  1. Display Permission Set changes as one entry

    When working with Permission Set changes, it sometimes would be useful to see them grouped by Permission Set instead of being disaggregated by field. For example, we are migrating from using Profiles to Permission sets to grant all access. Currently, if we make changes to many (>100) fields in two different Permission Sets, we have to review many (>100) entries. Also, grouping by permission set would allow us to deploy changes to one Permission Set while ignoring the other.

  2. Limit Connections creation

    Currently there is no feature to prevent users in creating their own connections within Gearset.

    We need users to follow the permission that was setup on the shared connection. We have only 2 users that have the approval to deploy code from a sandbox to production. As they can set up their own connections then this bypasses our restriction

    Having a permission only available to the Enterprise user or a user approved to create connections and delegate access would prevent the bypass of access permissions

  3. Last Modified in Metadata Filter

    It would be great if I could set a "last modified" filter when setting which metadata to pull. Rather than go to Apex Classes, wait for the list to refresh, then cherry-pick them, it would be great to simply compare Apex classes modified today, or in the last 30 days, or in the last hour, etc.

  4. Allow custom manipulations to data during a data deployment

    Export the selected data source in a CSV file before deploying, in order to allow custom manipulation. Then allow the import of that CSV to destination - functioning like a more sophisticated Data loader.

  5. To be able to filter within a dropdown

    https://ej2.syncfusion.com/vue/documentation/drop-down-list/filtering/
    Much like the above, when searching through many fields it can be tedious

  6. Add Analyzer to Warn/Remove Named Credentials with Passwords

    Currently, attempting to deploy a named credential will fail as a "password is required for the specified authentication protocol".

    This can mean manual work if you have a lot of CI deployment jobs to sandboxes or annoyance if you expected to be able to deploy it.

    It'd be great if an analyzer existed that would alert/warn the user about it going to fail and unable to be deployed (suggest removing it from the package)

  7. Bash scripting

    Add support for bash scripting. This is one of the most powerful features of Jenkins and something that would make a huge difference in Gearset.

  8. Individual Assignment ruleEntry

    Please Allow us to Deploy individual Assignment ruleEntry rather than the whole file/set, similar to components in other objects, sharing rules.

  9. Problem Analyzers don't evaluate changes made from other Problem Analzyers

    Even though this example has an easy workaround, it does seem like a scenario which could present issues in other deployments.

    In the scenario where a standard application that doesn't exist in the target (ex. Sandboxes and LightningInstrumentation) is included in a deployment (along with its permissions), there's 2 problem analyzers that come into play


    1. "Remove standard application additions/deletions from deployment"


    2. "Remove items which reference the listed components which are not available in the target"


    When both metadata types are selected (application and permission) only #1 is flagged. This means Gearset removes the standardApplication, but leaves the references to the…

  10. Select a set of data deployment templates and run them in order

    Ability to build sequence of data load (choose a list of data load templates and have to possibility to run them automatically in sequence). The sequence can be changed.

  11. More granular permission settings for sub groups of a large team

    Giving team owners/leaders the ability to define sub groups of team members and control their ability to deploy to certain environments.
    For example not being able to connect to/make deployments to 'production' orgs.

  12. Retain source control branch selection when cancelling a comparison

    If you click "compare now" and then click "cancel" before it finishes, the "compare metadata" screen retains your selection for orgs, but does not retain the branch selection for source control.

    It defaults to the first branch by alphabetical order versus what I selected before I cancelled. This can cause confusion for users who do not notice.

  14. Restore/export certain fields on objects

    We (the user) would like to be able to restore data, but only select certain fields to be restored.

    Usecase:
    A business user triggers some automation that modifies a field or specific fields on a large number of records that should not have been modified. In the meantime, other fields may have been modified that were correctly modified. We would want to restore a set of records from a specific backup, but only the specific fields that should not have been modified.

  16. Spacing in formulas

    This was marked as completed in https://gearset.uservoice.com/forums/283474-help-us-improve-gearset/suggestions/34690018-preserve-spacing-in-formulas but seems to be broken again. Formulas or criteria in WF are deployed without carriage returns, which makes formulas very messy to work with.

  17. Ability to choose whether or not to respect the forceignore file

    Would like a checkbox on the comparison screen that allows me to choose whether or not the comparison will respect the contents of the forceignore file. (Similar to the checkbox allowing you to choose whether or not the comparison should use the package.xml file).

    Our usage of Gearset does not align with our usage of the forceignore file for automated deployments. In fact, we often use Gearset to manually compare and/or deploy items that we specifically ignore for automated deployments.

    Summary of problem this new feature has introduced:
    We use gearset for org -> git deployments, and for git ->…

  18. Added an 'Or' function to the Filter Options

    Right now there is only an 'And' filter when configuring Fields on the same object. It would make this much more powerful of a tool if we were able to chose between 'And' & 'Or'.

  19. Change Data Capture

    When installing a Integration Platform you have to enable the Change Data Capture in order for the platform to receive notifications on changes. At the moment updates under Setup/Integrations/Change Data Capture can not be deployed by Gearset :-(.

  20. Ability to lockdown access to delete Deployment history

    It'd be nice if there was a way for admins to restrict access for devs/other users when it comes to deleting items from deployment history. The use case here is when a sprint is done and we're promoting changes from QA to UAT, it'd be nice to select all the sprint packages and combine them from deployment history so a user doesn't have to go through each change at a time. Providing full access to everyone opens the possibility for them to delete a package that should've been bundled with other packages on the promotion to UAT.
