Org Synchronization

 

When you move changes from source org to a production org, the metadata types would be the same. But when you make changes in the production org, there would be inconsistency between the source org and production org.

Org sync helps you compare the differences between the objects, so you can add or delete an object or a metadata type and make sure that both the Orgs are in sync.

Once you start the process of Org sync, you can navigate or work on the rest of the tool and come back to the Org sync to check the Org synchronization status.

Launching Org Sync

  1. Click Sync SFOrgs in the AutoRABIT tool bar.
  2. The following screen is displayed:
  3. Click Get Org Differences.
  4. Enter a label name and choose the source and destination orgs.
  5. Check the Exclude baseline Managed Package changes button if necessary.
