Track Source Changes in Sandboxes Automatically (Beta)

When source tracking is enabled in a Developer or Developer Pro sandbox, the sandbox automatically tracks changes between the sandbox and the local workspace. When you pull sandbox changes into your project or push project changes to the sandbox, only the changed source is synched back.
This change applies to Lightning Experience in Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited editions. Note that source tracking is available for Developer and Developer Pro sandboxes only. Partial and Full sandboxes are not supported.

As a beta feature, Source Tracking in Sandboxes is a preview and isn’t part of the “Services” under your master subscription agreement with Salesforce. Use this feature at your sole discretion, and make your purchase decisions only on the basis of generally available products and features. Salesforce doesn’t guarantee general availability of this feature within any particular time frame or at all, and we can discontinue it at any time. This feature is for evaluation purposes only, not for production use. It’s offered as is and isn’t supported, and Salesforce has no liability for any harm or damage arising out of or in connection with it. All restrictions, Salesforce reservation of rights, obligations concerning the Services, and terms for related Non-Salesforce Applications and Content apply equally to your use of this feature. You can provide feedback and suggestions for the Source Tracking in Sandboxes feature by posting in Collaboration or Ideas in the Trailblazer Community.
