I have enabled Enable ExperienceBundle Metadata API and tried to retrieve a Experience Bundle file but obtained an error

ExperienceBundle Metadata API doesn't support the template of Partners1.

I can't find any piece of the information in the documentation about the list of the supported templates which can be retrieved by the ExperienceBundle API.

    What is your template type? Not that vf templates are not supported? Oct 25, 2020 at 18:03
  • I was doing a trailhead module trailhead.salesforce.com/en/content/learn/modules/… and this community has an Aloha Template. But I can't find any information that Aloha or VF template are not supported by ExperienceBundle Metadata API

If you read the Experience Bundle Metadata API documentation carefully,

Developers can quickly update and deploy one or more Lightning communities programmatically using their preferred development tools.

It clearly says Lightning communities. This means aloha or Visualforce communities are not supported.

Maybe the documentation can be made more clear by mentioning that Visualforce communities are not supported!

  • I am new at Experience Cloud, so I don't really know which community templates are Lightning and which are not. Thanks for clarifying this.
