I recently signed up for a Salesforce Professional Edition. But I can't authorize the org with sfdx. WTF ? In the sales pitch it says with Profesional Edition you can have "Unlimited Custom Applications: build apps and customize Salesforce to meet your customers needs" and it also says for 25$ extra I can have "Web Services API: Connect external systems and data to Salesforce using web services APIs, including REST, SOAP, and more." which I haven't purchased yet. Does that include sfdx ? Do I have to pay more to be able to build LWCs ?

When I do sfdx auth:web:login and succesfully login I get this message:

Could not retrieve the username after successful auth code exchange in org: <orgid>.
Due to: Expected parsed JSON data to be an object

Is this a problem with sfdx or my professional Editiion org ?

The Salesforce CLI uses REST and SOAP APIs of the salesforce.

For Professional Edition these APIs are enabled at extra cost and you will need to request these throw your AE as documented here.

Unlimited Custom Applications: build apps and customize Salesforce to meet your customers needs

The above means in your professional edition org you can install apps from AppExchange!

  • Here it says that I can't develop in the Production Environment, which I think is what I'm in ? It says Profesional edition comes with one Dev Sandbox. Can I connect sfdx to that ? And how do I get my sandbox ?
