Managed Solution conflict RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Friends ,

    We export Managed solutions from Dev environment and import them into Other environments for Testing.

    Has any one faced the issues like below in Managed solution deployments ?

    Case 1 :

    A field is placed as a first row in a section on Lead form.

    When solution is imported to Test environment , the field is moved to last row in the same section ?

    Case 2:

    Visible by default is unchecked for two fields on Account form in Dev env , but still those fields are visible on Account form in Target Environment ?Shouldn't the new managed solution override old solution's customizations ?

  • When you add new elements to a form that is to be merged, we recommend that you include your new elements within new container elements (tabs or sections). Additions to any container will be appended to the end of the container. For example, fields added to a section will be positioned at the end of the section. It is expected that a customizer installing a solution will then modify the form to re-arrange elements after it is installed.

  • Hi Niraj,

    Thanks for the response!

    The field in question is an existing field , it is moved from the middle row of the container to the first row in DEV.

    But when deployed , it comes to the last row.Not only that fields which are hidden in Dev are visible in Target environment !

  • Are there other solutions installed on target environment which updated the same form?

    As mentioned in documentation if there are conflicts for a field It moves additions to end to container. That's why its recommended to add new fields in new containers i.e. Sections\tabs.
