Partial Copy - Opportunities are not copied if the Opportunity to Account relationship is removed
Last updated 2019-03-19 ·Reference W-4111134 ·Reported By 4 users
Some customers may have observed that their Partial Copy sandbox did not copy Opportunities while the Opportunity Object was selected in the sandbox template.
This occurs in situations where the Opportunity to Account relationship is removed.
The Account field on an Opportunity is set to required by default, but this configuration can be changed at the page layout hence allowing administrators to configure the behavior in the way that they choose for their business.
If the Account Field of the Opportunity record is set as a non -required field, then the opportunities created will have the account_id field set as 000000000000000. But this field is considered as required during sampling, as a result, the opportunities object are not getting copied in the Partial sandbox.
1. Login as Admin to an Org
2. Go to the Opportunity Object Page Layouts from Setup and remove the required field from Account field.
3. Now create an Opportunity Object without entering anything for Account field
4. Create a Partial Sandbox with Opportunity included in the template
5. After the copy is complete the Opportunities are not copied over to the sandbox
