  1. Allow for Object Deployments without subcomponents to git

    When deploying an object to git currently there is no support to ONLY deploy the object metadata.
    We have a large managed package that your code requires the .object file for an object in that managed package to exist for me to deploy fields or other customizations for said object git -> org. When I deploy org -> git to get the .object file into my repo it also grabs all the fields on the managed package object which I don't want/need.
    I don't want the fields and I need to specifically get it from the target org because if…

  2. dynamic search function after comparison

    dynamic search function

    it would be helpful after the comparison to look for multiple components at the same time and not each one individually. for the release we get a list of components example from the developer:

    CustomerAddress
    Customer
    Namec
    Customer_Tel
    c
    ...

    I want to include the entire list in one search, and I want gerset to search for each row individually. Example in SQL:

    SELECT * FROM table
    WHERE column1 LIKE '%customeraddress%'
    OR column1 LIKE '%customer
    namec%'
    OR column1 LIKE '%customer_tele
    c%'
    OR column1 LIKE '%customertele_c%'
    ...

    this change would save us…

  3. Add a Tab to manage Metadata Comparison Filter

    Add a menu item or tab where we can
    1. Share, delete, edit names of the custom Metadata Comparison Filters.
    2. See the comparison history, who used the filter and when in team etc.

  4. 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.

  5. Add a 'flag' to ignore XML 'utf' versus 'UTF' in XML header.

    I believe there exists a mismatch with the XML header reference to UTF in the Gearset library to what is used in SFDX.

  6. BitBucket commit on a successful Org deployment

    It would be a nice feature to have a setting on the deployment summary page to also commit to a git branch with deploying to an org.

  7. Integrate with Rally as an option in addition to JIRA/ADO

    We have customers who use Rally to manage their requirements similar to how many use Jira. Would be great to have this capability

  8. Add Time Column to the CI Deployment page

    Due to recent latency issues regarding SF performance issues, I would like to quickly see how long each CI job takes without having to download an individual report for each job. This can either be solved by either:

    1. Adding a field to the CI Deployment page so that I can compare each CI job

    2. Allow me to extract a complete report of all of the CI jobs and open it in excel with the time column so that I can compare the values. I can currently do this from the Deployment history page, however this does not include the CI…

  9. On Create Pull Request, auto populate details with commit messages

    Similar to the way Bitbucket and GitHub work, it would be nice if the PR description was autopopulated from the commit messages (1 per line)

  10. Make it available to commit custom labels that are part of a managed package

    Custom Labels of managed packages do not show up in the comparison because they cannot be changed and therefore are not deployable. However, the (override) translations of these Custom Labels do show up and are deployable. It is possible to deploy & commit the translations but this poses an issue if you commit to git since gearset suggests to leave them out of the commit because they are missing a dependency. If you ignore the suggestion and commit them anyway, they'll be removed the next time the repo cleaner runs. This way, it cannot reliably be kept in git.

  12. Retrieve Metadata into local environment (e.g. using VSCode pluging)

    This would make the integration of Version Control and Gearset nicer. Where now user has to go to Gearset deploy to a feature branch, afterwards, go to VSCode pull from the feature branch.

  13. Rolling back deployment made by CI JOB

    Currently it is possible to roll back a deployment made by CI Job, though that rollback will only be performed to the specified Org. Hence, other Orgs have to be rolled back individually.

    Use case: I have propagated changed from my Sandbox to Staging. An issue was identified that requires a substantial amount of work where that feature cannot be included in the next deployment to production, hence it needs to be removed from Staging. Though, other sandboxes back propagated that feature because they assumed it should work.

    It would be amazing if the rollback used Github commits, so the…

  14. Associated Work Items through Commit message

    As a Developer, I want to use a unique ID from the work item I am working on
    when I make a GearSet commit
    So the work item I am working with (like Jira) can have a comment stating it was deployed
    and I don't have to manually go to a separate process to update the ticket.

    Say my work items are in jira and I am working user story 100.
    There is a Jira ID that is unique to that work item.

    When I specify a commit
    instead of going through the separate process to find the work item…

  15. Support deployment of password and session policies via Gearset

    According to the Salesforce developer link https://help.salesforce.com/s/articleView?id=000349181&type=1

    Password and Session policies include a numeric code which is equal to a epoc timestamp. This timestamp will be different in each org. In order for deployment to succeed, the timestamp code in the metadata name must match the target org. Since all orgs are different, there isn't an automatic way to do this.

    Please create a feature in gearset that will automatically replace the timestamp numeric code with that of the target org so that we can use gearset to deploy password and sessions policies.

  16. Clone Problem Analyzer Templates

    With CI jobs, you may need to refine over time your Problem Analyzer templates

    However, there is no clone button and you have to carefully set up the new template (as edit-in-place is not supported when the template is already assigned to a CI job - at least that is what the in-app guidance tells you)

    So --

    a) Allow Clone from page app.gearset.com/problem-analyzer-templates
    b) Allow an easy way to assign the new template to all CI jobs without having to do each 1 x 1

  17. Spurious analyzer; Required fields on target when deploying Custom Field Permission to a Permission Set

    If you deploy Custom Field Permissions for fields such as Task.ActivityDate or Task.WhatId to a Permission Set, the Gearset Analyzer auto-checks Do Not Deploy and shows this message: "Some field permissions in the deployment are for fields that Gearset thinks are required fields on the target side. Field permissions cannot be set for required fields."

    While this is a useful message when deploying Custom Field Permissions to a Profile, it is not a useful message when deploying to a Permission Set as that Permission Set might be used in conjunction with Profile "Minimum Access - Salesforce". If you are using…

  18. Remove/Deactivate new feature for batch comparison

    A few weeks ago, Gearset added a new feature to officially make the comparison faster, by showing already results of first batch and add the rest later on.

    This feature makes it much more difficult to do comparisons. First of all, I don't see any benefit. I still need to wait for the whole comparison to finish, because I still need to now, what has changed. Why should I look into the first things, when I need to look into it again, after the rest is compared. So before I can select anything, I need to wait the whole time…

  19. Add More Granular Control over Email Notifications

    Allow users to enable/disable categories of email notifications at the user level. E.g. success emails for monitoring jobs, deploy succeeded/failed emails, etc.

    Alternatively, or possibly in addition, allow users to "mass-edit" job notification settings, so we don't have to edit each one individually.

  20. UI Change: On any pop-up page using Source Control, auto-expand to show Create Branch button

    On a monitor job (and probably elsewhere), clicking "Deploy To" and then selecting Version Control target, you get a default branch, typically master. If you click the link to Create a new Branch from Master - you input the name of your new branch, but the Create Branch button is hidden below the display and you need to scroll down to show it. The Start Comparison button is where the Create Branch button should be, so you end up starting your comparison instead of creating the branch first. Suggesting to change the pop-out window to expand to show both buttons…
