ballerinax/salesforce.bulk Ballerina library



Salesforce Bulk API is a specialized asynchronous RESTful API for loading and querying bulk of data at once. This module provides bulk data operations for CSV, JSON, and XML data types.

This module supports Salesforce Bulk API v1.


Before using this connector in your Ballerina application, complete the following:

  1. Create Salesforce account
  2. Obtain tokens - Follow the steps listed under OAuth 2.0 Web Server Flow for Web App Integration.


To use the Salesforce connector in your Ballerina application, update the .bal file as follows:

Step 1: Import connector

Import the ballerinax/salesforce.bulk module into the Ballerina project.

import ballerinax/salesforce.bulk;

Step 2: Create a new connector instance

Create a ConnectionConfig with the OAuth2 tokens obtained, and initialize the connector with it.

onfigurable string clientId = ?;
onfigurable string clientSecret = ?;
onfigurable string refreshToken = ?;
onfigurable string refreshUrl = ?;
onfigurable string baseUrl = ?;

ulk:ConnectionConfig sfConfig = {
   baseUrl: baseUrl,
   auth: {
       clientId: clientId,
       clientSecret: clientSecret,
       refreshToken: refreshToken,
       refreshUrl: refreshUrl

ulk:Client bulkClient = new (sfConfig);

Step 3: Invoke connector operation

  1. Now you can use the operations available within the connector. Note that they are in the form of remote operations.
    Following is an example on how to insert bulk contacts using the connector.
son contacts = [
       description: "Created_from_Ballerina_Sf_Bulk_API",
       FirstName: "Morne",
       LastName: "Morkel",
       Title: "Professor Grade 03",
       Phone: "0442226670",
       Email: ""

ublic function main() returns error? {
   bulk:BulkJob insertJob = check bulkClient->createJob("insert", "Contact", "JSON");

   bulk:BatchInfo batch = check bulkClient->addBatch(insertJob, contacts);
  1. Use bal run command to compile and run the Ballerina program.
