I am currently using Salesforce Service Cloud with a Lightning Professional licence.
I wish to be able to use the Salesforce API to withdraw information from Salesforce. However after looking into this on the website I have found that the licence I have cannot use the APIs.
'To use SOAP API, your organization must use Enterprise Edition, Performance Edition, Unlimited Edition, or Developer Edition.'
Is there anyway I can access the API functionality without having to upgrade to the Lightning Enterprise licence which is double the price per user?
Update: I have read that there used to be an option of an additional add-on for the API functionality to be available with Professional Licence, is this still available? If so what is the additional cost?
