Salesforce Flow Limit


Interview: An interview is a running instance of a flow.


What are SOQL and DML?

SOQL (Salesforce Object Query Language) and DML (Data Manipulation Language) are two languages that handle different operations inside a flow.

SOQL: It is a specific type of computer language that we can use to communicate with the system to retrieve a specific set of data. It is like saying β€œgive me all accounts that John owned” but using the language the system understands. Each request is called a query.

DML: Like SOQL, It is a specific type of computer language to modify a particular data set, like saying β€œchange all John account rating into Hot”. Each request is called a statement.
