Welcome to the Salto docs!

You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Salto as quickly as possible, as well as deep dive into Salto topics and ideas you find interesting.

Let's get started!

Get Started

Fetching a small change

Making a change and fetching it

In the part you will make a small change in the service you connected, then fetch it into Salto. This is a key flow of using Salto day-to-day, so expect to be repeating this one often!

  • Go to the admin UI of the service you connected to Salto earlier (e.g. to Salesforce's Setup screen, or to NetSuite's Setup Manager)
  • Make a simple change, e.g. create a new custom field, or edit the description of an existing field
  • Come back to your workspace and click Fetch
  • Wait for fetch to complete, as it might take a few minutes
  • See the Env Fetch preview, where you can see the changes before they are applied to your workspace
    • The editor's left panel shows the list of files that will be changed if you apply these changes. Try both Path and Tree views
    • Click Cancel and nothing in your workspace will change
    • Click Apply to apply these changes to your workspace
  • Click Apply, then Done


You've fetched your first change!

Noticed how readable the fetch preview was?

Pushing to Git

  • Click Push in the operations panel
  • In the Git Push preview click through the files that changed to explore the differences about to be pushed to Git
  • Add a message title and body relevant to what's changed
  • Click Push
  • Click Done
    • You can also click View on GitHub to see the change in your repository


You've pushed your first change to Git!

You're almost done. The next step is especially exciting - changing NaCls and deploying.
