Connecting and syncing Salesforce Orgs
The Deployment screen is best viewed when the zoom setting is set to 80% on your Chrome/Firefox browser.
The org synchronization provides a mechanism to export single data, or all content items, from a source to a target Salesforce org effortlessly, thereby establishing consistency among data.
When you move changes from a source org to a production org, the metadata types would be the same. But when you make changes in the production org, there would be an inconsistency between the source org and production org. Org synchronization helps you compare the differences between the metadata types, so you can add or delete metadata types and ensure that both the orgs are in sync.
To perform org synchronization, follow the below steps:
- 1.Log in to your ARM account.
- 2.Click on the
Deploymenttile on the left side of the screen.
- 3.Go to the
Org Synchronization Historytab.

Batch size for other Componentsto retrieve records. So, the default size for the profile is 500, and for other components is 2000. You can modify it as per your requirement. The bulk retrieve option helps run large jobs that exceed normal processing limits – you can deploy up to 10000 files at once or a maximum size of 14Mb. Using batch size, you can process records in batches to stay within platform limits. If you have a lot of records, processing records through batches is the best option.
