If you have the Salesforce Id in the source data then you can map it directly without using a lookup relationship:

One the Mapping page for an Insert Job you will choose which source fields should map to which Salesforce fields.

Update & Upsert

On an Update or Upsert Job, you will have the same mapping options as the Insert Job, plus an additional mapping to select which Source and Salesforce fields should be used to determine which records to update:

For Update Jobs, you can choose any Text, Number, or Id Field to match records. For Upsert Jobs, you can choose any Field marked as External Id.


For a Delete Job, you simply choose the source field, which contains the Salesforce Id values for the records which you want to Delete.
