In Spring ‘15 Salesforce released a feature called “Quick Deploy” that allows you to only run a small subset of tests when you do your deployment instead of running all the tests. When you’re in an org like ours that running all tests can take upwards of 5hrs (or longer if the moon is aligned incorrectly) this is wonderful. Let’s take a look at how quick deploy works and how you can use quick deploy with Solenopsis.
How Quick Deploy Works
Quick deploy simply runs a provided list of tests when you run your deployment. This deployment is then staged under your Deployment Status in setup. Once the all the tests have run you’ll get a button that let’s you quick deploy.
