Salesforce now allows users to define List Views for Classes, Pages, etc. But I can't figure out how to deploy these to other orgs! Typically, list views are deployed as part of the CustomObject metadata type, but classes and pages aren't Objects. Is there a way to do this?

I don't believe you can do this.

Apex Classes and Pages are two files in the metadata, the .cls or .page file for source code and a *-meta.xml file containing the API version number and status.

There is no container into which such a list view definition could be put (unlike a CustomObject).

List Views can be deployed separately. Please check out the metadata documentation.

Sample XML looks like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<CustomObject xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">
. . .
    <listViews>
        <fullName>All_Mileages</fullName>
        <filterScope>all</filterScope>
        <label>All Mileages</label>
    </listViews>
    <listViews>
        <fullName>My_Mileages</fullName>
        <booleanFilter>1 AND 2</booleanFilter>
        <columns>NAME</columns>
        <columns>CREATED_DATE</columns>
        <filterScope>mine</filterScope>
        <filters>
            <field>NAME</field>
            <operation>equals</operation>
            <value>Eric Bristow</value>
        </filters>
        <filters>
            <field>City__c</field>
            <operation>equals</operation>
            <value>Paris</value>
        </filters>
        <label>My Mileages</label>
    </listViews>
. . .
</CustomObject>

  • And this also applies to Pages and Classes, which aren't CustomObjects?

  • I have not tested it myself, but I would assume so as long as you provide the proper fullName which should go to a specific API name. Commented Feb 7, 2013 at 20:20
  • @Benj my understanding is this only works for custom objects and I believe custom settings, most of the setup area config remains largely absent from the metadata api Commented Feb 15, 2013 at 1:58
