I'm using my dev org for testing proposes and It's taking my many time to delete objects, data, rules and so on.

It is possible to reset this account to original state?

  • Your best option in a dev org is what Josh suggested. If it's too much work I'd rather just create a new org; they are free :)

    If you create a new DE you can still use the same username if you change the old DE user's username first. I rename the old DE username something like [email protected] and then always keep my current DE having the same base username like [email protected]. Commented Jan 5, 2013 at 11:04

You might look at using the Force.com Migration Tool to "undeploy" via destructiveChanges.xml, see more information here:



You don't need to - you can just sign up for a new Developer Edition account. You don't need to use the email address as the user name - for example, I have a user name of [email protected] with the email address of [email protected]. Don't forget that when you initially sign up with an email address that has to be your username - you can change it subsequently however.

Notwithstanding that, using a gmail account to manage multiple accounts is quite cool - gmail has a feature that you can put +anything after the name and it treats it as the same address - eg if my email address is [email protected], I can send emails to [email protected] and they will go to the right address. Makes it easy to manage multiple logins.

    I found that after signing up for a couple of different developer accounts using different emails, they all suddenly got disabled. Not sure why, but perhaps Salesforce didn't like me having several dev accounts ....
