  1. Be able to log into scratch org from Deployment Success page

    It would be super convenient to log into the scratch org directly from the Deployment success page


    • From Compare & Deploy sequence

    • From CI success

  2. Enable tracking / comparison of code not in the force-app/main/default folder

    SFDX officially supports tracking of source within the same package in more than one folder. The "standard" folder may be used, but you are also able to create a folder hierarchy that's more akin to a "modularization"

    It can for example look like this:

    force-app (any names goes here)
    -> main
    --> default
    ----> aura / classes / pages
    -> module1
    --> aura/classes/pages
    -> module
    2
    --> aura/classes/pages

    Currently, only the metadata inside the force-app/main/default folder is seen. It would amazing if git integration could take other folders into account too. Both for Deployments from and to Git (for…

  3. More granular permission settings for sub groups of a large team

    Giving team owners/leaders the ability to define sub groups of team members and control their ability to deploy to certain environments.
    For example not being able to connect to/make deployments to 'production' orgs.

  4. Load Balancer for CI validation

    would be nice to have possibility to configure 1 source (git branch), but multiple targets (sandbox), so gearset would have some "load balancer", which would distribute the validations into sandboxes, which are not busy. Its taking too much time from developers to wait for their validations to finish.

  5. Remove botUser from Einstein Bot metadata

    The metadata for EInstein Bots includes a tag called "botUser" that contains the username of the user you've specified to run the bot as. Because it contains a username, the deployment fails unless you have the exact same username in both environments.

    My current workaround is to deactivate the bot, remove the running user (which removes the botUser tag), deploy, then reset the changes that I made.

    Can we get a problem analyser that will detect and remove this botUser tag so that the deployment will complete?

  6. Add filters & search to the Salesforce orgs page

    Add Filter/Search to the Salesforce Orgs page. On Deployment History you have a filter that is very handy when sorting through the list to find a specific deployment. I am currently trying to add multiple new dev Orgs for a client and it is hard to sort through them all. Can you add the Filter/Search option on the Orgs page?

  7. Add Validate pull requests for custom git

    We have self-Manged Gitlab as a git provider.
    It would be good to have the possibility to allow to run validations on pull requests for custom git repositories or

    support on-prem GitLab (submitted as https://gearset.uservoice.com/forums/283474-help-us-improve-gearset/suggestions/39728857-add-validate-pull-requests-for-on-prem-gitlab)

  8. To make it possible to abort started CI job on Continuous integration dashboard.

    At the moment, you need to wait until the comparison is finished and the deployment has been started and then you should go to the org to cancel running deployment. It would be useful to have an option to abort the CI job.

  9. Jira Integration: Include the option to add a comment in JIRA with the URL of the pull request created from Gearset + Assign reviewers

    After a deployment to a git branch, gearset allows to create the pull request from Gearset. It would be nice to:
    1. Have an option to add the pull request URL to the deployment notes
    2. Have the capability of add reviewers (users from the git repo) into the Pull Request

  10. Export subset of data in data backup

    I would like to be able to filter what I want to export from a data backup, since I probably won't need everything from the database. This would make the downloading more manageable.

    Ex: Export only ContactID and Email fields from Contact object from a specific backup.

    (Restore data seems to allow this, but in this specific case I needed to run some checks in Excel since I couldn't just update everything with the old data)

  11. User Last loggged in and User Usage

    It would be great to see when a team member last logged in on the user account management page. It would also be great to see like a report or extension on the user page where we can see user usage information. Like number of compares, deployments, etc.. may when last compare was done.

  12. API to provision users, assign users to connected organisations

    API to provision users, assign users to connected organisations

    It would be hugely benificial to us (60+ connected organisations, 25 employees working in teams for multiple clients at a time) if we could programatically provision/deprovision users and provide access to connected organisations via an api.

    At the moment this is error prone manual work that has to be done by someone with high level access (and as such is usually already short on time).

  13. Global Search feature

    It would be very useful to have a Global Search feature within Gearset. This would be used to search the contents of all metadata objects.

    My use case is that sometimes a string has been hardcoded inside a function. The only way to find the function that contains the string is to manually trace through the code. The global search would indicate the function that contains this string.

    Another benefit would be to track dependencies for metadata objects that don't support dependency tracking. For example Aura Components, we could search for the component name.

  15. Support JWT authorization to DevHubs

    If Gearset could authorize the DevHub using a JWT (requires DevHub to have a Connected App and Gearset to be given the clientId + server.key + username) ...

    Then:
    * Scratch orgs created by Gearset could be accessible to any other machine provided that machine is using the sfdx force:auth:jwt:grant command (same clientId, server.key, test.salesforce.com, and username of scratchOrg)
    * This is a prerequisite to any outgoing webhook that wants to auth against the CI scratch org
    * This is a convenience feature to IDE users who want to auth against a Gearset-created scratch org without having to get a…

  16. Migration/Deployment Path

    In cases where you have multiple environments, provide an option to define a migration/deployment path; ability to define what environment is the source and what is the target. This will be useful in cases where we have requirement to deploy changes to say production from a specific environment (UAT).

  17. Workflow failed to deploy without error, due to standard object dependency

    CI job : Validation shown as success & Deployment shown as success.. but actually no WF deployed. Saying Opportunity object doesn't exist in target just because it was not selected in the components. in a traditional deployments object is not needed to deploy WF, that too standard object. I feel it is a gap.

  18. Explicitly set object-level permissions, even if these are omitted from XML provided by Salesforce API

    Valerio recommended that I post this suggestion following a discussion on 29 August 2019.

    Issue reference:
    https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/3226459-a-note-on-deploying-custom-object-permissions-on-new-profiles

    Issue:
    1. Remove all object-level access for "Lead" from a custom profile in a source org
    2. Deploy this profile to a target org
    3. The profile in the target org will have access to the "Lead" object ENABLED, because this access is included in the Standard User profile (see document link above)

    The workaround (deploying and then deploying again) is cumbersome and not always practical, e.g. if making automated, one-step deployments outside of Gearset. Failing to make a second deployment means that…

  19. Add Static Analysis Notifications

    For org monitoring, we can get a notification on either every run, or when the org changes.

    Could we also have the option to get notification when the number of static analysis problems increases?

  20. Link Static Analysis results to the code

    Could we link the file names in the static analysis results to the actual code from the comparison/monitoring job?

    i.e. Where the results have a list of issues per Apex class, I'd like the class name to be a link to the code for that class

    Having a quick peek at the code from within Gearset can help me to diagnose whether it's a genuine problem, or something where the static analysis rules need tweaking.

    If it's just the rules that need tweaking, it would be nice to be able to complete that job entirely within Gearset.
