As of now, if you have deletions enabled in a CI job, everything is deleted. It would be great to be able to specify which metadata types you want to include in the deletions since normally you won't need to delete all differences. This would be specially helpful to remove Apex classes and its permissions from profiles.

At least, it would be nice to allow users to cancel the process before the deployment actually starts. Sometimes we make mistakes and need to add/remove something from the deployment. The only option right now is to wait until the deployment starts in Salesforce and stop it from there.
Hello. A large number of commenters requested the ability to carry out value replacements as part of metadata deployments.
Gearset now offers a feature called Environment Variables that lets you do just that!
It works with both manual and CI deployments and lets you target either a Salesforce org or a Git repo of your choice. And, for a number of key metadata types, you can even specify the exact 'field' where the replacement should take place.
If you have any feedback on the Environment Variables feature, please open a new feature request or simply let us know in the in-app chat.
Thank you for upvoting this feature request and we hope that you will find the Environment Variables feature useful.

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.
