  1. Validation job ownership should be transferred

    Good to have capabilities to transfer ownership of validation job to other member in the team so as if one person is on vacation then there should be easy way to transfer ownership of validation job to other member so as if required - Adjustment can be done to CI jobs.

  2. Allow bulk export of selected objects in selected historical data backups

    It would be great to export all, or a selected timeframe, of data backups for a job. I understand this would be a large volume of data so selecting by object would be great.

    For example, if there is a data backup for all objects that runs daily, I'd like to select the Account object and select a backup timeframe of 1/1/2020 - 12/31/2020 to export a .zip folder of 365 Account.csv files.

  3. Lessen Permissions Needed To Run Monitor

    When running Monitor, a user needs to have "Modify All Data" or "Modify Metadata Through Metadata API" permissions, and "Author Apex" is further needed if we want to monitor Apex classes. I understand why an user would need these when comparing for a deployment, but for a more "read-only" use case like running Monitor, is it possible to lessen the permissions needed?

    Context: we're looking into using Gearset for auditing purposes, and the Monitor feature looks to fit our needs; that said, if in order to monitor production changes requires the user to have full deployment permissions (and author apex),…

  4. Add Apex Page Permissions to Repo Dependency Cleaner Functionality

    It seems based on the below doc

    https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/3624846-what-does-gearset-s-repo-dependency-cleaner-do

    That the repo cleaner will remove permission references related to the following deleted items:

    Apex Classes
    Tabs
    Apps
    Object Permissions
    Field Permissions

    Missing from that list is Apex Pages. It'd be great to have that included to clean up references to the deleted page without having to re-run a 2nd comparison for source control.

  5. Inline Editing of metadata

    Inline Editing of metadata
    In order to make our deployment successful we had to download the package, modify the version numbers on the flow definitions, and then compare the local package to the target org. It would be very helpful if we can edit the metadata XML in the UI so we can fix the version numbers.

  6. Allow refresh comparison only for selected items, instead of refreshing the entire metadata filter

    When selecting a metadata filter and then running a comparison and reviewing the results, sometimes you find that a small change is needed to one metadata item. You make the change in the source org, but now the comparison needs to be refreshed.

    Instead of having to refresh the entire comparison, it would be great and save a lot of time to be able to select and refresh specific metadata items from the comparison page.

  7. Select the fields to deploy during a data deployment

    Hi we use the data deployment feature is it possible to only select some fields to deploy data from one org to another and not always all the fields on an object.

  8. Support for WaveRecipe metadata is missing

    There is no support for Wave Recipes currently and we are not able to deploy dashboards via Gearset and Continuous Integration.

  9. Checkboxes to delete multiple packages/validations/deployments at a time

    Hi - feature request:
    Checkboxes on the validated packages (and probably others) screen so that I can delete validated packages more quickly. One by one is a big pain, and it probably uses your storage... and it definitely clutters our workspace.
    Thanks!

  10. Control When Tests are Ran Based on Metadata type

    It would be nice to control when we want tests to run based on the type of changes in the triggering event for CI. Something like only run test classes on update of Apex Classes, Flows, Workflows, and Objects.
    This is a bit of a patch for not having test classes fully optimized but would be helpful with orgs who have lots of profile and layout changes.

  11. Allow capability of excluding IP ranges from Profiles during migration

    Currently IP ranges defined in, say, a sandbox get carried over to the target environment (another sandbox or Production), when Profiles are migrated.
    In some cases this means, these means these IP ranges may have to be manually removed from the target environment.
    It would be great, if there were an option to exclude these IP ranges from the selected Profiles.

  12. Display Deployment Status Progress

    In the past in Gearset, you were able to see the status of your deployment (e.g. 100/200 test classes, etc.) very similar to how you would see the native status tracker on the Deployment Status page within Salesforce Setup. It appears this feature is no longer available in Gearset and there is no status until the deployment complete. It would be great to bring this back to Gearset, so the tool provides the full deployment scope. Since this has been removed, I now have to open an additional page to monitor progress in Salesforce.

  13. Add capability to export components as part of the full deployment history export

    It would be good if we were able to export the individual components that were part of a deployment when we export, say, the full deployment history from the past 6 months, or all time.
    This would help with IT audits.

  14. Sort Deployment Details by New, Changed, Deleted

    Currently, it seems that the list of Deployment Details provided in Successful Deployment reports is sorted alphabetically by metadata type.

    It would be easier to understand the impact of the deployment if the list was sorted first by category (Changed, New, Deleted, No Difference) and then secondly by metadata type within each category.

  15. Create a persistent default setting for Monitoring Job Notifications

    It would be nice if there was a way to default the notification for monitoring jobs to 'send notification only when changed'. Right now, if you set monitoring, you get an email a day from that job, regardless if there was a change or not. You have to manually change it otherwise.

    Nice to have that setting front and center, available when you select monitoring, as well as have a default value for each org type; Prod, Sand, and Dev.

  16. Correctly create Price Book Entries records with different currencies and updated PBEs when they are out of sync (or delete+insert)

    1) Currently PBEs are incorrectly inserted with the company currency as apposed to the currency of the source record.

    2) PBE's currency cannot be updated once created (SF restriction) but because PBE's should not be referenced by Id, (that would be a terrible design decision). It is quite possible to delete and recreate any out of sync records.

  17. Control in which country data backups are stored or alternatively export backups automatically..

    We require the ability to control where our data is stored. At the moment we need our Swiss backup data to be stored on Swiss servers. If this isn't possible it would be great if we can automatically export data via an API endpoint to our Swiss server.

  18. Gearset should control the order of deployment for Report Types, Reports and Dashboards

    Dashboards require Reports, and Reports require Report Types. Yet when I attempt to deploy a group of components that comprises all of the necessary components, I'm hit with errors that the required components don't exist <yet>. That shouldn't happen. This is going to <artificially> require me to do multiple deployments. :(

  19. add the ability to filter Git repos on connection

    It would be useful to be able to select only applicable Git repos from source control that will interact with Gearset. A user may have many repos that they need on their account, but of those there may only be 1 which would be used via GearSet. It would be great if we could select which repos should be available when setting up the connection to our source control (specifically I am requesting GitHub but I think this would be useful for all source control integrations).

  20. Add the ability to filter Jira Projects

    A Jira account may be linked to many projects which will never be interacted with through Gearset. However those projects might still be legitimate for the user, so they can change their project access on the Jira side. It would be great if we could select projects in the connection that we want to choose from when associating to a Jira item.
