Set Connection Mode for Connected Salesforce Objects in One Place

To eliminate potential conflicts, you now specify the connection mode for each connected Salesforce object in one place. This feature applies only to objects that use the Salesforce Local Connector. Previously, conflicts could arise because you could set this property for the same object in multiple places. You could set the “incremental” property in the sfdcDigest node of one or more dataflows. You could also set the connection mode in the Connect page. We also added Full Sync as a connection mode option.

Where: This change applies to Einstein Analytics in Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic. Einstein Analytics is available in Developer Edition and for an extra cost in Enterprise, Performance, and Unlimited editions.

How: To set the connection mode on the Connect tab of the data manager, select Edit Connection Mode from the dropdown for the connected object. This option doesn’t appear for objects that support full sync only.
The Connect tab shows all connected objects and contains a dropdown for each object.
Next choose the connection mode. Notice the new Full Sync option.
The Edit Connection Mode page shows all modes, where Incremental Sync is the default.

When you change the incremental setting for a connected object or save changes to an sfdcDigest transformation, Analytics cleans up connection mode conflicts. To eliminate conflicts, Analytics maintains a single setting for each connected object and removes the incremental settings from the dataflow JSON. If you change the incremental setting in the dataflow JSON and upload the JSON, Analytics updates the connection mode and then removes the setting from the JSON.
