 Account acc= [SELECT Id, Name, Phone, Website FROM Account WHERE Id = :accountId];  
 return acc;  

Can any one help me out please........ Thanks, sarvesh.

  • Can you try with authorization type 'Bearer' instead of 'OAuth? – Torsen Nov 2 '15 at 10:36

Salesforce does not support basic authentication for REST calls.

Probably the most appropriate authentication to use is OAuth 2.0 JWT Bearer Token Flow where a certificate is used to secure the Salesforce to Salesforce access. See An Apex implementation of the OAuth 2.0 JWT Bearer Token Flow for how to make the request in Apex.

Once the access token is obtained it can be used to authenticate the REST requests:

HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest();
req.setHeader('Authorization', 'OAuth ' + accessToken);
  • Hi Keith C, Thanks for your replay but can you give example for salesforce rest callout – sarvesh Nov 2 '15 at 10:02
