Delete Tracking

Delete Tracking gives users the ability to track records that have been deleted through the Salesforce UI, ETL, etc. This means that your GRAX dataset stays up to date as users or automation remove records from your Salesforce org in between backups.

GRAX only tracks deletes on records which were already backed up to the GRAX data vault.

How do I enable it?

Delete Tracking is enabled by default for all customers to run once per hour.

How Does it Work?

Each hour, an automated GRAX process looks for deleted records across all backed up objects. The Salesforce API provides a list of deleted records, and GRAX flags any records in the vault matching the list provided by Salesforce as Deleted.

GRAX uses this API call to get deleted records and as such is governed by any limits placed by Salesforce.


Salesforce doesn't support Content objects (ContentDocument, ContentVersion, or ContentDocumentLink) for this type of delete tracking. The Attachment object, however, is supported.
