Overview 

DBSync's Salesforce connector is a highly customizable connector. It has the ability to connect to any native Salesforce application. Furthermore, it also has the ability to connect with additional applications - like CRM software's, e-Commerce platforms and various other systems.  As a Salesforce user, you can use this connector to integrate Salesforce with other On-demand, On-premise or, SaaS-based applications - such as MSCRM, NetSuite, SkuVault, and databases.

The Salesforce connector, when connected to Salesforce application, has the ability to retrieve both standard and custom objects through Trigger/Rule section of DBSync iPaaS. Integrating with Salesforce consists of web service calls using an XML request/response made over an HTTPS connection.
