Deploy to major orgs


Minor and Major branches

Minor branches are individual git branches that do not have a CI/CD associated org

Major branches are git branches that have a CI/CD associated org, and each new commit in a major branch automatically triggers a deployment to the associated org.

Examples:

  • Minor to major: When a merge request from dev_nico to ├Čntegration (1) is validated and merged, a new state (commit) is detected in branch integration, so CI server automatically deploys to associated Salesforce org Integration (2)
  • Major to Major: When a merge request from integration to uat (3) is validated and merged, a new state (commit) is detected in branch uat, so CI server automatically deploys to associated Salesforce org UAT (4)
  • Major to Major: When a merge request from preprod to production (5) is validated and merged, a new state (commit) is detected in branch production, so CI server automatically deploys to associated Salesforce org Production (6)

Merge requests between major branches

  • Create a New Merge request
    • Set a meaningful title, like MAJOR: recette to uat or MAJOR: uat to production
    • Make sure that Delete source after merge and Squash commits are UNCHECKED
  • Click on Submit merge request
  • Controlling jobs are automatically launched, and should pass as merge requests from minor branches has been in success
    • If jobs fail, it means that you need to perform manual actions in target org, like activating features or manually rename elements if metadatas API Names has been renamed (which is a bad practice but happens)
  • Once all jobs are in success, merge the merge request
    • It will automatically trigger the deployment to the associated Salesforce org
