How to Maximize Data Processing Efficiency with OmniStudio Integration Procedures

Salesforce has revolutionized the way organizations manage their customer data with the introduction of powerful tools like OmniStudio. In this blog post, we’ll explore one of the key features of OmniStudio—Integration Procedures—and how you can leverage them to enhance your data processing capabilities.

Understanding the Power of OmniStudio Integration Procedures

Imagine you have a wealth of data from various sources that needs to be processed and transformed before it can be used effectively. Here’s where Integration Procedures come in. They are declarative, server-side processes that enable you to execute multiple actions in a single server call.

Integration Procedures are highly flexible, allowing you to read and write data from Salesforce and external systems, call Apex code, and even perform list processing with Loop Blocks and List Actions. They excel at tasks that require data transformation from third-party sources and don’t necessitate user interaction.

Real-World Example: Simplifying Customer Onboarding

Let’s say you work for a telecommunications company, and part of your job is to onboard new customers. During the onboarding process, you need to validate and enrich customer data from multiple sources, such as credit agencies and address verification services.

By using an Integration Procedure, you can automate this data validation and enrichment, ensuring a seamless onboarding experience. The Integration Procedure can fetch data from external systems, perform data quality checks, update Salesforce records, and even trigger a follow-up process like sending a welcome email.

Best Practices for Harnessing the Power of Integration Procedures

1. Break Down Complex Processes: When designing an Integration Procedure, it’s important to break down complex processes into smaller, manageable steps. This modular approach not only improves maintainability but also allows for better error handling and reusability.

2. Leverage Caching: If you’re working with large datasets or frequently accessed data, consider implementing caching mechanisms. Caching helps reduce database round trips and significantly improves performance. Salesforce provides built-in caching capabilities for DataRaptors and Integration Procedures.

3. Plan for Error Handling: While Integration Procedures offer robust error handling capabilities, it’s crucial to plan for potential failure scenarios. Leverage conditional logic, error handlers, and proper logging to ensure that your Integration Procedures are resilient and can handle exceptions gracefully.

4. Optimize Long-Running Processes: Sometimes, you may encounter scenarios where an Integration Procedure takes a long time to execute. In such cases, consider leveraging chainable and queueable settings to avoid hitting Salesforce governor limits. You can also use Apex Continuations to support long-running calls.

5. Stay Security-Conscious: Remember to implement proper access controls and permissions for your Integration Procedures. Consider using Salesforce’s built-in security mechanisms such as Sharing Settings, Sharing Sets, Profiles, and Permission Sets to ensure data privacy and compliance.


OmniStudio Integration Procedures are a game-changer for Salesforce users looking to maximize their data processing capabilities. With the right approach and best practices, you can leverage Integration Procedures to automate complex processes, streamline data transformations, and unlock new efficiencies in your organization.

Our clients say

From my initial call with Spencer through project implementation with John and Evan, my experience with the SOLVD team was excellent. They were quick to understand our business needs, clear when explaining the reasoning behind proposed solutions, transparent when reporting on progress and timeline, and all around enjoyable to work with. Would highly recommend and looking forward to continue working with them in the future!

SOLVD was very straight forward with everything needed to complete the project. No surprises, no issues, and cost was aligned with the estimate. They made implementation easy and quick.

As a rule, I'm pretty stingy with my recommendations. So it's a pleasure for me to recommend Solvd as a top-flight Salesforce consultancy. Solvd recently led our company's conversion to the Lightning interface and did it on time, on budget and made it easy for me and my team. I know I'll use their services again, and am confident they can do the same for you.
