Support for SFDC Partner WSDL

Question asked by rob.banas on Apr 27, 2017

Hi all, has anyone used a SalesForce Partner WSDL with Boomi?

Salesforce generates 2 types of WSDLs, Enterprise and Partner. The primary differences are: 

 

Enterprise WSDL:
a) The Enterprise WSDL is strongly typed.
b) The Enterprise WSDL is tied (bound) to a specific configuration of Salesforce (ie. a specific organization's Salesforce configuration).
c) The Enterprise WSDL changes if modifications (e.g custom fields or custom objects) are made to an organization's Salesforce configuration.

 

For the reasons outlined above, the Enterprise WSDL is intended primarily for Customers.

 

Partner WSDL:
a) The Partner WSDL is loosely typed.
b) The Partner WSDL can be used to reflect against/interrogate any configuration of Salesforce (ie. any organization's Salesforce configuration).
c) The Partner WSDL is static, and hence does not change if modifications are made to an organization's Salesforce configuration.

Right now we're using Enterprise WSDLs and if there's a change to the underlying SFDC configuration, this requires us to regenerate maps used in our process to ensure the changes are caught by Boomi.
