Map Record Type with Salesforce to Salesforce

Knowledge Article Number 000001007

By default, you can't map the Record Type field in Salesforce to Salesforce. However, there is a workaround that you can try. 

Workaround to map Record Type

  • Have the sending organization create text field that's automatically updated with the Record Type name via a Work Flow Rule.
  • Have the receiving organization create a text field to receive the incoming value and then setup a Work Flow Rule to update the Record Type field based off of this value.
  • Map the two newly created Text Fields together.
