WWW::SFDC provides a set of packages which you can use to build useful
interactions with's many APIs. Initially it was intended
for the construction of powerful and flexible deployment tools.
use WWW::SFDC; # Import everything
use WWW::SFDC::Tooling; # Just the tooling API interface
use WWW::SFDC qw'Metadata Manifest';
# Equivalent to importing WWW::SFDC::Metadata and WWW::SFDC::Manifest
=over 4
=item WWW::SFDC::SessionManager
Provides the lowest-level interaction with SOAP::Lite. Handles the
SessionID and renews it when necessary.
=item WWW::SFDC::Manifest
Stores and manipulates lists of metadata for retrieving and deploying
to and from
=item WWW::SFDC::Metadata
Wraps the Metadata API.
=item WWW::SFDC::Partner
Wraps the Partner API.
=item WWW::SFDC::Tooling
Wraps the Tooling API.
=item WWW::SFDC::Zip
Provides utilities for creating and extracting base-64 encoded zip
files for retrievals and deployments.
The following provides a starting point for a simple retrieval tool.
Notice that after the initial setup of WWW::SFDC::Metadata the login
credentials are cached. In this example, you'd use
_retrieveTimeMetadataChanges to remove files you didn't want to track,
change sandbox outbound message endpoints to production, or similar.
Notice that I've tried to keep the interface as fluent as possible in
all of these modules - every method which doesn't have an obvious
return value returns $self.
package ExampleRetrieval;
use WWW::SFDC::Metadata;
use WWW::SFDC::Manifest;
use WWW::SFDC::Zip qw'unzip';
WWW::SFDC::Metadata->instance(creds => {
password => $password,
username => $username,
url => $url
my $manifest = WWW::SFDC::Manifest
{type => 'Document', folder => 'Apps'},
{type => 'Document', folder => 'Developer_Documents'},
{type => 'EmailTemplate', folder => 'Asset'},
{type => 'ApexClass'}
Here's a similar example for deployments. You'll want to construct
@filesToDeploy and $deployOptions context-sensitively!
package ExampleDeployment;
use WWW::SFDC::Metadata;
use WWW::SFDC::Manifest;
use WWW::SFDC::Zip qw'makezip';
my $manifest = WWW::SFDC::Manifest
my $zip = makezip
my $deployOptions = {
singlePackage => 'true',
rollbackOnError => 'true',
checkOnly => 'true'
WWW::SFDC::Metadata->instance(creds => {
})->deployMetadata $zip, $deployOptions;
To unsanitise some users' email address and change their profiles
on a new sandbox, you might do something like this:
package ExampleUserSanitisation;
use WWW::SFDC::Partner;
use List::Util qw'first';
WWW::SFDC::Partner->instance(creds => {
username => $username,
password => $password,
url => $url
my @users = (
{User => alexander.brett, Email =>, Profile => $profileId},
{User => another.user, Email =>, Profile => $profileId},
map {
my $row = $_;
my $original = first {$row->{Username} =~ /$$_{User}/} @users;
Id => $row->{Id},
ProfileId => $original->{Profile},
Email => $original->{Email},
} WWW::SFDC::Partner->instance()->query(
"SELECT Id, Username FROM User WHERE "
. (join " OR ", map {"Username LIKE '%$_%'"} map {$_->{User}} @inputUsers)
