This Snap provides the functionality to poll the status of the batch job submitted to Salesforce by the preceding Salesforce Snaps (Create/Delete/Update/Upsert) in Bulk API mode. This Snap uses the Salesforce Bulk API to check the batch job status and retrieve the result for each record. The Snap sends the successful record writes to the output view and the failed record writes to the error view.

Snap Settings


Field Type



Default Value:Salesforce Poller
Salesforce Poller


Specify a unique name for the Snap. You can modify this to be more specific, especially if you have more than one of the same Snap in your pipeline.

Polling interval*

Default Value:5


Specify the polling interval in seconds for the Bulk API batch job execution. At each polling interval, the Snap checks the status of the Bulk API batch processing.

Maximum value: 60 

Polling timeout*

Default Value: 3000


Specify the polling timeout in seconds for the Bulk API batch job execution. If the timeout occurs while waiting to complete the batch job execution, the Snap displays an exception.


The polling timer starts at the beginning of the pipeline execution, and NOT when the first document passes into the Salesforce Poller snap. The Polling Timeout includes waiting for the first document to pass into the Salesforce Poller Snap.

Pass through

Default Value:Selected


Select this checkbox to display input data fields as the top level flatmap data merged with the response from SFDC in the output document.

If you deselect this checkbox, the output document will have the response from SFDC only.

Snap Execution

Default ValueExecute only

Validate & Execute

Dropdown list

Select one of the following three modes in which the Snap executes:

  • Validate & Execute: Performs limited execution of the Snap, and generates a data preview during Pipeline validation. Subsequently, performs full execution of the Snap (unlimited records) during Pipeline runtime.

  • Execute only: Performs full execution of the Snap during Pipeline execution without generating preview data.

  • Disabled: Disables the Snap and all Snaps that are downstream from it.


Pipeline: Data to a File: This pipeline reads data using a Salesforce read and writes it to a file.

titlePoll the status of the object creation actiion

The following pipeline shows how a Salesforce Create Snap creates an object record and the Salesforce Poller Snap is used to poll the status of the object creation action:   


In the pipeline execution:

  1. A JSON Generator provides object record details to create an object record. A Salesforce Create Snap creates the object record:

  2. The Salesforce Poller Snap receives the record creation details and provides the status of the create action: 

    Successful execution of the Snap gives the following preview:


title Salesforce Poller pipeline with generic error output view

Salesforce Poller pipeline with generic error output view

In this pipeline, the Salesforce Poller Snap polls the status from a delete action. The status of the invalid records are routed to the error view.

To the upstream Mapper Snap, pass the value of ID which is retrieved from the target schema of the Salesforce Delete Snap.

The Salesforce Delete Snap deletes the record 001i000001g41S9AAI from the object type Account

 The output preview from the Salesforce Delete Snap is as displayed below:

 The Salesforce Poller Snap checks the job status and retrieves the result. 

The output error view is displayed below:
Note that the ID 001i000001g41S9AAI is already deleted and hence the status routed to the output error view is displayed as ''entity is deleted''
