Skuid and the Salesforce data model

Skuid models build and run Salesforce SOQL queries to return lists of individual records, as well as aggregations and groupings, on both standard and custom objects.

Skuid does not use API calls when accessing/updating object data with its native Salesforce data source. Skuid respects the security model configured on the data model.

When changes are saved to Salesforce objects, any backend process automation, like Apex triggers and workflow rules, will fire server-side.
