  1. Allow reauthorization of git/Bitbucket tokens used by CI jobs

    Currently, if the OAuth tokens used for a Bitbucket integration are refreshed, any existing CI job will not adopt the newly authorized token. In fact, there is no way to even edit the job to use the new credentials; the job must be completely deleted and created anew.

    However, in the case of Salesforce OAuth tokens, Gearset already has a Reauthorize button, along with facilities for re-associating the new credentials with saved orgs and saved CI jobs. Please enable similar reauthorization mecahnics and credential saving for other Oauth integrations, especially Bitbucket Server, so that CI jobs will not need to…

  2. 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.

  3. Metdata Optimization / CleanUp Analysis

    A very good feature for metadata management tool like gearset will be an helper which allow to identify metadata not used or not properly configured.
    For example this concurent have this feature : https://www.metazoa.com/snapshot-use-cases-org-cleanup-and-optimization/

  4. Inline Editing of metadata

    Inline Editing of metadata
    In order to make our deployment successful we had to download the package, modify the version numbers on the flow definitions, and then compare the local package to the target org. It would be very helpful if we can edit the metadata XML in the UI so we can fix the version numbers.

  5. Allow the use of cached metadata during comparisons

    Over the past 2 days we ran multiple comparisons between salesforce orgs. Nothing was changed in the target org but some fixes were applied to the source org in order to make the deployment successful. A lot of time would be saved if we had the option to compare the source org to a cached copy of the target org. In this case, the source org was finishing very fast, especially when we used the local file comparison.

  6. Display a custom name in Salesforce when deploying from Gearset

    When we deploy a change to one of our Salesforce orgs using gearset, the name that is displayed in the "Deployment Status" in Salesforce is an ID. It would be helpful to display the name that we entered in Gearset instead of the ID so that we can easily identify the changes when looking at them in Salesforce

  7. Eliminate unnecessary XML reformatting in git

    Currently, when gearset deploys XML to git, it seems to run it through a reformatter, which creates superfluous changes in git. These changes cause extremely large deltas, which are hard to read, increase the difficulty of merges and the likelihood of conflicts, and make working with any other metadata tooling (like SFDX) difficult.

    For example, here is part of a delta gearset commited for a profile.xml:
    diff --git a/force-app/main/default/profiles/Commissions.profile-meta.xml b/force-app/main/default/profiles/Commissions.profile-meta.xml
    index 8b11e6b7..3d640a50 100644

  8. Include a feature to connect between SonarQube and Gearset

    I really love using Gearset. It would be great if we have a plugin in there to integrate Gearset and SonarQube to display Static Code Analysis and Test Coverage in Sonar. I had tried this through CircleCI and it requires lot of configuration and we need write code to create and maintain the connection.
    Whenever there is an update to the GIT Master it has to Initialize the Sonar Scanner and it'll run some tests and display results in SonarQube.
    Thanks!

  9. Autodeploy on git branch a successfully manual deployment on org

    When a developper deploy a new feature on a sandbox it will be perfect if the deployment can be auto deploy on a branch git (and copy the deployement note, etc).

    Today I use a CI job backup on the sandbox but we lost the deployment comment + the updates granulartity.

    We could use also the "Clone Button" on the result deployment page but it's lost time to relaunch the comparison and the different step etc while we want exactly replicate the deployment.

  10. When CI jobs fail with "admin operation already in progress", retry the CI job automatically

    I was informed in my slack integration today that my CI job failed with an error message of UNKNOWN_EXCEPTION: admin operation already in progress See https://app.gearset.com/failed...

    I would like to see Gearset automatically identify this type of error as something different than a metadata error and then retry that CI job 3 times over the next 90 minutes (for example). It would be fine for it to stop after those 3 successive failures.

  12. Provide the ability to run static code analysis on all commits to the repo

    We'd like the ability to run static code analysis on all commits to a repo, regardless of the branch name. This would allow us to catch code quality issues early and up front, regardless of the branching model we use.

    Example: https://www.atlassian.com/git/tutorials/comparing-workflows/gitflow-workflow (development is done in feature-* branches, so there's no one branch we can configure a CI job on)

  13. Allow complex filters and child relationships on filters for data loading

    Allow complex filters and child relationships on filters for data loading. For example, filter the Account to only load if the Owner is an Active user in the system.

  14. 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…

  15. Gearset to do Sanbox Refresh by copying metadata and data from production

    Quite often an Environment needs to be refreshed, but every time it happens all the integration breaks as OrgId changes. Gearset can move metadata and data, which when made together can be a solution for sandbox refresh. Full copy sandbox sometimes takes days, GS will be able to it quite quickly.

  16. Allow run tests not only by specific name but by regex

    We have a lot of tests and it takes about 2 hours to run them all. But we also have some small services almost completely isolated and which have a specific test class name convention. Currently, we're using ant to specify which exactly we want to run on these services build, so we don't have to wait for 2 hours to deploy a small fix to an isolated service.

  17. Unscramble order of <excludeButtons> tags in Layout metadata

    Page Layouts use the <excludeButtons> element to indicate the presence or absence of standard buttons on a layout.

    But this element appears in an arbitrary order when retrieved. Unlike other metadata which gets canonicalized by sorting alphabetically.

    Gearset could sort these elements to avoid the random order causing random diffs to appear in metadata comparisons when in reality there is no difference.

  19. Preserve Auto-number field values

    Staging environments typically exist with integrations with other systems that have references to auto-number fields
    Data deployment re-evaluates auto-number fields instead of keeping the values of the source.

    If data deployment jobs could automate the following it would probably work
    1. changing the type of the auto-number field to text in the target org
    2. potentially removing apex references to the field
    3. deploying the data
    4. rolling back metadata modifications in steps 1 and 2

  20. Email notification selection: none, success, failed deployemnts

    In account settings allow me to choose what kind of notifications I want to receive to my email.
    [ ] Send me success deployments notifications
    [ ] Send me failed deployments notification

    No selection means do not send any notifications.

    Why? With many deployments my email is bombarded with notifications. Last two weeks 65 emails which I do not read as I see status on screen. Therefore I want to turn off those notifications.
