  • (2022-09-27) Dipa Bhattacharjee: This generates faulty package.xml
  • (2022-09-09) Will M: Seems like it still doesn't work for Custom Fields. The field names were present in the XML but no attributes.
  • (2020-10-15) Kyle Handley: Good idea, some bugs.
  • (2020-09-03) Maggie Alberts: Unfortunately, I didn't even get a valid XML file, much less a valid package. I just had 1 Custom Object, 12 Custom fields and 1 Process Builder. The XML was not well-formed, the tags were not right and the API names were not used.
  • (2020-07-29) Subhash Atluri: This is good
  • (2019-09-17) Toufik: Hello The add-on is missing multi-language support : for instance, when you download a package.xml in french, the type name for Apex classes is ClasseApex instead of ApexClass It seems also that it doesn't download profiles into the package file Thanks
  • (2019-09-05) Patrick Visniewski: it doesn't work for custom fields or record types basically it created a generic section for each and just listed the dev/api name for each but lacked all object reference so the download of metadata skipped them completely So for example a change set with a field named "Trade" on multiple different objects just resulted in this, which failed completely because it has no information about which objects the fields are on <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata"> <types> <members>Trade</members> <members>Trade</members> <members>Trade</members> <members>Trade</members> <members>Trade</members> <members>Trade</members> <members>Trade</members> <members>Trade</members> <members>Trade</members> <members>Trade</members> <name>CustomField</name> </types> <version>44.0</version> </Package>
  • (2019-08-13) Huilong “Eddy” Zhuo: The download button work only in classic but not in lightning platform. Thank you for creating this tool for us developers!
  • (2019-08-09) Maciej Szymczak: This is great!
  • (2019-07-15) Jay Martinez: No button
  • (2019-05-11) Chirag Joshi: First of button does not appear automatically, one have to click the extension icon and then again move the page, second the field name object name are wrong in package file which is generating an error, so basically useless
  • (2019-03-08) Yi Tan: The concept is really good. However, I can't find button anywhere on the inbound change set page after I installed the extension. Please instruct how to use it
  • (2019-01-24) Mark Liu: This is awesome... Thank you!!

    Hi, I am getting a malformed header when attemtping to use the package. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata": " <types> Should be <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata"> <types>
  • (2019-08-12, v:5.0.0) Sanne Taymans: Button does not appear in Lightning
    I added the extension, but the button wouldn't appear in the Lightning Set Up. After a bit I realized I should check Classic, and it does appear there. Is this a known limitation? Thanks
  • (2019-06-04, v:4.0.0) Martin Hurst: Re: Download Salesforce Change Set package.xml
    I downloaded this plugin on chrome and login into my Salesforce org and went to my change set page but there is no Download button. Do I need to do anything else to make it appear on the Salesforce Change Set page? Thanks. Martin
  • (2019-05-31, v:4.0.0) James LaCour: Package XML does not have Object Name
    Hello, love what the app is doing, couple errors on my end though. 1. When I clicked the Download Package button for my outbound package, it created the package.xml but the object name was not put in front of certain metadata that needed it. For example: This is what I received <members>FieldName__c</members> This is what I needed <members>ObjectName__c.FieldName__c</members> It did this for Workflow Rules, Field Updates, Custom Fields, Record Types, and I think Buttons. 2. I pulled out a Lightning Component. In the package XML, I received AuraComponentBundle but the actual value needed is AuraDefinitionBundle. As a note, I did these test in a full sandbox where the API version was 46 (production is currently 45). When I went to my production org and tried, scenario one worked out perfectly (I didn't try 2).
  • (2019-01-24, v:3.0.0) Mark Liu: Button flashes but then goes away
    Hey Chirag, Thanks so much for building this. One thing I am noticing though is that the Download package.xml button goes away after the page loads. Do you know why this is the case? How can I make it stay on the ChangeSet detail? Also - I've noticed that it is only available on Outbound Changesets and not Inbound Changesets. Mark
