Purpose is to save time, I've been reading about Trailforce - templates created from one org for different customizable orgs (if I understand it right, but that seems like a complicated way with creating/linking all the TMO,TSO,LMO,LMA)... Is there a different solution to my question ?

  • Are you an end-user (customer) of Salesforce or an ISV?

  • ...and hot off the presses, you can clone some sandboxes in Winter '23: help.salesforce.com/s/…

It depends on the type of org you're creating. For Developer Edition and Scratch Orgs, you always start fresh from a default template. For Sandboxes, you can use SandboxInfo to create a Sandbox from any other Sandbox or the Production Org that is attached to the Sandbox to be created. SFDX can do this for you when you use force:org:create. The Trialforce templates are only for orgs that will be become standalone subscriber orgs if the client subscribes beyond the trial period.

  • Thanks for your answer, but what would be option for me, if the purpose was to get around the expiration date on Partner Developer Org ?

  • @TomášJurina All non-paid orgs have an expiration by default. You can make the org exempt from deletion, such as registering a namespace or making the org a Dev Hub org.
