Add an Event Control to a Deployment Plan

This topic explains how to deactivate events for the duration of an entire deployment plan deployment. For fine-grained event control, add event controls to data sets in the deployment plan instead.

To add an event control to a deployment plan:

  1. From the deployment plan details page, at the right edge of the Event Controls section header, click New.
  2. For API Object Name, enter the API name of the object containing the events you desire to deactivate.
  3. Select one of these Event Types:
    • Triggers
    • Validation Rules
    • Workflows
    • Duplicate Rules
    • Processes
  4. For Event Scope, always select Deployment Plan to invoke the endpoint in conjunction with the deployment plan.
  5. To deactivate all events of the selected event type for the selected object:
    1. Select Deactivate All Events.
    2. Click Save.

Though selecting Deactivate All Events is an option, Prodly strongly recommends first having a thorough understanding of the purpose of each event and being very careful determining whether to deactivate them all.

  1. To deactivate individual events of the selected event type for the specified object:
    1. Click Save to create the event control record.
    2. Click the newly-created Event Control Name.
    3. Click the Related tab.
    4. In the Event Control Items section, click New.
    5. Enter an Event Name. For example, Filter_formula_field_null is the name of a validation rule event on the SBQQ_PriceCondition__c object.
    6. Enter an Event Namespace. For example, SBQQ is the namespace for Salesforce CPQ custom objects.
    7. Click Save.
