Learning Objectives:-

This unit describes:-

  • How to publish platform event using the inbound interface?

Introduction:-

  • Salesforce platform event provides an event-bus for streaming and integration using event-driven publish/subscribe architecture. Creating an event can be done using the inbound or outbound interface.
  • With the inbound interface, we get data from the outside and with this data, we can create an event into the Salesforce bus.
  • Platform events enable developers to deliver secure, scalable, and customizable event notifications within the Salesforce platform or from external sources. Platform events are based on a publish-subscribe architecture.
  • We added new functionality to create and consume platform event and we need to see what and which event is on the event bus.
  • In Skyvva we can enrich the event data with mapping and process the data after we have mapped the event/message.
  • If the customer doesn’t have Skyvva he needs to do all the mapping and transformation using Apex code in the trigger.
  • Hence these are the added value with Skyvva. So in this tutorial, you will get to know How to publish platform event using the inbound interface?
