Salesforce connector updates We’ve updated our Salesforce connector to provide faster performance, greater flexibility and even more data to play with. First, we changed the way we connect to Salesforce data; the connector now dynamically switches APIs depending on how large your dataset is, greatly increasing performance. Additionally, the Salesforce connector also now supports using the SOQL language in the same way that Custom SQL can be used today, adding flexibility to your analysis. Finally, you will now be able to connect to additional data objects like Salesforce Activity History and Campaign Influence, giving you even more data to see and understand in Tableau. Snowflake connector updates We’ve added Snowflake Role support. It is now possible to override the default role in the Snowflake dialogue, and the role defined in the connection can be applied in OAuth scenarios.
