I have created a Custom Metadata Type object (lets say I have called it CMDObject__mdt). I have uploaded all of my configuration records into there but there are 12k records and so I cannot deploy using a wildcard in an ANT package as there is a limit of 10k "items" per metadata call.
So I cam trying to split it into three ANT packages - one with the objects (along with the other items of the package), and then two packages that contain roughly 6k of the records each.
I have trailed through the Salesforce documentation for the custom metadata type here: https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_meta.meta/api_meta/meta_custommetadata.htm#custom_metadata_usage
But I cannot find anything that allow me to single out specific records as the CustomMetadataValue type seems to be directed into a field by field value, rather than record by record.
Deploying these configs via the Custom Metadata Loader is a viable option (that's how I got them there in the first place) but I would rather have deployable packages so that I don't have to install it in production.
Can anyone assist in how I could deploy a specific set of records from within the custom metadata type object via ANT (ANT is preferred but at this point I am open to suggestions other than Custom Metadata Loader).
