Has anyone had any success using Packages and ANT to deploy Person Account Layouts and workflows from a Sandbox to Production?

I can't find any information on this in implementation guide or the Metadata components in Eclipse.

The Implementation guide I was reading is available here


@mike you will find meta-data files for person account in Eclipse Force.com IDE & use these files for deployment in production or any other sandbox as describe below navigation.

Navigate to your Force.com IDE project as shown below:

Workflow Rules: ProjectName | src | workflows | Account.workflow
Object: ProjectName | src | objects | PersonAccount.object
Layouts: ProjectName | src | layouts | PersonAccount_XXXXX___Layout.layout


Note: Make sure you have synced objects/layouts/workflows in your force.com IDE project

  • I was able to get the layouts, thanks for that! But I can't find the PersonAccount object
