What are the field datatypes that can be used as external IDs in Salesforce?
What is an external ID in salesforce? What are the field datatypes that can be used as external IDs?June 26, 2018 at 12:35 pm #29323September 19, 2018 at 1:16 am #35187shariq #1
Auto-number fields can be external IDs. Salesforce.com might be the source of record without explicitly using salesforce.com ID values, which may be case insensitive depending on the other application, which can cause unwanted complications. Using an auto-number field avoids case-sensitive ID values that might otherwise confuse systems not designed to handle such ID values, like Excel (which is, by default, case sensitive).
Hope this helps.September 20, 2018 at 5:49 pm #35796Parul #2
Salesforce allows you select up to 3 fields as External IDs and these fields must be text, number or email field types. Values in these External ID field must also be unique and you can also determine whether or not value are case sensitive.September 30, 2018 at 12:32 pm #41781
