DBSync Export functionality enables the user to restore all the changes made in the Salesforce instance to the original status as reflected in the database. User can restore the entire information to reflect the database if any errors were made.Users might be performing various changes to a number of Accounts in the Salesforce instances and there is a chance that such information might be an error or not required or dated in which case it must not affect the User.

Steps to Run Export Functionality:

  • Login to DBSync Cloud Replication instance

  • Select the desired profile 

  • Connect to Salesforce

  • Connect to Database

  • Select an Object from the Objects tab by clicking the check box next to it.

  • Click Run and from the drop-down menu select the functionality you want to perform

For this example let us consider: Clean Copy

  1. You will be redirected to the LOGS screen where you can check the status

2. Click on EXPORT from the top navigation toolbar

  • From the left panel under SCHEMA click the check boxes for selecting the various schema you want. The Query builder will consider all these variables for creating a table.
  • Click on RUN

This table has details of all accounts from the database

  • Now if any changes are made to any account in the Saleforce instance you can update that information directly by running the UPDATE command. This will update the information newly added into the Account in the Salesforce instance in the database.
  • Click the checkbox next to the account name which you want to update the new information which has been added to the Salesforce instance.

4. Click UPDATE

For example: let us consider the following:

Changes have been made to the contact information: Phone number into the once of the accounts. When you click the checkbox next to the account and click UPDATE the information will get updated into the database

  • The number of records which were updated will appear in the table section below the query builder as shown below:

  • Once you click REFRESH the Salesforce instance for that account will get RESTORED to the actual details reflected in the database. 
  • For example: Refresh the Salesforce instance and you will see that the contact information will be updated into the original details that was in the database for that account.
