Create a Salesforce DX Project

A Salesforce DX project has a specific structure for your org’s metadata (code and configuration), templates, sample data, and tests.

Store these items in a version control system (VCS) to bring consistency to your team’s development processes. Retrieve the contents of your team’s repository when you’re ready to develop a new feature.

Create a DX project in the directory you want your Salesforce Functions project to be located.

  • --name (required) name of the generated project

In VS Code from the Command Palette, choose SFDX: Create Project. Select Standard standard project template (default) and enter a project name.

Salesforce CLI creates the project directory structure. The project contains base project configuration and scratch definition files, and directories for your tests and sample data sets.
