Retrieve metadata with a namespace

Issue #926 duplicate
Michael Sobczak created an issue

I've brought down all of the code in a Dev Org that contains Visualforce pages and other design elements with a namespace defined. I can't seem to bring those elements down into my intellij workspace. How do I retrieve those design elements?

    Michael, are you trying to retrieve these from an installed managed package? If so, there are limits to what you can be retrieved due to the code obfuscation feature of managed packages. Right now IC supports retrieval of subscriber-editable metadata types from managed packages and generates the global interfaces for Apex classes and SObjects/fields in the OST. I'm going to be including the global interfaces of Lightning components when I address this issue:

    In a perfect world I'd like to also include the global interfaces of Visualforce components, but I think the last time I tried the bodies were returned from the API as (hidden). I'm going to try again in the context of the issue linked above.

    Was there something else you were looking for that wouldn't be addressed by the items above?

    The Visualforce page in question was installed as part of a managed package. I see what you're saying. I can view the page in Developer Console, but can't modify it obviously. I think I'm all set for now.

    Gotcha. Yeah, I'll resolve this as a dupe of #910 since I'm going to see if I can grab the full published interface for inclusion in the OST as part of that issue.
