Outbound and Inbound Change Sets in Salesforce

Outbound and Inbound Change Sets in Salesforce

An outbound change set contains customizations that you want to send from this organization to another organization. These customizations can include new components or modifications to existing
components, such as apps, objects, reports, or Apex classes and triggers. An outbound change set can’t be used to delete or rename components in another organization.

  • Deploy Apex classes and triggers developed in sandbox to production
  • Copy custom objects and other customizations to a sandbox without refreshing it
  • Migrate changes across environments, e.g. dev sandbox to QA sandbox to production
