We are pleased to announce the AutoRABIT 3.9.2 release. We hope our new features will help you minimize your manual work and help you achieve greater efficiency by way of automation, in line with the vision of AutoRABIT. We assure you that, we are committed to enhancing customer excellence with your every single experience with AutoRABIT. Always you of our best in innovation at every step of your journey with AutoRABIT. We would be glad to hear back from you about any new features that you would like to be introduced by  us.

Here is an update about the changes and new features that will be available to you from 23rd May, 2016

Push Salesforce Sandbox Metadata into Version Control System

Salesforce has governor limits (size 400 MB or 10,000 files) to retrieve metadata at a single  request. For large enterprise Orgs, it may not be possible to retrieve and commit the entire Org exceeding governor limits to a version control system. AutoRABIT helps you overcome this challenge. You can now commit large orgs to a version control system with a single-click using AutoRABIT version control management.

Managing Your Version Control Credentials is Now Made Simple

  • Configure version control credentials in your user profile(My Profile)view and eliminae the need to re-enter them at multiple places in AutoRABIT.
  • Enter the version control credentials in your user profile console only once for a single branch under a repository and continue creating multiple branches. AutoRABIT auto-populates the credentials for all subsequent branches in the user profile.

EZ-Commits

  • Now,as an Admin, you can verify and commit changes made by all users into a version  control system with a few clicks in EZ-Commits.
  • AutoRABIT EZcommits has a new dimension now. With AutoRABIT, there is an option to retrieve any specific metadata types that a user wants to commit by clicking “ Additional Metadata” button in EZ-Commits.
  • Now you can compare the metadata differences between your Salesforce Org and your version control system before committing the changes by clicking “Compare and Commit”. This allows a user to see what changes are being committed to the version control system.

Projects (CI Jobs)

  • An option to exclude metadata types that you don’t want to bundle as a part of your CI build. This would greatly reduce your build time and increase your deployment success rate.
  • AutoRABIT now offers an option to validate your deployments without actually having to deploy your changes into your Orgs. To do this, check the “Validate Only” check-box.
  • Have better deployment visibility and enhanced CI jobs with code coverage reports option. You can now configure your apex tests as a part of your CI job.
  • During profile deployments, you can either retain or remove login IP ranges and user permissions from your source Org by clicking “Profile Settings”.

Selective Deployment

  • You can directly deploy EZ-Commit labels into Salesforce.
  • Re-use your un-deployed labels. You can now just validate the deployment and deploy the changes later, whenever required.
  • Performance improvement in the Org comparison
  • With parallel deployments, you have no more queues for your deployments.
  • Enhanced profile and permission sets deployments.

Details about the new features can be found in the “Help” section of AutoRABIT.
Please write to support@autorabit.com for a detailed discussion on the released features.

2. Log a support ticket from AutoRABIT

Register your concerns or issues with AutoRABIT in the tool itself, which will be addressed always on priority.

3.Reusing the un-deployed labels

Once a label is initiated for deployment, you can now just validate the deployment and deploy the build later when ever required. The label created will be stored with AutoRABIT, ready to be deployed whenever required

4.Support for validation in the CI job

Apart from deploying builds, you can also validate the builds and look at the detailed reports that are generated. Based on the reports generated, the user can deploy a build, which helps the user focus on the deployment failures and provide fixes accordingly. The user can also re-use this build in custom deployment.

5.Support for Picklists, CustomObjectTranslation in EZ-Commits

When a user modifies pick list values, the last modified date of a Picklist is not updated by Salesforce, so AutoRABIT provides an option to include pick lists in EZ- Commits.

  1. Data Loader Pro now supports :

Changes made by multiple users are committed to the version control system.

  1. Full support for Perforce and TFS.

  1. Keeping track of Deployments history

AutoRABIT keeps track of the changes attached to a particular label and deploy them into the destination. With “History” functionality you can view the changes done to a particular metadata member filtering with date or sandbox or project or author giving you the right audit needed for your project.
