Do Salesforce validation rules pass through to SalesLoft

    Hey Miguel, 

    I also love clean data. Short answer, validation rules don't necessarily pass through to SalesLoft. 

    A few things to consider:

    • Should the SL Users be working from SalesLoft or Salesforce? I see an even split, but for teams with very complex/customized SFDC instances it may be best to work in SFDC to respect all validation rules.
    • Have you set most of your field configurations to unidirectional or bidirectional? The bidirectional values entered in SL will fail if:
    1. There's a validation rule preventing it from syncing (If field X has value A, but requires value B when field Y has value C)
    2. Picklist values don't match

    Of course, you may not always be able to prevent failed syncs, a few helpful resources:

    Best,

    Ryan
