Backing Up Salesforce Metadata

You can back up Salesforce metadata. By default, the Commvault software does not include the Salesforce metadata in backups.


You cannot backup metadata from a managed package. Metadata from a managed package, such as Apex classes, triggers, and Lightning Web Components, are only accessible to the provider of the managed package.
