Known Issues

  1. More validations needed on front end side
  2. Error handling needed. Right now there is no way to check if a component is added in changeset properly or not. It always shows success message
  3. File input required validation needed
  4. Few variables may not be useful or can be removed
  5. Getting Changeset Id and Confirmation token is from User Input. There seems to be no way to get this dynamically right now.
  6. Delete functionality is not given in this tool for now.
  7. CSV file format must be same as given in demo file and columns must be in given sequences only
  8. This tool is tested on classic salesforce only so far. Not sure how it will work on lightning UI. Need to do couple of changes to support lightning UI
  9. All names must be exact same as appear in salesforce (Case Sensitives)
  10. In Display output table, it does not show “__c” in object/field names
