situation.
    For example the master record in a master:detail relationship will always get locked when a DML is executed on the child record.
    If two batches are executed at the same time and they both have at least 1 record that references the same parent, then a locking error will occur.

  9. Include validation rules and triggers of managed packages in 'Compare and deploy disabled rules'

    When configuring a data deployment there is an option to disable validation rules and triggers on the target org. However the validation rules of objects of a managed package don't get included in this comparison. Triggers of a managed package are also not included.

    I'm not sure if it will be possible to disable the triggers, but for validation rules this should be possible.

  10. Select individual fields in a Data deploy

    Having the option to move up only selected fields in a Data deployment is needed. If we are required to move up all fields in each deployment, there are scenarios where our work will get bottlenecked in a sandbox on the way to production and at that point all the deployments will be identical.

  11. Re-validate a deployment after failure without returning to compare

    Would love the ability to re-validate a deployment after making changes to the target org. I notice this a lot if there's a username issue that needs fixed in the target, I'm able to fix the issue without refreshing the comparison, but still have to return to the compare, go through the automated fixes, and then re-validate the deployment.

  12. Make Data Deployments Invocable (Salesforce APEX)

    As a feature to enhance data deployments, make them invocable by Salesforce APEX (or other tooling) whenever a Sandbox is refreshed. Salesforce has a configuration to let the user specify an APEX trigger/class to run upon Sandbox creation. That could call the data deployments to run on the freshly minted sandbox, seeding it with data. This would enhance automation.

    There are tools out there (like SFApex) that do something similar.

  13. Reuse earlier retrieved metadata, if nothing has changed

    We have a large org and need to select many filters. A comparison take ages. Source of our deployments is mostly Git, which is very fast in retrieving metadata. I would like to have an option, to assume that nothing has changed in target and skip loading metadata of that org and use the metadata of an earlier comparison.
    If we have a small bug in our Git (e.g, test class not correct), we get an error while deployment. That's okay. We fix it in about 1min and want to deploy again. Loading metadata from Git is instant finished loading…

  14. Add the concept of Master seeding object

    One great feature to have, would be the possibility to identify a Master object from which the filters applied on it would be applied on all dependent objects automatically.

  15. Force selection of fields to use instead of selecting id as default

    In the select related objects page, Gearset selects id as the 'fields to use' field. If we are deploying a large set of data and by mistake do not change the 'fields to use' field then we end up creating duplicate records for Upserts. Would be great if there is an option to enable or disable the default selection.

  16. Allow for cross-object mapping with the data deployment add-on

    It would be so powerful to allow users to map data to different objects using the data deployment tool. It would allow us to move data efficiently between orgs that don't have completely aligned object APIs and metadata.

  17. Preview of records for data deployment

    It would be great either via the UI or a downloadable file/CSV, if we could see all the records that will be migrated in the data deployment. We're able to see the list of successful or failed records after the fact, it'd be nice to see the list of proposed records before hand. This would help identify if we're in the correct ballpark, say 500 records vs. 5000, and not knowing that until after the deployment gets attempted.

  19. Use external script/template for masking data

    I would love to be able to use my own script/template when doing just data (not having the compliance option) to select what fields I want to mask and the format for how I want to mask them. I will explain more.

    When doing a data deployment (data seeding) to our developer sandboxes, I would like to be able to use an external script/template for masking data. In my script/template would like to be able to set the format for the masking and how much of the value to mask. For instance maybe I want to mask a phone number…
