  1. Need to be made aware and/or given the opportunity to view the totality of the changes prior to deployment

    Heres what happened, we deployed the Metadata AND a ChatBot. As part of our deployment, we manually updated the metadatas to contain PROD relavent info (instead of ACC info that was pushed from ACC Branch)

    I also discovered that there were duplicate utterances in the Chatbot which we had to remove via manual DML deletes to ensure that the Data Model was built properly.

    Then, we wanted to deploy just a Field change, and did so by merging a PR containt just the Field Change into main in Azure. This, obviously, triggered a deployment and in that deployment, the metadata…

  2. Allow download of XML files from the comparisons page

    In some instances, we have to use the Metadata API to download XML files for analysis. However, the Metadata API is a pain to use. Even Salesforce recognizes this and suggests using a migration tool like Gearset to extract these: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.246.0.api_meta.meta/api_meta/file_based.htm

    Since Gearset retrieves these files during comparison, it would be great if there was an option to download them to a zip file directly.

    Note: There is already a "Download Package" feature on the deployment page. However, we obviously can't add items to this page if there is no change between the orgs. So, if a similar feature were…

  3. Ability to use include/exclude patterns for Apex tests

    Now we can only have patterns to match test classes to include.
    Would love to have ability to use include/exclude patterns (like for comparisons).
    We have many tests which we don't want to execute within CI jobs. These could be from (stable) 3rd party libraries like FFLib.

  4. Allow automatic tagging of release commits

    I've found it very useful to be able to quickly identify release merge commits from our VCS. Being able to search for a tag in our VCS would allow us to easily compare one version to another without having to use something like git bisect. I'd like the option to automatically tag a commit (you could probably use the release name) would be helpful.

  5. Ability to download/restore data in bulk

    We deleted 40 000 records, now we want to download data from the backup for all of them. I can filter them, select for which I want to get it and download, the challenge is, that only 500 records are loaded by default and I can load more in a batch of 500. A lot of clicking to see all of them.

  6. Add the ability to back up Salesforce Change sets

    While we use Gearset for our change sets, we have time where a 3rd party developer or a new admin uses standard Salesforce Change sets. We have had an incident where Hyperforce wiped out all of our change sets in all sandboxes, it would beneficial to add the ability to the backup to back up change sets

  7. allow the option to include destructive changes for data deployments

    allow data deployments to have an option where records existing on the target org but not in the source org are deleted. This will in effect allow a full sync between source and target orgs without any manual intervention to clean up data.

  8. Add option to "run tests if X is present" on CI jobs

    At the moment Gearset only offers an "all or nothing" option ("run all tests"), which is safer but completely ruins minor and cosmetic deployments (because it then takes half an hour to deploy even the smallest, inconsequent change like a Layout change) or "apex or nothing" option ("Default") which does allow for minor deployments to go through.. but also anything that's not Apex, which is dangerous because what if I'm deploying other automations like Flows? these changes would go un-tested.

    At the very least an option for "run all tests if Apex OR Flow is present" sounds mandatory. But ideally…

  9. Enforce Promotion Approval Rules

    The current UI shows a green checkbox and allows you to attempt to promote changes between environments even if the merge request is unable to be approved. Looks like it in Gitlab there is an 'approved' attribute that may be able to be used.

    Alternatively, can have some basic rules but would like it called out its not ready to Promote in the Gearset UI.

  10. Allow switching authentication provider (SSO)

    I made the mistake of using the wrong SSO provider (Salesforce) on the main user account that owns all the pipelines, CI jobs, credentials, orgs, etc and now I'm stuck with it with no decent way of changing to Google, my preferred provider. Please create an easy way to switch SSO providers.

  11. Pipeline PR User interface Details

    Currently we can see Jira ticket status when we look at PRs in the pipeline UI it would be phenomenal if we could include additional Jira fields to be seen from Pipeline UI such as Summary or fixversion

  12. Improve Deployment Information in Notifications

    I've tried both Email and Teams integrations and the actual information in the message (or attached PDF for Email) is lacking, with only great piece being the branch name.

    An option to get advanced details that could provide some of the below (but not limited to):
    - Actual Links - Atleast with Gitlab Self-Managed, we just get a text-based message referencing a merge request.
    - Commits / Original MR - For those deployed via a Pipeline, getting the original MR (our pipeline is dev org > QA > UAT > Staging > Production, with the Dev Org > QA being…

  13. Export Deployment History Additional Information

    It would be great if the Deployment History was able to provide details from Source Control. Specifically, list of people who approved tickets, branch names, commit IDs, etc.

  14. Better Automated Pipeline MRs

    The MRs that get opened for pushing the same work through pipeline aren't very helpful. Would love to link back to the original MR which would have more of the "approvals". Right now we end up having to re-approve everything like its from scratch. Insight and auditability (maybe even bringing up who approved the original MR/etc would be great)

  15. Trigger Gitlab Pipeline Faster

    When opening a MR in Gitlab, the Gearset pipeline queues the Validation very quickly. However, in Gitlab, there is no pending Pipeline until Salesforce starts the validation. Sometimes this can be a lengthy period of time with no visibility inside of Gitlab.

    Would be nice to trigger that immediately so approvers can see that it is queued, not just no pipeline job has been executed yet.

  16. Granular Permissions

    Most of our users don't need to be doing any configuration outside of connecting their Dev Sandbox. Prefer to have more granular permissions to lock down features to smaller groups of users.

  17. Show all Github requirements to merge in the Gearset pull request view.

    We have required approvals enabled on PRs in Github. Currently when viewing a Pull Request in the Gearset Pipelines view, it does not show that a PR is blocked from being merged because at least one code review approval is needed in Github. This leads to accidentally attempting to "promote" in Gearset and then the Pull Request merge fails. We would like to see these (and any other Github requirements) showing up in Gearset so we are informed which PRs are approved and ready to promote.

  18. Indicate from Gearset if a deployment is eligible to use Quick Deploy

    I would like to be able to see from Gearset if a deployment is able to utilize Quick Deploy. This would be particularly useful for releases to production as we release after hours and our unit tests can take many hours to run. Knowing that Gearset will use Quick Deploy will increase our confidence with our release and reduce mental load knowing that the deployment will be much more likely to succeed.

  19. Gearset VS Code Extension

    My development team spend their time in VS Code where they can see all their Git information etc. It would be great to have a Gearset plugin to stop them having to switch windows and allow them to have information at their fingertips. This could also encourage more developer use of Gearset.
    May display:
    - Build status
    - Static code analysis issues
    - View of pipeline

  20. Include Pull Request title in the notification

    Hello GS team,

    Currently, the notifications from the pull request validations only include the PR number, I would like to request if it's possible to include the PR title.

    Current Sample: [Gearset] CI validation job Validation job for PR #11111 failed

    With the title in the subject of the notification, we can FW the results to the right teams automatically.

    Thank you!
