I want to move the customize civicrm from development to production. But the problem is that if it goes in production then how can I customize again?

  • you probably need to explain what you mean by 'customize' - do you mean that you added some Custom Fields, or Activity Types, or that you hacked core, or something else? – petednz - fuzion Oct 19 '18 at 21:28
  • Yes I added some custom field. – Dipak Giri Oct 21 '18 at 5:40
  • Do you have a Production version already or is this for the initial deployment? in terms of 'how do i customise again' and eg if you mean creating Custom Fields, Tags etc, then best is to create on both systems to ensure you keep all your ids in synch – petednz - fuzion Oct 22 '18 at 3:15
  • should I create a custom field or create a extension? – Dipak Giri Oct 22 '18 at 6:24
  • I can't answer that - i really don't understand what your situation is and what you need to achieve. – petednz - fuzion Oct 22 '18 at 8:29

Assuming you did your customizations in an extension you would install the extension on production. If you then want continue updating your customizations in your extension you can do so on test, and then issue a new release of your extension.

The Upgrader (check https://docs.civicrm.org/dev/en/latest/extensions/civix/#generate-upgrader) can help you to manage what needs to happen on a new installation.
