Plinqx Best Practices


When working with Plinqx to enhance your Salesforce environment, following best practices in API creation, Apex interface design, and Flow configuration is crucial. This guide provides insights into these practices, ensuring your Plinqx integrations are efficient, maintainable, and scalable.

Best Practices for Creating APIs

  1. API Versioning:

    • Implement versioning in your API endpoints to manage changes and maintain backward compatibility. Example: /leads/v1/create.
  2. Consistent and Descriptive Naming:

    • Use names that clearly describe the API's purpose. Consistency in naming conventions facilitates easier identification and maintenance.
  3. Documentation:

    • Maintain comprehensive documentation for each API, including its purpose, usage, and any specific considerations.

Best Practices for Apex Interfaces and Flows

  1. Efficient Apex Design:

    • Ensure Apex classes and methods are optimized for performance and adhere to Salesforce Governor Limits.

    • Include error handling to gracefully manage exceptions.

  2. Modular Flow Design:

    • Design Flows that are modular and reusable across different processes. This enhances maintainability and reduces duplication.
  3. Avoid DML Operations and Queries in Loops:

    • In Flow designs, avoid placing DML operations (insert, update, delete) or SOQL queries inside loops to prevent hitting governor limits.
  4. Test Coverage:

    • Ensure adequate test coverage for Apex classes and triggers. This not only meets Salesforce requirements but also assures the reliability of your code.
  5. Use of Bulkified Patterns:

    • Implement bulkified patterns in both Apex and Flows to efficiently handle large data volumes without hitting limits.

General Best Practices

  1. Reusable Components:

    • Wherever possible, create reusable components, whether in Apex, Flows, or other configurations. This approach promotes efficiency and consistency across your integrations.
  2. Regular Review and Optimization:

    • Periodically review and optimize your integrations for any new Salesforce updates or changes in business requirements.
  3. Leverage Salesforce Features:

    • Utilize built-in Salesforce features and functionalities to their fullest potential to achieve optimal results with minimal custom coding.


Adhering to these best practices while working with Plinqx in Salesforce ensures that your integrations are not only effective but also aligned with Salesforce's recommended standards. By following these guidelines, you can create robust, efficient, and scalable solutions within your Salesforce environment.
