Rendering Object Details instead of Object ID
In some scenarios, you might want to show object details (e.g. User full name) instead of object ID in the Details View dialog.
For example, if you add a Created By field for Case object, it will appear as an ID like this:
To replace the ID with something meaningful, you may add the object to the Available Salesforce Objects, which in this case is a User object:
The connector will use this configuration to automatically translate the object ID:
Notice the primary field is automatically chosen to replace the object ID.
