I am looking for a way to migrate the changes I made in my sandbox into my production environment.. I am using the Professional Edition, which adds a level of complexity.
Professional and Group Editions do not support the Metadata API needed to deploy configuration changes from one place to another. (API Access in Group and Professional Editions)
Other APIs such as the Metadata API, Bulk API, and Apex Methods exposed using the SOAP Web service remain unavailable.
The only true workaround I know for this is to create a managed package and have it go through security review and such.
