Why can I not map the Record Type field on my Salesforce object?

Issue

You have an object in Salesforce that has a Record Type field but cannot find that field in Heroku Connect when mapping the object.

Resolution

The Record Type field on objects in Salesforce is defined as a lookup field. This means that it is not API accessible and the field you want to map is RecordTypeId. This will allow you to look up the name for the record type if you also use Heroku Connect to synchronize the RecordType object from Salesforce.
