CData Python Connector for Salesforce Chatter

Build 21.0.7930

Following

Retrieve the items, such as other users, files, and opportunities that the user is following (is subscribed to). Restricts results to the authenticated user by default.

Table Specific Information

Select

If UserId is not specified, queries to this table return a list of users that the authenticated user is following. When UserId is specified in the WHERE clause, the provider will use the Salesforce Chatter API to filter the results by UserId. The = operator is allowed.

Other filters are executed client side within the provider. For example, the following queries are executed to the Salesforce Chatter APIs:

SELECT * FROM Following
SELECT * FROM Following WHERE UserId = 'abc123'
You can turn off client-side execution by setting SupportEnhancedSQL to false in which case any search criteria that refer to any other columns will cause an error.

Id [KEY] String 18-character ID of the follow.
UserId String Queried user Id.
CommunityId String Id of the community. Is null if this following is in the default community or if communities are disabled.

Pseudo-Columns
