    Let's say I am not going to deploy the dev/stg database to prod.

    In dev, I create a new custom profile field in "Basic profile" called "Organization" through the browser. That updated the ContentViewConfig.config file in App_Data.

    In prod, I create a new Sitefinity site, and then deploy my source code. I also deploy ContentViewConfig.config file.

    Unfortunately, doing so will not bring back the "Organization" field in Administration | Users | Manage Profile types | Basic profile. Hence my question about how to go about deploying custom user profile fields.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    In Sitefinity 4.x/5.x/6.x configurations and database are closely related and basically you need to have entire App_Data and the database of the project to be able to use the custom fields created in the development environment. The information for the user profile files is saved in the ContentViewConfig.config and in the database. I would suggest you to review the following documentation:

    http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/documentationarticles/user-guide/website-content/adding-custom-fields-to-content-items/creating-a-new-custom-field
