I am attempting to recreate the sample console application found at https://github.com/developerforce/Force.com-Toolkit-for-NET/tree/master/samples/SimpleConsole.

This also leverages the NUGET package https://www.nuget.org/packages/DeveloperForce.Force/.

Everything seems pretty straightforward and I have a username/password.

Where things fall apart is that I need to get a clientid/clientsecret setup in my Salesforce sandbox. The documentation says to go to Setup > Develop > Remote Access and create a new entry. From that you will get the needed values.

However Since Winter '15 was released, Remote Access now goes to Create > Apps. From what I can read and see, there isn't a place for me to get the clientid/clientsecret.

What do I have to do in Winter '15 to get a clientid/clientsecret?

Once you have created a connected app at the bottom of the "Apps" page, do not click on "Edit" or "Manage" but instead click on the connected app name which is a hyperlink. That "Connected App Name" page will show the "Consumer Key" and the "Consumer Secret" (once you click on "Click to reveal" link).

  • @JasonW Yes. You can add a fake callback URL such as "fake.com".
