Salesforce Developer Security Authentication Api Login
// Salesforce Authentication - API Login: The Salesforce platform has several APIs, based on SOAP and REST, that are avaliable to developers. To use any of the APIs, a user must first authenticate to Salesforce. The two main methods used by developers are: 1. SOAP API username/password login: http://sforce.co/2hjYpDl 2. OAUTH authentication flows: http://sforce.co/2hgUaIh The REST API also permits a hybrid login solution where you can use the SOAP API to authenticate and get a session id. This session id can then be substituted for the “Bearer Token” in the Authorization Header for all subsequent REST API calls. Salesforce implements additional security protections for SOAP API logins. User's attempting to login via SOAP API from outside the org's Trusted IP range will be prompted for additional identify confirmation. This is done via a security token that must be appended to the password. This token can be obtained by users changing their password or resetting their security token from the Salesforce user interface. When a user changes their password or resets their security token, Salesforce sends a new security token to the email address on the user’s Salesforce record. The security token is valid until a user resets their security token, changes their password, or has their password reset.
