We have an org we use to do demos. When preparing for a demo this morning we discovered that the org had "expired" and we couldn't log in. We were instructed to call support who, after a lengthy wait, said it was a billing issue and sent us to billing. Billing couldn't even find the org (they wanted an org ID - which I couldn't get because I couldn't log in) so they sent us back to tech support. Tech suport this time around said it was a trial Enterprise account and had expired and there really wasn't anything they could do if we didn't want to start paying for it. We thought it was a dev org, not a trial Enterprise org and were instructed to talk to our ISV rep.

While we thought this was a dev org it was actually a Partner Portal org which expires after 1 year. We filed a case on the partner portal and a representative there extended the org for another year. We're still trying to find a more permanent solution so we don't have this issue again next year.

  • Are you able to create a Developer Edition (DE) org, export everything from your Partner Portal org (perhaps using one of these methods and carry on from there? Though I guess the relatively low limits on a DE org might be a problem...

  • That's what we're considering doing right now. The demo org doesn't get heavy use so I don't think the limits will be a problem. Aug 17, 2012 at 21:06
  • How do you get a permanent org? Oct 11, 2022 at 2:20
