Taking a Snapshot

Updated 1 week ago by Copado Solutions

A Snapshot is a full backup of the selected metadata types into a repository/branch.

To take a snapshot, follow the steps below:

  1. Select an existing Git Snapshot.
  2. Click on Create Snapshot Now.
  3. Optionally, enter a commit message.
As of v11, you have the option to apply Environment Variables and Global Find and Replace rules (YAML) to the snapshot. The YAML file is taken from the deployment flow. If there is no YAML file in the deployment flow,  it will be taken from the environment.

With the frequency set, Copado will create a schedule job and will automatically back up your Salesforce org.

How did we do?
