sfdx-browserforce-plugin

sfdx plugin for browser automation

Build Status

Unlike the Scratch Org Definition Configuration which can only be used on the creation of a scratch org (sfdx force:org:create -f config/scratch-def.json), the Browserforce Configuration allows to "shape" any org, (e.g. scratch org, sandbox or production org) with similar preferences and unofficial preferences that are not (yet) available in the Scratch Org Definition Configuration or as Metadata (sfdx browserforce:apply -f config/setup-admin-login-as-any.json -u myOrg@example.com).

Further benefits:

  • comfortable configuration using JSON Schema (similar to the Scratch Org Definition Configuration)
  • idempotency of the apply command only applies what's necessary and allows re-execution (concept similar to terraform)
  • browser automation powered by Puppeteer (Chromium)
  • implement your own custom preferences (a.k.a. plugins; to be improved)

Installation

There are several different methods to install sfdx-browserforce-plugin:

# as an sfdx plugin globally
sfdx plugins:install sfdx-browserforce-plugin
 
# or standalone globally
npm install --global sfdx-browserforce-plugin
 
# or standalone locally (as a dependency in your Node.js project)
npm install --save-dev sfdx-browserforce-plugin

Usage

Depending on your choice of installation, you can find the browserforce namespace:

# globally in the sfdx cli
sfdx browserforce
 
# globally in the sfdx-browserforce-plugin executable
sfdx-browserforce-plugin browserforce
 
# locally in the sfdx-browserforce-plugin executable (npx is awesome!)
npx sfdx-browserforce-plugin browserforce
$ sfdx-browserforce browserforce -h
browser automation
 
USAGE
  $ sfdx-browserforce-plugin browserforce:COMMAND
 
COMMANDS
  browserforce:apply  apply a plan from a plan file or remote state
  browserforce:plan   retrieve state and generate plan file

Both the browserforce:apply and browserforce:plan commands expect a config file and a target username or alias for the org.

Example

To enable Setup -> Security Controls -> Login Access Policies -> Administrators Can Log in as Any User, the config file (here: ./config/setup-admin-login-as-any.json) should look like this:

"$schema""https://raw.githubusercontent.com/amtrack/sfdx-browserforce-plugin/v1.2.0/src/plugins/schema.json",
{
  "settings": {
    "security:" {
      "loginAccessPolicies": {
        "administratorsCanLogInAsAnyUser": true
      }
    }
  }
}

Tip: If you use Visual Studio Code, you can leverage tab completion to build the config (powered by the JSON Schema).

Next apply the config:

$ sfdx browserforce:apply -f ./config/setup-admin-login-as-any.json --targetusername myOrg@example.com
  Applying plan file ./config/setup-admin-login-as-any.json to org myOrg@example.com
  logging in... done
  [Security] retrieving state... done
  [Security] changing 'loginAccessPolicies' to '{"administratorsCanLogInAsAnyUser":true}'... done
  logging out... done
