When I validate a changeset it takes 4 - 6 hours to run all tests, then once validated the Quick Deploy option is available. I will schedule the deployment to happen 2 to 3 days after that, as appropriate to reduce user downtime etc.

While waiting for my deployment window there may be requests to make changes, I generally try to hold off on any changes until the deployment is finished but wonder what operations can be safely performed without affecting the Quick Deploy. I don't want to have to run the validation again, if I don't have to.

  • Is there a list of operations that can be safely performed?
  • Is there a list of operations that will invalidated a Quick Deploy?

As long as there is no deployment or package installation in the meantime there shouldn't be any problem.

If you perform a deployment after a validation, whether through Quick Deploy, a package installation, or a regular deployment, all validations no longer qualify for quick deployment. Revalidate the set of components to quick-deploy.
