  1. Page Layout Deletion Not Detected

    When I remove a page layout from my Git repository (the file and the package.xml entry) and then do a comparison to an org that it still exists in, Gearset fails to detect a deletion. It doesn't even show up in the All objects tab. It happened to me yesterday and then I just reproduced it now.

  2. Warn if a selected metadata type is not supported by selected API version

    In the custom filters dialog, if you select a metadata type that is not supported by the API version, the compare and deploy currently just silently ignores that item, giving the impression that the compare has failed. e.g. selecting "Duplicate rule" with metadata version prior to 38.0.

    It would be good for Gearset to provide a warning if a selected metadata type is not supported by the selected API version.

  3. Enhanced Comparison filter - filter by difference count

    My use-case would somewhat be handled by separating code and xml differences, but I would like to be able to filter on difference count (or at least, easily see / sort by diff count).

    For example: We are updating the API version on all of our classes and triggers (about 279 files this go around) and I want to make sure that the API update is the only diff when doing a deployment. Or to be worded differently: only deploy files where the only difference is the API version.

  4. Show status in Chrome tab title

    In Chrome, it is possible to display info even when viewing a different tab.

    For example, I see this done with financial sites when they want to show the value of a stock ticker symbol.

  5. Check for conflicts on CI

    We have a scenario where CI would be useful, but there is a risk of it making destructive changes...

    Orgs in involved are Prod, UAT, Dev.

    Ideal development path would be Dev->UAT->Prod with each deployment using Gearset.

    In the real world, admins make some changes directly in Prod. So, we also need to merge changes back from Prod->UAT to make sure that UAT is a realistic test environment.

    It would be great if we could make a CI connection from Prod->UAT which automatically deploys non-destructive changes, and notifies us if a change cannot be sent to UAT for risk of…

  6. The number of differences does not appear to the left of the Prev/Next buttons in XML view mode

    However, the number of differences does appear when viewing the same Apex class in APEX view mode.

  7. False positives in managed code

    When I enable comparing managed packages (e.g. when I have added a field to a managed custom object), I get lots of false positives saying that there are differences in apex code.

    On the source org, the code is show as "(hidden)"; on the target it is shown as empty. And Gearset lists this as a change.

    Obviously, I know it's not a change, but it adds a lot of clutter to the comparison view.

  8. Suggestion - make comparison highlight colors configurable

    The background highlight colors for differences are much too light to be able to be seen clearly when viewing in APEX mode. Colors are much brighter in XML mode. Request - allowing these colors to be configurable. Thanks for the consideration.

  9. Compare org monitoring from an arbitrary date to the current state of the org

    In Monitor ORG's tab, we have a daily set of cached metadata that can be used to troubleshoot issues in an ORG. This is great that we have this data. What would be even better (if there is not a way to do it currently), is if we could take the metadata cache from the monitoring job, "x" days ago, and compare it to the current state of an ORG.

    Maybe an ideal way to achieve this would be to select a cached version in the Compare Organizations screen. Alternatively, a button can be added in the Monitoring Job history…

  10. A count of differences could be grouped by type

    If the count of differences could be grouped by type/color that would be helpful.
    Ex: 20 differences: 5 red, 7 green, 8 yellow. It gives a better sense of how drastic the differences between Source and Target are at first glance.

  12. Clarify installation of managed packages and allow opt-out

    It appears that if there are dependencies in the deployment that require a Managed Package to be installed/updated, that package is automatically installed/updated before the deployment takes place.

    This is great, but it needs more clarity and control for the user.

    It would be nice to know if Managed Packages are going to be installed as the result of a deployment, and if so, opt-in or opt-out of that process. It would be great if opting-out also displayed the related metadata with the dependency so those could be excluded as well.

    This may also avert some errors where metadata needs…

  13. Display org authorisation errors

    When I link my Salesforce org with Gearset, I like to use OAuth as that provides the best security.

    Whenever there is an error during the linking process, such as when:

    1. The app is blocked (OAUTHAPPBLOCKED)
    2. I press Deny on the OAuth consent screen
    3. The org has IP restrictions in place that prevents Gearset from completing the OAuth flow

    Gearset returns to the Manage Orgs or Configure page without showing me what went wrong!

  14. Filtering by user across the app

    Filter deployment history & automated jobs to only show a specific team member's activity (e.g. mine). With large teams, the history pages can get too busy and makes it difficult to find the results I'm interested in.

  15. Manage Orgs Re-authorization returns you to a default sorted list.

    I refreshed a sandbox. I need to re-auth my orgs. I go to Manage Orgs, and sort by my friendly name. I click re-auth, and OAuth is successful and the app tells me I did a good job. But the page it returns me to is using a different sort then I left the page with. ie, it sorts the list by username again. Just extra button clicking I'd like to get rid of if possible. I have to re-auth orgs all the time.

  16. Dependency Engine enhancement for Sharing Rules

    Dependencies with sharing rules. Roles/Groups/Fields referenced in sharing rules may be helpful to add as "dependent" on as if they are not in the destination org you cannot deploy.

  18. allow multiple slack webhooks per scheduled monitor or test run.

    I have multiple slack teams, I'd like the ability to hook up a monitor org, or a test run to send to multiple slack webhook urls.

    Not super important, and I suppose I could get around it by scheduling a duplicate, but that just felt wasteful of everyone's API's. :)

  19. Exportable metadata reports for orgs

  20. Identify different backup job types (full vs. incremental)

    Today, it is not possible to identify the backup job type, so we cannot really distinguish between a full and an incremental backup. This would be helpful to get better visibility when a full backup job is/was running.
