I notice that the metadata of custom objects (fields, sobjects) that I retrieve from my Dev org using the Org Browser (VS Code) have a
<deprecated>false</deprecated> element in them. The documentation for CustomField simply says
deprecated / boolean / Reserved for future use. Same for CustomObject.
This is, now that
SFDX: Diff File Against Org is broken since almost a month, one more step towards a situation where I cannot in effect compare what I have in my project with what is in the Org. Before this new development I could still do such a comparison using Beyond Compare; but now, when a file is marked different, I don't know if its just the
<deprecated> element or not ...
- Can I just remove the
- Can I do something to stop the
<deprecated>elements from spreading in my code base?
- Can anybody give some useful advice on how to handle this situation?
It seems that a similar thing has happened almost eight years ago: see this post.
