  1. Warn about unsaved changes to my draft deployment

    The Draft Deployment feature (https://gearset.com/blog/collaborate-with-draft-deployments-from-gearset) allows me to quickly build up a deployment, but I sometimes press Next to kick off the deployment without saving the current state of things I have selected.

    If the deployment fails, I sometimes can't get back and need to go to an earlier version of my draft.

    It would be great if you could prompt me to save when leaving the results screen so I don't forget.

    • Deploy detected changes to other orgs

      Being able to detect and roll back changes to orgs through the change monitoring is cool, but what I'd really like is to deploy detected changes to other orgs.

      For example, if we detect a new configuration change to Production, being able to clone that change back down into our Sandboxes directly from the monitoring snapshot would be a real time saver. Or if someone deleted something in Production, being able to make that destructive change down into the Sandbox.

      It would help us remove the step of running the comparison and pushing the changes after seeing a monitoring job…

        This is a great idea, and we’re planning on adding support for this to the app in the future.

        I will update this idea with more information once we begin actively working on this feature.

        Jason.

          • Display deployment history in a list

            Currently viewing the deployment history requires opening a pdf. If going back in time the only way to find a specific item that was deployed is to open one pdf at a time and look for the change.

            It would be great if clicking on a past deploy would show items deployed in a list form on the page itself. This would make finding a past change easier.

                Thanks for the suggestion. We can definitely look into this.

                Would you expect to create these pairs from the compare screen, or the manage orgs screen?

                Thanks,
                Jason.

              • Source Code Metrics

                Hello,

                I think it would be very nice to connect the repository either to Code Climate for apex or to Source Code Scanner for apex and Security.

                Also it would be nice to connect it to Heroku Lightning CLI for aura bundles (application and components).

                • Specified Test Level Suggestion

                  Hello,

                  It would be very nice to be able to have a test classes suggestion when doing a deployment with "specified test level". The suggestion will ensure the package elements will be covered at least by 75% and so speed up the deployment.

                  • 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. :)

                          Agreed, we are totally behind this.

                          We are hoping to have push to source control (for GitHub, Gitlab and Bitbucket) released by the start of October. I’ll update this suggestion when work on this begins in earnest.

                          Thanks,
                          Jason.

                          • Allow me to exclude metadata.

                            I have certain metadata which is broken or dangerous to migrate from a dev org, I'd like to exclude it from this and subsequent releases. If I could 'right click' and ignore it that would be good.

                              • Differentiate XML and Code differences in the comparison

                                I would find it very useful if the comparison result highlighted if the difference was in the XML or the Code (or both) for each item. This would especially save time when there are a lot of differences.

                                  Thanks for the suggestion Celio.

                                  We think this should be possible to do and are doing some background work into how to manage and display this. More details to come soon.

                                  Thanks,
                                  Jason.

                                • 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.

                                      HI Celio,

                                      Thanks for the suggestion.

                                      Could you explain a little more about the primary reason for wanting to store these failures?

                                      Where would you expect these results to be stored – in a separate tab in the history set, or alongside the other deployments in your history?

                                      We currently store failed scheduled deployments in your validated package history. We can certainly look at whether we could expand this to cover manually started deployments as well.

                                      The reason behind our initial decision not to store these in the app is that the user would be using Gearset at the time of the failure, so we would prompt them to fix the deployment then and there. Our draft deployment feature, which allows you to save and build packages over time, might also help to work around this requirement for you?

                                      Thanks,
                                      Jason.

                                    • Provide option to disable parallel apex testing in Scheduled Tests

                                      Scheduled Test runs can fail due to UNABLE_TO_LOCK_ROW errors. This is due to what amounts to a bug in SF: accessing public custom settings in tests which are run in parallel can cause deadlocks. Really, the tests ought to be isolated from each other, but they are not. See:

                                      https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.apexcode.meta/apexcode/apex_testing_best_practices.htm

                                      The workaround in SF is to disable parallel apex testing.

                                      If Gearset could do that during the scheduled test run, it would prevent false test failures.

                                      I guess I could change the option on the SF org, but sometimes parallel testing is useful, so I wouldn't want to disable it…

                                      • 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 To Target

                                          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.
