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


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? – Pankaj Ganwani Jan 28 '16 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. – Chris Edwards Jan 28 '16 at 19:49
  • Great stuff, happy to help. – Chris Edwards Jan 28 '16 at 19:52
