Difference between validate change sets and deploy change sets (other than 'deploy does actual deployment')?

Hi Sunny,

Validate Changeset: This step will validate your Changeset component and will also check for the Test coverage (75%). After validation you can deploy the changeset or you can keep it without deployment.

Deploy Changeset: Deploy changeset will actually deploy the Changset components into the mentioned Salesforce environment.

Deploy Changeset is superset of Validate Changeset beacuse if you directly click on Deploy Changeset, it will first perform Validation and on successful validation of Changeset component it will deploy those component.

Hope this will help you.

Thanks,
Pratik
