View Deployment Results


Deployment results tracking records capture the details of each deployment or simulation. During execution, Release monitors the progress and updates the Deployment Results automatically as execution proceeds through each data set.

While in progress and after completion, use the Deployment Results page to drill into the results.

If Release encounters errors processing a deployment or simulation, errors appear in the results records. For successful processing of all records in a data set element or batch, the statuses in the results indicate success. When one or more records in an element or batch fail to process successfully, Release sets the final status to indicate failure.

When Release attempts to process something referenced in your data set (such as an object or field) that no longer exists, an error message immediately appears in the results.

To access the page, click any deployment record from the Deployment History table to open the Deployment Results page.

Delete All Deployment Results 

Deployment Results Deletion 

Deployment results records can accumulate over time, causing your control org to run out of data space. You can manually delete specific sets of deployment results records from within Salesforce or use buttons on the Release Admin tab under Delete Deployment Results to delete all deployment results records of the following types:

  • Delete Deployment Record Results – Permanently deletes the deployment results for all individual records. Retains deployment activity and deployment, batch, deployment plan, and data set results. Resets only the individual record reports on the Deployment Dashboard.
  • Delete All Deployment Results – Permanently deletes all deployment results records and deployment activity records, effectively resetting all reports on the Deployment Dashboard.

Deleting deployment results records affects the accuracy of the reports on the Deployment Dashboard.

This action cannot be undone and all deployment tracking information will be lost. Prodly recommends taking these actions only as a last resort.
