[SalesForce] Automating Sandbox Refresh

I have tried looking in the SFDC documentation, but I haven't really found anything that is useful.

Does anyone have any experience automating the refresh of sandboxes? One approach I was thinking was to use the SalesForce API.

Do you have any recommendations?

Best Answer

There are no API methods for the creation nor refresh of Sandboxes, period.

A set of Selenium scripts could be authored to try to automate the UI clicking and waiting, but that's fragile and hacky and likely to cause you more frustration than just manually refreshing.
