I have signed for a trail licence and want to investigate SOQL function. When I login into the workbench and select Sandbox it redirects me to test.salesforce.com I enter my Salesforce credentials it cannot authenticate. I have tried chrome and firefox, tried clearing the cookies and cache but no success. Salesforce login works fine


Trial editions of Salesforce are production instances, not sandboxes. Choose Production and use your trial credentials, and you should be able to log in to Workbench.

  • Hi David thanks for the prompt reply Jul 26 '19 at 2:42
  • I am using the credentials uname/pwd and now I am seeing in Production API_DISABLED_FOR_ORG API Not enabled for this org or partner Jul 26 '19 at 2:44
  • @Grahama Sounds like you've chosen to trial an edition of Salesforce that doesn't provide API access. You'll probably want to discuss that with your AE.

  • Hi David, quite odd as I was following a tutorial which said first thing is sign up for a Salesforce Trail licence then follow the script. Looks like there may have been a few prereqs not mentioned. Jul 26 '19 at 3:14
