Salesforce packages are completely private to particular salesforce org, unless published or uploaded to AppExchange or any other salesforce org. Packages can be uploaded to any salesforce org to share with others privately or posted on Force.com AppExchange to share publicly.

Uploading Package in Salesforce:

  1. Steps:
    a.Once package is created & components are added to it successfully, next step is to Upload it.
    So fill up all the details as below:Version Name – Enter any desired version name.
    b. Version Number – Enter version number for identifying the package.
    c. Post Install Instructions – Optionally, specify a link to post install instructions for the package. Click URL and enter the details in the text field that appears.
    d. Description – Enter detailed description.
  2. Optionally, enter a password to share the package privately with anyone who has the password. Don’t enter a password if you want to make the package available to anyone on AppExchange and share your package publicly.Capture6
  3. Then we need to specify the requirements. Salesforce automatically selects the requirements it finds. In addition, you can select any other required components from the Package Requirements and Object Requirements sections to notify installers of any requirements for this package.
