    Does Welkin Suite have any MetaData API capabilities?

    There are some bugs in the Tooling API that Salesforce need to iron out before we can fully commit to using it and as far as our UAT for the Welkin Suite has gone, we have noticed that the Welkin Suite uses the Tooling API but saw no options to switch to the MetaData API.

    Impressed by the IDE as a whole though! Good speaking to you at Dreamforce and we hope to use more of the application in the future.

      Hi Luke,

      Thank you for your feedback and for the interesting question!

      In our work we use MetaData, Tooling, and Partner API in complex with each other. Main emphasis is placed on Tooling API.

      We will appreciate if you send us the details of Metadata API capabilities, which you think are missing, and the use cases as well. We seek to do only those things that are clearly understandable for us, so the use cases will be really helpful.

      We will gladly provide you with new abilities as soon as we get your opinion.

      Thank you,

        Hi Kate,

        Thanks for your response!

        Our large enterprise application can often run into difficulty compiling using the Tooling API due to code complexities and Salesforce's need to mature the API. We are basically wondering if it is possible to switch from using the Tooling API to compile our code to the MetaData API which usually works.

        We want to use the Tooling API and we do prefer it for obvious reasons, but until Salesforce can fix issues that come with it, we are forced to use the MetaData API to do full project compiles.
