Nimble AMS releases are in step with Salesforce; we recommend joining the Release Readiness Group in the Salesforce Success Community. There you will find dates, sneak previews, webinars, and lots of other great resources to prepare for the latest seasonal release from Salesforce.
It is Salesforce best practice to make sure your Apex tests are always passing in your production org. If they are not, you will not be able to deploy changesets. We will upgrade an org with failing Apex tests and ensure parity of the tests before and after upgrade if there are failures.
Nimble AMS is more than just one package, as an if you log in to your org and go to Setup and then enter "Installed Packages" in the Quick Find box you will see multiple Nimble AMS packages. When upgrades your org, we often upgrade multiple packages in order to keep it running smoothly. So here is an overview of some of the different packages you may see:
- Nimble AMS—This is the largest package. It is all of the code for Staff View and the foundation for the other packages that make up a complete solution.
- Nimble Communities—Nimble Communites, also called is everything that makes a Nimble Community special. It is the framework we provide for accepting payments in communities, managing memberships, selling merchandise, and much more.
- Nimble Programs—This package adds the ability to manage Programs or Continuing Education Units (CEUs) in Community Hub and Staff view.
- Appeals—This is a small, unmanaged package, that adds the Appealsobject and its related fields and functionality.
- Accounting—This package adds AR Statements to your implementation of and allows for greater customization of them, Invoices, and Order Confirmations.
- Speakers—This small, unmanaged package adds the Speakers Object and its fields to your implementation of Nimble AMS.
- Metrics—Metrics is a package that helps monitor and manage your licences, Community Logins, and Data Limits.
- You may see other packages installed. If you have any questions on the pages, contact your customer support manager.
Sandboxes are a great tool the Lightning Platform provides. They are copies of your production org that you can use for developing and testing new solutions. To see your sandboxes, log in to your org, go to Setup, and search for
Sandboxes in the quick find box. The common sandboxes you will see are:
- Staging—Staging sandboxes are a place for developing and testing new solutions. Every production org should have a production sandbox to try out new workflow, flows, code, and other solutions.
- Development—You may do so much development you need a development org. This org is a less polished place for trying out new things, before moving them to staging for testing and training, and then up to production.
- Upgrade—Upgrade sandboxes are used to test new versions of Nimble AMS in your environment. We refresh these sandboxes before each seasonal release and then upgrade the upgrade sandbox to confirm that everything is still working smoothly.
