2) If you cannot see your custom MDF entity in the dropdown list of the above screen, please configure your "Admin Center > Configure object Definitions" of your custom MDF object like this:

  • MDF Version History is set to Complete History
  • API Visibility is set to Read Only or Editable
  • Standalone object, not a composite object 

3) Done! You will now be able to see the custom MDF entity inside your SFAPI Data Dictionary > CompoundEmployee:

Please note:

  • For the standard MDF object, only workOrder is allowed.
  • Please include only single/standard object not a composite one. Parent > child relationship will not work in this scenario.
