Exporting Flow



Is there a way to export/download a flow file that has been uploaded to a Salesforce org?




The only way you can get a flow is by uploading the .Flow file. Did you happen to mis place the file?

There is no direct way for you to get the .flow file. However, I would log a case with support and they should be able to get it for you.


In general, the best practice is to source control the .flow file like any other file.


Hi Rajram,


I had taken the .flow file from sandbox using my eclipse workspace and tried to upload it another dev org.


but it was throwing an error saying

Invalid File

The file is not a valid flow file.


Am i missing anything??

I have the same issue Rakesh31, did you find a solution?  Thanks -Ci

I'm also getting the "Invalid File" and this is a existing flow on a developer org, the XML was retrieved from a repository using the "" plug-in.

do we have any news on why this is happening?
