Thought i'd post this here given we are no longer in the preview window, whenever I request the MultiLevelMasterDetail feature in my scratch org definition file. Im greeted with

"ERROR running force:org:create: MultiLevelMasterDetail is not a valid Features value."

My Devhub is on Spring '20 Patch 10.4 and i'm running the latest version of sfdx on my mac.

Version: sfdx-cli/7.47.0-0e5d18732f darwin-x64 node-v10.15.3

  "orgName": "Buy Ethereum", 
  "edition": "Enterprise",
  • Do you have the most recent version of the CLI?

  • Really weird... This looks like a known issue. if I were you, I would open a case with Salesforce. I have the most recent CLI version and still get the same error.

  • That was also my initial assumption, thought I'd post it up incase I'd overlooked the obvious! I will leave it a few hours just incase someone has an epiphany or is able to confirm it as an issue. Failing that I will raise it with Salesforce.

I tried creating with the below command:

sfdx force:org:create -s -f config/project-scratch-def.json -a multi-level-org

the definition file is

"orgName": "Multi Level org",
"edition": "Developer",
"hasSampleData": false,
"settings": {
    "lightningExperienceSettings": {
        "enableS1DesktopEnabled": true
    "securitySettings": {
        "passwordPolicies": {
            "enableSetPasswordInApi": true
    "mobileSettings": {
        "enableS1EncryptedStoragePref2": false
"features": ["MultiLevelMasterDetail"]
  • this didn't work for me.

  • Agreed this doesn't work for me either, @Abhijith out of curiosity are you running the latest version of sfdx? If you type sfdx into the terminal it should print you the version number directly underneath.
