  • These parameters are optional and can be used based on the specific requirements.
  • The SFAPI Parameters are available for operations- Create, Delete, Query, Update and Upsert.
  • These parameters are not common across APIs and are specific to certain API Entities only.
  • Example:, For  'Create' action of "USER" entity, SFAPI parameters[managerTransfer:true, routeInboxDoc:false] to set the managerTransfer parameter to "true" and routeInboxDoc parameter to "false" in case of manager change of an employee.
