Salesforce Org to Org Lead Migration

(0 reviews)

home

Moves a large set of leads from one Salesforce organization to another.

You can trigger the application with an HTTP call manually or programmatically. Leads are upserted so that the migration can be run multiple times without worrying about creating duplicates.

Parent accounts of the leads are created if they don't exist in the destination system, or can be set to be a specific account for all leads that are migrated. This template uses batch to efficiently process many records at a time.

License Agreement

This template is subject to the conditions of the MuleSoft License Agreement. Review the terms of the license before downloading and using this template. You can use this template for free with the Mule Enterprise Edition, CloudHub, or as a trial in Anypoint Studio.

Use Case

As a Salesforce admin I want to migrate Leads from one Salesforce organization to another one.

This template serves as a foundation for the process of migrating leads from one Salesforce instance to another, being able to specify filtering criteria and desired behavior when a lead already exists in the destination org.

As implemented, this template leverages the Mule batch module.

The batch job is divided in Process and On Complete stages.

Migration process starts from fetching all the existing Leads that match the filter criteria from Salesforce Org A.

On Process stage matched leads are grouped and inserted or updated in Salesforce Org B.

Finally during the On Complete stage the template outputs statistics data to the console and sends a notification email with the results of the batch execution.

Considerations

To make this template run, there are certain preconditions that must be considered. All of them deal with the preparations in both, that must be made for the template to run smoothly. Failing to do so can lead to unexpected behavior of the template.

Salesforce Considerations

Here's what you need to know about Salesforce to get this template to work:

As a Data Source

If the user who configured the template for the source system does not have at least read only permissions for the fields that are fetched, then an InvalidFieldFault API fault displays.

java.lang.RuntimeException: [InvalidFieldFault [ApiQueryFault 
[ApiFault  exceptionCode='INVALID_FIELD'
exceptionMessage='Account.Phone, Account.Rating, Account.RecordTypeId, 
Account.ShippingCity
^
ERROR at Row:1:Column:486
No such column 'RecordTypeId' on entity 'Account'. If you are attempting 
to use a custom field, be sure to append the '__c' after the custom field 
name. Reference your WSDL or the describe call for the appropriate names.'
]
row='1'
column='486'
]
]

As a Data Destination

There are no considerations with using Salesforce as a data destination.

Run it!

Simple steps to get this template running.

Running On Premises

In this section we help you run this template on your computer.

Where to Download Anypoint Studio and the Mule Runtime

If you are new to Mule, download this software:

Note: Anypoint Studio requires JDK 8.

Importing a Template into Studio

In Studio, click the Exchange X icon in the upper left of the taskbar, log in with your Anypoint Platform credentials, search for the template, and click Open.

Running on Studio

After you import your template into Anypoint Studio, follow these steps to run it:

  • Locate the properties file mule.dev.properties, in src/main/resources.
  • Complete all the properties required as per the examples in the "Properties to Configure" section.
  • Right click the template project folder.
  • Hover your mouse over Run as.
  • Click Mule Application (configure).
  • Inside the dialog, select Environment and set the variable mule.env to the value dev.
  • Click Run.

Running on Mule Standalone

Update the properties in one of the property files, for example in mule.prod.properties, and run your app with a corresponding environment variable. In this example, use mule.env=prod.

Once your app is all set and started, there is no need to do anything else. The application polls Salesforce to see if there are any newly created or updated objects and synchronizes them.

Running on CloudHub

When creating your application in CloudHub, go to Runtime Manager > Manage Application > Properties to set the environment variables listed in "Properties to Configure" as well as the mule.env value.

Once your app is all set and started, if you choose as domain name sfdcleadsync to trigger the use case you just need to browse to http://sfdcleadsync.cloudhub.io/syncleads and a report is sent to the emails you configured.

Deploying a Template in CloudHub

In Studio, right click your project name in Package Explorer and select Anypoint Platform > Deploy on CloudHub.

Properties to Configure

To use this template, configure properties such as credentials, configurations, etc.) in the properties file or in CloudHub from Runtime Manager > Manage Application > Properties. The sections that follow list example values.

Application Configuration

Application Configuration

  • http.port 9090

API Calls

Salesforce imposes limits on the number of API Calls that can be made. Therefore calculating this amount may be an important factor to consider. The template calls to the API can be calculated using the formula:

1 + X + X / ${page.size}

X is the number of leads to be synchronized on each run.

Divide by ${page.size} because, by default, leads are gathered in groups of ${page.size} for each Upsert API call in the commit step.

For instance if 10 records are fetched from origin instance, then 12 API calls will be made (1 + 10 + 1).

Customize It!

This brief guide provides a high level understanding of how this template is built and how you can change it according to your needs. As Mule applications are based on XML files, this page describes the XML files used with this template. More files are available such as test classes and Mule application files, but to keep it simple, we focus on these XML files:

  • config.xml
  • businessLogic.xml
  • endpoints.xml
  • errorHandling.xml

config.xml

This file provides the configuration for connectors and configuration properties. Only change this file to make core changes to the connector processing logic. Otherwise, all parameters that can be modified should instead be in a properties file, which is the recommended place to make changes.

businessLogic.xml

Functional aspect of the template is implemented on this XML, directed by one flow responsible of executing the logic.

For the purpose of this particular Template the mainFlow uses a batch job, which handles all the logic of it.

endpoints.xml

This file provides the inbound and outbound sides of your integration app.

This template has only an HTTP Inbound Endpoint as the way to trigger the use case.

HTTP Inbound Endpoint - Start Report Generation

  • ${http.port} is set as a property to be defined either on a property file or in CloudHub environment variables.
  • The path configured by default is syncleads and you are free to change for the one you prefer.
  • The host name for all endpoints in your CloudHub configuration should be defined as localhost. CloudHub routes requests from your application domain URL to the endpoint.
  • The endpoint is configured as a request-response since as a result of calling it, the response is the total of leads migrated and filtered by the criteria specified.

errorHandling.xml

This file handles how your integration reacts depending on the different exceptions. This file provides error handling that is referenced by the main flow in the business logic.
