About Parallel Processor

The Parallel Processor feature allows you to configure POST requests to be fired before or after a deployment request is triggered to Salesforce. For example, to send notifications to the slack channel post a CI Job is triggered.

Where can I find this feature in the AutoRABIT application?

When you're triggering a new CI job, look for the Configure Parallel Processor function under the Deploy > On Successful Deployment section.

Important Note: This feature is currently available for the following CI Jobs:

  1. Deploy from Salesforce Org

  2. Deploy from Salesforce Org with a Version Control backup

  3. Deploy from Version Control

  4. Deploy SFDX source from Version Control

  5. Install an Unlocked Package from a Version Control Branch
