  1. Send a link to the report in the notification

    It'd be nice to have a link to the report included in the notification for any scheduled monitoring, test run or deployment/validation.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    When you run a deployment, the deployment success email contains the PDF of the deployment report, as well as a link to your deployment history to view the full information.

    For the test/change monitoring emails, what sort of report would you like to see? Would you like to see the full information on tests run or just a summary of key stats?

    We don’t currently provide the ability to export PDF reports for our change and test monitoring jobs in the same way as our deployments, but it’s something we’ve been thinking about putting in.

    Thanks,
    Jason.

  2. "Changed on" date on source control side of comparison does not show

    We have no way of knowing when the files were last changed on the source control side. Tried only with BitBucket though.

  3. Provide option to disable parallel apex testing in Scheduled Tests

    Scheduled Test runs can fail due to UNABLETOLOCK_ROW errors. This is due to what amounts to a bug in SF: accessing public custom settings in tests which are run in parallel can cause deadlocks. Really, the tests ought to be isolated from each other, but they are not. See:

    https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.apexcode.meta/apexcode/apextestingbest_practices.htm

    The workaround in SF is to disable parallel apex testing.

    If Gearset could do that during the scheduled test run, it would prevent false test failures.

    I guess I could change the option on the SF org, but sometimes parallel testing is useful, so I wouldn't…

  4. When migrating ReportFolders, either remove running user or let me map users between Sandboxes/environments

    When migrating ReportFolders, either remove running user or let me map users between Sandboxes/environments

    The SharedTo User doesn't exist in the target org causing my deployment to fail.

  5. Add merge functionality to the diff tool

    Extend the diff tool to allow the user to perform a merge, creating a new version of the component that contains some changes from the source version and some changes from the target version. This would be very useful in a team development scenario where multiple devs are working on features in individual dev sandboxes and then pushing completed features into an integration sandbox.

  7. FLS selection for Source control

    while deploying a field to source control. we just want to move profile FLS of that only field. FLS was not displayed on the components drop down of profile. we are only able select profile so that whole object's FLS are getting deployed to the Source Control.

  8. See Continuous Integration Deployments in the Deployment History tab

    List deployments resulting from a CI job on the Deployment History tab along with manual deployments.

    We currently deploy metadata using both manual and CI jobs and it would be convenient to see all deployments in the same list (for debugging, reporting, monitoring).

  9. Show the Label as a column in the comparison screen

    At present the comparison screen, Name column, only shows the information from the API name, but not the Label (as seen in Setup > Object Manager > Label column).

    When the Label is wildly different from the API name, is would be super useful to have the Label displayed as a column, instead of having to find it in the XML viewer.

  10. When running "Compare and Deploy", or via a similar mechanism, allow the target to be a local zip

    In rarer situations where I need to make some manual adjustments to the metadata XML for a deployment, I'd like to be able to download the metadata to adjust it. Today you need to go through a compare, and at the end, you can download the package, but this can be problematic, since you have to choose the target org, there need to be differences, etc.

    Instead, it would be useful to just choose the source org, select the metadata items, and save the package, without a target org needed.

  11. Allow bulk org access for new users, new org permissions upon adding

    When adding a new user having the ability to give the same level of access to all orgs at once would be greatly beneficial.

    Likewise, when adding a new org and having the ability to set user access to the new org would save time as well.

    We are adding new orgs frequently and will be adding users as well. Saving time on permissions would be great!

  12. Add system log fields for created and updated operations for filters

    It will be helpful if we know who/when a filter is changed. And it would be great if we could lock the filters as an owner.

  14. Allow the ability to "uncheck" No DIfference items on the Selected Items tab

    When cloning previous deployments, there are may cases where items may have been previously deployed, so the now would show as "No Difference". Currently these items can not be unselected for the deployment. It would be useful to be able to remove these from a current deployment to keep the deployment clean.

  15. Suppress "changed on" datetimes in difference viewer where datetime is the same as the metadata retrieval datetime

    The difference viewer will show Changed on values for the current datetime for certain metadata types - probably because SFDC is returning such a value when, in fact, the source didn't change at all


    • Custom object

    • Settings

    • Standard valueset

    • Workflow rules

    displaying the current datetime of the compare run (i.e. the metadata retrieve datetime) is not helpful when trying to filter on changed date in the difference viewer (i.e. sort descending)

  16. Deployment count in the blue banner wrong for old deployments

    When viewing old/past deployment details, that old deployment shows me the big blue banner saying that ---this--- was our {insert total number of deployments ever}th deployment no matter which old deployment I'm viewing.

    This confused me a bit because I wanted to view our say 5th deployment ever so expected the number to say this was our 5th deployment, and I ended up closing the details browser tab twice thinking I pressed the wrong button to view the latest deployment. Yeah I could have looked at the tiny timestamp somewhere on that details view, but this large blue banner/counter just…

  17. Make "Clone package" openable in a new tab

    In Deployment history, there are two buttons I use the "view details" which I can open in a new tab without leaving the list of deployments, and the "clone package" which I can't open in a new tab. I can workaround it easily (duplicate tabs, or first view details then clone from there), but it was disappointing that I have to.

    I needed to re-deploy say 10 deployments into a different sandbox and so the clone package feature was amazingly useful, but this little nag prevented me from entering the blissful nirvana of wielding the perfect tool for the job…

  18. Provide browser notification when refresh draft deployment completes

    It is cool that Compare tells you via a desktop notification / browser tab change when the comparison is done. The notification feature should be extended to Draft Deployment - Refresh Comparison as this can take some time as well

  20. Pending Validation - Copy from Pending Deployment

    Similar to "Pending Deployments" It would be nice to see pending validations. We have several users in gearset, so if we are trying to validate something while someone has already initiated a validation, we receive the error that set up has been locked. So prior to validating a package, it would be great to check if anyone is in the process.
