I have a custom field on the Contact object. And I changed it from picklist to multi-select picklist. This was referenced in Assignment rules.
When I deployed this to another Sandbox, even though I added the assignment rules in the change-set, the deployment failed saying that the field type cannot be changed as it is referenced in the Case Assignment rules.
I had to change the reference of the field (to some other field temporarily) on the case assignment rules of the target organization and then I could deploy it.
This means we need to break the assignment rules functionality every time we deploy a field type change ?
Is this a limitation on Salesforce ? Or Is there a better way to do this without breaking the functionality ?
Thanks in Advance !
