I'm writing an application that needs to connect and grab some data from Salesforce. Data will be pulled by a background script (no UI) and then populated in a web UI.
I can't find anything explaining how authentication can be achieved in this specific scenario when I don't have any login/pass flow, meaning the oauth2 grant_type=password is totally inadequate in this case.
Since my script will work in background, a grant_type=client_credentials could work, an API key as well ...
Can someone please point me in the right direction?
