This past weekend I had the opportunity to present at Midwest Dreamin in Chicago, August 10-11, 2017. My session was titled “Tour of Salesforce REST APIs for Multiple DML in Single Request”. Although the sessions were not recorded, I did make my own screen cast a few days prior and have since uploaded it to YouTube. There are no slides as I was demoing a custom app, which you can get the code on GitHub.
In the presentation I cover four API approaches and their pros/cons in a solution:
- Custom Apex
- Composite API
- SObject Tree API
Here’s a photo of me explaining the pros and cons of the traditional approach of making multple API requests sequentially and downside of having no true transaction control.
And here is a screen shot where I’m giving a final overview comparison of each approach.
