TDV Adapter for Salesforce Chatter

Build 21.0.8137


Retrieve User details.

Table Specific Information


The adapter will use the Salesforce Chatter API to process filters based on the following columns: CommunityId, GroupId, Id (the primary key), or a combination of two Ids. Allowed operators are = and AND.

Filters on other columns are executed client side within the adapter. For example, the following queries are executed to the Salesforce Chatter APIs:

  • Return all users belonging to a group:
    SELECT * FROM Users WHERE GroupId = 'abc123'
  • Return only info related to a certain user:
    SELECT * FROM Users WHERE Id = 'myUserId'

You can also use the Salesforce Chatter API to filter through Users: Set the SearchTerms parameter to match DisplayName values. This parameter does not search not email addresses, titles, and so on.

SELECT * FROM Users WHERE SearchTerms = 'test?'

Note: The use of wildcards is permitted when filtering Users:

  • * matches zero or more characters at the middle or end of your search term.
  • ? matches only one character in the middle or end of your search term.
