Trying to convert a managed extension package to SFDX but I've run into a problem. I've converted the project using
sfdx force:mdapi:retrieve and sfdx force:mdapi:convert
If we say the base managed package has a namespace of BASE and the extension managed package a namespace of EXT.
I created a new scratch org with the namespace EXT and manually installed the base managed package (BASE).
All good so far.
Now the base managed packages has an object, say BASE__AnObject__c, and the extension managed package source code wants to add a field to it called say EXT__SomeField__c. The sfdx:force:mdapi:retrieve and convert generated an objects folder like following
When I do an sfdx:force:source:push I get an error
Error force-app/main/default/objects/BASE__AnObject__c/BASE__AnObject__c.object-meta.xml Must specify a non-empty label for the CustomObject
That file currently contains
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <CustomObject xmlns="http://soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata"> <enableEnhancedLookup>false</enableEnhancedLookup> </CustomObject>
I've tried filling out content in the object xml but it doesn't work and I think it's the wrong approach. I know for a standard object the that object-meta.xml wouldn't exist so I tried removing it but the sfdx force:source:push complains about it being missing.
Any suggestions on how to get the source to deploy would be appreciated.
