Creating a Salesforce Connection

To use the plug-in activities, you must create a Salesforce connection using the Salesforce shared resource. The Salesforce shared resource describes the connection between the plug-in and the Salesforce.com server.

Procedure

  1. In the Project Explorer view, expand the created application module and right-click the Resources folder, click New > Salesforce Connection Configuration.
  2. Click Finish in the Salesforce Connection window.
  3. Configure the related fields in the Salesforce Connection editor.
    See Salesforce Connection for more details.
  4. Click Test Connection to validate the connection.

What to do next

After creating the Salesforce connection, fetch the Salesforce metadata from the Salesforce.com server when selecting a Partner WSDL for your project. For more information, see Getting Metadata. The metadata is the key part of the database operations.
