If you still have questions or prefer to get help directly from an agent, please submit a request.
We’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
General Community deployment checklist
DEACTIVATE the Community before deployment.
(If the Community is active when retrieved for metadata deployment, it will be deployed in ACTIVE state in production too, which can result in emails being sent, so DEACTIVATE the Community before retrieving it for deployment.)
Turn off email deliverability before publishing or activating the Community if necessary.
Workflow email alert
If org-wide email address is used, the org-wide email address must be in the production instance prior to deployment (and verified) or else we have to edit the metadata during deployment and change / remove the reference to the org-wide email address.
Components to check and include as part of the Community
- SiteDotCom / ExperienceBundle.
In particular, every image in the Community site that is uploaded as ContentAsset (usually as a File) needs to be included in the list of component to be deployed, or the Community would be deployed with broken links and functionality.
