I am trying to deploy global picklist metadata through Mavensmate but I cannot find the global picklist metadata type inside my mavensmate subscription index. Are global picklist metadata supported?

1 Answer 1


Yes, they are supported. It sometimes happens that they are not selectable however. If you have MavensMate version 6.0, to solve this, open your project, click MavensMate -> Metadata -> Update Project Metadata Index (.org_metadata). When this is done, edit your project using MavensMate -> Project -> Edit project, you should be able to select the Global Picklists in the Metadata Subscription List on the advanced tab.

EDIT: make sure MavensMate is set up to use API version 37.0

  • So I followed the steps you mentioned but I still only see the following options in my subscription index: screencast.com/t/XIYqVVS5 I must note I have Mavensmate prerelease version 7 installed. This is necessary for me to access sandbox with 1.1 TLS after salesforce disabled 1.0 TLS.

  • Can you check your MavensMate setting for global, project and user, and make sure they are all set up to use API version 37.0? Commented Jul 27, 2016 at 9:37
  • It is set to 34.0 - is it OK to update to 37.0? screencast.com/t/y8qyOEclT

    THANK YOU. I updated to 37.0, saved setting by clicking anywhere on mavensmate, quit both sublime and mavensmate, re-opened both apps, and then was able to follow your above instructions.
