Salesforce Connector 10.15 Examples - Mule 4

Accept and Transform Data

This example shows how to configure Salesforce Connector to create a new Salesforce account and query new accounts, and to use File Connector to write the new account data to a file. The example contains three flows:

  • The first flow configures a template for the HTML input form used to provide data for the new account.

  • The second flow creates a new Salesforce account based on information in the HTML input form.

  • The third flow queries new accounts by name and writes new account data to a CSV file.

Accept and transform data flows

Configure the First Flow

Configure the first flow that configures an HTML template that provides the data used to create a new account. Creating the first flow involves configuring a Listener component and a Parse Template component.

Configure the HTTP Listener

Configure the Listener component to initiate a Mule flow when a call is made to the /account path:

  1. Create a new Mule project in Studio.

  2. From the Mule Palette view, select HTTP and drag the Listener component to the canvas.

  3. In the properties window, click + next to the Connector configuration field to add a global element.

  4. Accept the defaults.

  5. In the properties window, set the Path field value to /account.

Add the Parse Template Component

Add the Parse Template component to create a template for an HTML form (form.html), which is located in the main resources folder and is used to convey information for creating a new account:

  1. From the Mule Palette view, select Core and drag a Parse Template component to the right of Listener.

  2. In the properties window, configure the following fields:

    Field Value

    Display Name

    Name for the component, such as Parse Template.

Create or Update an Object in a Parent-Child Relationship

This example shows how to create the object relationship structure in Salesforce needed to perform an upsert using Salesforce Connector.

Create or Update an Object in a Parent-Child Relationship flow

Configure the Flow

A Salesforce object can have standard or custom relationships between objects. The relationships between objects are usually one-to-many (parent-child) relationships, but can be any link between two objects residing in Salesforce.

The example uses two custom Salesforce object types that have a parent-child relationship:

  • Plane__c, the parent object that must exist in Salesforce

  • Component__c, the object to upsert using Salesforce Connector

The relationship between the two custom objects is represented by a Plane__r field whose value is an object with two fields:

  • The type field, which has the referenced object type name as its value.

    In this example, the value of type is Plane_c.

  • A field that identifies the instance of the parent object to reference.

    In this example, the Name field references the Cobra instance of Plane__c.

When you upsert Component__c, the POJO sent as input to Salesforce Connector looks like this:

 ----
 [{
 	// Component__c's fields ...
 	Plane__r: {
 		"type": "Plane__c",
 		"Name": "Cobra"
 	}
 }]
----

Creating the flow involves configuring a Listener component, a Transform Message component, an Upsert operation, and a second Transform Message component.

Configure the HTTP Listener

Configure the Listener component to initiate a Mule flow when a call is made to the / path:

  1. Create a new Mule project in Studio.

  2. From the Mule Palette view, select HTTP and drag the Listener component to the canvas.

  3. In the properties window, click + next to the Connector configuration field to add a global element.

  4. Accept the defaults.

  5. In the properties window, set the Path field value to /.

Add the First Transform Message Component

Add the first Transform Message component to convert the values from the HTTP input form to Java format so they can be used as input to the Upsert operation:

  1. From the Mule Palette view, select Core and drag a Transform Message component to the right of Listener.

  2. In the properties window, overlay the brackets in the Output section with this DataWeave code:

    %dw 2.0
    output application/java
    ---
    [{
    	Name: "NewPlaneComponent",
    	Plane__r: {
    		"type": "Plane__c",
    		"Name": "Cobra"
    	}
    }]

Add the Upsert Operation

Add the Upsert operation to create or update a Salesforce object that is in a parent-child relationship:

  1. From the Mule Palette view, select Salesforce and drag the Upsert operation to the right of Transform Message.

  2. In the properties window, click + next to the Connector configuration field to add a global element.

  3. Configure the global element depending on the connection, for example:

    Field Value

    Username

    ${salesforce.username}

    Password

    ${salesforce.password}

    Security

    ${salesforce.securityToken}

    Authorization URL

    https://login.salesforce.com/services/Soap/u/53.0

    The following image shows an example of the Upsert configuration of the global element:

  4. In the properties window, configure the following fields:

    Field Value

    Display Name

    Name for the connector operation.

    Connector configuration

    Global configuration you just created.

    Object type

    Component_c

    External id field name

    Id

    Records

    payload

    The following image shows an example of the Upsert configuration in the properties window:

Find Duplicate Accounts

This example shows how to use Salesforce Connector to find duplicate Salesforce accounts.

Find Duplicate Accounts flow

Configure the Flow

Creating the flow involves configuring a Listener component, a Transform Message component, a Find duplicates operation, and a second Transform Message component.

Configure the HTTP Listener

Configure the Listener component to initiate a Mule flow when a call is made to the /findDuplicates path:

  1. Create a new Mule project in Studio.

  2. From the Mule Palette view, select HTTP and drag the Listener component to the canvas.

  3. In the properties window, click + next to the Connector configuration field to add a global element.

  4. Accept the defaults.

  5. In the properties window, set the Path field value to /findDuplicates.

Add the First Transform Message Component

Add the first Transform Message component to convert the values from the HTTP input form to Java format so they can be used as input to the Delete operation:

  1. From the Mule Palette view, select Core and drag a Transform Message component to the right of Listener.

  2. In the properties window, overlay the brackets in the Output section with this DataWeave code:

    %dw 2.0
    output application/java
    ---
    [
      payload
    ]

Add the Find Duplicates Operation

Add the Find duplicates operation to find duplicate Salesforce accounts:

  1. From the Mule Palette view, select Salesforce and drag the Find duplicates operation to the right of Transform Message.

  2. In the properties window, click + next to the Connector configuration field to add a global element.

  3. Configure the global element depending on the connection, for example:

    Field Value

    Username

    ${salesforce.username}

    Password

    ${salesforce.password}

    Security

    ${salesforce.securityToken}

    Authorization URL

    https://login.salesforce.com/services/Soap/u/53.0

    The following image shows an example of the Find duplicates configuration of the global element:

    Find Duplicates global element configuration window
  4. In the properties window, configure the following fields:

    Field Value

    Display Name

    Name for the connector operation.

    Connector configuration

    Global configuration you just created.

    Type

    Account

    Criteria

    payload

    The following image shows an example of the Find duplicates configuration in the properties window:

    Find Duplicates properties window configuration

Add the Second Transform Message Component

Add the second Transform Message component to convert the values from Java format to JSON format:

  1. From the Mule Palette view, select Core and drag a Transform Message component to the right of Find duplicates.

  2. In the properties window, overlay the brackets in the Output section with this DataWeave code:

    %dw 2.0
    output application/json
    ---
    {
      success: payload.success,
      duplicateResults: {
        (payload.duplicateResults map {
          matchRecords: $.matchResults
        }
        )
      },
      duplicateRuleEntityType: payload.duplicateRuleEntityType,
      duplicateRule: payload.duplicateRule,
      allowSave: payload.allowSave,
      errorMessage: payload.errorMessage
    }

XML for This Example

Paste this code into the Studio XML editor to quickly load the flow for this example into your Mule app:
