  1. Nice Article. waiting for you to update the sample code with Visualforce example, I have issues there with displaying errors/Warning message on click of commandLink.

  2. I’ve wondered about push topics rather than platform events for some UI like notification. It depends on what you’re after. A push topic can be scoped by user, so you can notify only the person at the keyboard who’s interested. That said, a general purpose “Some metadata has been deployed” message seems generally useful in the way that any “Something changed” message is useful.

  5. This is great and we just added to our org. I’m now using it (in a batchable finish() ) to update in custom metadata a datetime filter to use in the nth+1 execution of the batchable class.

    One suggestion for the Platform Event MetadataDeployment__e object: Add a field called Context__c , provided in the callback() method so the caller can communicate with the PE subscriber something about the context of why the custom metadata deployment service was invoked. Right now you just have DeploymentId__c, Result__c and implicit owner ‘Automated Process’.

    • Glad your finding it useful! This is a great idea as well. Would you please do me a favor and add it to the GitHub repository as an Issue, I will flag it as an enhancement request. 👍🏻

  6. Great solution as always. I was unable to Deploy to my org using the button. I created an issue for that: https://github.com/afawcett/custommetadataapi/issues/5
