Enterprise WSDL vs Partner WSDL

Salesforce provides two SOAP API WSDLs for two different use cases.

The enterprise WSDL

  • optimized for a single Salesforce org.
  • It’s strongly typed.
  • it reflects your org’s specific configuration, meaning that two enterprise WSDL files generated from two different orgs contain different information.
  • whenever you make a metadata change to your org, regenerate the WSDL file

The partner WSDL

  • optimized for use with many Salesforce orgs.
  • It’s loosely typed.
  • It doesn’t change based on an org’s specific configuration.

Typically, if you’re writing an integration for a single Salesforce org, use the enterprise WSDL. For several orgs, use the partner WSDL.
