Deploy Global Picklist (Winter 16') from Sandbox to Production?

Is it possible to create a global picklist in a dev sandbox then deploy to production through a change set?  

If so, what is the component type of a global picklist?

Hi Jack,

I think that you can't deploy them yet to prod because it's still a pilot, you can get more info in this link[1]

In the Summer '16 Release Notes - New Change Set Components (

The components available for a change set vary by edition. The following components are now available for change sets.
Global Picklist
Represents the metadata for a global picklist: the set of shared picklist values that custom picklist fields can use.

Hi Daniel,

We tried to use the global picklist change set from full sandox to a new developer sandbox. We got an error that is not allowed in change set. Are you familiar with this functionality.

Please advice.

Hi Ella,

Are both sandboxes on Summer '16?

I got the same "Global picklists are not allowed in change sets." message when moving a change set from a Summer'16 to Spring'16 org.

Both orgs will need to be on Summer '16 for the change set to include global picklists.

There is a component type call Global Value Set.
