Salesforce Delete is a Write-type Snap that enables you to delete records using REST API or Bulk API 1.0. The Snap in Bulk API mode submits a batch job and writes the batch job information to the output view, which should be passed to the Salesforce Poller Snap to check the result of the batch job. The Snap in REST API mode deletes records and returns results synchronously without the need of the Salesforce Poller Snap.

Snap Views

TypeFormatNumber of ViewsExamples of Upstream and Downstream SnapsDescription
  • Min: 1
  • Max: 1
  • Mapper

This Snap has exactly one input view and receives documents in the view. Each document contains an ID of the record to be deleted.
  • Min: 0
  • Max: 1
  • JSON Formatter
This Snap has at most one output view and produces documents in the view. Each document contains Map data that includes the Job ID, Batch ID, URL, and an array of records in Bulk API mode. If it is executed in REST API mode, each document contains Map data for the ID of the deleted record and a key-value pair of "created":"false".

This Snap has one optional error view and might produce documents in the view, if the input data causes an error in the REST API. Each document contains key/value pairs from the input view and an error message from The error message is in the value of the error key. If the Snap is in the Bulk API, a similar set of data is available in the error view of the Salesforce Poller Snap connected to this Snap directly or indirectly.

The error view contains error, reason, resolution and stack trace. For more information, see Handling Errors with an Error Pipeline.

Batch Size


In Bulk API, this property value is allowed to be from 1 through 10,000. Each input document can contain an ID value to delete one Salesforce record. The Snap stores input records in memory until the number of records reaches the batch size and sends the request to SFDC in a single batch.   Increasing the batch size increases the amount of memory used. Decreasing the batch size increases the number of API calls against Salesforce.

In REST API, the Snap can delete only one record per request regardless of the value of the Batch size property

Default value: 200
Example: 200, 10000

Object Type


Specify the name of the Salesforce object or select one from the suggested list.


This Snap does not support Net Zero Cloud Salesforce objects.

Default Value:  Account
Example:  Account

Salesforce API*

Dropdown list

Set the Salesforce API mode to Bulk API or REST API. The Snap in REST API mode deletes one record at a time and returns the results at the output. REST API can be simpler and faster if the number of records to be created is small (a few).

Default value: Bulk API
Example: REST API

Bulk API Serial mode


Select this checkbox to enable the serial mode for Bulk API. Else, the Bulk API runs in parallel mode.

Default Value: Not selected (Parallel mode)

Standardize Error Output


Select this checkbox to enable the Snap to produce the error output with Reason, Original, Stack trace and Resolution.
If unchecked the output view will simply show the input document along with the error message.

Default Value:  Not selected

Pass Through


Select this checkbox to pass the input document to the output view under the key original. This field applies to REST API and Bulk API, but only when the batch size is one.

Default Value:  Selected



For Bulk APIs, if you select this check box and if the Batch size is equal to 1, the input document is passed to the output view under the key original. If the Batch size is greater than 1, the list of input documents is displayed under Records and the input document is not included under the original key.
