- Data Loading Step integrated into your Salesforce Test Automation set up.
A Salesforce Continuous Integration or a Salesforce Continuous Delivery is never complete without an integrated data loading step that sets up test data in your test environment before running the automated tests.
The advantage with an end-to-end Salesforce release management suite like AutoRABIT is that it makes it all easier to plug-in those all important steps into your Salesforce continuous integration process set up.
With AutoRABIT parent-child based Advanced Data Loader, you move the complex manual operations like KAV objects, attachments, users, etc., from one Salesforce sandbox to another in automated manner.
AutoRABIT has the framework support for the post-build and post-deploy activities to be performed based on your needs as shown below :
Some of the key post-build events that AutoRABIT supports which can be extended as well.
- Send out email notification on the success or failure of a build, or a merge conflict or a commit failure in version control.
- Trigger deployment into destination, only if the code coverage in a source is greater than 75% or so.
- Trigger additional jobs on the success of a particular continuous integration job.
Some of the key post-deploy activities that are supported include the following:
- Notifications to team members for deployment failures with detailed reports.
