tSalesforceConnection – Docs for ESB Sales Force 7.x

tSalesforceConnection

Opens a connection to Salesforce.

tSalesforceConnection Standard properties

These properties are used to configure tSalesforceConnection
running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard
tSalesforceConnection component belongs to the Business and the Cloud families.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend
products
.

Basic settings

Property Type

Select the way the connection details
will be set.

  • Built-In: The connection details will be set
    locally for this component. You need to specify the values for all
    related connection properties manually.

  • Repository: The connection details stored
    centrally in Repository > Metadata will be reused by this component. You need to click
    the […] button next to it and in the pop-up
    Repository Content dialog box, select the
    connection details to be reused, and all related connection
    properties will be automatically filled in.

Connection type

Select the type of the connection from the drop-down list. The
connection properties will vary according to the connection type you choose.

  • Basic: select this option to
    access Salesforce by entering your Salesforce username and password.

  • OAuth: select this option to
    access Salesforce using OAuth (Open Authorization) 2.0 protocol to authenticate the
    user. From the Oauth2 flow type drop-down
    list displayed, you need to choose an OAuth 2.0 authentication flow type, either
    Json Web Token Flow or Implicit Flow (Deprecated) (User Agent Flow). This
    way, you need to create a connected app in Salesforce to configure a Salesforce
    authentication provider.

    For more information about the OAuth authentication flow, see Authenticate Apps with OAuth.

    For more information about how to create a connected app in
    Salesforce, see Create a Connected App.

This property is available
only when the Basic connection type is selected.

The expiration time of the assertion (in seconds) within five
minutes.

This property is available only
when the OAuth Json Web Token Flow type is selected.

Key store

The path to the keystore file in Java Keystore (JKS) format.

The keystore file can be generated by creating a certificate signed by
Salesforce and then exporting it to keystore. For more information, see Generate a Self-Signed Certificate.

This property is available only
when the OAuth Json Web Token Flow type is selected.

The keystore password.

This property is available only
when the OAuth Json Web Token Flow type is selected.

created and shown in the connected app detail page in Salesforce. For more information,
see Create a Connected App.

This property is available
only when the OAuth Implicit Flow type is selected.

Callback Host

The host value in the OAuth authentication callback URL that is
defined during the creation of a connected app and will be shown in the API (Enable OAuth Settings) area of the connected app
detail page in Salesforce.

This property is available
only when the OAuth Implicit Flow type is selected.

Select this check box if you need to use bulk data processing
function.

Use or save the connection
session

Select this check box and in the Session
directory
field displayed, specify the path to the connection session file
to be saved or used.

This session file can be shared by different Jobs to retrieve a
connection session as long as the correct user ID is provided by the component. This
way, you do not need to connect to the server to retrieve the session.

When an expired session is detected, if the correct connection
information (the user ID, password, and security key) is provided, the component will
connect to the server to retrieve the new session information and update the connection
session file.

Salesforce.

Use Proxy

Select this check box to use a proxy server, and in the Host, Port,
User Id, and Password fields displayed, specify the connection parameters of the proxy
server.

variable and it returns a string.

Usage

Usage rule

This component is more commonly used with other Salesforce components.

Connecting to Salesforce using OAuth implicit flow to authenticate the user
(deprecated)

In this scenario, the OAuth2 (Open
Authorization 2.0) method is adopted to authorize tSalesforceConnection to access the Salesforce resources. This way, better
security is achieved as users do not need entering their Salesforce username/password directly
on tSalesforceConnection, which is required by the
Basic login type instead.
