Metadata Rules

  • Dark

As of version 4.4.2, CodeScan has a set of Metadata rules.

These rules allow you to scan your settings to make sure that your Org is secure and clean.

To enable downloading metadata for your Salesforce project, you will need to change some settings in your project settings. Keep in mind that the following will only work with code being pulled from Salesforce.

  1. First, open your Salesforce project and navigate to Project Settings > General Settings menu.

  2. Next, click the CodeScan tab on the left to open the CodeScan specific settings and access the CodeScan Cloud Download Types.

  3. The default values will be ApexClass, ApexComponent, ApexPage, ApexTrigger, AuraDefinitionBundle, and LightningComponentBundle. To download all metadata currently checked, you will need to add the following:

    • CustomObject
    • Profile
    • SharingCriteriaRule
    • SharingOwnerRule
    • SharingTerritoryRule
    • Settings
  4. After you have added these pakage types, click on Save button

  5. To re-run the analysis, go to the Overview > Project Settings > General Settings menu. Your metadata files will download and the ruleset will be applied.
