Does outbound message counts as async apex call?


can someone tell me if you configure an outbound message, if this also counts as an async apex call in the limits?

Hi Stefaan Somers 11
Unfortunately your test is flawed. What you're missing here is that using the Developer Console uses API calls to the Tooling API (it's a little crazy that these are counted, I know)!

The API call limit includes inbound calls only. Outbound calls (i.e. callouts) are only governed by the per transaction and maximum timeout limits.

The Salesforce Developer Limits Quick Reference should contain all the information you need.
Please mark it as best answer if it helps you to fix the issue.

Thank you!

So if I call a configured outbound message through a workflow, this is also counted as async apex call??
