How to Commit and Deploy Custom Metadata Types
In order to deploy custom metadata types, you need to include the following components in your selection:
- In the metadata grid, select the CustomObject and CustomField metadata types and choose the custom metadata types you are trying to deploy. Custom metadata types will always have the ‘__mdt’ extension appended.
- To move the records linked to the custom metadata type, select the CustomMetadata type. The record will start with the name of the custom metadata type object.
