Change set deployment is taking several hours more in Winter '15 (b)
Last updated 2016-07-28 ·Reference W-2419058 ·Reported By 139 users
Some customers have noticed that their deployments via change set are taking considerably more time (e.g. several hours more) in Winter '15 compared to Summer 14.
a) Upload a change set and perform a validation/deployment of this change set.
b) Test execution will be significantly slower
Using the Metadata API (e.g. Force.com Migration Tool or Force.com IDE) has been mentioned by some customers as being a valid workaround, as deployment time in this case is in line with what was experienced in Summer '14.
## Update 17th December 2014:
a) This issue was raised initially in November 2014 and two bugs were isolated: W-2419058 (tracked via this known issue), and W-2418056 (tracked via a separate known issue: https://success.salesforce.com/issues_view?id=a1p300000008XJM).
b) W-2418056 was addressed in "WINTER '15 PATCH 13.0".
c) W-2419058 is believed to address any slow change sets that started to run slow in Winter '15 and continue to be slow even after W-2418056 was fixed, which indicates that they might be slow due to the code path that will be reviewed via W-2419058.
d) Customers are suggested to contact Support if the issue persists after this known issue is marked as Fixed.
