Meta Data API

Hi All,


When I try to extract profile meta file using ant script i am hitting a limitation in terms of number of components getting reterived as part of extract.


As anyone come around this limitation and or I need to set some parameter as part of extract.

When you export profiles, a sub-set of your profile information is extracted based on other components you have specified in package.xml.  So you might want to check the contents of your package.xml and eliminate components that you don't need.  In particular, check if you have specified "*" for any of the metadata types and see if you can change it to retrieve only specific components of that type.  Hope this helps.
