Salesforce.com Adapter: Ability to select all fields for mapping without the need of updating SOQL - Select * from Object

One of the main drawbacks for SOQL and mapping fields was that we have to first add fields in the SOQL query and then add perform mapping. We now have a better solution .

DBSync's Salesforce adapter is now enabled with powerful "select * from object" feature. DBSync now enables the user to use "select * from object" in retrieving data from salesforce.com .

By using "*", similar to ANS SQL standards, DBSync Salesforce Adapter can translate it to retrieve all fields for the corresonding "from" object. When used with a Reader, it will provide Process Modellers to dynamically retrieve all fields from that Object in Salesforce.com, thus reducing thier time to maintain the fields in the Query. These fields will be now available during creating of maps from the Mapping Screen.

New User Interface of DBSync Console

DBSync console has received a new tweak and more user friendly Interface.

  • The Interface received a new Quick Start Button instead of Get Started.
  • A new button called Log Viewer is a new addition to the User Interface.
  • A new toggle button called Manage that consists of Edit and Delete button for Profiles.
  • Create Profile Button is now placed at the bottom of profiles Section.

Delete confirmation for profiles
