Is it possible to deploy Custom field on standard object via. ANT. I have checked it multiple time with following conclusion: 1. We can deploy Custom Field on Standard object via. Eclipse but not by ANT - Checked 2. We can deploy Custom Field on Custom Object via. ANT & Eclipse both - Checked

Can anyone confirm this?

Rechecked after comment by Sebastian and Himanshu. Still getting the same error:

My Package.xml file is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata"> <types> <members>Account.CATCTI__CAT_Age__c</members> <name>CustomField</name> </types> <version>36.0</version> </Package>

Target is:

`<!-- Deploy the unpackaged set of metadata retrieved with retrieveUnpackaged and run tests in this organization's namespace only-->
<target name="deployUnpackaged">
  <sf:deploy username="${sf.username}" password="${sf.password}" sessionId="${sf.sessionId}" serverurl="${sf.serverurl}" maxPoll="${sf.maxPoll}" deployRoot="retrieveUnpackaged" rollbackOnError="true"/>

Error received is: 1. objects/Account.object (Account.CAT_Age__c) -- Error: Not in package.xml

  • can you post your package.xml – Himanshu Jun 1 '16 at 17:43
  • I can guarantee it is possible to do it. Maybe you're doing something wrong. As requested, please post your package.xml. – Sebastian Kessel Jun 1 '16 at 17:47
  • Added more information & checked again. Still same issue persists. – Rajendra Singh Nagar Jun 2 '16 at 18:54

Make sure this is your package.xml

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