RE: Token-Based Authentication -Will this work? User A creates a Token User B with Role for integration
If my (A) user creates a token that is used by an integration and the integration is accessed by a user (B) with the role will that work, and if my user is deactivated does it deactivate the token?
I want to follow best practices. We are considering having a user separate from my own admin user to be the credentials to login and have the roles to manage our integrations. The previous “admin/accountant lead/wore too many hats” has a user that is still active in the system since I haven’t cracked into it and figured out what and where this particular user manages. I’m considering of making it an overall integration user. Is this a bad practice?
Hi everyone new user here. I have 5 years admin experience with Salesforce and about 3 months with NetSuite, and find the documentation not as informative and a bit frustrating to parse. I am fairly active at the Salesforce Exchange Discord (SFXD), an unofficial community of Admins, Developers, Architects, Vendors, and a handful of Salesforce Employees, it’s a great space and if you also Admin Salesforce check us out. I spoke on their behalf a couple of years ago for a short presentation at Dreamforce in 2018: Using Lightning Flows to Automate User Onboarding.
No. You can take a look at Error Messages for RESTlets, SOAP Web Services, and REST Web Services for a list of common errors. Although you havent really explained your scneraio very well, the token used for your integration must be an active token for an active user using an active role.
Your scenario may fall under the permission_denied section, though your actual error message may vary depending on what type of integration you have
