  1. Add Upload CSV functionality to create an upload template for CPQ deployments

    For CPQ Deployments add an "Upload from CSV" feature where a user could upload a file with specific External IDs across multiple objects to tell Gearset what to migrate in a single click.

    For example, the user could list the Object API name in Column A of the sheet and the External ID in column B and then Gearset would parse this and create a Data Deployment based off of those records specifically. This would be incredibly useful for any CPQ deployment where you need to only deploy specific records not the entire object!

  2. Plain text list export of metadata

    There are times when I'm in an email thread with other developers and I want to share a list of metadata that I'm trying to deploy via Gearset. It would be nice to have a button after a validation or deployment (failure or success) that copies in plain text a list of everything in the deployment. The list not only has the name of each metadata, but also the type of metadata it is.

  4. Separate Filters for CI Jobs to reflect filter edits

    Currently, if you have a saved filter being used in CI jobs, any edits/changes to that filter are not reflected in the CI jobs that use said filter.

    It'd be great if we could isolate filters for CI jobs so that we could edit CI job filters that would then affect every CI job they're being used with instead of having to edit every job and re-select the filter whenever a change is needed.

  5. Coerce run specific tests when package only has test classes

    If the deployment package (especially if target is PROD) contains ONLY Apex classes annotated as @IsTest, then coerce (w/ user confirmation) the deployment to just run those test classes.

    This helps avoid errantly clicking the default Deploy and waiting 20-30 minutes for all tests to run. If only test classes are being deployed, by definition, the underlying code hasn't changed and all tests DON'T need to be rerun.

  6. 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

  7. Allow for selecting/unselecting Filter by Package.xml

    When doing a clone or a refresh comparison today the ability does not exist to add or remove the option of whether you are filtering by package.xml. I would like to see this added.

    For us what might occur at times is that we have a release occur where this is accidentally selected and we find that a number of items are missing and due to this being selected. We have no way to remove the selection and have ended up starting over. One of a number of scenarios where it would be nice to have the option to do…

  9. Add the option to note successfully deployed components in CI notifications

    When a CI job is configured to post to slack, and a job fails, it is very useful to see the message posted with information about what failed (error message, number of components that failed).

    However, when a CI job succeeds, it only shows the counts of changed/new/deleted objects.

    It would be very useful to have the option to list out what was deployed - this would make it easier for devs/qa users who monitor these slack notifications to understand which deployments are relevant to them at a glance.

  10. Pulling object dependencies during data backup

    A cool feature would be the ability for Data backup to have the ability to select object dependencies when you select a particular object for instances where you want to backup a subset of data and not just your entire org

  11. 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.

  12. On 'deployment' and 'draft deployment' pages provide a way to see the filter information without having to open the full comparison screen.

    On 'deployment' and 'draft deployment' pages provide a way to see the filter information without having to open the full comparison screen. We need a quick way to make sure that item level filtering is being used on each metadata type

  13. The comparison screen takes too long to load and times out with large packages.

    With large packages the comparison screen takes too long to load, >15 min, and can cause Chrome browser to time out. Can we have an option to not load the details of the differences in the bottom panel, only object names and then click a button to download only difference for a particular item on-demand? I normally don't need to see the diff

  15. When deploying Data, it would be nice to be able to set field values

    When deploying Data, it would be nice to be able to set field values. It could be just to null them or set a value. It could be part of the configuration or data masking.

  16. Static Code Analysis for JavaScript Components

    It would be great if Gearset could run static code analysis on JavaScript as well as Apex when deploying Lightning Components.

  17. Create a way to apply a regex to all currently selected metadata types when building a filter

    The regex support you currently have doesn't really allow for complex (multi-match) regex matching, which is probably ok

    If I select, say 116 of the 124 metadata types identified, and then have to apply a regex pattern to each one, it gets pretty tedious. Click-paste-apply 116 times, and then 116 again for the other half of the complex match. I'd write a tool to automate configuring a filter in gearset. :)

    If I "select all" then deselect the 8 types i don't want, and THEN apply a regex to all types, that would be pretty great.

  18. track metadata filter changes

    Filters are shared by default. However, if someone changes the filter, I cannot tell what has been changed, who made the change or when it was changed. Ideally, I'd like a version history for each filter.

  19. Segregate metadata changes due to SFDC release

    If I compare my production org to a preview sandbox that has been upgraded to the new release, I see some changed, new, and deleted items that appear to be due to the upgrade. For the most part it probably doesn't make sense (or isn't possible) to deploy those differences in either direction, so it would be nice to be able to exclude them or have them flagged somehow.

    For example, in Winter '20 several fields were added to the OpportunityContactRole object. They show up as custom fields in the comparison. If I try to deploy them to production, the…

  20. Show summary of selected Filter conditions

    Would like ability to select a saved filter and see a summary of all the 'checked' filter conditions in it. Useful in verifying a filter or shared filter before using it.
