We in TrueSalesSoft do not like Apache Ant because we need to configure it using xml. It looks out of date. The question is how to deploy the Salesforce project without Apache Ant?
We can use Metadata API with sfdx.
Step 1: You need to setup a connection
To see a list of existing connections you can use the following command:
To add a new connection you can use:
sfdx force:auth:web:login -r https://test.salesforce.com -a <your_alias>
Step 2: You can deploy the project
To deploy the project directory you can use the following command:
sfdx force:mdapi:deploy -d <directory> -u <username or alias>
You can use -c to run validation without deployment.
Step 3: Check the results
You can use <job_id> to check the results of the deployment process with the following command:
sfdx force:mdapi:deploy:report -u <your_alias> -i <job_id>
