Actually, I already have a salesforce org where I have some custom objects & fields. Now I want to create the same objects and fields(including checkbox, formula fields nearly 100) in another org. Manually creating will consume a lot of time. So anybody can suggest what I can do to migrate these object & fields?

I have gone through the ant tool but I'm not able to understand the process. https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.daas.meta/daas/forcemigrationtool.htm

  • Even if you don't use ANT, a metadata api retrieve() and deploy() call is definitely the way to go. I believe the Eclipse "Force.com IDE" and workbench would both work if you don't want to use ANT.

You can make use of Change sets are Available in Enterprise, Unlimited, Free, and Database.com Editions. Make sure you have following permissions for your profile in new org. If you still dont see it then log a case with Salesforce.

Also change sets deploy metadata within same org stacks..means that you can deploy changes between a specific org's sandbox and production. it will not work if you want to move metadata from Org A to Org B
