From January 2023, users will need a Salesforce Industries add-on license to deploy Vlocity components. Please see here for licensing details.

Gearset's metadata filters control what Salesforce metadata and Vlocity data packs are included in your comparison. Click Manage custom filters to pick individual types and items to include.

Gearset shows all the Salesforce metadata types and Vlocity data pack types available to compare.

Select a type to include all data packs of that type in the comparison. This filter will compare all of our Data Raptors.

If you've got a lot of data packs of the same type, clicking the, All items toggle will let you select individual data packs to include in the comparison. This can make the comparison significantly faster if you know that only a few data packs have changed. This filter will compare our Gearset_Docs_English OmniScript.

You can compare Salesforce metadata and Vlocity data packs at the same time, by selecting the types to compare in the Metadata and Vlocity tabs. Gearset will show all of the changes in the same comparison grid, even highlighting dependencies between metadata and data packs.

Gearset will compare the dependencies of any data pack you include in the metadata filter. For example, if our Gearset_Docs_English OmniScript depends on a DataRaptor named gearsetGetMasterAccountDetails, Gearset will compare the gearsetGetMasterAccountDetails DataRaptor even if DataRaptor isn't selected in the metadata filter. This makes it easy to make sure dependencies are included during the deployment, so that the OmniScript works as expected in the target org.

You can save your metadata filter selections and share them with your team, to make it easy for your whole team to run the same comparison with the same settings every time.
