Common Restore Parameters Tab

Commonly used parameters that affect the complete restoration process.

Parameter Description
 Tracker Database Name CopyStorm uses a local H2 database to track restore progress. This database allows CopyStorm/Restore to continue a restore if interrupted, and allows incremental restoration. By default CopyStorm/Restore will pick a tracker name unique to the current configuration file, but it can be explicitly set using this global parameter.

Note: CopyStorm/Restore tracking databases are, by default, kept in the directory “$HOME/.capstorm/copyStormRestoreSets”.

 Ignore Timestamps  If checked, CopyStorm/Restore will overwrite records in Salesforce even if they have matching modification timestamps. If unchecked, CopyStorm/Restore will skip records with matching modification timestamps.
Decrypt Compliance Data If checked, decrypted compliance data will be pushed to Salesforce. This data may, or may not, be obfuscated based on the database user’s role. If unchecked, data will be pushed to Salesforce directly from the CopyStorm database, as-is.
Show Missing Fields Include fields that are missing from the CopyStorm database or from Salesforce when displaying available fields to restore in the Restore Set Editor.
Show Formula Fields Include formula fields when displaying available fields to restore in the Restore Set Editor.
Referenced Record Not Found Default Default action to take when a record to restore references a record that is not in the target Salesforce instance.


  • A Case record restore candidate references a Contact no longer in Salesforce.
  • An Account record restore candidate references a parent Account no longer in Salesforce.

Available values are:

  • Set to Null – ignore a missing reference and set the column to NULL in the target Salesforce.
  • Skip Record – do not restore a record if a referenced record cannot be found in the target Salesforce.
  • Create Record – create missing referenced records in the target Salesforce if necessary.
