What is IDX Workbench?

How to deploy the OmniStudio component from one sandbox to another sandbox or production? The answer is IDX workbench. IDX Workbench simplifies Dev Ops by making it easy to share updates via source control. This is a desktop application that enables developers to migrate Data packs and Salesforce metadata from one org to another or from an org to a git repository.

When you choose a component for migration, IDX Workbench ensures that its dependent components are included. For example, if you migrate an OmniScript that requires a DataRaptor, that DataRaptor is packaged for migration with the OmniScript.

Install IDX Workbench

IDX Workbench is a desktop application, so you must install it on your computer.

  1. Download the IDX workbench.
  2. Then complete the installation base on your system.

IDX Workbench Configuration for Migration

Before you can migrate components, you must specify the source, the target, and the objects to be migrated. The source can be an org, a Project object in an org, a JSON file, the Vlocity Process Library, or a Git repository. The target can be an org or a Git repository.



I hope this post helps you to understand how to deploy OmniStudio components from one sandbox to another sandbox or production with the help of the IDX workbench in the Vlocity platform.
