  1. Add support for Currency and Percent fields to be masked during a data deployment

    We have some custom objects that hold financial data so masking currency and Percent fields will help when doing data deployments

  2. Suppress the <deprecated> tag in CustomObject, CustomField

    When retrieving metadata from 1GP packaging orgs, the <deprecated> tag appears in the source and, if you deploy to VCS, is preserved. But if you subsequently deploy to a scratch org, and back to VCS, the deprecated tag no longer appears in the scratch org and thus shows up as a diff in the Difference Viewer - confusing the user.

    Doc says this tag is reserved for future use and until such time as it is used, suppress

  3. Add Additional Deployment Preferences for JIRA integration

    Currently the Jira Ticket Deployment Preferences don't give you enough options to manage the expected behavior with our process. Right now there is too much noise on our tickets and we want the option to reduce that. For example, we do not need to comment on the ticket when attempting to validate deployment, just as we don't need it for failed deployments (which you already have as a feature). We simply want a comment with the deployment notes when a deployment is made since this would reflect the actual system changes that took place with this feature/issue.

  6. Tie scratch org URL to enumerated list of scratch orgs on My Connections

    UX suggestion (tie list of scratch orgs to URL)

    If you use Gearset to create a scratch org, the list of scratch orgs on the My Connections page does not tie to the visible URL of the scratch org you log into

    This gets to be a real issue for the multi-tasker who might have several scratch org tabs open at once but has no way of knowing which one is which vis-a-vis the Gearset enumeration of how the scratch org was logged into the first place. Drilling into the user's name is too clunky

  7. Move the configured regex filters to the top of the scrollable pane (currently at bottom) of

    Move the regexes to the top of the pane so one can see they exist and not have to guess that they exist at the bottom of the pane.

    Note the example, selects all custom objects - this is useful for ISVs

    example: For custom object, there are 100+ entries for standard and custom objects. If you add a regex, it appears at the bottom of the scrollable pane, after all the enumerated objectnames. Coming back into a custom filter, it is not obvious that you had even created a regex as you would have to know to scroll to…

  9. One stop shopping for scratch org creation

    Too many steps to get a scratch org usable for use - especially when compared to a CLI script.

    If the model is VCS -> Scratch Org, then the following should be doable in one step:

    1 - Create scratch org
    2 - Populate scratch org with metadata in VCS
    3 - Populate scratch org with SObject tree data from VCS (optional)

    By definition, the scratch org is empty so with a properly configured filter, the VCS metadata is implicitly all NEW and can be preselected checked

    If the VCS contains multiple packages, then the pipeline config could identify which…

  10. Use triggering branch as source branch in git-sourced CI jobs

    Currently:
    We have to define a single fixed source branch in a CI job, when it has a Git-Source.

    Desired:
    Option to say "use triggering branch". It should use the branch, where current commit-hook-call comes from.

    It should allow Pipelines to test also all development branches e.g. with "Validation only" CI-job.

  11. Include the static code analysis report in the deployment notes so it can be integrated with Azure DevOps

    We would like to have a link in the Pull Request or Azure DevOps work item to the static code analysis report so the tech leads can review the report.

  12. Export Object level and OWD (sharing settings) in permissions reports (in addition to the field-level)

    Currently, the permission reporting feature only provides field-level permissions export to CSV for all Profiles and Permission Sets. This is a very small part of the overall security and sharing permissions model. Here are a couple of items that I recommend adding to the permission reporting as a starting point:


    1. Object-level permissions (read/create/edit/delete/view all/modify all) for Profiles and Permission Sets

    2. Sharing Settings (organization wide defaults) for all objects

    In the future, it would be nice to have additional permissions from Profiles and Permission Sets available to export such as:
    1. App assignments
    2. Tab visibility
    3. Apex classes
    4. Visualforce…

  13. "Next" button on comparison page sometimes does not work

    Sometimes, the "Next" button on the comparison page does not work. In the Developer Console I can see a 403 response from "POST https://app.gearset.com/api/static-code-analysis", traced to "raygun.js:2016".

    In this case, I have to reload the comparison page.

    This happens quite often (I estimate 1 in 5 times).

    I don't think that it's a timeout issue (CSRF token or sth.), because just right now I only marked one file in the comparison list and wanted to proceed, and the button didn't work.

    On other occasions, I spend a lot more minutes on the comparison page, and the button works perfectly.

  14. Add an option to not run the comparision part in CI job (sfdx like)

    When you are pushing a project with sfdx, there is no compare, sfdx just push the whole package.

    It will save a lot of times.

  17. Allow CI to do a quick deploy

    Allow gearset CI to do a quick deploy either by default or via a setting on the Job definition.
    Our tests run for nearly 90 minutes and are currently run twice in succession causing a lot of frustration. Once when a PR is validated and then when it is merged and deployed.

  19. Enable Dependency Cleaner only jobs on Git repos

    Similar to Unit Test jobs for connected Salesforce orgs, it would be great to have independent Dependency Cleaner jobs for our source repos to help identify problems separate from any particular commit.

    In our flow, not every commit goes through Gearset, so it's possible that our repo could become "undeployable" as a result of these non-Gearset commits. If this occurs, it then comes confusing on the next Gearset commit since the Dependency Cleaner will add all the deletions it deems required which don't relate at all to the PR being reviewed.

    A the end of the day, we'd like our…

    It would be great to get an end of year report or report of how many migrations were completed and a high-level list of components.

    Example:
    Custom metadata, lightning components, page layouts, fields, apex, etc.
