74. How to use Data capture functionality Process Builder with Agent?

A Process Builder is a notification that Salesforce sends when a change to a Salesforce records/fields appear as part of a Create, update, delete, or undelete operation.

Learning Objectives

A Change Data Capture event, or change event, is a notification that Salesforce sends when a change to a Salesforce record occurs as part of a Create, update, delete, or undelete operation.

User has to create Account in SalesForce, it should trigger an event and send this Account Information to MS SQL Server DB of our organization. Once it’s inserted in our SQL DB, it will create particular AccountID and give it back to SalesForce. The notification includes all new and changed fields and header fields that contain information about the change.


The reason users need to accomplice this is our Account creation process used to start from Our own SKYVVA product so it was creating AccountID (Auto Generated) from DB and used from Primary identification for Account across the system. Now we want to create Account from SalesForce but need to keep AccountId generated from SQL DB.

For example, header fields indicate the type of change that triggered the event and the origin of the change. Change events support all custom objects and a subset of standard objects.
