DML Operations in Visual Flow

This post is a work in progress about how the database operations (DML operations) work in Visual Flow, and how to use them optimally.

Database Functions:

  • Fast Create
  • Fast Delete
  • Fast Lookup
  • Fast Delete
  • Record Create
  • Record Delete
  • Record Lookup
  • Record Update

Deleting Records

What Happens if No Records Match the Filter Criteria?

Delete operations will throw a Fault if no records are found that match the filter criteria.

.

Therefore, if you don’t know for sure if records exist that will match the filter criteria, you cannot do a Record Delete by itself.

Instead you must do a Lookup then check to see if records exist before you perform the delete.
