Using XI to SalesForce WSDL


We are using R3 as our ERP system and SalesForce as our CRM system and need to synchronize data between the two systems.

we get wsdl from SalesForce and add it to XI as an External Definition.

Then we drad it to message mapping we created and select one of its methods: updateRequest which is the generic methos used to update records in SalesForce.

XI then presents one parent parameter for this sObject method which is of type sObject.

Now the problem: this sObject is a generic SalesForce Object and it should be used to tell SalesForce's WSDL which records we are updating, so for example we now need to set sObject=Account and then get all the relevant data elements for an account update.

But we can not see how to perform this second step of setting sObject=Account.

We did it through XI "Web Services Navigator" tool and were able to use the web service, and set sObject=Account, but could not see how this is done from the XI Integration builder.

I can send you the WSDL and the instructions if needed.

Thank you for your help,
