I'm doing data migration and need to upload ~500k Notes. 192k Notes were uploaded and now I'm getting Note can't be saved error via API and Note contains characters that can't be saved when trying to create any Note with any text via UI.

I think it some kind of daily limit because our storage limit is far from being reached but I can't find any documentation on this thing.

Did you do Notes migration and did you encounter similar issues? Or just have an idea of what can cause this?

  • Check out these two help articles from salesforce and if you have a more specific question we can try to resolve that. To me, this looks like a data formatting issue where some of the special characters are present in note body and that is not accepted by the database. Sep 4, 2019 at 9:23
  • You can't insert Notes at all. Any Notes with any text, from UI too. Please read actual question text before writing comments

The standard limit on inserting ContentVersion, which underlies Notes, is 200,000 per day. I suspect you've reached that limit.

Unfortunately, I am not aware of a way to view the consumption of this limit within the org. It's not available in System Overview or via the Limits API. You may need to wait a day for it to roll over.
