I have a bunch of apex classes that start with a prefix such as:

  • et4ae5__HelpLinks.cls
  • et4ae5__Manual.cls
  • cwbtool__CodeComparator.cls
  • cwbtool__ConnectionCtrl.cls

How can I ignore anything that starts with et4ae5 and cwbtool? I tried doing et4ae5__* , cwbtool__* and it did not remove them from the comparison list.

    We might need more info. I found this and it says it works the way you wrote it. Can you provide more information?

They will be in deeper folders, so you need to specify correct path either fully or with wild cards:

  1. force-app/main/default/classes/et4ae5__*
  2. **/et4ae5__*

Both of them should work

  • thanks @salesforce-sas. Do you happen to know the syntax for if the files exist on the org and not on the repo? would et4ae5__*.ApexClass work?
