Custom metadata types provide a critical new tool for application lifecycle management (ALM) and compliance for your custom app configuration layer. Until recently, developers built app configurations in custom objects (or custom settings). Managing and migrating these configurations across various environments, and tracking and validating changes, required the development of sophisticated custom tooling or complicated manual processes. Join us to learn how to use custom metadata types to manage configuration changes and automate migration, eliminating the need for expensive validation processes. This will be demonstrated by a working example from a Force.com customer.
