  • It's hard to find hard evidence, since google brings not up very much about "Salesforce External Objects". I heard about that feature in a breakout session during a Partner Forum in London. As a matter of fact, the setup section does not exist in summer'14 but it does exist in winter'15

1 Answer 1


Option A) Use Winter'15 release

This feature is not available in Summer'14 by default. However it is available in my Preview-Org running Winter'15 release.

enter image description here

So you need to register a prerelease Org here https://www.salesforce.com/form/signup/prerelease-winter15.jsp

Option B) On Summer'14 you may try to log a case and ask Salesforce to enable it

as @RobinDeBondt says in his comment it worked for him, but I haven't verified this.

  • I've had it enabled before in one of my orgs (Spring '14), simply by logging a case and asking for the feature activation. Commented Sep 4, 2014 at 10:49
