I am trying to login to Salesforce using Salesforce Workbench. I want to use the session ID, instead of the usual username/password process. Any ideas?

    If you have a valid SessionID you won't have to log in at all, you can just pass it on your call. What are you trying to do? – Sebastian Kessel Jul 9 '19 at 20:41

Salesforce has several options that do not use the username/password to retrieve the session ID.

They are documented, here

There is a good Trailhead that will guide you through the OAuth 2.0 JWT Bearer Token Flow, here

  • Workbench is a web app that authorizes using OAuth - is there some way to authenticate separately? – David Reed Jul 9 '19 at 23:24
