  1. Allow data templates to be edited to add or remove components

    Currently when a data deployment template is created, there is no way to edit the template after it is saved so that components can be added or removed. It would be helpful if we could modify the components in the template without having to create the template from scratch again.

  2. When validation fails, allow option to automatically remove metadata from deployment that was causing failure

    It's not convenient when a validation fails, to then download the excel file of the the validation errors, view in separately form Gearset, and then go through the list of metadata I'm trying to deploy and try to uncheck each one that failed the validation. It would be nice if Gearset did that for me.

  3. Add an option to disable deploying the email to case settings in Case.settings

    This will allow to deploy Case.settings without getting this deploy error:
    EmailToCaseRoutingAddress[Info]: emailServicesAddress is a read only field and cannot be changed

  4. Warn the user of unsaved changes to an org compare filter

    It would be nice if we got a warning if we have selected specific components in a filter but havent saved the filter when we hit OK. I've lost a lot of work on a custom filter because I forgot to hit 'Save' - I would have thought it would auto-save when you hit OK.

  5. Allow destructive changes from Local File

    Allow for the upload of a local file which includes the destructiveChangePost.xml, destructiveChange.xml, and destructiveChangePre.xml files to do destructive changes.

  6. Optimize "Refresh Comparison" to only pull metadata that has been changed since the last comparison

    Currently, clicking Refresh Comparison does not optimize the comparison in any way, it just allows you to skip selecting some of the configuration steps from running a new comparison.

    This means that it takes the same amount of time actually comparing the orgs.

    It would be nice if on clicking of "refresh comparison" the logic didn't run a full compare and instead just looked at metadata that had been changed since the last compare in order to reduce the comparison time.

  7. Allow date range filtering on the "Changed On" column

    Currently one has to pick dates individually, if one has 30 + dates to select, this can be massively simplified if one could select a date range.

  8. Suppress irrelevant Suggested Fixes when deploying to git

    The problem analysis comes up with a number of Suggested Fixes which may make sense for improving Salesforce deployments, but which are unproductive when applied to git deployments.

    For example, the suggestion to remove TASK.WHAT_NAME, or to omit Standard Objects, will only serve to create a git repo which is an inaccurate reflection of the source org. Each time we deploy to that git repo, we will continue to have the same changes to select or omit, since the repo is missing objects and fields from the source org.

    When the deployment target is a git repo, all suggested fixes…

  9. How about a default BitBucket repository on the popup page that appears when you clone a package (under “Deployment History”)?

  10. Add Support for Pre/Post Data Deployment Scripts

    Some of my more complex data objects require that I turn off Validation Rules during deployment, then back on again after deployment.

    Options that would work:

    * BEST: List of Validation rules under each object and and option to temporarily disable on a one-by-one basis during the deployment. A "Disable All Validation Rules During Deployment" option would be helpful if this feature is implemented.

    * BETTER: Ability to specify metadata xml to apply to each sobject pre and post deployment.

    * GOOD: Ability to specify anonymous Apex to execute pre and post deployment. This would involve a callout to the…

  12. Ability to tell what metadata filter someone used in a compare/deployment

    For compliance, troubleshooting, and collaboration purposes it would be great to see what metadata filter a user used on their comparison

  13. Filter (regex) on Outbound Message names within Workflows in Metadata Comparison

    Our sandboxes all point to different URLs within the Outbound Message action.

    We want to include workflows in our CI job that backfills production changes into test environments.

    However, we cannot do this as there's no way to exclude outbound messages in the filter.

    In the "Metadata Comparison Filter", you only have the option to add regex or select specific items at the object level within "Workflow".

    If you apply a regex to hit the outbound message name, it doesn't actually hit that outbound message name and only searches within the object name.

    You can only use regex when you're…

  14. Summary pages should always include ALL changed files

    I believe this to be a bug, but it might be intentional. In any case, the current functionality is, in my opinion, poorly conceived.

    If a user adds a deletion to a comparison between an org and git, the deleted metadata is the only item that will show up in Gearset. However, if you inspect the resulting commit in git, you will see that the metadata was deleted along with all of the profiles, layouts, etc that had to be changed as a side effect.

    I'm completely fine with Gearset detecting these dependencies and making the changes to them. It…

  16. Mass delete option for deployment history

    You can select multiple deployment history rows to "combine packages", but it'd be nice to be able to "delete all selected".

    This is useful if you'd like to clean up a cluttered history to only see successes and what actually went in to an org.

  17. Deploy SOAP APIs like Permissionset assignment

    I am able to deploy profile components and permission sets separately. But the permission set assignment is part of salesforce SOAP API and I couldn't deploy the same using GearSet.
    Kindly provide deployment options not only for Metadata API, also SOAP APIs

  18. enumerate unsupported metadata in Manage Custom Filters

    In Manage Custom Filters dialog, Gearset should link to

    a) https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_meta.meta/api_meta/meta_unsupported_types.htm
    b) a Gearset list of Metadata API-supported but not yet GS-supported metadata types

    saves devops person wondering why certain metadata can't be deployed

  19. Remove Failing Items from deployment set

    Remove Failing Items from deployment set: When a deployment fails with X errors I'd like the option to auto-remove those items from my deployment set. I may come back to them later, but I may also just want to see if I can do an intermediary deployment with the succeeding items. This is very relevant in org merge projects where there can be hundred of things to deploy across the spectrum of metadata.

    Hi Gearset,
    I would suggest you to provide an extra option where we can select weekly ,daily or monthly schedule jobs in Unit Testing Jobs.
