  1. Searching for work item should allow for searching by ticket #

    When searching for work items to associate to a deployment, user should be able to enter ticket IDs rather then key words from the Azure DevOps ticket title. This will make it easier to search larger backlogs.

  2. Excluding Record Type Problem Analyzer Should Behave the Same Across Metadata (Layout Permissions, Custom Object Permissions)

    In the situation where a repository is the source and an org is the target, there may be a situation where a record type doesn't exist in the repository but references in the layout permissions and custom object permissions do still exist.

    Currently, the problem analyzer will catch the custom object permissions and ask you to remove the references to the record type that doesn't exist in the target.

    However, it doesn't catch the layout permissions and the deployment could fail with an invalid reference.

    In the absence of the record type in the repository, the "Problem Analyzer for excluding…

  3. Schedule multiple gearset deployments

    Have the ability to schedule metadata deployments along with data deployments. As of now, you must deploy all metadata then move into data deployments. It would be great to schedule these items in some sort of task flow.

  4. Account owner should be able to delete templates created by others

    If a team member is removed from Gearset team, any template or previous activity can not be removed by anyone else. Leaving some clutter behind. It would be good to have the Owner of the Gearset account/team to have a super admin level access to all templates/data created by other team members so clean up could be managed....

  5. Provide ordering for metadata elements when committing to version control

    When metadata is retrieved from Salesforce the order of child nodes is not guaranteed and results in false-positive changes when committing to version control. Usually this will be something simple like workflow actions/criteria appearing out-of-order which can be compared manually. However, recently we've noticed entire profiles being committed with every permissions element out-of-order, resulting in a change set with ~20k lines where the actual change is impossible to visualize.

    Gearset should provide a feature to 'order' child XML elements alphabetically by name in order to provide consistent commits to version control and eliminate false-positives.

  6. Exclude specific Classes from Scheduled Unit Tests

    Some Testclasses only run successfully, when the Org is connected to a Backend Application. Usually sandboxes for Development are not connected to the Backend. These are the Orgs, that we need to watch. It would be useful to exclude specific Classes on specified Environments from being tested in scheduled Unit Tests.

  7. Improve Problem Analyzers for Deployments from Production Orgs into Sandboxes

    Sandboxes don't contain certain objects and permissions in comparison to Production and they can't be added. I find this causes issues in our CI jobs that are deploying production orgs into sandboxes unless you add a lot of customization to filters.

    Since filters on a CI job don't get reflected across other CI jobs (see: https://gearset.uservoice.com/forums/283474-help-us-improve-gearset/suggestions/38727925-separate-filters-for-ci-jobs-to-reflect-filter-edi) this can be a major pain to keep them in sync and keep up to date if someone activates a features in production (ex. DevHub - which creates ScratchOrg custom object that doesn't exist in sandboxes).

    Currently, we have the below noted as…

  8. Options to pick only selected custom labels metadata for salesforce.

    Since the custom labels metadata can’t be picked individually, the Gearset compare and validate process would pull in all custom label changes. This would be a concern if we want to withhold any particular custom labels from being pushed to higher environment.

  9. Allow setting the default testing method for deployments

    I want to enforce that any deployment into a UAT sandbox runs all the tests. The standard Default option runs no tests since it's a sandbox. I have to manually choose the "Run Only my Tests" Option every time I deploy to that sandbox. I would like to be able to have that option selected by default

  10. Add new connection ends in loop

    When I add a new connection via choosing "Salesforce authentication", I need to enter the username. I click on "Authorize". Instead of a redirect to the Salesforce login screen, I see a blank page with a gearset spinner logo. But this screen takes hours and will not redirect. I'm using Firefox and the Org is a sandbox (sandbox is also selected)

  11. swapping source and target after compare

    I was doing compare between our 2 orgs (Source: UAT, Target: DEVSTG) and I realized that I got the order wrong. Should be (Source: DEVSTG, Target: UAT). But the compare has already completed.

    I wish there is a way to just flip (swap) the source and target without re-comparing as it takes some time comparing between orgs.

  12. Update package.xml with destructive changes which helps CI jobs

    When I commit components to bitbucket brach if I have 5 new components and 5 deleted components. then Gearset is updating package.xml in the src folder with only 5 components which are to be created but destructive changes are tracked no where. Then if we deploy from this branch changes to Sandbox using CI job which has 'Filter metadata changes using package.xml' checked, then the deleted components will not be deployed. It is good if Gearset give a feature to track destructive changes and deploy using CI job.

  15. like in autorabbit ability to chose incremental build in CI

    Ability to only deploy the difference between the last 2 commits (incremental build) will dramatically reduce the time to run a CI job

  16. Add a Description field in the General Settings for Automation like Continuous Integration.

    We LOVE Gearset. I just took over when an employee on my team moved to a different team. I was looking over the existing Monitoring jobs and had to ask why some of them were setup. They were similar with the exception of when they run, for example. It would be helpful to have a Description field in the General settings section so when someone creates these jobs, they can give a brief description of their intent and purpose. Thanks.

  17. Add support for "ServiceCrew" and "ServiceCrewMember"

    These two objects are part of the FSL package for Salesforce. Right now, when we do a compare between two orgs, no results with be shown.

  18. While configuring a data deployment, allow save after selecting objects and fields

    There's no opportunity to save the data deployment settings after selecting objects and fields, and this can be quite time consuming, so if the job fails due to auth or other issues, right now, this requires the user to start over, and re-select objects and fields.

  20. More custom monitoring delays

    It would be brilliant to be able to choose the days of a week your monitor script runs on so I don't have to deploy changes every single morning and could instead do once a week
