Every company is racing against the clock to get great technology into their customers’ hands, faster. The successful ones know that continuous feedback and iteration are key to rapid delivery.
But companies using Salesforce often face unique challenges when it comes to implementing DevOps best practices. This paper outlines a process that uses Jenkins, ANT, and the Metadata API to automate Salesforce deployments.
Download our whitepaper to learn the tricks of the trade from one of our seasoned Salesforce architects, Ashraf Abu-Akeel. You’ll learn the tools needed to maintain code, the steps to automating code deployments, and best practices to optimize security.
Update: Salesforce DX has been released since this whitepaper was initially published, and some organizations have found success utilizing that technology in their CI pipeline. But since many Salesforce CI processes involve the same challenges (source control, managing file structures in Salesforce, etc.), those organizations can still find the principles outlined in our whitepaper useful.
