Use JavaScript and TypeScript Functions

If you're developing your Function using JavaScript or TypeScript, here are some considerations to keep in mind.

Use the Salesforce SDK for Node.js Functions

Salesforce provides the Salesforce SDK for Node.js Functions specifically for Functions written in TypeScript. This SDK provides classes to securely and efficiently access Salesforce org resources.

Salesforce SDK isn't needed for JavaScript development.

See Salesforce SDK for Node.js Functions.

Set and Access Environment Variables

Use the Salesforce CLI to set environment variables in your Functions compute environments, and then access them in your JavaScript Function code as regular system variables. See Environment Variables for more details.

Utilize Logs

A Logger instance is provided to JavaScript Functions at invoke-time. For more details on using this instance see Generate Log Information in Your Function Code.
