DevOps Center

DevOps Center provides an improved experience around change and release management that brings DevOps best practices to your development team, regardless of whether team members prefer clicks, code, or a bit of both.

Sandboxes on Hyperforce: Quick Clone

Quick Clone accelerates developer productivity by letting teams rapidly create replica Developer and Developer Pro sandboxes—so that they can reduce idle developer time, work in parallel, and build more-efficient continuous integration jobs.

Flow Builder Enhancements

Is manual testing on every update too time-consuming? With the new Flow Automated Testing, you can now turn manual debug into automated tests and run every test scenario with a single click.

Flow Orchestration Enhancements

Now users are empowered to collaborate faster by completing tasks in Experience Cloud using Flow Orchestration's Work Guide. In addition, admins can empower other users to help spot bottlenecks and fast-track work using supervisor permissions.

AWS Partnership Enhancements

Our partnership with AWS makes it easier to build and launch applications, natively leverage AWS services, and securely connect data and workflows across Salesforce and AWS. Expanding on the partnership, we're adding Event Relays for AWS and Salesforce Connect Adaptor for Athena to the toolkit.

Publish-Subscribe API

The Pub/Sub API has better performance and game-changing features like real-time publish responses, subscription flow control, and 11 supported languages.

Private Connect Enhancements

Route API traffic through a private, bidirectional connection between Salesforce data centers and Amazon Web Services to avoid the public internet. Now available in EMEA and APAC.

Privacy Center: Preference Manager

Preference Manager is now available to help you manage customer consent and communication preferences. Build low/no code forms with filters for brand, data use purpose, and channel type. Drop your customized form into any web page and automatically update Salesforce records and objects. 

Manage Your Preferences page in Preference Builder

Security Center Enhancements

Now you can see additional information about your connected tenants so you have a fuller picture of the details and information from these orgs. You can also use standard Salesforce reporting on all Security Center objects.

Scoping Rules Enhancements

Scoping Rules help end-users focus on the records that are relevant to their job. In wealth management, for example, sales associates have access to far too many records since they support multiple financial advisors and teams. With Scoping Rules, the sales associate can choose a "scope," and limit the records they can see to increase productivity. Scoping rules are far more flexible than just wealth management, and can be used as a replacement for Divisions (Classic only) or other scenarios where users may need to focus on a specific brand, department, branch, or other grouping.
