External-ID Field*String

Specify the name for the External ID field. Use this field to define the unique externalized key of the object. The Snap operates exclusively on the external ID field, and not on the Salesforce-generated record ID. The external ID is useful when you want to synchronize an external system to Salesforce.com.

If a record for a given external ID exists, the record is updated with the input record data. If no record exists for a given external ID, create a new record with the input record data. Use the external ID as the unique record identifier from an external system. 

To create an external ID field for an Account object:

  1. Log in to your Salesforce account.
  2. Go to App Setup > Customize > Account > Fields > New.
  3. Follow the instructions and create a new custom field.
