I have 2 different users in force.com i.e user1 and user2. I have developed a rest resource in user1. IF user2 logs in by using a connected app after OAuth authentication, I want to access the rest resource developed in user1 by providing the username,password,clientID,client secret etc.

Is this scenario feasible if so what shud be the callback urL? Here is where I am stuck?

Thanks krishna Casukhela

  • I am using sandbox api instance. is it mandatory to create an integration profile? can I manage with system admin profile? – Krishna Casukhela Jun 13 '16 at 14:40
  • It's good to have separate API user profile but not required.You are good to go with admin but do this only for testing purpose.In real time scenario it's too much permission provided to an API user. – Mr.Frodo Jun 13 '16 at 14:54
  • Hi cud u pls clarify? I am stuck here. In User1, I have created connected app,enabled Oauth, and set callback url='ap2.salesforce.com/apex/RestApiResponse' where RestApiResponse is an visualforce page. In User2, in remote site settings, I register as "login.salesforce.com", then comes the controller. request.setEndPoint('login.salesforce.com/services/oauth/token'). But the I do not get the JSON string. It shows Invalid URL... – Krishna Casukhela Jun 13 '16 at 16:17
  • did you check the link i shared in my first comment? You won't have any issue if you only follow that. – Mr.Frodo Jun 13 '16 at 16:53

What i have understood from your question is you are using Username and Password flow to get accesstoken aka SessionID. In this flow one does not need a callback URL. You can check it here https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.api_rest.meta/api_rest/intro_understanding_username_password_oauth_flow.htm

But when you create a Connected app, it asks you provide callback URL(which is used by other 2 Flows of Oauth namely Webserver flow and UserAgent flow) which is not needed by you at the moment. So you can provide dummy value like "https://www.google.com" or any URL starting with HTTPs.
