I am trying to connect Talend to Salesforce.

I complete the Salesforce connection settings in Talend:

  1. User Id
  2. Password
  3. Security Token

And then try to test the connection, and I get this error message:

IOException: [LoginFault [ApiFault exceptionCode='INVALID_LOGIN'

And the Salesforce Login Audit log says:

Status: Invalid Password

Yet I can log in via Chrome and the Security Token was generated today and copy and pasted into Talend.

What could possibly be going wrong?

My password contained lots of special characters, which Talend did not seem to like.

After changing the password to something else, and getting the new security token, it worked.
