  1. Add the open PR feature (Github) to work with BitBucket after a successful commit

    It would be great to add the open PR feature (Github) to work with BitBucket after a successful commit.

    Super helpful for the admin team to close off their feature branches and move onto the next job at hand without having to interact with BitBucket.

      • Provide reporting capabilities for Deployment History

        Our executive sponsor for Gearset has asked me to provide him with some metrics around our Gearset usage. Specifically, we would like to be able to have access to some of the data that already exists in the Deployment History section, but in a format where we could report on it. Ideally, we'd be able to show how many deployments to production, how many components deployed in those packages, frequency of production deployments in a given timeframe, etc.
        This would be a very valuable feature for us so that we can ensure our executive leadership team is briefed on the…

          • Reordering of XML file

            At commit to branch, Gearset reorders large chunks of the XML file. This causes additional deltas (seen in the hundreds of lines) and merge conflicts.

              • Deploy single layoutitems

                In Layouts there are multiple layoutItems. it would be helpful if we could to deploy single <layoutItems> from a Layout without affecting other <layoutItems>.

                  The tab that shows "You're Using a New Version of Gearset" should open in a new tab. Sometimes I click it to see the release notes and end up losing work.

                  • Show history of changes for a component

                    When performing forensic analysis regarding how or why something started working differently, it would be a great timesaver to be able to select a component and then be able to select the data comparisons for just that component. For example, select an apex class and then pick date dates so the system can display what changed. I would expect that this would be quicker than going into Monitoring Histories and picking each date and waiting for it to build the entire comparison of everything that changed and then having to find the component of interest.

                    A follow on to this…

                      • When searching for a custom object name and the '__c' is included, nothing is returned.

                        If the search term ends in '__c', drop that when conducting the search.

                        • Remind repo owner to upgrade metadata on SFDC version change

                          Your blog post https://gearset.com/blog/mdapi-versioning-and-version-control says it all under the paragraph labeled "Upgradingyour repository's metadata"

                          But there's no real reminder to tell the team that this is a meritorious idea. My suggestion is that for the first 30 days after PROD is updated, you could display (in color) some alert (or maybe introduce a messages feature) wherein you tell the team that the repo's package.xml is out of date (version wise) with PROD version and provide pointers on how to upgrade, including nuances like Flows (v44).

                          It is too easy to get lazy and leave the repo metadata out of date…

                          • Be able to sort/filter Validation Failures during Deployments

                            Like how it used to be, when I could see all the Validation Failures on one screen. I'd just Snipping Tool them, head Back to Results and fix them, quick and easy. Now the Failures are scattered within the Successes with no way to filter or sort them.

                              Hi,

                              You can now sort the validation failure columns in the table.

                              Did you know that you can export the results table for either failed validated components or if tests fail to a csv file using the bottom at the bottom of the page? That may also help with being able to do more advanced filtering.

                              Regards,

                              The Gearset Team

                              • Stamp a validated package with the username of the person who clicked 'Validate'

                                Currently, a validated package is created by the owner of the draft deployment package, even if someone else was the one to actually press the 'Validate' button. I would like to have the username of the person who actually pressed validation to be noted somewhere in the validated package for auditing purposes.

                                This would help us be compliant with processes where we need a record of separation of responsibilites bewteen users.

                                • Enable Defaults or Recently Used on Clone Deployment Page

                                  When you clone a deployment package you have to select your Source details, but the selections do not default to the the last used settings or to a recently/commonly used settings. This is a minor annoyance but in other parts of GS you have the last selected options already selected based on user history, so hoping you can extend this to the Clone page

                                    • 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.

                                        • Deployment Notes Persist on Failure

                                          When a deployment fails, deployment notes are sometimes wiped, and it is laborious to retype them - sometimes, I'll copy and paste to Notepad before deploying because I know I'm going to have to type them again. Notes should persist, or at least be configurable, from one comparison run through successful deployment.
