Application Configuration in Salesforce Portal for OAuth2 Account to use in Salesforce

In this article

Snaps in the Salesforce Snap Pack use the Salesforce OAuth2 account to access the Salesforce application. For the OAuth2 account to function without any issue, ensure to create and configure a Connected App corresponding to the account as explained in the steps below. These steps also contain the information required to create/define a new OAuth2 account for using this Snap Pack.

Create a Connected app in Salesforce Portal

  1. Log into the Salesforce portal.

  2. Click the Setupicon on the top-right of the page and select Setup.

  3. Navigate to PLATFORM TOOLS>Apps>App Manager.

  4. Click New Connected App.

  5. Enter the following required basic information to help identify your app in the Salesforce dashboard.

    • Connected App Name: Enter a unique name for the app.

    • API Name: The API name is automatically populated.

    • Contact Email: Enter your email id.

  6. Select Enable OAuth Settings checkbox under API (Enable OAuth Settings).

  7. Enter all the required callback URLs (to which the response should be sent) in the Callback URL box. After successful authentication, Salesforce redirects to this Callback URL.
    See for more information about how to get the Callback URL.
    Note: You can specify multiple Callback URLs, but ensure to enter each URL in a separate line.

  8. Select the required OAuth Scopes. Scope determines the level of access that you want to provide to your application.
    Note: When you sign into Salesforce app, you must subscribe to refresh_token and offline_access scopes. 

  9. Click Save and wait for few minutes for the app to work.

  10. After configuring the Connected App, you will receive the Client ID and Client Secret. Open the App that you have just created and note the Client ID and Client Secret.

When providing the Callback URL during your configuration, if you are working with Salesforce Snaps, then adding Callback URL for Salesforce should be sufficient. However, if you are working with REST Snaps besides Salesforce, then you must add a Callback URL for REST as well.
