Pass all errors on to the flow to allow handling specific to the flow requirements

add support for Salesforce and other connectors to continue on error: This would allow the processing to continue if the flow connector encountered an error so it could be handled in a subsequent IF block. Providing this type of control provides the developer to handle all issues appropriate and address any retry/restart requirements. This specifically addresses the cases where the errors occur in a batch flow.

    Idea Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request and for the wider detailed direct discussions you have been having with John Reeve regarding this suggestion and several other enhancements which if implemented could help you extend your designer flows to better meet some of your overall use-case. For the benefit of other readers, we acknowledge that the idea outlined here by Jeff would be for App Connect Designer flows to add support within the Salesforce connector itself to be able to continue when it encounters a processing error (for example, within a wider batch activity) which could then still be analyzed downstream in a subsequent IF block (for example). Whilst we see value in providing this feature to help meet your use-case, we are somewhat concerned that adding this type of specialized support to the Salesforce connector would not provide an easy way to help others who face similar requirements but with other connectors. Given this, on the face of it the future provision of the alternative idea might seem a better choice of the two, as it would allow us to satisfy a wider set of users and usecases. Of course, as is standard with ideas, in both cases we would need to see sufficient traction for the business case in order to take this feature forward into development and product delivery. For now, the status is updated to Future Consideration.
