DumpIT - Adding / Ignoring fields

Default settings for DumpIT, migrates data for all the creatable fields of an object. For example, if the build.properties file ONLY mentions account as:

process.objects=Account

This migrates all creatable fields for "Account" object. There ar scenarios where you want to migrate data for certain specific fields or ignore certain fields, to do so you can use these given properties in the build properties file.

Ignoring field:

To avoid migrating a certain set of fields, add the below-given property:

Account.ignorefields=Industry,OwnerId

This will migrate all the Account creatable fields except the ones mentioned in the above statement.

Selective fields:

To migrate data for only selective fields, add the below-given property:

Account.fields = Name,BillingAddress,RecordTypeId

In this scenario, only the fields mentioned in the above statement will be migrated, make sure you select all the required fields for that object.

Salesforce CPQ - Automatically add a Product to a Quote

Recently I have seen a question popping up on communities that how can we add a product dynamically to a quote (not within the bundle), based on a condition. I'll explain a few simple use cases below.

The auto complete text box is implemented using the CSS provided by Salesforce1  lightning design . The Visualforce page uses Visualforce remoting to fetch records based on the user input. A call to the controller method is made every time a keyup event is fired and the results are updated.

Few of the existing options suggested by different people were: Use Weekly Export. I could use it but I only had to export a few thousand attachments from millions and I can only run it once a week. Use dataloader.io. The free version only allows me to extract limited records on a day. Where can I download this from?
