Fetching Your Configuration Data

To fully harness the power of Salto's configuration management, the first step is connecting your business application to a Salto environment and fetching its configuration data (you can learn more about exploring it with Salto here).

๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ Rest assured, your data is well-protected. Salto provides a secure service that meets the highest industry standards and certifications, including SOC 2.

Fetch Frequency

Salto's default setting is to fetch your environment daily to ensure it shows your application's recent configuration changes. This setting can be adjusted to meet your specific needs:

  1. Go to 'Settings' in your Salto environment.

  2. Scroll to the 'Fetch Frequency' section.

  3. Select a frequency that aligns with your operational requirements.

Manual Fetch

Manual fetches are useful for obtaining the most recent configuration data, particularly before deployments and comparisons where it's crucial to see the most up-to-date source and target environments.

There are 3 types of fetch, which vary depending on the application you connected to Salto:

  1. Full Fetch: Retrieves all the configuration data that was defined for the environment. Performing a Full Fetch at least daily is recommended for a complete and up-to-date representation of your configuration.

  2. Change-Based Fetch: Significantly reduces the fetch time and is suitable for frequent configuration changes. It fetches only the elements that have changed since the last fetch and is available for NetSuite and Salesforce. You should use it in addition to the daily Full Fetch.

    โš  Please follow this guide to learn more about our Change-Based Fetch coverage in NetSuite.

    โš  In Salesforce, due to constraints imposed by API capabilities, Salto doesn't fetch modifications to the labels and descriptions of Custom Objects. If you expect a change in these elements, run a Full Fetch.

  3. Custom Fetch: This option allows users to specify and tailor the fetched configuration data, providing a fetch process that meets specific requirements.

To run a manual fetch, click on the fetch button located at the top-right corner of the Salto interface:

Alternatively, you can fetch your environment when creating a new deployment or during an existing one:
