Installation Notes

We're still working on creating salesforcedx v48 installers. However, you can easily update Salesforce CLI to v48 by running sfdx update or any CLI command. If you are installing Salesforce CLI for the first time, see Install Salesforce CLI to install the CLI for your operating system, then run sfdx update.

Uninstall the Pre-Release Version of the salesforcedx CLI Plug-In

If you installed the pre-release version 48 of the salesforcedx plug-in, uninstall it, then run the update command.

sfdx plugins:uninstall salesforcedx
sfdx update

New Commands

force:analytics:template:create. Allows you to create a simple analytics template in a specified directory.

force:community:create. Creates a community using a template.

force:community:publish. Publishes your Lightning community to make it live. Each time you publish, you update the live community with the most recent updates.

force:community:template:list. Retrieves the list of templates available in your org for creating a community.

New Parameters

force:package:version:create --skipvalidation. Skips validation during package version creation. Skipping validation allows you to create package versions faster, but you can’t promote a package version that was created without validation.

force:source:delete --checkonly. Performs a test deployment (validation) in the non-sourced-tracked org without deleting the metadata. After the validation passes, you can safely delete the metadata using this command.

Changed Commands

force:package:version:list. Displays columns that indicate if the package version has passed code coverage, and the code coverage percentage. We also added columns to indicate the ancestor ID and ancestor version number for the package version's ancestor. Ancestor ID and version number display for package versions created in Spring '20 and later.

Changed Parameters

These parameters were added to the force:source:convert and force:mdapi:convert commands in a weekly release of salesforcedx.

-x | --manifest. Specifies the complete path to the manifest (package.xml) file that specifies the metadata types to convert.

-m | --metadata. Specifies a comma-separated list of metadata component names to convert.

-p | --sourcepath. Specifies a comma-separated list of paths to the local source files to convert (force:source:convert).

-p | --metadatapath. Specifies a comma-separated list of paths to the local source files to convert (force:mdapi:convert).

Deprecated Parameters

We removed the -a short version of the --apiversion parameter. The following commands were affected:
