  1. Force-deploy Flow translations with no difference

    At the root of this, the main problem is that if you create a new flow version through the SFDC flow editor interface, the flow will have a new version of the flow translations based on the previous translations.

    But if you DEPLOY a flow, the new flow version is created WITHOUT flow translations at all.

    This would be fine, if gearset would allow us to reliably deploy the flow WITH flow translations, even if the flow translations had "no changes". (Gearset does not allow us to deploy items with no change, and sometimes doesn't even show them in the…

    "invalid or null picklist values" is thrown and i have too many picklists to figure out which one is the issue. Please provide speicific fields that are causing errors.

  3. Show JIRA Title when selecting tickets to post to

    As a release manager, when I go to select the JIRA tickets to associate to, I need to be able to see not just the ticket number, but also the Title to allow me to select the correct tickets without having to guess or consult another resource or use trial and error.

    Currently there looks like this idea was implemented in Pipelines, but that interface is somewhat broken, and typing in the full number does not result in the ticket showing up, could use some love, but is the right idea for providing context.

  4. Add Flow Definition to Disable Rules for Data Deploy

    With the deprecation of Worfklow Rules, I'd love to have the disable Rules include the active Flow Definitions

  5. Show "All" Different Items

    Instead of a tab showing 'All Items', even items that are the same, maybe show a tab of All Different Items, which would show New, Deleted, and Changed in a single view without having to sift through the 'All Items' for these.

  6. add an option to bypass all automation (flows/workflows/process builders) during data deployments

    The Salesforce Import Wizard has an option to not trigger any automation during data jobs. It would be fantastic if Gearset provided such an option.

    This would include:
    - Workflows
    - Process builders
    - Flows

    I know this feature already exists for validation rules and triggers.

  7. Enforce each deployment to have a Jira issue in a specific status in order to be able to deploy.

    As a gate-keep; to be able to deploy anything to production (or any other named environment), the associated Jira ticket must be in a pre-select status.

    For example, the Jira ticket's status must be in "Ready for Deployment" to allow an end-user to deploy.

  8. Add option to load missing dependeces only.

    Example:
    When I already selected metadata filter with many items, downloaded metadata, compared, checked, and clicked deploy then I am getting an error that some dependency is missing but it is metadata type that wasn't selected previously.

    Currently:
    I need to click refresh comparison select additional metadata types and reload all metadata from both sandboxes. It is very time and resource consuming with big packages.

    As a solution:
    I want to have the possibility to click a button and select on the metadata list only those that I want to add to the current package and only those should be…

  9. API to export backup to S3 for data warehousing/datalake

    A lot of time we would like to have data out of SF not just for backup purposes but for data analytical purposes as well. Ownbackup currently has this functionality via APIs.

    https://ownbackup-kb.magentrixcloud.com/articles/knowledgebase/Using-the-OwnBackup-API-5-6-2020

    If gearset has this, it would help us move to GS for all our SF problesms

  10. Automatic Validation of Pull request for AWS code commit

    Gearset does not support PR validation for AWS code commit. We are cloud-native and use AWS extensively, thus missing out on most important feature of gearset. If you can support it it will be amazing and lifesaver for us.

  11. Add or ignore parts of XML after the comparison to ignore other users changes

    If there are multiple users making changing the metadata in Salesforce and when one has to deploy their changes, it is not possible to pick the changes that are specific to one person, For this we have to go to VS code and use git patch mode to add only the necessary changes for a specific user. If we have an option to edit the xml after the comparision and pick only necessary pieces and deploy it to next org will save time and also switching between multiple orgs. Currently the comparison editor is read only mode.

  12. Archiving and restore process

    Data archiving for storing records that can be easily accessed when marked as archived at an off-premise location. A backup and restore would be overkill when there is a need to store only partial records or a combination of fields from records in different objects. Restoring to a new object that does not interfere with existing objects would be ideal.

  13. Allow users to specify when to apply Environment Variables

    A good feature would be to have some setting that lets you declare when you should apply environment variables. Since right now it is applied automatically during manual deployments and CI deployments. Perhaps in the wizard when you configure deployments there should be some option there to declare if environment variables should be applied or not?

    We have some Custom Metadata and Custom Settings that always need to be updated post-refresh based on the new sandbox instances and it would be useful to use environment variables to set these values and deploy them one-time without them being deployed in every…

  14. Delegate Access by Comparison

    Provide an additional delegate access option: be able to grant this at a comparison level to a user vs at the org level (situation is predominately experienced for Production comparisons/deployments). Granting access at an org level gives too much access (CI jobs, etc) for some users so it would be ideal to have a narrower scope.

  15. See when a commit validation was deployed or not (For CI validation Jobs)

    When you go to the validation only CI jobs section within the Continues Integration part we usually have a CI job targeting a prod environment, you can see all validations succeeded and the commit attached to such validation, each CI job run contains 3 options:
    View comparison
    View Summary
    Deploy

    Then if the validation passed and the code indeed was merged from the feature branch to the master branch (Which would have triggered the actual CI job run), how would you be able to identify wether a merged pull request was deployed or not within gearset?

    For me it's very…

  16. Allow the creation of CI Jobs against Salesforce orgs that we are delegated to, instead of needing to be owner.

    We have 2 admins that we want to be able to create all of the CI and Pipeline Jobs, even if they don't have their own credentials in a particular Salesforce org. They have Deployment delegation, and can run compare and deploys, but not set up integration jobs.

    This is then requiring us to either, provision extra licenses in each sandbox for our DevOps administrator, or have the developers create the CI jobs, which they are not comfortable with.

    And, as we start the Pipeline Pilot, we would like to leverage all of the existing CI jobs, but, that is…

  17. Trigger a Gearset CI deployment from an Azure DevOps release approval event

    Right now Gearset supports the set up of webhooks into azure devops which trigger deployments when a branch is updated.

    I'm looking for an extension to that feature to also include "approval completed" steps. These are already available to hook into within Azure DevOps, so I'm hoping it'd should be a relatively small piece of work to extend GS to support this

  18. Analyzer message when recordtype is deleted but still referenced in listview filter

    There are occasions where you might have a ListView filter that looks like:

    Opportunity.RecordType equals Type1,Type2,Type3

    When you delete rectype Type2, the ListView filter changes to:

    Opportunity.RecordType equals Type1,0123600000055CZAAY,Type3 in the source org

    The analyzer should tell you that your source org is corrupted.

    Would apply to deletion of recordType and all included metadata type components that allow for filtering of recordtypes: Workflow, Criteria-based-sharing, Reports, ListViews, etc.

  19. Support Email Template Folder metadata migration

    Metadata API for EmailTemplateFolder does not accept wildcards so you have to know the name of the folder to be able to pull it down and migrate it. Currently (as of 2-16) the Gearset product cannot pull these.

    Suggest that they add functionality to make a SOQL call to get all the folder names, at which point they should be able to pull them. Allowing for compare and deployment.

  20. Add an option to ignore location changes for Flow

    Hi, when reviewing changes for flows that are being deployed, it would be great to have a toggle option to hide or alternately color location changes which are just the location of elements on the flow canvas editor.
    <locationX>1353</locationX>
    <locationY>1305</locationY>

    Sometimes there are hundreds of location changes and it obscures the important information about what else changed.
