I am new to eclipse and force.com. I have followed the instructions on the developer site to install eclipse and set it up for force.com. But when I create a new force.com project and provide the credentials, I get an error that they are incorrect. I have tried all the combinations for the environment. login_details

  • Also, you can log in to your org in your browser, navigate to your user record and see the related list of login history. Verify that you can see failed login attempts in the related list. If you don't, you don't have the correct username or environment. Commented Feb 9, 2015 at 1:12
  • @VK: I tried all possible combinations.

  • to be frank Peter, I am following the book and web site and learning. Can you please tell me how can I navigate to the user record. I may be in the record but I don't see where I can login history. Will google as well.

    Since there is a separate field for Security Token, you don't need to ALSO append it to the password in the password field. The IDE does the appending for you when it logs in. Commented Feb 9, 2015 at 7:04

Please correct your username.Your username should be in the form of an email address, for example: [email protected].

  • yep I had a correct user id but as I was posting it online I masked it :)
