I have a partial copy sandbox created recently and I see that Salesforce loaded around 1.5GB of data from Production. While refreshing partial copy sandbox, I have created a sandbox template including all objects.

My requirement is to just create sandbox with all metadata but no data - just like how it creates a developer sandbox. Because, when data is created in partial copy - it's very incomplete, in terms of our functionality. So I would like to create partial copy sandbox with only metadata and use Ownbackup tool to seed the data what we needed.

Any help on this is really appreciated.

  • If you want a sandbox with no data, I think you'd have to go with a Dev Pro sandbox instead. It's limited to 1GB of data, but this should be sufficient for many use cases where you'd use a Partial Copy Sandbox.

    I think you can create a Sandbox Template with no objects selected, then create your partial sandbox using that template. Mar 1 '21 at 18:15

    Thank you @DavidCheng it worked for me, I am able to create sandbox with no objects template and then I started data seeding with Ownbackup Mar 3 '21 at 12:24
  • @sfdcfox Thank you for replying me on the query, much appreciated. For our company, we already have partial copy available and we don't have Dev Pro sandbox. Mar 3 '21 at 12:25
