For example, you can update Leads for sales, update Contacts of prospective sales, update Accounts or Campaigns for these sales etc. To connect Zoho Creator with Salesforce, add a new connection from the Setup - Connections page.

<salesforceResponse> = salesforce.sales.update(<salesforceConnectionName>, <salesforceModuleName>, <salesforceRecordID>, <params>);

<salesforceResponse> is the map variable returned as response. It contains the details of the updates to be made to the record.
<salesforceConnectionName> refers to the connection name used to connect Zoho Creator with Salesforce. Create a new connection from the Setup - Connections page.
<salesforceModuleName> refers to the module name in Salesforce where the record needs to be updated.
<salesforceRecordID> refers to the ID of the record in Salesforce which needs to be updated.
<params> is the map variable that holds the key,value pairs. The map key is the label name in the format as specified in Salesforce. The map value is the field value as submitted from a Zoho Creator application.


A sample script to update a record in the Salesforce accounts module is given below. You can execute this script from a Zoho Creator form by adding it to the required Form Actions block. For example, to edit a record in the accounts module, based on the given record ID,

//get ID of the record to be updated
getResponse = salesforce.sales.getRecords("Zoho","SELECT Name,Id FROM Account WHERE Name='John'");
recordListObj = getResponse.get("records");
if (recordListObj != null)
recordList = recordListObj.toJSONList();
id = "";
for each recordObj in recordList
recmap = recordObj.toMap();
id = recmap.get("Id");
if (id != "")

//Declare Map Variable to hold the account details
Details = map();

//Add the account details to the map variable

//updating the account in the Salesforce accounts module with record ID - "id"
SalesforceResponse = salesforce.sales.update("Zoho", "Account", "id", Details);
