Deprecation Details

We've deprecated syncing of MDF Picklist artifact, as there are some behavioral differences between syncing of MDF Picklist through the Instance Sync tool and Import and Export Data tool. Syncing of MDF Picklist through the Instance Sync tool caused discrepancies in the target instance.

As a replacement, you can use the Import and Export Data tool.

MDF Picklist artifact is deprecated and is no longer supported.
