URL Callout Demo

Find and Replace in files (available since Copado v3.11) for MetaData and Git MetaData steps allows users to find a specific text inside the Metadata files using a Regular Expression for matching, and replacing matching pieces with a given text. Use cases for this feature are countless, but to mention a few:

  • Deploy Outbound messages are now possible! by replacing the "Run as" username with the right username on the destination org. Find regex: user@server\.com\.dev Replace with:
  • Inactivate workflow rules: Find regex: <active>true</active> Replace with: <active>false</active>

Find and Replace feature

2015-10-28 Announcing new great features on the Copado's Heroku backend:

  • Org's cache auto-refresh. Every time an Org credential is validated and the cache is older than today cache will refreshed automatically. Every time a deployment is completed successfully, destination Org credential Cache will be automatically refreshed.
  • Compare full profiles/full permission sets between Orgs using the Snapshot Difference feature. Now when comparing 2 Salesforce Orgs, Profile and Permission Set metadata types are available for comparison.

No action needed on your end. This is already available.

2015-09-30 Announcing support for Test Level deploy options. When creating MetaData or Git MetaData step, or when creating a Promotion, you can now select the Test Level:

  • No Test Run (not apex test are run unless is a production deployment)
  • Run Specified Tests (only included apex test classes will run, aka Fast Deploy)
  • Run Local Tests (all apex test classes excluding managed packages)
  • Run All Tests In Org (all apex test classes including managed packages)
More information regarding Test Levels

2015-09-27 Announcing support for Fast Deploy. When deploying code to production, instead of being forced to run all apex test, if you included the test classes that provide at least 75% coverage of the code being deployed, Copado will automatically leverage on the brand new metadata api feature, fast-deploy. Test Level must be set to Run Specified Tests.
