Installation and Upgrade

The following SOQL queries are not supported for the guess schema and guess query features of tSalesforceInput:

  • the SOQL query using the aggregate function

  • the SOQL query using the TYPEOF expression

  • the SOQL query using alias

  • the prefix in the SOQL query is the same as the module name after FROM

    For example, SELECT Account.Name, (SELECT Contact.LastName FROM Account.Contacts) FROM Account is not supported, while SELECT Name, (SELECT LastName FROM Contacts) FROM Account that performs the same function is supported.

  • the SOQL query with multiple modules after FROM

    For example, SELECT Contact.Firstname, Account.Name FROM Contact,Contact.Account is not supported. However, the child-to-parent and parent-to-child relationship queries are supported, so this query can be improved to SELECT Firstname, Account.Name FROM Contact.

  • the SOQL query using toLabel()

  • the field with the underscore character '_' in its name

Besides, the underscore character '_' in any custom field name needs to be manually replaced with the dot character '.' in the generated SOQL query.
