  1. Here's the best solution: Be able to quickly select the custom objects and standard object custom fields AND only the related metadata items

    Would like to be able to quickly select the custom objects and standard object custom fields AND only the related metadata items to make then function correctly (permissions, layouts, field level security, etc..)

    Then we could go back and migrate all the process automation stuff - workflow rules, flows, trigger, etc..

    It always starts with the data schema first. We need a quick way to see what is different between two orgs and get that synced first

    • Display org authorisation errors

      When I link my Salesforce org with Gearset, I like to use OAuth as that provides the best security.

      Whenever there is an error during the linking process, such as when:

      1. The app is blocked (OAUTH_APP_BLOCKED)
      2. I press Deny on the OAuth consent screen
      3. The org has IP restrictions in place that prevents Gearset from completing the OAuth flow

      Gearset returns to the Manage Orgs or Configure page without showing me what went wrong!

      • Filtering by user across the app

        Filter deployment history & automated jobs to only show a specific team member's activity (e.g. mine). With large teams, the history pages can get too busy and makes it difficult to find the results I'm interested in.

        • Modify the email address for manual deployment notifications

          Being able to modify the default email address for deployment notifications, as for automated jobs, would help keep the others in my team notified of any manual deployments we run.

          • Manage Orgs Re-authorization returns you to a default sorted list.

            I refreshed a sandbox. I need to re-auth my orgs. I go to Manage Orgs, and sort by my friendly name. I click re-auth, and OAuth is successful and the app tells me I did a good job. But the page it returns me to is using a different sort then I left the page with. ie, it sorts the list by username again. Just extra button clicking I'd like to get rid of if possible. I have to re-auth orgs all the time.

            • Allow me to exclude metadata.

              I have certain metadata which is broken or dangerous to migrate from a dev org, I'd like to exclude it from this and subsequent releases. If I could 'right click' and ignore it that would be good.

                  Thanks for the suggestion. We can definitely look into this.

                  Would you expect to create these pairs from the compare screen, or the manage orgs screen?

                  Thanks,
                  Jason.

                • Dependency Engine enhancement for Sharing Rules

                  Dependencies with sharing rules. Roles/Groups/Fields referenced in sharing rules may be helpful to add as "dependent" on as if they are not in the destination org you cannot deploy.

                  • Unselect all standard profiles & related permission

                    Often you want to deploy Admin profile and (x) custom profiles. Compare and deploy picks up hundreds of entries for standard profiles which are surplus to requirements. A single click way would be veryuseful.

                    • Differentiate XML and Code differences in the comparison

                      I would find it very useful if the comparison result highlighted if the difference was in the XML or the Code (or both) for each item. This would especially save time when there are a lot of differences.

                        Thanks for the suggestion Celio.

                        We think this should be possible to do and are doing some background work into how to manage and display this. More details to come soon.

                        Thanks,

                      • Scroll to top of category, when switch between All Items, Changed Items etc

                        Just a user preference item – when you switch tabs (ex: New Objects to Deleted Objects), it doesn’t place you at the top of the window.

                        So if I scroll down through all the New Objects and then switch tabs to the Deleted Objects, it just places me in the same relative location as I was in the New Objects tab.

                        It would be nice to have it reset to the top of each window when I switch tabs.

                        • Specified Test Level Suggestion

                          Hello,

                          It would be very nice to be able to have a test classes suggestion when doing a deployment with "specified test level". The suggestion will ensure the package elements will be covered at least by 75% and so speed up the deployment.

                            It would be great to be able to select multiple items in a comparison using crtl or shift click, rather than checking the boxes one by one

                                  • allow multiple slack webhooks per scheduled monitor or test run.

                                    I have multiple slack teams, I'd like the ability to hook up a monitor org, or a test run to send to multiple slack webhook urls.

                                    Not super important, and I suppose I could get around it by scheduling a duplicate, but that just felt wasteful of everyone's API's. :)

                                      • Provide option to disable parallel apex testing in Scheduled Tests

                                        Scheduled Test runs can fail due to UNABLE_TO_LOCK_ROW errors. This is due to what amounts to a bug in SF: accessing public custom settings in tests which are run in parallel can cause deadlocks. Really, the tests ought to be isolated from each other, but they are not. See:

                                        https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.apexcode.meta/apexcode/apex_testing_best_practices.htm

                                        The workaround in SF is to disable parallel apex testing.

                                        If Gearset could do that during the scheduled test run, it would prevent false test failures.

                                        I guess I could change the option on the SF org, but sometimes parallel testing is useful, so I wouldn't want to disable it…

                                        • Add ability to exclude specific files/folders of repo from a compare with source control

                                          Currently, if you try to compare a repository to a Salesforce org, it will throw an error with only the ability to send a report to Gearset if the repository contains files that are not compatible (gulp files, package.json, etc. at the root of the repo or any folder that isn't corresponding to a Salesforce type of file).

                                          My suggestion would be to add the ability for the user to exclude those files or folders from the compare and retry when it fails. This issue currently prevents us to use source control in the comparisons.
