View the syndication feed definition, including what records are returned, and which data from the records is displayed:
- A descriptive name for this feed, which distinguishes it from other feeds you may create.
- Describes the feed. For example, “Account first name, last name, and region for the last ten accounts created or edited.”
- The SOQL query that defines which records are returned to the syndication feed. To ensure fast performance, some limitations on the SOQL query are imposed. For more information, see Defining Syndication Feeds.
- Because syndication feeds use the ATOM web publishing protocol, you must provide a mapping value that matches objects and fields on the returned records with ATOM constructs. Note that all values must be string literals. For more information about mapping elements, see Defining Syndication Feeds.
- Max Cache Age Seconds
- Because many users may access a feed at the same time, Salesforce caches the feed data, for 3600 seconds by default. This value can be a minimum of 300 seconds, or for as long as you wish. Query results that are older than the time specified here are dropped, and a new query is run on the next request for that information, that is, the next time a user opens a page containing a feed that they have subscribed to.
- This checkbox indicates whether the feed is available for subscription. Once a feed is active, users have the option of subscribing to it.
