Among the multitude of Salesforce licenses, which one is the cheapest for an external user to access <10 custom objects via the API?

I realize that actual prices differ for subscribers and I am not looking for exact figures. I just need the name of the license. Thanks!

  • Do you already have a community set? If you are looking only for 10 objects or less, then Customer Community license could possibly be a fit here. – Jayant Das Jun 4 '19 at 23:34
  • @JayantDas I don't need Communities. The external users just need to stay in sync with SFDC through a couple of API calls. – Mossi Jun 4 '19 at 23:39
  • My bad, I thought External Users as (External) Community Users. Have you seen the Chatter Plus, if that fits here? I am just not aware if it has API access or not. – Jayant Das Jun 4 '19 at 23:44
  • @JayantDas Chatter Free already has API access so I believe Chatter Plus should have it too. The Chatter Plus license should fit but I don't know if it is the cheapest possible option. Do you? – Mossi Jun 5 '19 at 0:18
  • I know that Chatter licenses are usually cheaper than other, so possibly it could be. – Jayant Das Jun 5 '19 at 0:20

I think the current name is Lighting Platform Starter and Starter Plus. Starter gives you access to 10 custom objects and Plus is around 100.

  • Do you know if the Lightning Platform Starter is cheaper than the Chatter licenses? – Mossi Jun 5 '19 at 0:14
