Custom Settings Deployment

Updated 1 month ago by Gabriel Figueroa

Custom Settings

The Custom Settings step allows users to deploy the data held in Custom Settings objects. IDs such as that of Users, Profiles and the Organisation Id for Hierarchy Custom Settings are also mapped in the destination environment.

Creating a new custom setting step consists of the following:

  1. Click the Refresh Cache link to load the list of Custom Settings
  2. Select a Custom Setting from the dropdown
  3. Click Get Custom Settings Values (The values are retrieved and listed in the Multi Select picklist field)
  4. Select the values to deploy
  5. Save the Step


If the custom settings reference values that are specific to an Environment, Copado can automatically change the values of the source environment to the corresponding values of the destination environment. This is done with the Environment Variable feature.

E.g. Environment Variable:

Source Org: AdminUser = "admin.user.dev@company.com"

Destination Org: AdminUser = "admin.user.test@company.com" 

In the custom setting fields, any occurrences of "admin.user.dev@company.com" would be replaced with the value of the Destination Org: "admin.user.test@company.com"


How did we do?
