  1. Support user record migration from production to sandbox or scratch orgs

    New users are often created in the production org that need to be monitored and brought back to sandboxes as well. It would be great if the data deployment tool could support moving user records from prod to sandboxes or scratch orgs.

  2. push new profile FLS entries into the profile file in alphabetical order

    When picking up new FLS entries, by default these are added at the bottom of the list of FLS.

    This causes issues when also having save jobs picking up changes, as this can result in duplicate FLS being added to a branch.

    Please update code structuring, so new FLS is added in the correct place in the MD files.

  3. Add batch size option to data deployment

    It would be great to be able to pick the batch size used when doing data deployments.

    We have to work with some orgs using poorly performing managed packages that are blowing up due to CPU limits.

    We don't have many option, so being able to reduce the batch size, and hence the CPU load would be really useful.

  4. Approval requests for CI deployments

    It would be great if there is an automated approval process to deploy the code to higher environments. If there is a button "Submit for approval", and an email sent out to approver. that we can setup. once approved, a CI job need to run and deploy the changes to next environment.

  5. Possibility to deploy to another sandboxe when a ci job passed

    When configuring a CI job, we need an option to set a deployment to another sandboxe when the deployment or test classes run successfully in the current CI Job.
    Ex: when a push to a branch on VCS triggers a CI job to deploy to a sandboxe like QA (with test classes run), we also have the possibility to set an auto deployment to staging sanboxe when the the job on QA passed successfully.

  6. Combine multiple daily monitoring results into a single deployment

    If you want to deploy the differences of an org on a weekly basis, it would be a great option to take the monitoring results of the last 7 days into a single deployment.
    Especially in huge orgs, where comparism takes 30 minutes time to show up, this would ease deployment pretty much.

  7. Make it easier to select all custom field translations for deployment

    Right now if you want to select translations for certain custom fields, it is necessary to expand the sub-components for each field and select the translation. The second option is to go to the custom object and expand the sub-components in order to check translations which will include all the custom field translations for this object.
    It would be helpful to get a way to select the translations for specific custom fields in the deployment.

  8. Don't allow duplicate fields in comparison.

    If I have a field with name example category. Somehow the same field has been added to the object xml file it needs to throw an error at the time of comparison.

  9. Static Code Analysis for JavaScript Components

    It would be great if Gearset could run static code analysis on JavaScript as well as Apex when deploying Lightning Components.

  10. Introduce 'ListView' as an option in 'Metadata filter' tab

    When navigating to the 'Metadata filter' tab to select filters, there are currently 122 options, however 'List View' is not one of them.
    When navigating 'Metadata Types & Components' in Workbench, 'ListView' is described independently, and I have used it previously when deploying via ANT. Therefore I would imagine there is a way to identify List Views independently of 'Custom Objects'.
    This would be a huge help with a Production monitoring job, as I do not mind if List Views are updated by certain users in Production, but currently they are flagged as differences. Basically, I want to ignore them…

  11. Create a way to apply a regex to all currently selected metadata types when building a filter

    The regex support you currently have doesn't really allow for complex (multi-match) regex matching, which is probably ok. (this would be something like grep -e 'this' -e 'that')

    If I select, say 116 of the 124 metadata types identified, and then have to apply a regex pattern to each one, it gets pretty tedious. Click-paste-apply 116 times, and then 116 again for the other half of the complex match. I'd write a tool to automate configuring a filter in gearset. :)

    If I "select all" then deselect the 8 types i don't want, and THEN apply a regex to all…

  12. Allow sfdx project files for scratch org creation

    When creating a scratch org, allow us to select/configure a sfdx-project.json. This will allow for more complicated sfdx project to be deployed, i.e. multiple project folders, namespaces, ... etc.

  13. Allow record id as the first criteria for matching lookup fields

    When deploying data records from production to sandbox, the default matching criteria for the owner field will not typically work...

    Gearset currently matches on email and profile, but the email addresses for users get modified in sandboxes. So, no match is found for users other than the one who created the sandbox.

    It would be great if the first check was: does the user record id match. If not, use email + profile, if not, use the current user.

  14. CI Duplicate Job should allow creation of a Validate Only from a "deploy" CI job

    This would be handy:

    If you have a CI job (deploy type) with various configuration (metadata filter, notification, etc) and you want to Duplicate that job, you can't duplicate it to a Validation-Only job. You have to re-enter everything.

  15. Ability to run a Validation only CI job on a pull request - this will make pull request ready for deployment without error

    1. Developer creates a pull request to a branch
    2. CI job validates the pull request and notify in case of errors
    3. Developer corrects errors - CI job again validates the pull request and this time it is fine
    4.Release manager merges the pull request to the branch specific to an org and CI job deploys without error.

  16. Compare and Deploy Attachments and Files

    Please add the ability to use the "Compare and Deploy" for Attachments and Files. The ability to migrate PDFs, image files, word docs, and excel spreadsheets would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!

  18. Allow filtering by Deployment Stage/Metadata Subset during comparison

    This Gearset article describes some very logical phases for performing a large deployment:
    https://docs.gearset.com/metadata-deployment-guides/splitting-a-complex-deployment-into-stages

    It would be nice if there were built-in comparisons to show each subset of metadata.

    For example if you were on phase 1 of the deployment you could filter your comparison to just "Data Tier" and Gearset would pre-filter the relevant metadata.

  19. Allow for the masking of data during a Data Deployment

    During a data deployment it should be possible to mask the data in specific fields. For example, if I were importing Account and Contact data from production into a sandbox I would want to be able to mask email address so that we can't erroneously send actual customers emails while we're testing

  20. Add functionality to select the changes in the component for the deployment.

    I think it will be very helpful to have a possibility to deploy only some selected changes in the modified component.
