Regarding Sandbox

Please tell me the steps involved in the prcoess of deployment from sandbox environment to production environment..?


Hi Sudh,

Have you tried doing it through Ecllipse?

For this first step being

  • for this checkout the Main/Sandbox org as a project in Ecllipse ( Take care that the salesforce plugin is installed in apex)
  • Once the checkout is done , then the next step would be to go to the project explorer  window and expand the project checked out by , now select the class/ trigger/ VF page to be deployed . Right click - then goto option Force.com from there select the option "Deploy to server"
  • It brings up a wizard for deployment and if you follow the steps prompted by it it should let you deploy without any hasles
  • One of the things asked by the wizard will be credentials of the org in which you want to deploy , then it may ask you to select a local repository which you may skip.
  • Then it brings up a list of objects selected by you for deployment with statuses ( like new deploment or to be overwritten) - the same screen provides a button for validating deployment elements and also the button called "Finish" which actually deploys to production if no error is encountered.

Did this answer your question? If not, let me know what didn't work, or if so, please mark it solved.

This can be done in two ways,


1. Through Eclipse.

2. Change sets option that is available in Salesforce.com


to deploy from Sandbox to Production , if you need to have test coverage for test classes at least 75 % above, otherwise deployment will not takes palce.
