I was looking at the login history of my Salesforce API account and I noticed there was a column for application name. I would love to be able to specify that when performing a login so I can determine which applications are logging in and when.

Right now I am using the SOAP version of their API, but, I didn't see a property I could specify when logging in.

For the Partner API try setting the CallOptions.client to a string value before logging in.

This value is typically provided by Salesforce after you pass the security review and allows you to access Professional edition orgs.



When using the REST API you need to create a Connected App (Setup/Create/Apps). The name of your connected application will be the name displayed in the application column.

If someone knows how to specify a name for the SOAP API I would welcome someone to update my answer.
