While it appears that Salesforce supports backups of data & configs, it also appears that a complete backup is not possible. Have I misunderstood the meaning of this page?
For example, does this mean:
- Using Salesforce's Metadata API, that the components referenced above can not be retrieved or deployed with it - but there are other ways to download all data & configs outside of Salesforce's Metadata API.
- The components referenced above are ONLY accessible manually regardless method unless HTTP is used as a method of documenting and "auto-manually" deploying these components' settings; by "auto-manually" I mean that a bot is scripted to access the related points of configuration to configure the platform as if they were a human.
