Windows - Changes to object metadata not picked up in Build (F5)

    When attempting to update the Metadata for an object (custom or standard), it is possible to make the changes in the IDE, for example adding a field. However, when you try to Build with F5, the IDE reports that "Changed Files were not found" even though one of the objects metadata has been changed and saved.

    I then select "Deploy Objects" from the right click menu of the Project itself. If there are no errors in the metadata, it deploys to the salesforce org correctly.

    If there are errors in the object's metadata, the deploy process will return an error that the deployment failed but there are no indications about what failed.

    It seems that the Build process is not checking to see if any objects' metadata changed or not when determinining if a build is necessary. However, the Deploy process does seem to determine that the object metadata has changed and it tries to deploy the object (with changes) to the org and throws an error.

    I reported this under Help->Report Bug about 10 minutes prior to making this post but didn't copy down the Unique ID, sorry.

      Hi Dave,

      Thank you for this post and for the bug report with the attached log file.

      You are right, you can update your project files on your Organization using the Build or Deploy Object processes. Each of them works with the separate metadata types. Here are the detailed information related to these options:

      1) Build project:;

      2) Deploy objects:

      The reason for the failed deployment process for objects isn't displayed in TWS UI, and we are going to implement this functionality in the future versions of The Welkin Suite IDE.

      Currently, our developers are investigating the errors that are present in your log file.

      I'll keep you updated when we will have any result on this investigation.

      Thank you,
