We're accessing the Salesforce REST API with one of our regular Salesforce user accounts. That use changed his password, which is a good thing, but that invalidated our OAuth token, which meant we had to update and redeploy our web app.
We really don't want to have to pay for another Salesforce account just to make a few REST API calls. Is there a free (or at least cheaper) account type that we could create to make those API calls?
This is the connection string format we're using, which does seem odd...like we have too much stuff in there. I'm inheriting this code. By supplying a token, username and password shouldn't be needed and I'm wondering if by supplying it and the token that the REST API is simply using the username/password properties instead of the tokens.
<add name="SalesforceLogin" connectionString="Username=___; Password=___; Token=___; ConsumerKey=___; ConsumerSecret=___; redirectUri=___;" providerName="NetToSalesforce.Salesforce" />
I believe we are only reading data, not updating/inserting/deleting.
