Can anyone have any insights regarding the activation of Hard Delete option in salesforce data loader?

1 Answer 1


You need to go into Settings and enable Use Bulk API. It should then appear as an option.

  • I have already assigned a permission set pertaining the 'Bulk API Hard Delete' permission enabled to sys admin but still I am not able to see the activated hard delete option in my data loader. Any guesses? Commented Jan 28, 2016 at 19:41
  • Sorry, I wasn't clear. You also need to go into the settings in the Data Loader application itself and enable that Use Bulk API option and save. Commented Jan 28, 2016 at 19:49
