Salesforce Winter '21 Release Update
This major Salesforce update comes with a big improvement to event monitoring: ISV and OEM partners now have access to additional event information as well as a full set of new event types. On top of that, all integrations can now be tested with the newly introduced App Analytics Simulation Mode.
New Event Types
Salesforce continues to add support for additional event types. This update adds a total of 5 types to the list of supported events. Events triggered through the following channels are now fully supported by the App Analytics API:
Apex Batch Jobs
Apex SOAP Web Services
Apex Scheduled Jobs
ISVapp supports all event types provided by the App Analytics API. Head to our Helpcenter to learn more about all event types that are currently covered by the API.
Additional Event Information
Salesforce now tracks events originating from Sandbox organizations. Result data will therefore now include new information that allows you to distinguish between Production and Sandbox events. Additionally, Apex class and method names, as well as details regarding the newly supported Platform Events have been added to the results returned by the API.
The following fields will be included in any result data that has been requested after the Winter ‘21 Release rollout:
App Analytics Simulation Mode
This mode allows you to test App Analytics query request insertion in any development environment. While you had to go through the effort of creating a separate test environment or even tested directly in your production Partner Development Organization (PBO), you now have the possibility to test your integrations in a dedicated test environment.
