How to manage big teams working on dev org for managed package?

Hello there,

I have signed up for Salesforce partner prgram and have everything setup. I have setup a dev org where my team do all the dev work. We also perform QA on the same instance. However, the problem is that during QA I have to freeze the instance for testing purpose and my team awaits the QA untill its completed.

Is there any solution to my problem? Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Pranav, 

always Keep you Dev Org ,Testing Org(Sandbox)  and Prodcution Org separately its always recommended.

Dev Org--Developement Works
Sandbox--Test Environment.( its Contain live copy of your live data. so you can Test against  your live data and normal Testing).
Production-- Live.

Impartent: when you make any Production to Dev refresh without having Developer's knowledge Dev work will be gone. 

so keep your all three instance separate.

Here is the Points about sandbox test environment. 

below URL is very usefull.  choose you sandbox according to this.

Hello Karthikeyan,

Your point really makes sense, however, I do not have any sandboxes. I work in SF Developer Editions (no sandboxes). So, if you have any idea about managing the code and config acrosss multiple developer editions, would be really helpful.

you can use eclepise LUNA or higher version+Force.com IDE connect with your Developer Edition download your Org metadata including class and apex pages and config everything. ask your developer to work in Force.com IDE and then use eclepise to push or deploy to your Org. 

that make sence to maintain the code centralized


if you are working for any clients. i suggest you to purchase licensed veriosn and create a full sandbox and developer sandbox

Hello Karthikeyan,

Thanks for the response. You are perfectly right that migration of components across DEs is possible using either Force.com IDE or Salesforce's ant tool. However, is there any other simple way or Salesforce's native tool that can help me keep the components in sync across multiple DEs?

Thanks again!
