Metazoa Snapshot now includes a powerful visualization and analysis tool that gives Salesforce customers insights into their metadata asset connections
Metazoa, developers of the Salesforce ecosystem’s top software toolset for org management, today announced that Metazoa Snapshot has been enhanced with impact analysis reporting capabilities. Snapshot’s impact analysis report provides Salesforce customers with critical insights into the metadata asset connections within their orgs and can be used to interactively browse through metadata dependencies, analyze the impact of planned changes, and create entity relationship diagrams for engineering, compliance or presentation.

For a limited time, Metazoa is offering the Metazoa Snapshot Impact Analysis Report feature for free on the Salesforce AppExchange.
“Whenever a Salesforce customer makes changes to an org unforeseen disruption can occur because of the way metadata assets are linked,” said Metazoa CEO Jennifer Mercer. “There are hundreds of metadata types within a Salesforce org and over a thousand different potential relationships between them. Our impact analysis report helps Salesforce customers see the metadata asset connections before changes are made, which can save them from costly mistakes.”
Metazoa Snapshot is the industry’s most comprehensive toolset for Salesforce org management, optimization and technical debt removal. Snapshot’s impact analysis report gives Salesforce customers an edge by providing a high-level view of how the metadata assets in their orgs are connected. Users can select an asset that is going to be changed or deleted and see in real-time the other assets that it depends on, and how they will be affected. Snapshot’s impact analysis report works with all 250 different metadata types and is aware of over 1200 different relationships, which is by far the most comprehensive coverage of any impact analysis report on the market.

Key impact analysis report features include:
Metadata Asset Selection
Metadata asset selection allows users to select any metadata asset. For example, if a user were conducting impact analysis, they would select the asset that they want to change. The report then shows the different asset types and the individual assets of that type.
Users can filter metadata types that are included in the report. The list shows all available types and highlights those selected by the user. There is also built-in automation that will reset the selection to some common metadata types that are often connected.
The dependency view is an important capability because it can show the assets that a selected asset is dependent on and related to in the same interface.
All of the assets that are related to a selected asset are visible with this feature. This report can be exported in many formats, and all reports can be scheduled as an automated workflow.
“If a Salesforce customer is wondering how any part of their org is structured, they can use the Snapshot impact analysis report to interactively explore the various relationships involved,” added Tom Appleton, Metazoa VP of Sales. “If a Salesforce customer is planning on changing or deleting any asset they can now see the impacts involved. This is extremely useful when it comes to figuring out difficult deployment scenarios.”
Metazoa’s vast experience in the field ensures that organizations utilizing its tools and services can better manage their Salesforce orgs, including an ability to manage the change and release process, migrate large datasets between orgs, visualize and reduce org complexity, improve security and compliance, and lower the total cost of org management. Created in 2006, Metazoa Snapshot was the first org management solution designed specifically for Salesforce and was one of the first App’s offered on the Salesforce AppExchange. Over the years, Metazoa Snapshot has grown into the industry’s most comprehensive toolset for org management.
