  1. Enable source control as source/target in Data Deployments

    It would be great if we could add source control as an option for Data Deployments, this will be useful in cases where we want to backup copies of CPQ record data which manage configurations to our source control repository.

  2. Ability to filter records on field "ischanged" when doing a data backup comparison.

    Instead of just being able to filter on field values when comparing a data backup. Give the user the ability to filter on a certain field being changed.

  3. API to export backup to S3 for data warehousing/datalake

    A lot of time we would like to have data out of SF not just for backup purposes but for data analytical purposes as well. Ownbackup currently has this functionality via APIs.

    https://documenter.getpostman.com/view/12146739/TzJuAxgY#0f1fc918-7616-4b58-8d52-0e8370f57d9b

    https://ownbackup-kb.magentrixcloud.com/articles/knowledgebase/Using-the-OwnBackup-API-5-6-2020

    If gearset has this, it would help us move to GS for all our SF problesms

  5. Allow retention policies to be set on individual core objects

    It would be useful to be able to set individual retention policies on core objects, rather than on the entire backup job. This is for an old org (c.10 years), ideally you'd be able to set differing retention policies on different objects; e.g accounts after 7 years but contacts after 5 years.

  6. Force a full production backup, and forbid its deletion

    I was not able to buy this tool because to me it was a blocker that we have the right to delete the production backup.
    I may agree that the we don't force for a full backup, but leaving the option to descope tables is equivalent as not backing up.
    Force at least an initial configuration and allow only to add more scope to the backup, but never to reduce it or delete without contacting your support who should get an authorization from more than one person on the client side.

    If I'm an admin at salesforce, and an admin…

  8. Production/Sandbox Backup job color

    The backup job color (or a colored tag) should be introduced so you can clearly see which backup job is for Production and which is for a Sandbox.

    At the moment they all look the same and you have to make sure you are clicking on the correct one, only by looking at the username to understand if it is a Production org or not.

    This is confusing and risky

  9. Store List of Objects Downloaded in Data Download History

    Given that the actual download files for Data Download expire after a short amount of time (which is completely logical), it would be beneficial to be able to know what objects were included in the data downloaded, and potentially any filters used.

    The main reason behind this is from a security stand point, if an employee with access were to go rouge and decide to download sensitive data to sell/take with them, there is no way of telling what kind of data they may have if you were to miss the window of the backup being available.

  10. Ability to Name a Backup Run

    It would be great if you could name a backup run.

    Sometimes when backing up its handy to label in in case it was done for example before a deployment or large data load. Then this can be identified in the future or to refer back to it. Otherwise you need to remember the date and times! :)

  14. Data backup history log export

    I would like to have the option to export a data backup history log for a specific period of time. E.g. for the last 60 days export in CSV or xls format following data:
    Started, Last updated, Status, Duration, Changed, New, Deleted.

    For internal and external audits we are required to provide a list of backup jobs run in specific periods with details.

  15. Mass deletion of data from backup

    We want to know how to automate the deletion in backup system.

    Common use case is deletion of customer data due to legal compliance.

  17. Apply masking of certain data across backups GDPR compliance

    It would be great if records that were marked with certain GDPR attributes, possibly 'GDPR Removal = TRUE' that the backups could apply arbitrary data masking across all historical backups for email and phone number fields

  18. Restore/export certain fields on objects

    We (the user) would like to be able to restore data, but only select certain fields to be restored.

    Usecase:
    A business user triggers some automation that modifies a field or specific fields on a large number of records that should not have been modified. In the meantime, other fields may have been modified that were correctly modified. We would want to restore a set of records from a specific backup, but only the specific fields that should not have been modified.

  19. Provide Salesforce error message for Backup Failed Jobs

    For Data Backup Jobs that fail it would be beneficial for the corresponding email to contain the Salesforce error message that caused the error.

    Or at the very least provide the error in the user interface of the failed Data Backup Job on Gearset site.

  20. Allow bulk export of selected objects in selected historical data backups

    It would be great to export all, or a selected timeframe, of data backups for a job. I understand this would be a large volume of data so selecting by object would be great.

    For example, if there is a data backup for all objects that runs daily, I'd like to select the Account object and select a backup timeframe of 1/1/2020 - 12/31/2020 to export a .zip folder of 365 Account.csv files.
