2714144 - [Instance Sync] How to enable data artifacts sync between instances?

Reproducing the Issue



By default, data artifacts are disabled for all instances, only configuration items/artifacts are able to be setup in provisioning > Instance Synchronization Company Permissions.


You can raise an incident with component LOD-SF-PLT-SYN to request enabling data artifact sync between instances.

Please provide below info of two instances between which you would like to perform instance sync of data artifacts.

  •  Company ID
  •  Data Center
  •  Environment (production or preview - if you are unclear about the environment, please provide login URL) 
  •  Plus your written approval in the incident for our operations team to execute ant script to enable this feature

Support will then take above information and raise an internal ticket to request enabling the feature on your behalf.

Once this is enabled by running an ant script, data artifact section will appear in Instance Synchronization Company Permissions in provisioning.

After checking the data artifacts you want to sync in provisioning, with neccessary instance sync permission(s) (Sync User Data, Sync Background Data...), admins will be able to see data artifact options become available in Instance Synchronization Wizard.
