  1. Provide the option to ignore whitespace differences in Apex

    It would be great to have more control over the diff process - particularly to be able to ignore whitespace changes.

    If I've made an actual function change to a class, and also auto-indented it, then it would be a lot easier to see the important change if I could hide the whitespace-only changes.

    Having the ability to suppress whitespace-only changes on the list of changed objects would be really useful, too.

      Thanks for the suggestion.

      We have plans to improve the way the diff viewer handles changes and whitespace in the future, though it’s not currently under development.

      Thanks,
      Jason.

    • Support deleting comparison data

      Having the comparison history is a great feature, but it would be very beneficial to be able to delete any data in the system, especially when working with a trial account. Part of testing could include working with test environments that you don't want to persist after going live. Also, peace of mind when ending the trial that your data has been removed.

      • Rollback deployments made by CI jobs

        Manual deployments and change monitoring jobs can be rolled back. Add the same function to CI jobs in case it accidentally deploys something unwanted

        • Add a `Weekly` cadence to the test runner

          I need to run my own tests (ie no namespace) daily as those should never fail and if they do I need to know

          For namespace tests, I just need to run them weekly, primarily to reset the "invalid" flag on apex classes that can be tripped by trivial changes. I know some will fail as we have some huge apps installed and my understanding is that it's normal for dome of those managed tests to fail.

          So I would only want to run them weekly to reduce the noise from the daily failure email. Just run those on Saturday.

          • Provide individual class code coverage statistics

            Running tests displays overall org code coverage... it would be cool if you could provide individual class code coverage statistics as well, so we could get a good idea of what classes / triggers need attention

            • Allow source metadata to be customised prior to deployment

              In order to support a development pipeline (e.g. Dev Environment -> Staging Environment -> Production) allow Metadata from the source Org to be modified before deployment to the target Org.

              e.g. I have a RemoteSiteSetting in source that points at https://dev.example.com and in my staging environment I need this to point to https://stg.example.com

                Thanks for the suggestion Paul.

                It’s something we should be able to do, but we need to do a little bit of investigation first to work out exactly how this feature should look and what the functionality would be.

                Thanks,
                Jason.

                • Adding Custom destructive

                  ANT is unable to change the type on an EmailTemplate from HTML to CUSTOM. To solve that we need to add the EmailTemplate first to the destructive package to have it removed and then add it again with the package.xml
                  Since this file is not deleted but just changed. It doesn't show up in the deleted items tab.

                  We should add an option to the "Selected Items"/"Changed Items" list to opt-in for adding that to the destructive.

                  • Enhance XML meta data comparison to ignore changes in XML order

                    In org monitoring we frequently get notification about changes an the only thing is a change to the order of the XML elements returned.
                    The XML is virtually the same but the order of elements returned changed from one day to the other.

                    It makes differentiating "real" changes from those false positives time-consuming.

                    It would be great if those kind of changes could be ignored or if there was an option to configure the XML comparison behavior for each monitoring job.

                        I would like to get some information from the problem analyzer after a CI Job completes as it seems like if it detects a problem during the job it skips deploying some of the components, like user permissions.

                          • Ability to search Deployment History for specific metadata

                            On the "Deployment History" tab, the filter dialog filters on the visible friendly name and items like that. What I would like to do is enter a specific metadata name and have the list filter down to deployments where that specific metadata name was a part of the deployment. This would be useful when getting the question, "when was xyz last deployed?"

                            • 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.

                                      • Ability to sort on the Change monitoring overview Page

                                        From the Change monitoring overview page it would be helpful to sort by the various "Headings" currently they are not sortable at all.

                                        • See Continuous Integration Deployments in the Deployment History tab

                                          List deployments resulting from a CI job on the Deployment History tab along with manual deployments.

                                          We currently deploy metadata using both manual and CI jobs and it would be convenient to see all deployments in the same list (for debugging, reporting, monitoring).
