How to retrieve ALL metadata in vscode

  • I'd rather not have to type out all the metadata types in the package.xml but i'm not seeing any other way to do it?

    You might have to use a separate tool like the Package Builder at the free cloudtoolkit.co site.

  • You can use this VS Code extension

    Salesforce Package.xml Generator Extension for VS Code

    This extension provides an User Interface to choose metadata components for Package.xml file for development against sandboxes or DE orgs (Org Development Model with VS Code). This is similar to Eclipse Force.com IDE Add/Remove Metadata Components option.

    Affiliation : I am the developer for this extension. It is free to use.enter image description here

    +1 from me @Vignaesh, it is helpful !!

    Vignaesh Ram good extension, but is there a way to stop 'Processing Metadata' command? After click 'select all' button, the extension is automatically processing all of the selected metadata components which seems unnessessary when you only want to get all of the metadata.
