I talked about the goodies Salesforce Bulk API quite some time ago. I can’t deny that the Bulk API is really useful especially for data migration or integration that involves thousands of records. But, as a Salesforce administrator, it is very important for me to know what data has been retrieved or updated via Salesforce web service. Lucky that Salesforce do provide a console that allows me to monitor the Bulk API job that has been submitted to Salesforce instance. It can be accessed via Setup -> Administration Setup -> Monitoring -> Bulk Data Load Jobs.
- the user who made the request
- object that involved in the request
- total records of the request
- type of operation of the request (e.g, query, create, update, upsert or delete)
