Salesforce Delete

The Salesforce Delete transform deletes records directly from your Salesforce database using the Salesforce Web Service.

You can delete a batch of records by indicating a starting point (Fieldname id) and the amount of records (Batch Size) to delete.

You can also use the following other transforms to modify your Salesforce database:


Enter the following information in the transform name field:

  • Transform name: Specifies the unique name of the Salesforce Delete transform on the canvas. You can customize the name or leave it as the default.


Enter the connection information in the following transform options:



Salesforce Webservice URL

Specify the username for authenticating to Salesforce


Specify the password for authenticating to Salesforce. Enter your password followed by your security token. For example, if your password is PASSWORD and your security token is TOKEN, you would enter PASSWORDTOKEN in this field.

Test Connection

Rollback all changes on

Revert changes unless all records are processed successfully. When you select this option, records without errors are inserted, while records with errors are marked as failed in the insertion results. The default behavior is to allow partial success of insertion.

This list is populated with field names received from the previous transform in a pipeline. For example, you can use the Salesforce Input transform to get field names.
