Deploy in group edition

Hi people,

i would like to deploy objects from enterprise edition to group edition.Can this be done?


I just did similar deployment yesterday. Yes, you can deploy the custom objects from EE to GE. FYI, You can deply Apex Classes from  EE to GE.


@Doudou, please tell me how to do it.


You can create a package, and add the objects you want to deploy to the package. Here is the guide on how to package and distribute:


Or you can deploy them using IDE "deploy to server" option.


With deploying as a package, you can easily uninstall them later.


I tried using IDE but am getting the following error: projects require an organization with the Metadata API enabled.
API is not enabled for this organization or partner.

Is there a way i can enable Metadata  API in group edition?

I think you have to call to enable your metadata API feature


But, to save your time, just login into the Enterprise Edition org and create a new package, and add whatever objects you want to deploy, then upload that package. Once the uploading success, you will get an installation url. Click the url, and log in as administrator of the Group Edition you want to install.I tried on both Managed and Unmanaged...they both work..
