I am trying to change set a big object from my developer sandbox to a full sandbox.

I have seen here in the dev notes that it can be done via the metadata api. But nothing about changesets.

So I attempted this and got the error

Indexes required. Custom Big Objects without indexes aren't allowed.

I included the index field and all other fields on the object in the changeset.

Anyone got a helpful article on this. I havent found much besides the afore mentioned dev notes.


You cannot deploy Big Objects using Change Sets. Anything that can be deployed using Change Sets is documented at Components Available in Change Sets. Anything that you don't see there is not supported.

The only available option that is available as of today is using Metadata API.


Yes, you can deploy big objects using Change sets, you just need to find the index in "view/add dependencies"
