  1. Allow Record type additions and removals to be selectable

    I am not a having an option to deploy the particular picklist values in the Record type level, I would like to include only the values I have added that are different from my target environment.

  2. Send Email when a package is Validated successfully with PDF of Deployment Summary.

    We currently receive an email with deployment summary as PDF attachment after successful deployment, but we also want this feature for successful manual validation. This is help us review the validated package summary with Deployment approval teams in our ORG.

  3. extend the GearSet public API to include Data deployments between Sandboxes and Scratch Orgs

    Allow triggering Data deployments via the public API to eliminate having to sync data manually. This also includes triggering creation of Scratch Orgs via the Gearset API so that Gearset can instantly recognize them them.

    The workflow we would like to automate is: feature branch is checked out which triggers a CI/CD system pipeline to create a corresponding scratch org, do a metadata deployment from a test sandbox, and sync data from the same test sandbox. This allows us to create on-demand full copies of the environment for purposes of E2E testing (inc. external integrations) and feature development that requires…

  5. Jira comment only for production releases

    We would like to have the option to choose which deployments create Jira comments. As business users often watch our Jira tickets, we would prefer only posting comments when we actually "release" (deploy to our production org) and skip comments for releases on sandbox environments.

  6. Approve Pull Requests from Gearset

    Currently you have to navigate from Gearset to Github using the link from the Pull Request to approve a Pull Request. While functional, this requires going to an external system for an important Git functionality. This also creates a bit more complexity for non-technical users. If we could approve PRs directly from Gearset, that would be awesome!

  7. 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.

  8. Pipeline automatic back promote

    When using pipelines, it would be helpful to have the option to automatically back promote changes through the pipeline. For example, we currently have a CI job that pushes specific changes that admins are allowed to make directly in production into our master branch. We then have a Github Action that automatically merges commits to our master branch to the other branches in the pipeline, so that everything is synced. However, in order to turn on pipeline, we have to turn off our automated merge action, because pipeline creates a bunch of PRs when the automation runs. This forces someone…

  9. Customize CI job commit message

    When a CI job pushes changes to source control, it always uses the message "CI deployment from job <CI job name>". It would be very helpful to be able to customize this message.

  10. xml formatting support for Illuminated Cloud

    I would like to see support in the 'XML quote escaping style' for Illuminted Cloud (and potentially other IDE Vendors)
    I am struggling currently as my Admins use gearset for source control commits and my developers use Webstorm and Illuminated Cloud which causes conflicts (generally with the utf/UTF issues but some others as well around validation rules and some formula fields).
    Ideally, If a team standardizes around one IDE then all they have to do is come in to that setting and set it to what the IDE does as a default and then you wouldn't get any conflicts with…

  11. Notify GitHub that checks are running sooner

    When a PR in GitHub is being validated, Gearset doesn't let GitHub know that the check is happening until after it has run the comparison between GitHub and the target org. Then the check is pending while the validation runs in Salesforce.

    This means that there is a delay between when you create a PR and Gearset's check appearing as pending in the PR. At that moment, it looks like there are no more checks to run in GitHub so you can go ahead and merge. But, you really should wait until Gearset has compared and validated the changes.

    It…

  12. Compare Acitve Version of flows not the newest Flow

    When comparing flows please compare the active version of flows, not the newest version. This would align with how change sets handle flow.
    Example:
    Version 2 and 3 exist in source. Version 2 is active and version 3 is draft. I want to deploy Version 2 that is active not the inactive flow.

  13. Create a pop-up warning when on the Selected Items tab before you can deselect all items

    Without the Undo feature, there is the odd time (nightmare situation) where you haven't saved your compare and are on the Selected Items tab and accidentally deselect all items. It would be great to get warned that all work will be lost unless it's saved or the deselect action is canceled.

  14. Make Pipelines a Top-Level Menu Item

    This is a less-good, but arguably easier to implement, version of my request for customizable landing pages. It takes a few clicks to get to pipelines and, since it's the place I live most often inside of Gearset these days, I'd love it if it was a menu option that is parallel to "Continuous Integration" so I could get there in fewer clicks.

  15. Allow Filters to be Customised in Pipelines UI

    Currently, you can create new filters in Compare & Deploy, but when you are comparing and deploying from within the Pipelines UI on your development org, you can only select existing ones. This either means you have to get your team to go into standard Compare & Deploy to set up specific filters first, or they always have to select the filter that includes everything.

  16. Change language to focus less on Source Controls and be more user friendly

    Gearset is great for non-technical users or those that find Source Control daunting. However, the terminology used in Source Control has leaked over to Gearset, and I think this detracts from the useful aspects of it, and at times just makes it feel like an extension of Source Control.
    e.g. "Create Pull Request" in the Pipeline UI should be labelled something more friendly like "Request Feature Deployment"

  17. Hide the "Create Pull Request" button on Deployment Success Screen

    Currently, we are setting our team up to use Pipelines, which has the benefit of guiding users down the pipeline in the right way (they can't create a pull request from a qa branch straight to main without going to uat for example). However, when they perform a commit from an org to a feature branch, the Deployment Success (commit success) screen has a button that allows them to create a Pull Request directly to any branch that they want. There should be an option to hide this from users, especially given the benefit of only being able to move…

  18. to let us configure the default metadata filter by deployment pipeline configuration

    Can we please have a possibility to configure the "standard" metadata filter by each deployment pipeline project?

    I think it is currently preselected by the last used metadata filter from the standard comparison.

    As we usually have a specific metadata filter configured by deployment pipeline project, it would be great that we can configure each project with a default one..

    Thank you!

  19. allow field level granularity in CI Jobs

    Would like the possibly to set up a CI job that only syncs a sub-set of fields on a custom object. For example, we have an org to org sync where we want to update picklist fields but not autonumber fields. Currently we are running this job manually twice a day.

  20. Enable admin visibility into a Gearset team member's shared orgs

    As a Salesforce implementation partner (SI) I have a lot of organizations to manage, well over 50. Each time a new org is added, I can go through and add all the users to that org, but whenever a new person is added to my team, I have to go through each connection and add that user to the list.

    As the owner, I would also like to be able to see all the shared orgs inside my account, so I can centrally manage them, rather than just the ones that team members may have added.
