The batch command groups up the Salesforce API requests done by its child commands. This results in less API requests as well as faster performance with no downsides, so it is recommended to use batch whenever doing several operations in a row.

The only limitation is that batch can only group up operations related to records of the same object type. In other words, all create and update child commands must have the same value for their type attribute, and all delete child commands must specify IDs ofrecords of the same object type.    

Child commands

Any command can be a child of batch, but only Salesforce operations done by child commands create, update and delete will bebatched.


To use batch, just wrap it around commands doing operations to records of the same object type. A set of operations done within a forEach is aprime example of proper batch use.

<batch><forEach value="${testObjectData}" var="data"><create type="Special_Test_Object__c"><field name="Name" value="${}"><field name="Test_Type__c" value="${data.type}">
