Limitations, Known Issues, and Future Plans

Issues and roadmap are tracked in GitHub Issues.


  • Amaxa does not support import or export of compound fields (Addresses and Geolocations), but can import and export their component fields, such as MailingStreet.
  • Amaxa does not support Base64 binary-blob fields.


Future plans include:

  • Improvements to efficiency in API use and memory consumption.
  • More sophisticated handling of references to “metadata-ish” sObjects, like Users and Record Types.
  • Support for importing data from external systems that does not have a Salesforce Id - Note that manually synthesizing Id values in input data is fine, provided they conform to the expected length and character content of Salesforce Ids.
  • Recursive logic on extraction to handle outside references.
