    Hello,


    I recently purchased and installed the Welkin Suite Blaze application for Mac. Within the profile metadata files, I can't seem to find the 'applicationVisibilites' section or 'tabVisibilities' section. Any visibility for that matter seems to be missing. 


    I presume that I have all of the correct system permissions as System Admin (Modify All Data, API Enabled, View Setup and Configuration. and Manage Profiles and Permission Sets.


    Any feedback certainly appreciated and welcomed. 


    Regards,

    Thomas R.

        Hi Thomas,


        Thank you for contacting us on this.


        We have a similar discussion in this topic and the reason that Vladimir described applies to this issue as well.

        In your case, to get an information related to Tab visibility settings, this would be necessary to pull Tabs together with Profiles into your TWS project. At the same time, I want to draw your attention that TWS pulls from Salesforce only changed files or those which are new in your project.


        If you would have any additional or other questions, please let us know. We will be happy to answer them.


        Regards,

        Kate

          Hi Kate,


          Thanks for your prompt reply. I took a look at the other post you shared and it definitely makes sense. 


          Currently what I'm missing from the Profiles is (a) object settings, (b) tab settings. Actually, this is what I need, but everything is missing besides 

          User permissions. I have pulled the object and tab metadata from Salesforce. Is there another object I need to pull in order to retrieve everything in the profiles?


          Thanks again,

          Thomas

            Hi Thomas,

            Thank you for your response.


            You can create a new TWS project and download Profiles and Objects, Tabs, Custom Permissions, and other metadata types that include a required information at the same time. As a result, you will get all the necessary data in your Profiles.

            However, the next time when you will pull updated Profile files from your organization - Salesforce will include into these files an information about files that would be included in this pulling process too. So you could get the profiles with another data.

            At the same time, TWS includes only changed files to the pulling process, so if you would pull Profiles and Objects and there won't be any updates in object files - they won't be included to this pull and, as a result, your Profiles won't contain data about them and other information as well.

            So in general, to keep all the necessary data in Profiles in TWS project requires ongoing updating of all other files, that is really difficult to work on.


            I hope this would help.


            Regards,

            Kate
