About

Creates a Salesforce Opportunity record with the given parameters and returns the id of the new Opportunity record.

This handler essentially has two phases: authentication and record creation.

  • The handler uses the SOAP API login method to retrieve the authentication details that are required for making the REST API requests. The required authentication values are instance and session id, these two values are retrieved by the login() helper method in the handler.

  • The handler uses the REST API to create the Salesforce record. The Salesforce record simply contains mappings provided by the @field_values instance variable. The handler's parameters are mapped to Salesforce fields in the node.xml as show here:

    • Opportunity Name => Name
    • Close Date => CloseDate
    • Stage => StageName
    • Private => IsPrivate
    • Type => Type
    • Lead Source => LeadSource
    • Amount => Amount
    • Next Step => NextStep
    • Probability => Probability
