Salesforce Flows are powerful automation tools that enable businesses to create custom, declarative workflows without the need for extensive coding. They streamline processes, enhance user experience, and improve overall productivity. However, managing flows across multiple Salesforce orgs can be challenging, especially when you need to clone and replicate them.

In this latest blog, we will explore the process of cloning multiple flows from the same or external Salesforce orgs, providing you with a comprehensive guide to simplify the task and save valuable time. Let's know how

ABC Company is using Salesforce to manage its Sales, Service Cloud activities. They have lot of Flows which are being used to automate / schedule the business processes.

ABC Company is expanding its business and want to setup a new Salesforce org (Org 2) which is replica of existing Salesforce org (Org 1). In order to replicate, they need to perform multiple activities like:

  • Clone Custom Objects & all of its custom fields, validation rules, Page-layouts, Record types

  • Clone Reports (with Report Types & Report Folders)

  • Clone Flows.

How can I Clone Multiple Flows from selected org to current Org?

As both the orgs (Org 1 & Org 2) are not inter-linked to each other, Alex (an administrator of ABC Company), will have to manually copy each and every entities and complete his action.

For eg: In case, if a developer has to clone a simple or complicated flow with many conditions, filters etc, then admin would have to open each and every flow and clone them to new org.

These type of work requests would take much more effort and time, but with our Salesforce Appexchange Bulk Object Field Creator (BOFC) App user can clone multiple flows within “Current Salesforce org” or from any “External Salesforce org” in few clicks.
