  1. Allow Owner role to enable delegated org access of other users

    If another user doesn't already have delegated access granted and their is a deployment with an issue there is no way for someone else to rollback the deployment and no way to override it.

  2. Data Deployment Template that supports complex rules

    Looking to be able to setup a Data Deployment template that supports complex rules with record limits.
    For example...
    - Select 100 accounts that have been modified recently that belong to division A that contain at least 1 contact, 1 opportunity and 1 activity.
    - Select 100 accounts that have been modified recently that belong to division B that contain at least 1 contact, 1 opportunity and 1 activity.
    - Select 100 accounts that have been modified recently that belong to division C that contain at least 1 contact, 1 opportunity and 1 activity.

  3. Show Formula Comparisons line by line

    When comparing formulas (in validations, formula fields, workflow criteria...) the comparison should be done line by line.

    Considering the whole formula a block and only showing that "something" has changed in the formula is not useful when looking for conflicts between environments.

    When pushing changes between environments, admins are checking to make sure they are not overwriting other changes with their update. They most probably know the formula has changed (that was their job) but they need to ensure no unwanted changes are added/deleted from the target environment.

    In long formulas with many lines (potentially >100) it's not easy to…

  4. Have an ability to modify message which is posted to Slack channel.

    It would be nice to have the ability to modify this notification message somehow.
    E.g. include a number of PR which was merged into the main branch. Or remove extra information such number of deployed components.

    now it looks too big

  5. Allow users set their own default tab view when viewing the comparison between orgs

    The recent change (March '22) to change the default tab when viewing a comparison from Changed Items to 'All Items' makes it more difficult to quickly see changes, because maybe there aren't any. The All Items list would also be extremely long if the org is particularly complex.
    As such, I propose that you give users the ability to select their own default tab when the comparison page loads, so we can choose to always view 'New' or 'Changed' items.

  6. Unify the message when you authenticate an org with a username that has been shared. It uses the term "delegated" instead of "shared"

    Unify the message when you authenticate an org with a username that has been shared. It uses the term "delegated" instead of "shared". This could be confusing.

  7. Ability to filter records on field "ischanged" when doing a data backup comparison.

    Instead of just being able to filter on field values when comparing a data backup. Give the user the ability to filter on a certain field being changed.

  9. Sort Validation Only CI Jobs

    In the CI Job page, you can sort the top-level jobs by different columns (Job Name, Source, Target, etc...) but you can't sort the actual instances of that job.

    We can get up to 30 PRs that are all being validated, and it would be nice to be able to sort them in some controllable way. It seems to rearrange them in whatever way it feels.

  10. Be Able to deploy Portal Sharing Settings and Organisation Wider Default Sharing Settings at the same time

    For example if attempting to deploy
    OWD permission Read -> Private, and Portal Sharing Set None -> Read. Gearset will fail validation due to SF complaining that Portal Sharing Settings cannot grant Read permission, since OWD is already giving that access.
    Though what SF sees is that Portal Sharing Set is trying to give Read when it already has that access.

    Therefore, if I want to make the deployment then I would have to do in 2 steps.

  11. Allow delegated users to edit environment variables

    My user is setup on our CI and I have a number of environment variables setup on Custom Labels for ID's.

    Whilst this works great the main issue is if I am Sick/On Holiday there is no way for someone else to go in and add/edit the environment variables thus making me a single point of failure/Reference.

    What would be great would be either have Environment Variables setup at a CI level and delegated users have the ability to go in and edit/create new ones against the CI (This would ensure only those that know what they are doing are…

  12. Allow Data Deployment to handle more complex structures

    Currently, user is able to select Obj A, Obj B that references Obj A, Obj C that references Obj B. And, in the next step of data deployment it allows user to select Objects where Obj A, B or C, and objects references by those objects.

    If we ignore above example, I want to be able to select: objA(id), objB(id, objA), objC(id, objB, objD), objD(Id), objE(Id, objD). Where the first object I select and everything else is filtered on is objA.

  13. Automate Salesforce org connection on sandbox refresh

  14. Activity Task Event field level security validation in Profile

    Hi Gearset Team,

    I would like to have a metadata validation for profile field level security involving Activity, Task, Event object as they are related to each other in Salesforce.

    For example:
    If we do a retrieve for Activity, Task, Event object along with profile. In the profile metadata it would specify this:
    <fieldPermissions>
    <editable>true</editable>
    <field>Task.FieldX__c</field>
    <readable>true</readable>
    </fieldPermissions>

    However, if there were to be a mistake in the profile metadata and we commit them in version control it is detected as a 'new item' in Compare and Deploy

    <fieldPermissions>
    <editable>true</editable>
    <field>Activity.FieldX__c</field>
    <readable>true</readable>
    </fieldPermissions>

    When we select this new changes and…

  15. Search on comparison doesn't search though object child items

    When searching on the comparison results screen the child items of an object are not part the search unless you expand the object.

    If you expand and then collapse the object tree child items do then appear in the filter search. It appears to be just on initial loading that it doesn't work.

  16. Ability to Template Scratch Org Settings

    It would be great if it was possible to template the scratch org creation screen.

    We have a lot of managed packages that need to be installed and having to enter the ID and Key every time is very time consuming.

  17. comparison between 3 or more ORGs

    i would like to see in a future update about comparing 3 or more Orgs to possibly fine tune checks between production, and multiple sandboxes to make sure everything looks as needed to verify no sandboxes are overlooked for refreshes if needed.

  18. Warn if source version is greater than the version of the target org.

    Often, salesforce will deploy the latest API version to sandbox orgs before production orgs. Therefore it's easy to use API version 55 in your sandbox and then get a failure message when you try to deploy it to your production org which is at version 54. Unfortunately, you have to start to validate your deploy before you get this message. This could be a pre-deployment issue that you can notified right away.

  20. Ability to accept/disregard repo cleaner changes

    I would like the repo cleaner to work more like the problem analyser, offering a chance to accept or disregard the suggestions before executing it.

    Currently Repo Cleaner can only be enabled/disabled only at team level settings, thereby forcing the setting team-wide, which effectively rolls onto all the projects/repos using Gearset for deployments.

    I have come across a situation where I would not like to alter the repo with changes any more than what I have actually changed, but since its a team-wide setting the repo cleaner was getting triggered in and bringing in more changes to my repo than…
