    Thanks, Ben. Based on the use case, would you expect to also be able to say whether tests should be run? If the goal is to have things ready for a quick deployment, isn't that also required?

    Yes, tests need to be run in order for a validation to be available as a Quick Deploy. I don't think the option to specify if tests should be run is relevant to this, since a Validate would almost always be a situation where you're wanting tests to run.

    I'd like to note that issue #320 Deployment - Run Specified Tests can also be applied to Validations, but for now having it Run All Tests would be sufficient for me.

    Thanks, Ben. That's what I figured but wanted to clarify so I don't deliver something that doesn't address the full desired use case. I agree that #320 is related, though I'll likely address this one first since it's a fairly common workflow scenario. I need to finish up my work on resource bundle interop but should be able to put this into a relatively near-term release.

    Any update on when (if) this feature will be available any time soon? This would be really helpful for us since we often need to validate a deployment in advance when we go into production.

    Thanks!

    Nothing to report at this point, but looks like this is something that quite a few people would like to see, for sure. Let me wrap up my current work-in-progress and I'll see if I can add this.
