I just wanted to understand one thing here for Pardot syncing, what happen when I unverify the connection and migrate data into Salesforce? does this migrate all the leads/contacts from Salesforce to Pardot automatically when enable connection again?

The connector does not create prospects retroactively. If you use the setting 'Automatically create prospects in Pardot if they are created in Salesforce', those prospects are created only after the connector is installed and this setting is enabled. This is what pardot documentation says about this:

Pardot creates a prospect when a lead or contact with an email address that is not already associated with a prospect is created in Salesforce. An email address is required on the lead or contact record to sync to Pardot. This setting is not retroactive and creates prospects only for those leads and contacts created after this setting has been enabled.

However, if this feature is enabled later on, then leads and contacts with email addresses that were created after the Pardot package was installed in Salesforce will be pushed down to Pardot. So when you reverify and you have not removed the Pardot package from Salesforce, Leads and Contacts created in the meantime will sync.

Alternatively, create a report of all new leads and contacts after unverifying the connector, and add these leads and contacts to a campaign in order to push those campaign members to a pardot list after reinstalling the connector.

  • Hey Thanks Fred for your reply, actually i found the answer which is matching with yours. Just wanted summarized here like, if package is already installed, checkbox "Automatically create prospects in Pardot if they are created in Salesforce" is checked and you have unverified the connection for migrating data into Salesforce then it will sync all your data (Lead+Contacts with email id) into pardot automatically. And if that checkbox was not checked at the time of yous migration and in future if you enable that checkbox in that case it also sync the migrated data into pardot. – Dildar Hussain Jun 11 '18 at 5:13
  • Hi Dildar, you are right about this. In fact given your use case this behaviour is to your advantage. I edited my answer to reflect this. This only works if you didn't remove the Salesforce package since only Leads and Contacts that are created after the installation of the Pardot package in your org get synced. – Fred Jun 11 '18 at 7:17
