I just installed the Force.com IDE because I needed to search my Apex code and workflow rules (which you're unable to do in Salesforce).

I noticed the Case Comment workflow component isn't being synced to my machine. How do I bring down the Case Comment data so I can search on it?

Case Comment is missing

    Can you share the content of your package.xml file? – Adrian Larson Aug 29 '16 at 16:58
  • @AdrianLarson I'd prefer not to share the entire content of that file. Is there a specific element(s) you would like me to look for? – Justin Helgerson Aug 29 '16 at 17:05

    I think specifically the Flow section. – Adrian Larson Aug 29 '16 at 17:06

You may want to manually edit your package.xml file and use wildcard characters. The Flow* and Workflow types are what you're interested in here. I'm not using Eclipse personally, but I think ensuring it contains this snippet should work (parent tags shown so you can see where to put it):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Package xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata">

* The Flow type will get you Visual Workflows and Process Builder, which might also be relevant here

    Thanks for your help so far. I checked my packages.xml file and I already have the wildcard Flow and Workflow sections that you posted (version 36.0 instead of 37.0, but I'm guessing that's not the culprit). – Justin Helgerson Aug 29 '16 at 18:45

Eclipse will sync many metadata types, but not all of them. Please use the Force.com Migration Tool for access to all entities.

  • Probably worth adding a little more detail here. – Adrian Larson Aug 30 '16 at 18:05
