  1. Show Metadata API version used to retrieve metadata for comparison on comparison result page

    It would save time and give confidence if the specific Metadata API version number used to retrieve the metadata was displayed on the comparison results page.

  2. Precision Deployments (available for Layouts) for all the meta data

    Precision Deployments for Layout is a great improvement, it would be great to have the same feature for other meta data, particularely for : Fields picklists, global value sets, List Views, Reports, Profiles, Permission Sets and why not Lightning Pages, now that the Dynamic Form is available for Acc, Contacts & Opp

  3. Pull Request Branch Filter/restriction

    Currently creating a pull request from the "Create pull request Screen" provides the user with a list of all the branches.

    The default of this seems to be based on the last location you had selected when you created your branch (This usually ends up being main). As we have a pipeline this is the last place you want anyone being able to create a PR into!

    It would be great if we could whitelist/blacklist a bunch of Branch names on this dropdown to stop users accidentally selecting main when creating a PR (for most users this would be one…

  4. False error - 'Field permission cannot be set for Required Fields'

    Deploying few field permissions through CI, there is an error 'Field permission cannot be set for Required Fields' in the Problem Analyzer, but actually the fields are not marked as Required in the target. Lead.Pronoun, Lead.GenderIdentity fields.

  5. Expand the options for "Run job" times on the continuous integration job setup.

    Currently the "Run job" option has times for 1, 2, 4 and 24 hours. With international teams working on projects, it would be nice to allow for something like every 8 hours. That could either be a new set option in the list, or allow for a "custom" option. If the pipelines can handle between 1 and 24 hours, let us selection "custom" and input the hours for the job interval to run.

  6. exclude specific JSON keys when comparing Vlocity/Omnistudio metadata

    We are seeing Omniscripts showing as different on certain JSON keys. These keys always change and should be excluded from your comparison.
    The impact of this is Omniscript deployments require the LWCs to be compiled and if we deploy Omniscripts unintentionally, their LWCs are not recompiled and functionality breaks for the users.

  7. Flow equivalent of Static Code Analysis-esque rules

    Code Analysis rules run against Apex in Gearset. As Salesforce development continues to rely on Flows as the main tool for declarative automation, it's becoming challenging to catch known inefficiencies, known issues, and discouraged usages. It would really set Gearset a part as a deployment tool to utilize issue detection or run "rules" against Flow metadata to call out potential issues or flows not following best practices to even prevent a deployment or commit from occurring.

    Examples: SOQL or DML in a loop, the number of elements for flows (prior to api v57) or general overall complexity, lack of Descriptions…

  8. Remove limitation of number of PRs to be added to a Release (Azure DevOps + Gearset)

    Gearset automatically adds all PR details for a release in description box (Azure DevOps PR) which has max character limit of 4000 and only 16-18 PRs can be added to a release because of it. When we add one more PR after the limit is reached then the next PR does not get added to the Release and we need to create another release for them which is not correct approach as other releases may have some dependency on 1st and thing may fail in production. We need a way to disable adding description to Azure DevOps Release PR so…

  9. Maintain version history for static code analysis rule set.

    Need to maintain version history of static code analysis when creating a new set of rule ,who made the change , what was the previous version , what rules were there is previous version etc. Right now we cant even clone to create a new version and upgrade on top of it.

  10. [Data Backup] Allow field filtering on the Job History Search page

    The ability to search for a specific record in the data backup Job History search tab is very helpful. As it exists today, you can search by ID or by Value - it appears that if you search by Value, it will try to find any record with that value on some subset of fields for the object chosen. However, if you have a very large dataset, the search takes an extremely long time to execute.

    Here is a real world example for my company- we have Person Accounts enabled in our org and have about 9M records. More often…

  11. Add the ability to add "Shared Mailboxes" to "Deployment Notification."

    It would be logical to have the ability to add a shared mailbox to the "deployment notifications" for individuals.

    The current logic is that you need to add a user, however the only way to do this is create a SF user in a DEV org for the shared mailbox which is not clean or logical for a mechanism of a notification.

  12. Limit who can connect Production or Specific Orgs

    Our users may have access to certain orgs to do manual changes (we are working on reducing, but will probably never get to 0). Ability for us to block who can connect production can enforce usage of pipelines and prevent users from connecting their own user where they would get deployment access.

  14. Microsoft Teams CI Deployment Job Notifications - Add Source Commit

    There should be parity with the content included with a Teams web hook notification. With Slack, the Source Commit attribute is included.

    With Teams, it's omitted. Please add so this data point is available with Teams. Current output illustration.

  15. Fix CI PR Search Bar

    The Search Bar in the CICD Pipelines appears to be using a custom matching logic that is awkward at best and outright misleading at worst. I start searching for a PBI with a term like '1093' and get 1 result, In then add an additional 3 to it ('10933') and am presented with 3 results, none of which have the term '10933' anywhere in them.

    The algorithm appears to chunk parts of the search value and then 'fuzzy match' using each 'chunk' of string. So by adding a 3 to 1093, I was all of the sudden searching for all…

  16. Audit API - Production Filtering

    From a compliance perspective, we only need to ingest production changes. It appears there are fields like 'SalesforceOrgType' on Anonymous Apex Endpoint and 'TargetMetadataLocationType' on Deployments Endpoint.

    It would be great if we could filter those, even better if you could bring in Production Org ID / Name into that filtering ability and in response as well.

  17. Disable Pipeline Back-propagation for Static Environments

    We would like to have the option to disable the back-propagation in the pipelines for static environments or have more options to control how the back-propagation should behave, like not running the PR validations for these types of Pull Requests.

    When new changes reach the master branch, those changes should be pushed to the branch linked to a Salesforce environment. As it is today, the changes are back-propagated through new Pull Requests and because of the pipeline default config, the unit tests need to run which can block the sandboxes for some time depending on the complexity of the release…

  18. having a Release Manager role within a Gearset team

    I want the ability to set specific users as release managers and only these users can deploy to a production org. Only this role should be able to create a direct authentication to production. Other roles should be blocked to create a direct authentication to production or blocked from selecting production as a target org.

  19. Deploy Now and Validate Package Buttons

    Presently, the Deploy Now and Validate Package buttons are positioned adjacent to each other. Occasionally, there is a risk of unintentionally selecting the Deploy Now button before the package has been validated. This can result in potential issues arising. To address this, I recommend the following actions:

    1. Enable the Deploy Now button only after the Validate Package process is successfully completed.
    2. Consider repositioning the buttons within the User Interface if both buttons share the same screen.
    3. Alternatively, place the Deploy Now button after the Validate Package screen in the sequence.

    Thanks.

  20. Deploy Managed Custom Filters Globally

    When we associate a custom filter with a particular CI job, and then make changes to the filter, give the user the option to push those changes to all jobs (list them out) that use that named filter.
