Data Map - Delete Source Object after conversion

Posted by Meryk on 13-Nov-2015 03:29


I am using a data Map and want to delete the source object after the conversion. This option exists in the Data Map itself, which is nice.

Now it is saying : "Note: this setting will be ignored if map is used in workflow action or trigger." I was wondering when we can actually make usage of this? as a Data Map will always be used in either a Trigger or a Workflow. 

Is that correct? 

Thank you

Hi -

Data Map's can be used in a general record conversion flow as well (apart from trigger & workflow), i.e. select a record from list view and click on convert.

Hi Manooj,

Is that the only case where the source object can be deleted using that option then ?

Yes, it works only in that case.

Hi Meryk,

Just wanted to confirm that selecting that checkbox deletes the record used for conversion and not the object.
