  1. Add a validation/warning for when users try to filter only permission set for comparing and deploying

    we believe that if we are given the option to filter only permission sets for the comparison, there should be some type of validation ensuring that you are also including dependencies such as custom objects, apex classes etc so that we don't make the assumption that filtering permission sets only in the comparison will include all dependencies

  2. Create a VSTS Build Task for Gearset

    VSTS offers the ability to create build definitions to validate/deploy your code, but Gearset customers don't have much options natively in VSTS to trigger a Gearset deployment. We can scan a code repository for changes every 4 hours in order to do a CI deployment-- but that's about it.

    VSTS offers the ability for vendors to create "Build Tasks" for their applications, where you can initiate a VSTS build and get results. This is basically a controlled version of API access to the tool.

    More information:
    VSTS Marketplace - https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/vsts
    VSTS "Add a Build Task" - https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/docs/integrate/extensions/develop/add-build-task

    It would be…

  4. Test job triggered by CI job

    Test jobs are only configured on time basis. When developer commit some changes and it will be deployed, but tests will be done on a time basis in 2 hours for example, so he should wait to know weather tests are passed or not. Or ask the release manager to run tests manually. So, this feature is must have improvement.

  5. Support grouping of Manage Orgs page

    Support the ability to group org credentials on the Manage Orgs page by a new Group Name attribute. In managing multiple clients with dozens of PRD and Sandbox orgs it would be extremely helpful to be able to group and filter related credentials by client. However, to expand this feature to support multiple use cases, providing a new Group Name attribute (text) which could contain any value would be fantastic!

    Thanks for your consideration,
    Mike

  6. Include custom metadata type (__mdt) listviews

    Not sure this is a bug or a limitation in the V40.0 SFDC Metadata API but it would appear that Custom Metadata Type (__mdt) listviews are not included in the Comparison (default 66). List Views on other Sobjects are included. Hence they can't be deployed

  7. Allow a deployment team to update the same draft deployment at the same time or warn the end user of a draft in use by another user

    When a dev team work on a shared deployment, it would be nice to work on the same deployment draft, at the same time. At a bare minimum, it would be good to be warned that someone is updating the draft at the same time as you.

  8. Filter standard vs custom objects

    We sell a managed package and will never include standard objects in a comparison, and absolutely not in source control. When I'm running a compare against source control to check for changes, it will show all of the standard objects as "custom objects" which is not correct. I should have a way to filter out standard objects from the comparison.

  9. Avoid going to Setup | Deployment status on "validate deployment don't run any tests"

    If you are deploying to PROD and
    a) You have Apex classes in your deployment
    b) You choose Validate Deployment - Don't run any tests

    The Validation will fail and Gearset will tell you to check the target org Setup | Deployment Status where as suggested, the most likely cause is test coverage failures.

    This is in fact true but it seems that Gearset could warn you before acting on a PROD deployment with non-test apex classes and 'don't run any tests' that this will be guaranteed to occur and give you a chance to reconsider your choice before wasting…

  10. download the zip package at an earlier stage before analysis has taken place

    Download the zip package at an earlier stage before the analysis has taken place.
    In big Orgs with multiple teams working the analysis page takes sometimes to load so it would be a great addition if we can download the zip package file and modify it.

  11. Field Tracking Analyzer message is misleading

    If source org includes a new custom field with field history tracking enabled TRUE, the deployment analyzer reports the following when deploying to target org:

    'Fields with history tracking enabled cannot be deployed before it is enabled on the object. You should remove these history tracking changes from the deployment'

    Specific use case was object OrderItem


    1. Analyzer can clearly detect if field history is enabled on target org object (which it was) - message is spurious.


    2. Analyzer can arguably detect that target org's limit (20) will be exceeded by the deployment of the selected custom fields (which could add/remove field…

  12. Search for test classes

    It would be nice to be able to search for test classes instead of having to type them out in a comma separated list. Gearset already has such a nice search capability and it would be great if it were applied to that dialog as well.

  13. View email templates that are part of a managed package folder in comparison

    Hey guys,

    I am not sure if this is an actual issue or not but I will ask the question to see if I am missing something :)

    When comparing email templates, the compare will return both email templates and folders. I have noticed that in my case, email templates that are part of a managed folder do not return. We can see the folder and sync the folder settings, but no templates. If we move the templates to a non-managed folder we can see the templates. Has anybody encountered anything similar?

    Thanks!

    Richard

  14. Support customer S3 buckets for storage

    Allowing customers to specify their own S3 buckets for storage could be beneficial for the product. This would give the customer enhanced security and control over their data.

  15. Would like the ability to print the current comparison for selected objects before deploying

    I would like the ability to print the current comparison for selected objects before deploying to use for documentation purposes.

  16. Access to Critical Updates

    We use Gearset as our primary utility for managing various client orgs include Production and Sandboxes for Testing and Release Management. It would be great if there was also a way to access, review and potentially enable/disable any Critical Updates in any org from Gearset.

    However, I do understand that Critical Updates may not currently be accessible from the metadata API.

    Just a thought,
    Mike

  17. Provide a way to deploy push topics

    We have a push topic that we use but there is currently no easy way to deploy changes between orgs. Would it be possible to do this via Gearset?

  18. Page Layout Deletion Not Detected

    When I remove a page layout from my Git repository (the file and the package.xml entry) and then do a comparison to an org that it still exists in, Gearset fails to detect a deletion. It doesn't even show up in the All objects tab. It happened to me yesterday and then I just reproduced it now.

  19. Echo source/target on Resolve Missing Dependencies page

    If you are using Gearset to deploy between multiple orgs/repos, you may find you have launched the analyzer on multiple tabs within the browser (or across browsers). Since this operation takes some minutes, when the page 'Resolve mIssing Dependencies' appears, you get no clue as to the source/target. In today's multi-tasking life of a developer, it is easy to get lost and forget which tab was for which deployment.

    Basically, the principle should be to echo the source/target in the header of all pages/dialogs - especially if the operation to arrive at that page is not 'instant' wherein the user…

  20. Warn if a selected metadata type is not supported by selected API version

    In the custom filters dialog, if you select a metadata type that is not supported by the API version, the compare and deploy currently just silently ignores that item, giving the impression that the compare has failed. e.g. selecting "Duplicate rule" with metadata version prior to 38.0.

    It would be good for Gearset to provide a warning if a selected metadata type is not supported by the selected API version.
