tSalesforceOutputBulk and tSalesforceBulkExec components are used together to output the needed file and then execute intended actions on the file for your Salesforce.com. These two steps compose the tSalesforceOutputBulkExec component, detailed in a separate section. The interest in having two separate elements lies in the fact that it allows transformations to be carried out before the data loading.

Component family




tSalesforceOutputBulkExec executes the intended actions on the .csv bulk data for Salesforce.com.


As a dedicated component, tSalesforceOutputBulkExec gains performance while carrying out the intended data operations into your Salesforce.com.

Basic settings

Use an existing connection

Select this check box and in the Component List click the relevant connection component to reuse the connection details you already defined.


When a Job contains the parent Job and the child Job, Component List presents only the connection components in the same Job level.


Login Type

Two options are available:

Basic: select this option to log in to Salesforce.com by entering your Username/Password on tSalesforceConnection.

OAuth2: select this option to access Salesforce.com by entering your Consumer key/Consumer Secret on tSalesforceConnection. This way, your Username/Password will not be exposed to tSalesforceConnection but extra work is required:


Salesforce Webservice URL

Enter the Webservice URL required to connect to the Salesforce database.


Salesforce Version

Enter the Salesforce version you are using.


Username and Password

Enter your Web service authentication details.

To enter the password, click the [...] button next to the password field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the password between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.


Consumer Key and Consumer Secret

Enter your OAuth authentication details. Such information is available in the OAuth Settings area of the Connected App that you have created at Salesforce.com.

To enter the consumer secret, click the [...] button next to the consumer secret field, and then in the pop-up dialog box enter the consumer secret between double quotes and click OK to save the settings.

For what a Connected App is, see Connected Apps. For how to create a Connected App, see Defining Remote Access Applications.


Callback Host and Callback Port

Enter your OAuth authentication callback url. This url (both host and port) is defined during the creation of a Connected App and will be shown in the OAuth Settings area of the Connected App.


Token File

Enter the token file name. It stores the refresh token that is used to get the access token without authorization.


Bulk file path

Directory where are stored the bulk data you need to process.



You can do any of the following operations on the data of the Salesforce object:

Insert: insert data.

Update: update data.

Upsert: update and insert data.

Delete: delete data.


Upsert Key Column

Specify the key column for the upsert operation.

Available when Upsert is selected from the Action list.



Select the relevant module in the list.


If you select the Use Custom module option, you display the Custom Module Name field where you can enter the name of the module you want to connect to.


Schema and Edit Schema

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields (columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. The schema is either Built-In or stored remotely in the Repository.

Since version 5.6, both the Built-In mode and the Repository mode are available in any of the Talend solutions.

Click Edit schema to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property: choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection: choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata again in the [Repository Content] window.

Click Sync columns to retrieve the schema from the previous component connected in the Job.

This component offers the advantage of the dynamic schema feature. This allows you to retrieve unknown columns from source files or to copy batches of columns from a source without mapping each column individually. For further information about dynamic schemas, see Talend Studio User Guide.

This dynamic schema feature is designed for the purpose of retrieving unknown columns of a table and is recommended to be used for this purpose only; it is not recommended for the use of creating tables.

Advanced settings

Rows to commit

Specify the number of lines per data batch to be processed.


Bytes to commit

Specify the number of bytes per data batch to be processed.


Concurrency mode

The concurrency mode for the job.

Parallel: process batches in parallel mode.

Serial: process batches in serial mode.


Wait time for checking batch state(milliseconds)

Specify the wait time for checking whether the batches in a Job have been processed until all batches are finally processed.


Use Socks Proxy

Select this check box if you want to use a proxy server. In this case, you should fill in the proxy parameters in the Proxy host, Proxy port, Proxy username and Proxy password fields which appear beneath.


Ignore NULL fields values

Select this check box to ignore NULL values in Update or Upsert mode.


Relationship mapping for upsert (for upsert action only)

Click the [+] button to add lines as needed and specify the external ID fields in the input flow, the lookup relationship fields in the upsert module, the lookup module as well as the external id fields in the lookup module.

Additionally, the Polymorphic check box must be selected when and only when polymorphic fields are used for relationship mapping. For details about the polymorphic fields, search polymorphic at http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/api_asynch/.

Column name of Talend schema: external ID field in the input flow.

Lookup field name: lookup relationship fields in the upsert module.

External id name: external ID field in the lookup module.

Polymorphic: select this check box when and only when polymorphic fields are used for relationship mapping.

Module name: name of the lookup module.


  • Column name of Talend schema refers to the fields in the schema of the component preceding tSalesforceOutput. Such columns are intended to match against the external id fields specified in the External id name column, which are the fields of the lookup module specified in the Module name column.

  • Lookup field name refers to the lookup relationship fields of the module selected from the Module list in the Basic settings view. They are intended to establish relationship with the lookup module specified in the Module name column.

  • For how to define the lookup relationship fields and how to provide their correct names in the Lookup field name field, go to the Salesforce website and launch the Salesforce Data Loader application for proper actions and information.

  • Select the Polymorphic check box only for the polymorphic fields. You get an error if you omit this check box for a polymorphic field. You also get an error if you select it for a field that is not polymorphic.


tStatCatcher Statistics

Select this check box to gather the Job processing metadata at a Job level as well as at each component level.

Global Variables

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl + Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For further information about variables, see Talend Studio User Guide.


This component is mainly used when no particular transformation is required on the data to be loaded into Salesforce.com.


The bulk data to be processed in Salesforce.com should be .csv format.
