  1. The option to auto-populate FLS/permissions for selected fields/objects/classes

    I'd need an option to auto-deploy FLS for items i've selected in one click.
    Sometimes the amount of changes is huge, and finding and clicking Permissions for selected items one by one is not a deal. For sure, it's possible to select all Permissions in Source org, and let the wizard to deselect Permissions for missing items in target, however that the result does not usually correspond to items that are in package.

  2. Send different deployment notifications based on the target org type

    Successful deployment notification is for all sandboxes. It would be nice if we can have a separate notification for production and sandboxes as certain people only care what goes to production. Thank you!

  3. Use exact filters of Automated Job

    Currently automated CI job filters are unique to that job and not available as a filter for manual jobs.
    Ability to use the exact current job filter as a filter outside of the CI job.
    Ability to to clone the CI Job filter into a new named filter.

  4. Add filters & search to the Salesforce orgs page

    Add Filter/Search to the Salesforce Orgs page. On Deployment History you have a filter that is very handy when sorting through the list to find a specific deployment. I am currently trying to add multiple new dev Orgs for a client and it is hard to sort through them all. Can you add the Filter/Search option on the Orgs page?

  5. Add Validate pull requests for custom git

    We have self-Manged Gitlab as a git provider.
    It would be good to have the possibility to allow to run validations on pull requests for custom git repositories or

    support on-prem GitLab (submitted as https://gearset.uservoice.com/forums/283474-help-us-improve-gearset/suggestions/39728857-add-validate-pull-requests-for-on-prem-gitlab)

  6. To make it possible to abort started CI job on Continuous integration dashboard.

    At the moment, you need to wait until the comparison is finished and the deployment has been started and then you should go to the org to cancel running deployment. It would be useful to have an option to abort the CI job.

  7. Jira Integration: Include the option to add a comment in JIRA with the URL of the pull request created from Gearset + Assign reviewers

    After a deployment to a git branch, gearset allows to create the pull request from Gearset. It would be nice to:
    1. Have an option to add the pull request URL to the deployment notes
    2. Have the capability of add reviewers (users from the git repo) into the Pull Request

  9. no difference report

    Currently the deployment report that is attached to the Jira ticket includes all "No Difference" components which I don't believe provides any real value. In my instance, this includes endless amount of pages, from what I can tell the changed values I'm actually looking for don't actually exist. I would suggest either excluding from report all together or providing a summarized statement that is just a grouped item for all items that were included in deployment but had no change. Also the report should bring the actual changed items to the top of the report like it is on the…

  10. Ability to specify test suites when deploying apex classes. It would be easier when there are a large # of test classes involved.

  11. User Last loggged in and User Usage

    It would be great to see when a team member last logged in on the user account management page. It would also be great to see like a report or extension on the user page where we can see user usage information. Like number of compares, deployments, etc.. may when last compare was done.

  12. Enable Gearset login from corporate SSO solution

    an additional layer of security and convenience would be to enable Gearset login (that is, login to Gearset) to be done from an enterprise's SSO solution. We use Duo but Okta and others should be supported.

    Just like we can login to Salesforce from our enterprise's SSO , we should be able to login to related apps in our suite of enterprise tools via SSO

  13. Github: Ability to select Reviewers for pull requests created in Gearset

    Currently, you can create a PR after a successful deployment in Gearset. You're able to provide a description and even select it as a draft.

    However, the only potentially necessary field that's missing is "reviewers". This means any CI/CD setup you have that requires an approval requires the user to go into Github just to add the reviewer.

    Since Gearset would have all the team members (and those with linked github accounts), it seems it might be an opportunity to select based on that list and pass the linked username on to github in the PR creation to keep end…

  14. Ability to create Pull Requests for AWS CodeCommit

    Gearset can create Pull Requests for many of the source control systems that it integrates with, but not AWS CodeCommit.

    As AWS users, it would be very useful to use to have this ability so that we didn't need to switch systems to create Pull Requests.

  15. Select source control based on actual setup/connections when starting comparison

    When starting a comparison and selecting source/target environments for Source Control - it shows all connection types including those that I haven't connected.

    With browser cache, it seems to remember the one you selected last. However, for new users (or when you clear cache) it'd be ideal if Gearset would default your source control on this screen to whatever the user has connected. Once a user has connected a source, there's no sense in having the user choose it again at this step.

  16. API to provision users, assign users to connected organisations

    API to provision users, assign users to connected organisations

    It would be hugely benificial to us (60+ connected organisations, 25 employees working in teams for multiple clients at a time) if we could programatically provision/deprovision users and provide access to connected organisations via an api.

    At the moment this is error prone manual work that has to be done by someone with high level access (and as such is usually already short on time).

  17. Functionality to Data Deploy Active Orders

    Salesforce doesn't support the creation or update or standard Order records with a Status Category of Active. This means Gearset is unable to data deploy any active orders. It would be very useful if there was an option for Gearset to temporarily set active orders to a draft status for the deployment or the Order Records and related Order Records, and then set the status back to Active for the final step.

  18. Show/Flag what unlocked package elements are getting updated on Monitoring Jobs

    When you look at the details of a monitoring job there is a field called "Packages Afftected" that shows green when is 0 and orange when >0.

    There is a description that says...

    Unlocked packages have been modified. View the comparison to see details.

    However, when you look at the details there is nothing there to see what unlocked package element was modified. So the warning it is not very helpful at all.

    Can this be implemented so that the warning is actionable.

  19. Explicitly set object-level permissions, even if these are omitted from XML provided by Salesforce API

    Valerio recommended that I post this suggestion following a discussion on 29 August 2019.

    Issue reference:
    https://docs.gearset.com/en/articles/3226459-a-note-on-deploying-custom-object-permissions-on-new-profiles

    Issue:
    1. Remove all object-level access for "Lead" from a custom profile in a source org
    2. Deploy this profile to a target org
    3. The profile in the target org will have access to the "Lead" object ENABLED, because this access is included in the Standard User profile (see document link above)

    The workaround (deploying and then deploying again) is cumbersome and not always practical, e.g. if making automated, one-step deployments outside of Gearset. Failing to make a second deployment means that…

  20. Global Search feature

    It would be very useful to have a Global Search feature within Gearset. This would be used to search the contents of all metadata objects.

    My use case is that sometimes a string has been hardcoded inside a function. The only way to find the function that contains the string is to manually trace through the code. The global search would indicate the function that contains this string.

    Another benefit would be to track dependencies for metadata objects that don't support dependency tracking. For example Aura Components, we could search for the component name.
