On 'Document'.

Authentication and everything is successful, even calls to 'describe' are successful but

'updated/deleted' return NOT_FOUND.

It seems like the examples could use a little work. I was able to get it to work by url encoding the start and end date. Also saw got the NOT_FOUND error but by the end of things couldn't tell you how.




{ "latestDateCovered" : "2013-12-13T00:00:00.000+0000", "ids" : [ "015123456789iLOAAY" ] }

  • Yes, it's quite weird. Thanks for the response. My actual use case is to be notified of any new documents uploaded to the account - { I could potentially use the StreamingApi but my entire infrastructure is based on REST, while the StreamingApi uses Bayeux protocol} - do you think 'updated/deleted' are the best choices for the same. I saw that Box has something called Long Polling - [link](developers.box.com/using-long-polling-to-monitor-events/[link] .. is there a REST equivalent of the same in Salesforce ?

  • That's a really good question, could you repost as a separate question? As a general rule a QA site is a lot better if each discussion focuses narrowly on the original question. Dec 16, 2013 at 23:41
  • I just filed a doc bug on this - thanks for posting!

  • @metadaddy - also, the documentation says we need to pass in the date time in UTC zone ... when I do pass in something like this start=2013-12-18T07:25:10+0000 - it returns parsing exception. If however, i send start=2013-12-18T07:25:10-0800 - it works. Dec 18, 2013 at 19:28
  • Are you sure you're urlencoding the '+'? What exactly are you passing when it returns the parsing exception?

For me, it was the trailing slash before the question mark!

Once I removed that, it worked.

Example: /services/data/v29.0/sobjects/Document/updated?start=2013-12-01T00%3A00%3A00%2B00%3A00&end=2013-12-13T00%3A00%3A00%2B00%3A00
