# This cheatsheet contains the most often used SFDX commands for beginners to get a jumpstart.
# Hint. it is highly recommended to use `-h` to check the usage of any SFDX commands and corresponding parameters.
# For instance, use `sfdx force:auth:web:login -h` to checke what `-d` `-a` parameters do

# Check current DebHub and Scratch Org status
sfdx force:org:list

# Log into DevHub via the web browser
sfdx force:auth:web:login -d -a DevHub

# Log out all connected orgs
sfdx force:auth:logout -a --noprompt 

# change password for a org with alias "tempTest"
sfdx force:user:password:generate -u tempTest

# Log into a sandbox environment
sfdx force:auth:web:login --setalias sandbox1 --instanceurl https://test.salesforce.com

# Set one Dev Hub as the default
# Note `defaultdevhubusername` can be either username or DevHub alias
sfdx force:config:set defaultdevhubusername=DevHub

# Create a scratch org with alias tempTest
sfdx force:org:create -s -f config/project-scratch-def.json -a tempTest

# Set an existing scratch org as default
sfdx force:config:set defaultusername=<username|alias>

# run the LTS tests constructed in the app named jasmineTests.app
sfdx force:lightning:test:run -a jasmineTests.app

# Open the scratch org with alias 'tempTest' in browser
sfdx force:org:open -u tempTest

# Open the default scratch org with lightning experience
sfdx force:org:open --path one/one.app

# Delete a scratch org with alias tempTest
# Note. `-u` accepts either an username or a scratch org alias
sfdx force:org:delete -u tempTest

# Create a project locally in folder MyProject

# Check changes between the scratch org and local project

# Pull changes from the associated scratch org
sfdx force:source:pull

# Push changes from the associated scratch org
sfdx force:source:push

# Assign a permission set to the current logged in user
sfdx force:user:permset:assign -n myCustomPermSet

# Export some sample data from the scratch org

# assume a package.xml containing list of meta-data is in place, the goal is to retrieve meta-data from sandbox and conver to a DX format so we can save these metadata to git as well as push into scratch org 
sfdx force:mdapi:retrieve -r retrieveCodeoutput -k package.xml -u sandbox1
unzip retrieveCodeoutput/unpackaged.zip

sfdx force:mdapi:convert --rootdir unpackaged/
# above command will convert metadata info and save to current DX project
