Compare Record data values and object metadata in Salesforce

Image from store Record and Metadata Comparator for Salesforce
Description from store Compare Object Metadata and it's record values in Salesforce (now supports Lightning!) and see all differences in just four clicks! Credits: 1. sorenkrabbe for his extension "salesforce-inspector" available @ https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/salesforce-inspector/aodjmnfhjibkcdimpodiifdjnnncaafh I have used the code shared by him to improvise and develop this extension. I would share the code of this extension on github soon. 2. Maninder Singh for enabling the extension to work in Lightning -https://www.linkedin.com/in/mansinghinder/ This extension compares any two objects or its records (could be from same org or different orgs) and highlights all the differences found. It can show you the following - Which fields are missing in target org. - Which fields are missing in source org - which fields have metadata difference (change in formula, datatype , required etc.) - which fields have data value mismatch Please watch the video tutorial available @ http://youtu.be/mkarbbYWveY to understand the exact functionality and its uses. Steps to compare Object Metadata: 1. Open up the custom object definition or it's list view or any of it's record in salesforce. This is your source record. Click on the extension icon and then click on the "Select Source Record" button. 2. After that, open up the custom definition of the same object or it's list view or the record (could be from same org or different org). This is your target record. Click on the extension icon and then click on the "Select Target record" button. 3. The extension would create a popup and in that show you all the differences that were found. Steps to compare Record Values: 1. open any record from a standard/custom object in one org. This is your source record. Click on the extension icon and then click on the "Select Source Record" button. 2. After that, open up any other record for the same object (could be from same org or different org). This is your target record. Click on the extension icon and then click on the "Select Target record" button. 3. The extension would create a popup and in that show you all the differences that were found. Do recommend the extension with you friends and colleagues if you like it. Also, if you like the extension, please don't forget to Rate it on the Chrome Extension Webstore. Feedback/Suggestions/Ideas/Comments most welcome. Thanks again and I hope this extension saves your time and makes you more productive! For any queries: [email protected]

  • (2023-05-28) Yehoshua {Jeff} Krakowski: used to work but it stopped happy to give great reveiw once fixed
  • (2022-04-07) J B: This is the only working extension I could find that would allow dumping of all the fields and data for an object. I then simply copy and paste into Excel for review. Very helpful! Salesforce Inspector should allow this also, but the extension is always disabled (grayed out) for me.
  • (2022-03-21) Rahul Rawat: The extension is very useful. Please add an option to save the results in excel and pdf format preserving the original content.
  • (2021-11-05) Safae ELBARKKOURI: Great extension! easy to use and efficient!! Just a question : it does only compare fields? I need to compare all metadata, including process builders and validation rules...

    extension no longer works
  • (2023-01-26, v: Christoph Knoch: not working in classic or lightning
    I used this for many years but it's a while ago. I currently can't select the Record for comparison. I always get as result that I do compare the same rectrod ID (trying it on the User Object), is it possible that this gool Add In is not working with My domain activated? Any chance to get it running again
  • (2022-06-28, v: Shannon Clark: Was working in Lightning and Classic, now only in Classic
    I was previously able to use in either Classic or Lightning but now can only get it to work in Classic. In lightning, the extension always asks for a source record, will then parse it, but when attempting to select the target record, will again ask for the source record. :( How can I correct this so that the extension once again works in Lightning? Nothing has changed on my end and I'm using the same browser as prior.
  • (2022-06-02, v: Chris Picking: Add Salesforce Domain
    Can you please add the salesforce.mil and crmforce.mil domains to the domains the extension can use? This would greatly help when working in the .mil environment. Or can you share your source code so that I could make my own private version of the extension that works with those domains?
  • (2022-04-21, v: Javier Maldonado: Error using the extension
