Configure Salesforce Authentication

Salesforce REST API to extract data from a Salesforce repository via a Salesforce Connected App.

In addition to a user password, Salesforce authentication requires a security token automatically generated by Salesforce.

  1. Obtain the security token by following Reset Your Security Token in Salesforce’s online help.

  2. Append the token to the end of the value found in the Salesforce password property in your Salesforce datasource configuration.

    For example, if your password is PasswordABC, and your security token is 0123456789, the value of the Salesforce password property should be PasswordABC0123456789.

You must request a new Salesforce security token if the user password is changed. If this happens, alter the value of the Salesforce password property to match the new password and security token.
