Common deployment issues and errors

Sometime when you deploy metadata to a newly created instance you can face some strange deployment issues. In this post I’ll try to collect such issues and solutions for it.

  1. Error: Could not resolve standard field’s name.

This error means that a source salesforce org had enabled some features which was not enabled or unavailable in a destination org. You have to discover the official documentation for object field description.

For example I have got the following error

objects/Account.object (Account.NaicsDesc) — Error: Could not resolve standard field’s name.

In the documentation you can find that this field is related to feature

This field is only available to organizations that use Prospector or Clean.

Solution: enable on destination org if possible or cut off the field from Account metadata xml

this post will be updated as soon as I will get new errors
