Powerful connection manager
Illuminated Cloud includes a powerful Salesforce connection manager for all organizations in which you work, both traditional and Salesforce DX.
Use any connection with any tool
Any configured connection can be selected for Anonymous Apex and SOQL Query execution or for reviewing logs in the Log Analyzer.
Additionally, any standard connection can be selected for metadata deployment, retrieval, and delete operations in a traditional project.
Access and manage configured connections
Illuminated Cloud also provides convenient login access to any configured connection—traditional or Salesforce DX—via the Illuminated Cloud toolbar.
Illuminated Cloud's connection status bar widget can be used to change the project's associated connection or manage any connection that is compatible with the current project.
Automatic namespace translation
When developing managed packages, it's common for each team member to use a Development Edition org with a variant of the official package namespace. Illuminated Cloud was designed specifically with this use case in mind and can be configured to automatically translate official package namespace qualifications to the development organization namespace on deployment and retrieval.
Illuminated Cloud project configuration allows you to map the development organization namespace to one or more official namespaces for purposes for translation during deployment and retrieval.
During deployment and retrieval, Illuminated Cloud automatically translates namespace qualifications using the official namespace to those appropriate for the development organization's namespace.
