Connect iPaaS enables you to select specific events and filter out the rest using certain attributes of the incoming FinancialForce event. This ability allows selective processing of the events of interest.
In the example shown below, the workflow will be triggered only when the "Birthdate" of the newly created FinancialForce contact is after 5/1/2016 AND the name of its "Department" is FinancialForce Dev.
The event filter allows you to choose the incoming trigger event's attributes to define the selection criteria of events to process. In the case of FinancialForce, Connect iPaaS utilizes the metadata API provided by FinancialForce. Therefore, all the fields related to the selected object in FinancialForce will be available to you.
