There is an old response from 5 years ago on this. Is there any updates to this process?
I've created a "development", "staging", "production" version of an application. What we are doing now is creating our changes in the development application. Once done, we go into the staging and recreate the fields, etc (in the same order..difficult).
Wondering if there is a way to do this better? Mainly the issue would be field ids being different between apps, such as when a table's listing of fields happens to have different Fids if created out of order. Same issue if something is deleted.
I was looking into the GetSchema, but don't think i can recreate a field (API_AddField) and specify a field id instead of receiving one.
