We're using Conga Composer. We've added a custom field to the class "APXTConga4__Conga_Template__c" called "Template_Call_Method__c". It's a picklist.
When I deploy to a new org I have to be able to add this field to the APXTConga4__Conga_Template__c object, otherwise dependencies will fail, the most obvious being any permissions that rely on this field.
I already have CustomObjects defined in package.xml as this:
<types> <members>*</members> <name>CustomObject</name> </types>
And I've tried adding the field to CustomFields:
<types> <members>*</members> <members>APXTConga4__Conga_Template__c.Template_Call_Method__c</members> . . . <name>CustomField</name> </types>
However, when I try to deploy this I get the following error:
objects/APXTConga4__Conga_Template__c.object -- Error: Must specify a non-empty label for the CustomObject [+ consequent errors]
Edit to add: If I try and add the whole Conga object to the package manifest as follows:
<types> <members>*</members> <members>APXTConga4__Conga_Template__c</members> <name>CustomObject</name> </types>
Then I get this error:
objects/APXTConga4__Conga_Template__c.object -- Error: Cannot modify object: entity=CustomEntityDefinition, component=01I20000000tcgu, field=Description, state=MANAGED_INSTALLED: newValue='Merge template manager for use with Conga Composer and Conga Mail Merge.', oldValue='Template Manager for use with Conga Composer and Conga Mail Merge.'
Ie, as expected, its a managed package, you can't mess with it.
So how can I deploy the custom field to this object using ant?
