To Receive Custom Event Notifications (Salesforce Connector)

The Salesforce connector provides two operations that are useful for getting custom event notifications. These notifications pertain to general events that are not tied to Salesforce data changes.

  1. Create a streaming channel with the Publish Channel operation.

    A StreamingChannel is a special Salesforce object that represents a channel used for notifying listeners of generic Streaming API events.

    Note that you can also create a streaming channel through the Salesforce or through Workbench.

  2. Subscribe to the channel through the Subscribe Channel operation.

    The Salesforce connector converts the custom events in your streaming channel to Mule events and dispatches them to your flows.
