I'm trying to figure out how to retrieve Field Audit Trail metadata using the WorkBench, and I'm stumped. I used the WorkBench to deploy a zip file named package-Dev.zip, which contained the following files:
1) A file named Account.object:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <CustomObject xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata"> <historyRetentionPolicy> <archiveAfterMonths>14</archiveAfterMonths> <archiveRetentionYears>10</archiveRetentionYears> <description>Account object field history retention policy -- Dev</description> <gracePeriodDays>0</gracePeriodDays> </historyRetentionPolicy> <fields> <fullName>BillingAddress</fullName> <fullName>City_Mailing_Address_Group__c</fullName> </fields> </CustomObject>
2) A file named package.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata"> <types> <members>Account</members> </types> <version>32.0</version> </Package>
Now I want to use the WorkBench to retrieve the metadata (history retention policy and fields) that I deployed for the account object via package-Dev.zip. What's the XML code that I need to use to retrieve that metadata? I'm not an XML or API programmer, and all of the examples I've found seem to assume that I know more than I do, so I'm lost.
