Record sync error handling

Certified Lead Developer


I have a record type configured to sync data sourced by a web service with a scheduled sync that runs once a day. Everything works seamlessly as long as the webservice returns data as expected.

IF in case the daily sync fails for some reason (for example: a connection timeout when calling the webservice) then all the record data is removed from Appian causing errors in the rules and interfaces that use this record type. Ideally, I would expect Appian sync to fail BUT retain the last synced data instead of cleaning it up and causing the record type to be inaccessible.

Is there a way to work around this issue other than by writing additional logic in the record source expression to backup data before calling the integration and then restore if something goes wrong?

Would love to hear your suggestions/ideas.
