We want to use Cumulus instead of Ant to control our deployments. We are using Bitbucket for cv. We want to make partial deployments in order to deploy only the changes includes in the pull request and not all the branch,also use "quick deploy" feature to decrease the time. Its possible to use Cumulus for this porpose?

We are reviewing also Solenopsis


There's a decent writeup on CumulusCI over here which is also hosted on GitHub by the Salesforce Foundation. It should be enough to get you started down that path if you choose. I won't give a product recommendation, as it's really up to you to determine the most appropriate tool for your use case. However, it is likely that anyone not using Ant/Heroku/GitHub will initially be unable to take advantage of Salesforce DX, though they have stated that they hope to provide support for a number of CI and CVS systems.

  • Yes! We were thinking to use that one. The problem is that We dont know if we can do partial deployments, no all the branch to decrease the deployment timmings. I can not found anything related in the documentation. – lopez.regalado.fj May 17 '17 at 20:47
  • @lopez.regalado.fj Salesforce DX will do this automatically, but even in ant/Jenkins it is possible to do so, you just need to do some scripting. – sfdcfox May 17 '17 at 20:51
  • mmm, so maybe its better to use DX or Solenopsis or customize our Ant script instead of CumulusCI for this purpose (don't work with packages) – lopez.regalado.fj May 22 '17 at 7:39
  • @lopez.regalado.fj DX isn't out "yet", but should be in short order. If you can't wait, Solenopsis is probably a decent alternative. – sfdcfox May 22 '17 at 13:05
  • not ready yet? mmm, also we don't want to change Intellij, maybe we need to use Force.com IDE to work with SalesforceDX – lopez.regalado.fj May 22 '17 at 16:03
