How to release custom fields with Eclipse

Hi,

I'm testing a release by using Eclipse to Deploy to a Sandbox from another Sandbox.

 

However, when I go through the process, I never see custom fields in the selectable list for deployment even though they are selected in both projects, obviously if I try to release anything else that depends on the new fields, it complains that the fields don't exist.

 

What am I missing?

 

Thanks,
David

Hi,

 

To do this, the simplest way I can think of is to deploy the complete object, in which you have created new field. However, please be careful in doing so, as it may impact the setting of existing object, specially if both the orgs are not in sync.

 

Let me know if you have any other question.

 

Happy to help you!

Hi,

 

Thanks for the input.

 

Yes, I wanted to only release the new fields as I understood that if I did that then I could add the profile and it would only add the permission changes relating to those fields.

 

I've seen an example that I can't find now, from Salesforce I think where they release custom fields using Eclipse.

 

Thanks,

David

Interesting, why don't you go with change set?
