  • The field is mentioned here too. I assume you can see the field under force-app/main/default/objects/Account/fields/ ? Is your source org somehow very old? Does this field contain any useful information on your source org, which means you can't just drop it in your deployment? Commented Apr 29 at 13:43
  • Unfortunately no, it just specifies to track feed history and that is it Commented Apr 30 at 14:57
  • <fields> <fullName>SalesforceCustomer</fullName> <trackFeedHistory>false</trackFeedHistory> </fields> Commented Apr 30 at 14:57
  • it also used in layouts and reports so deployment of those fails Commented Apr 30 at 14:58
  • Can you enable connection finder (help.salesforce.com/…) and deploy

As mentioned in comments, Enabling Connection Finder in an org and try to re-deployment should fix the issue.
