Handling Umbraco Events After Deploy Operations

I had a question from an partner Umbraco raised for me this week, that's available at this forum topic . They had some code running in a notification handler running when dictionary items were saved, and found this wasn't firing when the item was saved following an Umbraco Deploy operation. I responded that this is actually expected behaviour - as Deploy supresses events being fired on individual save and publish events when transferring items. This implementation decision was made I understand for performance reasons. In the back-office, the usual case for a save of an item is one-at-a-time, but with a deployment, there could be hundreds of updates within an operation. However, what if you do want to run some code on the save of some Umbraco data, even if this is happening as part of a Deploy operation? There's an option here using cache refresher notifications. Not all events are suppressed by Umbraco Deploy - some that are batched up and fired after the deploy o

What Content Broke My Restore?

Just something I want to keep track of... From a support issue with Umbraco Deploy on Umbraco 8, a customer was getting a failure when restoring, which stemmed from a JSON serialization failure when generating the Umbraco Deploy artifact. It was a bulk restore though, so tricky to figure out which content was causing the problem. And as this serialization is happening in the upstream environment being restored from, a local instance and debugging doesn't help. This hacky code dumped in a view was useful to find out:
