Salesforce Connector (Sandbox vs Production)

Hello,

 

I would like to be able to distinguish between the Salesforce Connector used to connect to our Sandbox environment vs the one used to connect to Production.

 

I have two Salesforce Connections available to flow (one each for Sandbox and Production) but both are labeled “Salesforce” with no way of distinguishing which one is which when creating flows. 

 

Does anyone have a good method of distinguishing the Salesforce Connections between Production and Sandbox?

 

Thank’s in advance

Hi @Gunsmoke125 ,

 

At present, there are several methods for customizing the name of the connection:

  • The email account used to create the connection automatically becomes the connection name, such as some applications in Office 365.
  • Get the username and automatically use it as the connection name, such as Twitter or Instagram.
  • When creating a connection, you are prompted to enter a custom connection name.

 

In other cases, we may not be able to identify the connection created by different accounts, which is something that is not covered. If you want these features to be improved, please consider submitting your suggestions in the Flow ideas forum:

Alternatively, please consider creating these connections in different Flow environments to make it easier to distinguish.
