Which custom components (custom=created by customer on top of a managed package) of a managed package cannot be retained by the metadata API?

1 Answer 1


Yes you can you.

The wildcard (*) will retrieve only what's relative to your org. But to get things from a managed package, you just need to reference specifically the name of the page layout in your package.xml with the managed package namespace at the front:

   <members>mypckg__myobject__c-My Super Layout</members>
