AppOps API

This Prodly AppOps application programming interface (API) replaces the original, deprecated API.


This topic describes the Prodly AppOps application programming interface (API). The API helps integrate continuous delivery and release management systems to automatically perform AppOps deployments. For example, use API requests to deploy a data set or deployment plan.

The AppOps API is a RESTful API that allows you to integrate AppOps deployments into a larger continuous integration process. AppOps API requests use the REST API to invoke AppOps actions. AppOps also supports global Apex services for internal Salesforce automation.

These API services are available:

  • REST Services
  • Global Apex Services

Prodly AppOps REST Services 

Prodly AppOps REST services provide AppOps consumers and integrated systems outside of Salesforce the ability to invoke deployments and perform other actions through REST-based API requests exposed by the AppOps Salesforce package in your Prodly AppOps control environment.


The Deployment Web Service allows you to deploy deployment plans and data sets from applications external to the Salesforce, such as a continuous delivery or release management system. For example:

  • You are running CircleCI and after deploying updated code to a QA sandbox, you need to automatically deploy the updated data to the sandbox for end-to-end testing.
  • You have a custom built solution coordinating CPQ deployments that performs automated steps to promote product catalog changes between development, QA, and UAT sandboxes.



The REST Endpoints 

These APIs mimic and act as proxy for the core AppOps services REST API as documented in Swagger.

  • /apexrest/PDRI/v1/instances/{instanceId}/checkin – saves data from a Salesforce environment to a version control system (VCS) repository branch.
  • /apexrest/PDRI/v1/instances/{instanceId}/checkout – deploys data from a VCS repository branch to a Salesforce environment.
  • /apexrest/PDRI/v1/instances/{instanceId}/deploy – deploys data from one Salesforce environment to another Salesforce environment.
  • /apexrest/PDRI/v1/instances – authorizes a Salesforce environment for use by the APIs.
  • /apexrest/PDRI/v1/jobs – retrieves the history of deployments.

Refer to our Swagger page for details. Related Salesforce Documentation.

Prodly AppOps Global Apex Services  

The DeploymentServiceRequestV1 class is an Apex service specific to Prodly AppOps.


The DeploymentServiceRequestV1 class allows you to deploy metadata, deployment plans, and data sets using the Apex API. Depending on the parameters you specify, the API request deploys data from your control environment or a source environment you specify to one or more destination environments.



Global Apex Service

Service Methods

Provides wrappers to deploy data and metadata, also to list managed instances.

The DeploymentServiceRequestV1 class provides these methods:

global with sharing class AppOpsGlobalService {
  global static AppOpsWebServices.Jobs deploy(AppOpsWebServices.DeploymentServiceRequestV1 deploymentServiceRequest, 
    String destinationManagedInstanceId);
  global static AppOpsWebServices.ManagedInstances listInstances();

Sample Code

Example code which lists all environments in AppOps in order to find the source and destination environments based on org IDs. It then kicks off a deployment of a data set.

//Retrieve managed instances
PDRI.AppOpsWebServices.ManagedInstances managedInstances =
//Find environment ID by org ID
Id sourceOrgId = '00D4x000001989NEAQ',
destinationOrgId = '00D020000008kmIEAQ';
PDRI.AppOpsWebServices.ManagedInstance sourceInstance,
for( PDRI.AppOpsWebServices.ManagedInstance instance : managedInstances.instances ) {
if( instance.platformInstanceId == sourceOrgId ) {
sourceInstance = instance;
} else if( instance.platformInstanceId == destinationOrgId ) {
destinationInstance = instance;
//Deploy data set from control to a sandbox
Id dataSetId = 'a054x00000685c3AAA';
PDRI.AppOpsWebServices.DeploymentServiceRequestV1 deploymentServiceRequest =
new PDRI.AppOpsWebServices.DeploymentServiceRequestV1();
deploymentServiceRequest.deploymentName = 'My Deployment Name';
deploymentServiceRequest.deploymentNotes = 'Just a test deployment';
deploymentServiceRequest.source =
new PDRI.AppOpsWebServices.DeploymentSource( sourceInstance.Id ); =
new List
{ new PDRI.AppOpsWebServices.DataDeploymentRequest(dataSetId) };
deploymentServiceRequest.metadata =
new PDRI.AppOpsWebServices.MetadataDeploymentRequest();
String destinationManagedInstanceId =;
PDRI.AppOpsGlobalService.deploy(deploymentServiceRequest, destinationManagedInstanceId);
