Deploying the Replaced and Newly added custom picklist values

Hi,

 

I have a custom picklit field called Job Category. I have added three new picklist values and also replaced an old picklist value. How to deploy these changes to production? Can we do this using change sets or should I repeat the same procedure in production environment like the way I did in Sandbox?

 

 

Thanks in advance for the help.

Virija,

 

You can do that but please make sure that you are not using the old values some where in the code.I mean to say you will have to check the all the dependencies of old values before doing that.

You can deploy the new picklist into prod, but it will not update the existing data records.  I usually just add my new picklist values, then choose 'Replace' for the old values and choose the new values they map to as I delete them

Do you want me to repeat the actions that I did in Sandbox in Production for picklist values?
