Does any one know if there is any significance of these different symbols when deploying change sets:
1Not a stupid question at all, I have been wondering the same thing since it was introduced....– EricAug 26, 2015 at 22:40
I think different symbols are to differentiate deployment. When we deploy components which does not need test class to run then it shows different symbol other than component requires to run test class.– MIX DMLAug 27, 2015 at 1:43
3Looks like a bug in the ui to me. When deploying directly through the metadata api, you don't get those improper fractions, and you get a solid green circle on success.– martinAug 27, 2015 at 2:16
Always makes me feel special when I can deploy more components than there are in the change set. I hope they don't fix this specific issue!– Robin De BondtAug 27, 2015 at 7:40
Its nothing more than a bug where UI and API stop liking each other (Sync issue). These type of symbols don't have any description anywhere in SFDC ux. I have seen 2 others as well.– AshwaniAug 28, 2015 at 18:37
There are actually several reports of different people catching the "deployment fish", I believe it has to do with the known issue here, where the -- Component count is reported greater than actual count on deployment status UI page
The problem is the main deployment just counts the objects in the top part. When you add in profiles, you get the fish.
