Is fieldsToNull supported for outbound messaging notifications ?

Hi all,


I am currently seeing that for outbound messaging, the fieldsToNull element does not seem to be populated.

The field is indeed on the schema, and I see on other posts that it does get populated. (e.g. http://community.salesforce.com/t5/Java-Development/Outbound-Messaging-Delivery-Status-SOAP-response...).


I can't see an obvious configuration change on the Outbound Message that would help. Does anyone know if there is any way of getting fieldsToNull populated ?


The net effect seems to be that if a Contact has 10 blank field values, and a new single (11th) field is blanked, the resulting notification will not specify which field was just blanked. It simply omits all the (optional) elements for all 11 blank fields ...


Thanks, Conor.

AFAIK fieldsToNull is only used when updating or creating a record.
