Import tool: Salesforce Database Summer '17 (http://www.salesforce.com/)
Import interface: [Database] Data Store (Physical Data Model) via REST API from Salesforce (SFDC)
Import bridge: 'SalesForceObjects' 10.0.1
This bridge authenticates the consumer and retrieves available physical metadata (e.g., Tables).
It uses the username-password authentication flow that assumes the consumer already has the user’s credentials.
When you do not have username-password authentication parameter values but have an access token and your Salesforce instance URL you can specify them using the Miscellaneous parameter (see its description for details). In this case, you still need to fill all mandatory parameters with some text that will be ignored.
In the event that users will be submitting Salesforce Documents, certain security settings must be configured to allow this access on Standard Objects and Custom Objects.
To configure permissions:
- Within Salesforce, click on Setup and then click on Manage Users
- Under the Manage Users tree click on Profiles
- Once the Profiles appear on the right, select which Profile you want to edit and click on the Edit link next to the corresponding profile
Standard Objects: Ensure that the “Documents” section has the Read permissions selected.
Custom Objects: Ensure that the Read permissions selected for each custom objects.
|User||The user name on whose behalf the connection is being made.||STRING||Mandatory|
|Password||The user's password on whose behalf the connection is being made||PASSWORD||Mandatory|
|Consumer Key||The Consumer Key from the connected app definition.||STRING||Mandatory|
|Consumer Secret||The Consumer Secret from the connected app definition.||PASSWORD||Mandatory|
|Objects||List of object names, like 'object1, object2'.
An empty list means that all available objects.
You can specify object names as a wieldcard pattern: 'topic?' , '*topic*' or 'topic_?,*topic*'.
|Miscellaneous||Specify miscellaneous options identified with a -letter and value.
For example, -m 4G
-m the maximum Java memory size whole number (e.g. -m 4G or -m 2500M ).
-v set environment variable(s) (e.g. -v var1=value -v var2="value with spaces").
-access_token the Salesforce access token
It is a 'long' case-sensitive alphanumeric key that is used to temporary (minutes or hours) access Salesforce. When an access token expires, attempts to use it fail. In Salesforce terms, the access token is a session ID (SID), much like a session cookie on other systems. It must be protected against misuse.
-instance_url your Salesforce insatance URL (e.g. -instance_url https://na73.salesforce.com)
