    ETCopyData

    NOTE: This is a fork of the original project of ETCopyData.

    SFDX Plugin to populate your orgs with data extracted from multiple sObjects.

    Version NPM

    Install

    Install as plugin

    sfdx plugins:install @jfischer/etcopydata

    You'll be prompted that this, like any plugin, is not officially code-signed by Salesforce. If that's annoying, you can whitelist it

    Install from source

    1. Install the SDFX CLI.
    2. Clone the repository: git clone https://github.com/j-fischer/ETCopyData.git
    3. Change directory cd ETCopyData
    4. Install npm modules: npm install --production
    5. Link the plugin: sfdx plugins:link .

    Documentation

    This plugin is highly configurable with a JSON file named ETCopyData.json located on the current folder you are using when running this plugin. If the file does not exist, the plugin creates the file before erroring out, this allows you to get the bare bones of the file and modify it.

    sObjectsData

    Sample: Minimum fields required

    You must provide the name of the sObject

    {
    	"name": "Account"
    }

    Fields

    This is the structure for each sObject

    Field Default Data Type Description
    name N/A String Required field. SObject API name rather than the label, which means that custom sObjects end with __c.
    deleteDestination false Boolean If true will delete all records of the object prior to importing the data.
    ignoreFields null String[] List of fields to ignore for every sObject, these list will be combined with the global ignoreFields field.
    maxRecords -1 Integer Overrides the global maxRecordsEach field.
    orderBy null String For exports, determines the order for the records that are exported.
    twoPassReferenceFields null String[] For imports, lists the fields that need to be set using a separate update as they refer an SObject that is not loaded yet.
    twoPassUpdateFields null String[] For imports, lists the fields that need to be set using a separate update request along with the twoPassreferenceFields.
    where null String Restrict which records are be exported.

    Fields

    This is the structure for each metadata sObject

    Field Default Data Type Description
    name N/A String Required field. SObject API name rather than the label.
    fieldsToExport N/A String[] Required field. List of fields that will be exported for each metadata sObject.
    matchBy9 N/A String Required field. What makes the two metadata sObjects the same?
    orderBy null String For exports, determines the order for the metadata records that are exported.
    where null String Restrict which records are be exported.

    Migrating Custom Settings

    The tool supports the migration of Custom Settings. To handle the proper mapping of possible owners (User, Profile) of Hierarchical Custom Settings, it is important to to have the following configuration for the metadata objects added to the ETCopyData.json file:

    "sObjectsMetadata": [
        {
            "name": "User",
            "fieldsToExport": "FirstName,LastName,Email,Id",
            "matchBy": "Email"
        },
        {
          "name": "Profile",
          "fieldsToExport": "Name,Id",
          "matchBy": "Name"
        }
    ]
    

    References

    ETCopyData fully supports importing references between SObjects, both Lookup and Parent/Child relationships.

    ETCopyData determines an import order, based on the Lookup and Parent/Child relationships that are exported and not flagged as twoPassReferenceFields. It sorts the list of SObjects using the following algorithm:

    1. the SObjects that have no relationships to any other SObjects
    2. the SObjects that only have relationships to group 1
    3. the SObjects that have relationships to group 1 and/or 2
    4. etc.

    ETCopyData imports the data for the SObjects in that order, keeping track of the mapping between Ids in the source set and their equivalent Ids the target system. When importing a reference field, it can immediately set the correct Id in the target system.

    If your data model is tree-like, no additional configuration is needed to automatically import all references. If your data model contains cyclic references or self references, additional configuration using the 'twoPassReferenceField' setting. An example cyclic reference is SObject A having a lookup field for SObject B and SObject B having a lookup field for SObject A. An example self reference is SObject A having a lookup field for SObject A.

    If your data model contains one of these types of references, you will get the following error during import:

    Deadlock determining import order, most likely caused by circular or self reference, configure those fields as twoPassReferenceFields

    Configuring twoPassReferenceFields can be automated, but currently is a manual process. In general, if you have two SObjects that reference each other through a single Lookup relationship in each SObject, you only need to flag one of those fields as a twoPassReferenceField.

    As an example, assume you have the following SObject and fields:

    • SObject Ac: field RefBc of type Lookup(B__c)
    • SObject Bc: field RefAc of type Lookup(A__c)

    If your dataset contains 1000 Ac records and 10 Bc records, the optimal configuration is to configure Bc.RefAc as twoPassReferenceField. On import, ETCopyData will execute the following steps:

    1. import all records for SObject Bc (keeping the RefAc field null), keeping track of the mapping between Id in the source set and the Id in the target system
    2. import all records for SObject Ac, setting the RefBc field correctly using the mapping, keeping track of the mapping the record Ids
    3. revisit all SObject Bc records that have a value for RefAc, and set the RefA__c field to the mapped Id

    Notes:

    1. Because the data in the org gets modified, you are not allowed to use a production org. You can only use a scratch org or a sandbox!
    2. You must explicitly specify which standard sObjects you want to process because there are way too many standard sObjects and not a good way to determine which ones are useful. But for custom sObjects, you can specify that you want all of them.
    3. These records will not be imported but will need to exist in the destination org, so their record ids can be used when loading the data.
    4. These are some fields that are a good idea to ignore: OwnerId, CreatedBy, CreatedDate, CurrencyIsoCode.
    5. Not exporting all the records could have negative implications, especially if those records are required later. For example, not exporting master records (on a master/detail relationship) for detail records that you do actually export.
    6. Not deleting the existing records could end up with tons of records if the operation is run multiple times while testing, or have duplicate records in the destination sObject.
    7. If you are getting timeout errors while records are being deleted, or imported, you could increase the polling timeout.
    8. If you are getting out-of-memory errors, you can increase the amount of memory used by NodeJS (the engine used to run SFDX plugins) by setting the environment variable NODE_OPTIONS to --max-old-space-size=8192 to reserve 8GB memory.
    9. The metadata records in the source org and the destination org will have different IDs, but they should have similar characteristic that can be used for mapping. For example, for users, you can use the email, for profiles use their names, for record types use their developer name, etc. When dealing with Recordtypes that have same DeveloperName for different sObjects, the matchBy entry can be set as "SobjectType, DeveloperName".
