In our quest to make a mobile app that talks to our Salesforce.com Org we will need to add some configuration to our Org to allow the all to work. Lets head into our Org and do that now.
Login to your Org and head to Setup. I am using the Lightning Experiance so I will go to
App Manager or type
App Manager in the
On the “Lightning Experience App Manager” screen choose the
New Connected App button on the upper right.
New Connected App Button
New Connected App Screen Fill in the
Connected App Name,
API Name, and
Contact Email. then In the
API (Enable OAuth Settings) section select the
Enable OAth Settings check box and fill out your
Callback URLand add some of the OAth Scopes.
For OAth Scopes I am adding seven of them: `Access and manage your Chatter data (chatter_api)`, `Access and manage your data (api)`, `Access your basic information (id, profile, email, address, phone)`, `Full access (full)`, `Perform requests on your behalf at any time (refresh_token, offline_access)`, `Provide access to custom applications (visualforce)`, and`Provide access to your data via the Web (web)`
It should look something like this.
New Connected App Screen
Now save it and you be on the detail page for the connected app you just created. Copy the
Consumer Key from the
API(Enable OAth Settings) section
I highlighted where the
Consumer Keywould be in blue in the above screen shot.
Now that our Org is ready we need to update our app with the Consumer Key and the Call back Url. Lets take a look at that next time. Anythingyou want to add? Let me know by leaving a comment below, emailing email@example.com or following and yelling at me on Twitter/BrettMN.
