On Our production Org we use Partner Community User license;

Now, we are working on the migration to sfdx, and when creating scratch orgs, we don't have Partner Community license:

Scratch org company information - User Licenses: enter image description here

For information, community feature is enabled in my project-scratch-def.json file, any idea how to get Partner Community User license in scratch orgs?

Thank you;

  • On a tangent, I'm not sure the DX development model does much for Communities, since all the metadata you can get for a Community is an inscrutable binary blob.

  • @CharlesT thank you, yes sfdx doesn't offer mush options for communities or portals, but for the moment, i just need a Partner Community License for my tests purposes (Need profile with this license)

This may not be the right solution for everyone, we have found in our organization that if you make your Scratch Org a Developer Edition org by putting "edition": "Developer" in your Scratch Org Definition JSON then you should have some Partner Community Licenses available.

  • Thank you for your response, i will try with Developer Edition settings, but i hope find a better solution

Use below configuration:

  "orgName": "Your Org Name",
  "edition": "Enterprise",
  "features": ["Communities", "CustomerCommunityPlusLogin", "ForceComPlatform"],
  "settings": {
    "orgPreferenceSettings": {

Replace CustomerCommunityPlusLogin with any Customer/Partner Community License name like CustomerCommunityPlus, GoldPartner, PartnerCommunityLogin etc.

  • This answer ist not accurate. CustomerCommunityPlusLogin is not a valid feature. Jul 1, 2020 at 16:18
