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