Simplifying Salesforce object interactions with the Salesforce Composite connector

SFDC Composite SObject Tree Flow.

If you have worked with Mule for any period of time you know that we provide deep support for interacting with Salesforce Clouds – including connectors, templates, and examples. But you may not be aware that Salesforce exposes many different APIs that our connectors leverage for these integrations. Many developers may be familiar with the real-time, bulk, or streaming integration patterns that Salesforce supports. This blog will touch on a lesser-known API resource Salesforce has released and the MuleSoft connector that supports it.  

How to deliver employee apps fast with Salesforce Lightning Platform and MuleSoft

CIOs and IT departments have one common goal: to increase efficiency through technology. One way to reach this goal is by investing in the employee experience. When companies invest in a better digital workplace, their employees become more productive and ultimately drive 30% more revenue growth. Sounds pretty good, right?

But delivering a connected employee experience is hard. Enterprises need to develop applications that are both highly functional and fueled by data.

When it comes to getting data in and out of Salesforce using Anypoint Platform, there are a number of different options. Typically, using just one of them won’t give you everything you need and you might have to combine a number of them to to achieve a complete solution. In this post, we’ll summarize 4 options – Realtime, Custom, Bulk, and Data Virtualization – when to use which, and things to keep in mind for each.

So far, in this series, we have covered Migration, Broadcast, Bi-Directional Sync, and today we are going to cover a new integration pattern: Correlation. In an effort to avoid repeating myself, for those who are reading through the whole series, I will omit a lot of relevant information which is shared between the patterns that I have previously covered. I urge you to read at least the previous post about bi-directional sync as correlation can be viewed as a variation of bi-directional sync.
