Passport strategy for authenticating with Saleforce using the OAuth 2.0 API.

This module lets you authenticate using Saleforce in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, Saleforce authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.


$ npm install passport-salesforce-oauth2


Configure Strategy

The Salesforce authentication strategy authenticates users using a Salesforce account and OAuth 2.0 tokens. The Consumer Key and Consumer secret obtained when creating an application are supplied as options when creating the strategy. The strategy also requires a verify callback, which receives the access token and optional refresh token, as well as profile which contains the authenticated user's Salesforce profile. The verify callback must call cb providing a user to complete authentication.

passport.use(new Strategy({
    clientID: CLIENT_ID,
    clientSecret:  CLIENT_SECRET,
    callbackURL: "http://localhost:3000/auth/salesforce/callback"
  function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    done(null, profile);

Authenticate Requests

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'salesforce' strategy, to authenticate requests.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:


  passport.authenticate('salesforce', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function(req, res) {
    // Successful authentication, redirect home.


Developers using the popular Express web framework can refer to an example as a starting point for their own web applications.
