Let’s say you want to connect to a service that determines if credit is extended to a Salesforce account. You also want to know the payment terms. With External Services, you:
- Supply a named credential, a URL, and authentication settings. Salesforce uses this information to make callouts to the external service.
- Enter a schema URL path (or endpoint) or provide a complete schema.
- Create a flow based on the Apex classes generated from your external service registration using Salesforce’s point-and-click automation tool.
When you run the flow, the output contains the credit decision and, if applicable, payment terms. The wizard walks you through the process.
