Metadata Not Updating with Illiminate Cloud Plugin

Issue #733 resolved
sai aditya immaneni created an issue

Cannot refresh or retrieve the respective Salesforce metadata using the Illuminate cloud plugin. It is a paid version and it is the performing much worse than Eclipse. I am really unhappy on making me create a new project everytime I want to update the meta data.

    I have the same issue as well. I am on Mac OS X High Sierra using Intellij Ultimate edition and v I can retrieve metadata. But if I need to update by adding new metadata, it does not work at all. need a fix asap. This is a showstopper.

    Regarding the issue in, I have a fix that I'll be releasing on Monday, but you can grab a pre-release build of it from issue #725. Just download the attached archive and install it using Settings>Plugins>Install plugin from disk. Again, the fix will be in an official build on Monday.

    As for the original issue, can you explain what types of issues you're having? If it's the same NPE that is detailed in #725, grab that pre-release build until is released. If instead it's a matter of not understanding how to maintain a metadata subscription over time in Illuminated Cloud, e.g., adding new metadata from the org to the subscription and retrieving it, I can provide that information. You absolutely do not have to create a new project every time you want new just need to go into the subscription editor, refresh the list of metadata, check a few boxes to add to your subscription, and perform a Retrieve Metadata operation.

    Let me know what additional information you need and I'll be very happy to help.

    Hi @RoseSilverSoftware,

    I have trouble as well after recently migration from a Windows PC to a Mac, also upgraded to High Sierra.

    1. I start out fresh by creating a new IC project.
    2. Creating a new connection: Adding my credentials, clicking Test and get the "Connection Succeeded"
    3. Selecting the default set of metadata and clicking "Next"
    4. Retrieve Metadata from and Generate offline symbol table is selected, clicking "Finish"

    Getting this balloon:

    If I click resolve it tells me it will generate an offline symbol table, I click OK. Then it wants to rebuild caches and indices and restart which I do.

    When restarted/reloaded I get the same balloon and if I go into Module settings this is what I see:

    Existing projects set up on my Windows machine works just fine but I can't create new ones.

    I'm running IDEA 2017.3.1 and IC so it might not be related to this specific ticket, I can create a new ticket if you want to.

    I think I know what's going on. Can you make sure that you have the Coverage plugin enabled? There is a bug in the current build that requires that plugin to be enabled. I will be posting a new version with a fix tomorrow morning, but for now enabling Coverage in Settings>Plugins should resolve the issue for you. Please let me know if it doesn't, and apologies for the issue.
