I believe from an outside system you will need to first get an auth token and then use that to call the service you are using. So below I have listed the steps you would need to use to get what you see.

Create a new Connected App enter image description here

From the Connected App get he Consumer Key and Consumer Secret

User the following format to get your auth token in POST request (User test or login based on sandbox or developer/production org:

https://"Login or test".salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token?client_id="Consumer-Key"&client_secret="Consumer-Secret"&username="UserName"&password="Password-SecurityToken"&grant_type=password

Get access_token from below response

      "access_token": "AccessTokenHere",
      "instance_url": "URL",
      "id": "Id",
      "token_type": "Type",
      "issued_at": "Issued",
      "signature": "Signature"

Send GET request with new access token as header in following format: Authorization: Bearer access-token

I hope this helps.

  • You're right. It make sense what you're saying. Without getting access_token, I am getting "message": "Session expired or invalid", "errorCode": "INVALID_SESSION_ID". I will try to get the access_token and will let you know if it works.. Apr 21, 2017 at 17:17
