I am building an integration between my company's Drupal CMS and our SFDC CRM. I will be using the SFDC SOAP API to accomplish this.
The idea is to do a query via the soap API every time a user logs into our Drupal web site and check for status' set in a corresponding contact record in sales force. This status will in a sense provide an access permission that I want to grant in my Drupal CMS.
My question is this, if I rely upon this Soap API to provide these permssions, will I run into a max allowed API calls via the Soap client?
Does Salesforce monitor the amount of Soap API calls I make in a given month, week, day?
Will they cut the access after a certain amount?
Bare in mind that my company pays for Enterprise SFDC and so far all of the Soap API apps I have integrated to our SFDC instance have not had any problems with access limitations.
I plan to contact SFDC directly, but I was hoping someone here may have some experience with this kind of integration question.
Thanks in advance for any info you may provide.
