    • Allow option to select certain test classes to NOT run. Include an exclusion list of tests not to run

      When deploying code, it would be nice to have an option of having an exclusion list of test classes to not run.

        • Display the Filter used in the Comparison history screen

          It would be helpful in finding the right comparison to look at if you could see on the Comparison History screen which filter was used. It would also be helpful when looking at the comparison details to know which filter was used.

          • Export PMD rulesets/configuration as xml file

            This would allow us to configure our rules in Gearset and then apply the same ruleset during our local development. Until we can upload our own xml config file, please add the ability to export the Gearset rules instead.

            • Selection Count Mismatch

              The Selection count on ‘Compare and Deploy’ page doesn’t match with ‘Items Selected’ on ‘Draft Deployment’ when a draft deployment is opened. Having this in sync will help user that all selections are going in the deployment.

                  • Give Permissions to Edit Automated Job Settings

                    Adding a feature to give users permissions to edit & delete Automated Test Jobs would be great. Today I had to hunt down a colleague to be have him edit his job when all I had to do was change the schedule. This feature would have saved a lot of time.

                      • Add the option to purge on delete

                        The metadata API has a boolean option to "purge on delete", i.e. permanently erase deleted items rather than just moving them to the recycle bin. This option is not exposed in Gearset currently, but rather hardcoded to "false". For CI scenarios in particular, it would be extremely helpful to be able to specify that this option should be set to "true" for deployments.

                        • Be able to exclude single items from comparison

                          E.g. If I generally want to include all Custom fields for all Objects in the comparison, but there’s one specific field that I don’t ever want to send across to the target org, it’ll keep popping up and I’ll have to uncheck it each time.

                          • Track Items Added to Draft Packages

                            It would be nice to be able to see which items within a comparison are part of Draft Packages. We have a need to build multiple packages from a single Comparison of Instances. This can be done by creating many Drafts, but it is sometimes difficult to know if items have been added to a draft package already. If we could visually see this, it would allow us to generate and confirm our packages much faster.

                            • Allow for the masking of data during a Data Deployment

                              During a data deployment it should be possible to mask the data in specific fields. For example, if I were importing Account and Contact data from production into a sandbox I would want to be able to mask email address so that we can't erroneously send actual customers emails while we're testing

                                Should it be possible to set an equivalent of "friendly name" in Gearset but one that can also be spread to Saleforfce.

                                • add the ability to run static code analysis against an org or source control, simply click refresh button to re-run it and see results

                                  This will give you a "run code analysis -> see results -> fix issues -> push to source control (or an org) -> repeat" workflow.

                                    • test class not captured in deployment history

                                      It would be nice to capture whatever test classes ran for code coverage deployment of classes/triggers in the deployment summary in the Test Results section. You already have a section for this test results so why not add the class names used in the report. We have come across many classes deployed without their appropriate test classes and it is hard tracking/documenting which test classes were used to deploy these as there are no documentations in the class.

                                      • Allow for custom metadata permissions to be included with a single click when custom fields are being deployed

                                        For example; when adding new custom fields, you generally have to add the permissions as an additional line item to the deployment. Having a checkbox or something that will have gearset automatically add the permissions associated with the metadata currently in the deployment list would speed up the process. Users should also be allowed to deselect lines that were automatically added.

                                        • Add default compare filter - Code changed by me today, changed by me last 7

                                          A super common comparison done by a developer is to see only the Apex changes done by that developer today , or in the last x days

                                          Since the last changed dates on Apex (VF, triggers, components) is super reliable whereas it is useless on Custom Field/Workflow), the suggestion applies only to Apex or code-type changes

                                          Gearset would fetch only those code items changed in the last x days, then present in the difference viewer the changes pre-sorted in descending date order

                                          This feature would eliminate multiple clicks just to deploy a handful of recently-made code changes in the comparison…
