    • Allow for data to be anonymised when moved between environments

      When copying data from production to sandboxes we need to be able to anonymise it for data protection, i.e. GDPR. We also do not want to accidentally email anyone from non-production systems.

      • give the ability to ignore certain changes between Sandbox and Production enviornments

        After deploying from a Sandbox to a Production environment, you will always see a 'change' for Custom Objects and Custom Fields because there is no Encryption Scheme (for example)

        • Jira: ability to associate tickets during comparison

          Would like the ability to associate Jira tickets during the comparison process so that it can be saved to draft deployments and can continue to add as needed. Currently it appears you can only add Jira tickets after you have finalized all items for deployment.

          • Ability to add custom trigger points to trigger CI from source control

            At the moment the tool allows you to only kick off CI jobs when a branch is updated.
            This is actually limiting the capability of the tool in itself,
            because services like Bitbucket allows you customize trigger points, as to when they should ping the webhook;
            such as the creation of pull request, merging a pull request.

            The two trigger points mentioned above are specifically very important because you would want to run validation CI jobs on the creation of pull request or when the merge completes so that you can actually ascertain if your branch compiles.

            Based on an…

              • Notify Slack when deployment is successful

                I would like to inform Slack on when a manual deployment is successful or failed. It will tell me what the source environment and what was the destination environment. It will also tell me if what the success/fail ratio of the tests that were run.

                • Improve detection of custom fields on Managed Package objects coming from Git

                  If I have a managed package object in Git, Gearset does not recognize it as managed package code in its comparison to a Salesforce org. This is a problem since it may not recognize a change if a custom field has been added to the managed package object.

                  • Add an auto-save feature while building deployment packages

                    As Gearset is run through a web browser, if the browser happens to freeze while a package is being built, you don't have the opportunity to save it as a Draft Deployment. An auto-save feature would allow someone to pick up where they left off, or when the last auto-save was done, without having to start from scratch.

                    • Refresh Comparison should have an option: "Selected Files only"

                      A common use case is:
                      1. Compare default(66) source and target
                      2. Select some files
                      3. Deploy
                      4. Get some error indicative of either missing file or out-of-date file(s)
                      5. Fix file(s) in underlying org/source branch.
                      6. "Back to results" Optionally mark additional files as selected.
                      7. "Refresh Comparison"

                      This takes too long, you just want the selected files to compare (and really, just get on with deploying). You don't want to wait for both source and target metadata to load and compare. You don't want to uncheck/check specific metadata components that represent your selected files. You just want a…

                      • refresh comparison UX - echo the filter used in the original comparison

                        When you click Refresh Comparison, the dialog does not echo anywhere the original filter name used in the comparison-being-refreshed. You just get a x/y filters being used.

                        Always good to remind the user as to which filters were originally selected without having to scroll through the list

                        • Display "Metadata comparison (custom) filter" used on "Comparison in progress" -screen

                          Hi! I just started to evaluate Gearset. Looking good. When I was staring at "Comparison in progress"-screen this came to my mind:

                          Sometimes it takes a bit longer than expected and I start to think: "OMG - What custom filter I used? - Probably I'm comparing everything - That's why it takes so long - Maybe I should cancel this job?".

                          It would be more reassuring if the Metadata comparison (custom) filter being used was also shown on that "Comparison in progress" screen.

                          • Allow comparisons of a single commit from a VCS

                            Currently, you can select a VCS repo and branch to use for comparison. It'd be great if you could select a specific commit from that branch, so that you're only looking at an atomic set of changes. This would allow for fine-grained comparison and deployment of changes.

                            • Allow teams to share custom git repositories

                              It would be nice to be able to share custom git repositories with the entire team. At this time, each team member that does deployments needs to configure each custom git repo in Gearset. Besides requiring them to set it up, it also means I need to give each person the credentials.

                                    When a CI job fails, the bad code remains in the GitHub repo. I'd like to see a way to revert the commit/PR that caused that failure so that any CI jobs for new, unrelated, commits/PRs won't fail while the developer is working to resolve the issue.

                                    • Expand the user security model to restrict user compare / deployment access to defined comparison filters

                                      Hi guys -

                                      In many instances, we would like to restrict user access to certain compare / deploy metadata filters. In our case, it would be rare that all metadata changes are to be deployed and we would like to give our engineers access to only certain filters. This would reduce the risk that items that should not be deployed at a high level will not be deployed. In the current model, if a user has deploy access, they can deploy anything and everything. This is what we are looking to avoid.

                                      Thanks in advance for your time!

                                      Best,

                                      Richard

                                      • Improve comparison performance

                                        If there is one thing that is :-( about Gearset is that for moderate size orgs (a few thousand objects), the default 64 comparison takes too long.

                                        You want to initiate a deployment from source to target and, for whatever reason, you want to make sure you didn't miss anything that needs to be deployed

                                        So, to be safe, you initiate the 64 default comparison.

                                        And you wait (downloading, comparison). This can take several minutes. You go on to other tasks and your zeal to get the deployment done went off onto other things as the comparison time is too…

                                          I'd like to be able to drop a package.xml file on the New comparison screen. Doing that will have two effects.

                                          First off, it will drive the selection of which metadata types to include in the comparison.

                                          Secondly, it will automatically select the components listed in the package.xml on the comparison results page.

                                          This provides a really good way to expediting a deployment, since package.xml are used pretty universally by both IDEs and standard deployment tools (including packages).It also helps me take advantage of the intelligence of automatic dependency and all of the other goodies that Gearset has. Basically I…
