Yes you can simply migrate by providing appropriate defination in package XML

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
   <Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">

The above shows how you will migrate industry picklist field for Account


The example given is out of date now as of API 38. See StandardValueSet.

    Can you expand on this a little? Link only answers tend to break over time!

    Currently it is NOT possible to migrate standard field picklist values using ant migration tool or changeset, please support the idea in the answer above. Commented Oct 19, 2017 at 8:50

you can migrate the picklist values of the standard fields by adding the standard value sets from dreamfactory. It is the best method I have found so far.

  • Is dreamfactory a product you are affiliated with?
