    Recently, I was using TWS to "clone" permission set data and noticed a lack of xml content.

    This is all the data provided via a Pull from Salesforce using TWS:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <PermissionSet xmlns="">
        <label>Approve ALL Quotes - Community</label>
        <userLicense>Partner Community</userLicense>

    Meanwhile, the ANT retrieveCode task pulls a file containing 10361 lines which includes tags for:






    I went ahead a loaded a project in Eclipse to handle this deploy, but I'd like to stay away from that resource hog.

      Hi Tyler,

      Thank you for your post.

      Currently, we are working on extending the Declarative Development functionality. In a frame of this work, we will implement sObject Inspector for Permission Sets, and you will have an ability to manage all the settings related to this metadata type in The Welkin Suite IDE like this is already available for Fields Level Security, Fields, and Layouts. This means that all the necessary for you data will be present in TWS.

      This will be done in the nearest months.

        Hello TWS Team,

        I've found this topic as I was searching for the same answer.

        When using MavensMate in the past, I was able to get the full permission set XML with all details, which was useful for documentation and version control.
        When I sync the permissions set using Welkins, I only get the header information as seen in the original post.

        I also noticed that I am then able to 'dig into' the objects in TWS and find all the permission set's FLS, etc - but this still does not allow me to export all of the data.

        Is this at all possible?

        Thank you in advance!

          Hi ohad_idan,

          Thank you for your question.

          Right now The Welkin Suite does not retrieve the full XML of permission sets die to the fact how strangely this is done in SF and how much additional requests are needed in order to get everything needed in the XML file.

          May I please clarify with you the use case for the full XML of permission sets? Would you like to manually edit it or to use for some another purposes?

          Also you can modify your permission sets in the permission sets editor - when you open any permission set in the upper part of the editor you should see the graphical editor with all options available for the permission set configuration. Please let me know if this does not fit your needs.

          Thank you,
