List of items that cannot be deployed in salesforce

Recently when I was deploying configuration for an org which has not gone live, into UAT I made note of manual tasks as i need to reuse that for deploying from UAT to production. I thought i will add few more items on the list to the list i already had. These items had to be manually configured and cannot be deployed.

  • ┬áRenaming Standard fields labels
  • Deletion of Picklist values
  • Configuring Search Layouts for all standard objects
  • Escalation rules and Assignment rules
  • Quote Templates

Always as a golden rule Deploy anything with profiles as all the necessary permissions will be carried over.
