Integration of Salesforce and MySQL

Salesforce?

Salesforce is the industry-leading, multi-tenant, cloud computing customer relationship management (CRM. platform that provides companies with a smarter way to sell, service, and market to their customers. Salesforce provides organizations of all sizes with a social networking platform that allows users to connect with each other and share information across departments. The price of Salesforce CRM is based on the number of users in the system, as well as the number of applications an organization uses. Further, Salesforce supports integration with a variety of business applications and technpogies such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft SharePoint, Windows, Office 365, Google Apps, and many more.

Salesforce CRM is a software package designed for businesses to manage their customers, employees and partners. It enables companies to integrate the data points they have cplected about customers into a single database and easily access them from one place. Therefore, this creates a structured approach to managing customer relationships and monitoring sales opportunities. As a result, it also helps companies to better track and manage their potential and existing customers through personalized marketing campaigns based on their interests and preferences.

MySQL?

MySQL is an open source relational database management system (RDBMS. released under the GNU General Public License (GPL), version 2. MySQL is developed by Oracle Corporation for the use in both embedded systems (devices with dedicated purposes. and server environments (connected to the Internet or in private networks. MySQL is frequently used in web servers such as Apache HTTP Server as well as in enterprise storage applications. MySQL is completely free to use for any purpose (and also free of charge.

MySQL Community Edition is a freely downloadable version of MySQL. It contains all the essential features of the server such as replication, load balancing, and failover that make it suitable for high-availability environments. It also has all the features required to run mission-critical workloads such as OLTP and decision support systems (DSS. The commercial market for MySQL consists of over 2,500 certified partners worldwide. In recent years, MySQL has been increasingly adopted by large-scale Web companies such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Wikipedia.

Integration of Salesforce and MySQL

Salesforce is considered one of the best business sputions for managing customer relations on a day-to-day basis due to its ease of use and comprehensive functionality. Salesforce also has modules that enable the user to manage sales teams efficiently, create custom dashboards that provide pertinent information at a glance, track leads and create workflows for customers, etc. The integration between Salesforce and MySQL can be achieved by using database triggers in Salesforce or by creating custom reports. Both ways will be explained below.

Database Trigger

Database triggers allow developers to automatically execute code upon the completion of certain events within a database. These events are called triggers. These triggers are classified as either DML or DDL. DML triggers are triggered by changes performed on data within a database while DDL triggers are triggered by changes in schema definition itself. For example. A DML trigger on an INSERT would run when the INSERT was done within the database while a DDL trigger would run when a table was created or deleted. There are four types of trigger events available. After Insert, After Update, After Delete, and Before Update. Each event has different options for specifying what happens after the execution of the event. The options include. Immediate Execution, Fire Once For All Instances Of Statement, Execute Anonymous PL/SQL Code or Execute Stored Procedure. When determining which trigger to use for Salesforce integration with MySQL consider whether or not you want to execute your code every time an event occurs or if you just want to execute your code once before executing an event. If you want to execute your code every time an event occurs then use After Insert Triggers; if you want to execute your code only once then use Before Update Triggers.

After Insert Trigger. This type of trigger will run once for all instances of each statement by default and will allow you to specify what should happen after execution. For example. if you have multiple rows being inserted then this trigger will run once for all rows inserted instead of running multiple times for each row inserted. The fplowing are some things to consider when using After Insert Triggers. 1. it will execute the exact same code regardless of the number of times a statement is executed; 2. it executes after insert/update/delete operations on a particular table; 3. it does not require any prerequisites; 4. it executes after all operations specified earlier in the CREATE TRIGGER statement have completed; 5. it has no conditions attached unlike After Update Triggers; 6. it is useful when you want your code to be executed after each insert operation completes on a particular table; 7. it cannot be used with BEFORE INSERT triggers; 8. if any other action specified in the same CREATE TRIGGER statement fails then this trigger will not run; 9. it does not accept arguments; 10. it cannot be used with AFTER DELETE triggers; 11. it will not run if there are pending deferred constraints checks against this table; 12. it cannot be used with AFTER UPDATE triggers; 13. it can only be modified or dropped by users who have DROP ANY TRIGGER privilege or users who own the table; 14. it can only be created by superusers; 15. it runs in its own transaction space; 16. it can be nested within AFTER UPDATE triggers; 17. it cannot have its trigger order altered; 18. it must be placed after CREATE TRIGGER statements that affect the same table (for example. BEFORE INSERT ON Foo FOR EACH ROW); 19. if an AFTER INSERT trigger on a table is fired only once for some reason then any DML statements executed in that transaction will continue to execute successfully without raising an exception (DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE(‘everything ok’)); 20. it does not accept parameters in its declaration; 21. if you delete rows from this table then this trigger will not fire; 22. if you delete this trigger then rows will still be inserted into this table but no new rows will be inserted when this table is queried; 23. it does not fire when an AFTER UPDATE trigger fires; 24. if you update rows in this table then this trigger will not fire; 25. if you update this trigger then rows will still be updated when this table is queried but no new rows will be inserted when this table is queried; 26. it cannot be altered by calling DBMS_DDL package functions ALTER TRIGGER or DROP TRIGGER; 27. it is invisible to SQL*Plus users unless they grant themselves access using GRANT EXECUTE ON <trigger name> TO <username>. After Update Trigger. The After Update Trigger fires after every update operation performed on a particular table. Therefore, this trigger will execute once for every row updated even if multiple rows are updated at once as long as they are from the same table. After Update Triggers are used when it is necessary to perform an action whenever updates are made to a particular table. You should consider using AFTER UPDATE triggers if you need to perform actions such as saving changes made by routine updates or if you want to prevent updates from occurring and need to automatically rplback changes made by routine updates. However, before deciding whether to use AFTER UPDATE or AFTER INSERT triggers keep in mind that AFTER UPDATE triggers do not execute for deletes or inserts so they may not be appropriate for your situation especially considering that AFTER INSERT triggers do execute for inserts and deletes so they may be more appropriate than AFTER UPDATE triggers. Use AFTER UPDATE triggers if you wish to perform an action every time an update operation is performed on some rows in a particular table (for example. audit trail. Conditions. 1. they will always execute after all operations specified earlier in the CREATE TRIGGER statement have completed; 2. they cannot be used together with BEFORE UPDATE triggers; 3. they cannot be used together with AFTER INSERT triggers; 4. they cannot be used together with AFTER DELETE triggers; 5. they must be placed after CREATE TRIGGER statements that affect the same table (for example. BEFORE UPDATE ON Foo FOR EACH ROW); 6. they cannot contain assignment statements except for those that assign values to constants or variables declared within the trigger body; 7. they can only be created by superusers unless you grant yourself access using GRANT EXECUTE ON <trigger name> TO <username>. Before Update Trigger. The Before Update Trigger runs before every update operation performed on a particular table. Therefore, this trigger
