Limitations

  • Unsupported SOQL: This configuration allows to use of a custom SOQL (Salesforce Object Query Language) syntaxto query and filter data. With SOQL, you can retrieve the data from a single object or multiple objects that are related to each other. You can pick specific columns and filter or sort the output with your own conditional statement. As a limitation, our data connector doesn’t support SOQL syntax such as count() FROM Object and SELECT * from salesforceObject.
  • Bulk API limits. Bulk : Bulk API offers faster ingestion but also has a limitation of 10,000 batch allocations within a 24-hour period. If your target is large, your entire available batch allocation might be consumed, causing your job to fail eventually. If you try to use the Bulk API, and the result is the ingestion of all records, consider enabling the synchronous transfer only option and using REST API. The use of REST API avoids the batch allocation limitation but might be slower.
