Custom object deployment

Hi all,

 

I'm testing a deployment process from a sandbox environment to my dev environment. I'm using Force.com IDE to create a new project from the sandbox to deploy on the dev environment.

 

I don't see any issues when I deploy custom fields created on default objects or custom objects but the tabs I create using these custom objects don't work. The tabs do appear on setup > create > tabs but they don't appear on "customize my tabs" screen.

 

If I try create a new custom object tab, the combobox "object" doesn't list the custom objects.

 

Can you help me find the best way to deploy my changes using Force.com IDE?

 

Thanks in advance.

I changed the profile permissions on the custom tabs. It's working fine.

 

Thanks a lot.

Are you also deploying profile permissions, or after deploying have you configured profile permissions on the relevant objects and/or tabs?

Custom Objects and Standard Objects are combined under "objects".

 

To delpoy a custom object to the server, you must first download it into your project, which can be done either when you create the project, or by using the Force.com > Add/Remove Metadata Components... context menu command.

Thanks JonP for the inforamtion.

 

I am not able to get my objects component added.

 

After I select custom objects from Add/Remove Metadata Components I see the pop-up Refreshing project that hangs all the time. I thought my laptop is slow now I tried on the new desktop still same problem

 

Any suggestions? do I need to make changes settings changes.
