Configure your Salesforce account to collect data
To collect data from Salesforce, create a Salesforce account with the following permissions:
- (Optional) A security token created for the account to access the Salesforce Rest API. For instructions on how to create a security token, see Reset your security token. Note that a security token is not required if your machine IP is within the Salesforce trusted ip range.
- (Optional) You need a Salesforce App if you want to use OAuth authentication. When you add an account in the Splunk Add-on for Salesforce and you choose OAuth 2.0 authentication as your authentication type, you see a redirect URL. You must copy this URL and paste it into your Salesforce App.
- To collect Salesforce object data, you have to have read access to the Salesforce objects you want to get data from.
- To collect Salesforce event log data, you have to have read access to the Salesforce event log and enable the Salesforce event log file API. For any questions about this API, please contact your Salesforce admin or Salesforce sales representative.
